    Still no good

    These chargers are still rubbish. When I bought my Macbook air, I asked the 'genius' if they'd improved the durability of the chargers, which they assured me that they had. Well, here I am, with a charger which has only survived the length of time that it has, thanks to the wonder sugru, with another charger which has died, the night before a big uni deadline.

    Please, can you make an effort to produce a durable product, rather than one which merely looks pretty...

    High quality of money but low quality of durability

    I've been using macbook pro from June 2012 and this year will be the 3rd year i use that. Well this type of charger seems not last as longer as the macbook itself. The charger starts to disconnect itself, the cable starts to peel off, and the casing starts to melt away.. Well, gonna get a replacement soon before the charger start to burn..

    They just keep breaking

    I am so unhappy with this cable. Just love the quality and design of all my other mac equipment but this cable ... it drives me mad! I don't mistreat it, hammer it or do anything i shouldn't. I even limit how much I use it but still, here I am, about to spend yet another £65 on my fifth cable. Not happy.

    Agree with Poor Design

    I am very happy with my Macbook, which has lasted over 6 years and still serves it purpose. As far as the charger goes, however, I believe this is the third time replacing it with what I would consider normal, every day use. The cord has come apart at the magnetic connector once again, and electrical tape helped for a while, but it is time to give in to purchasing another one. $79 is VERY expensive for a charger - I think I will definitely look into upgrading my laptop in a year in the nearer future and hope that the issue has been resolved in the newer models. I didn't realize this is so common until reading the other reviews.

    Pretty poor

    The only thing I am pleased about is that I am not the only one having issues! I don't use my MacBook all that often, and STILL am having to replace my second charger. Rubbish Apple!

    Rip off

    Can't believe the power cord has already frayed at the end! Reading reviews I see people in other countries are only paying $80 for a new one! So you are telling me I have to pay an extra $39 ($119 total) just because I'm Australian? And for a rubbish product that will break again within another year?! I'm very annoyed.

    Ehhhhhhh

    Second one in 3 years. For what Apple charges for their products you would think there would be a more reliable charger.

    I've had to buy three of these!!!

    I'm having to buy my third power cable for my MacBook Pro in two years.

    The power adapter is one of the worst products ever made by apple,
    the cable frays the rubber coating perishes within 12 months,
    the connections both at the box and at the connector break.
    A product is only as good as the weakest link,
    apple your power adapter is certainly your weakest link!!!!!

    Good bye
    ( If I could I would have given it a half star rating)

    Has lasted 7 YEARS and COUNTING!

    I bought my macbook pro in 2008 and have used it A LOT going through medical school and beyond. I have the ORIGINAL charger from 2008 and it is still in great shape with no tears (just looks dirty now). I take it everywhere- coffee shops, libraries, everywhere I have studied and even drag it along the floor moving from one couch to another, and it is still in great shape! Which makes me think:

    WHAT ARE PEOPLE DOING TO THEIR CHARGERS to make them break in 2 months (previous reviews) when mine has lasted 7 brutal years and counting!?!!

    Im finally upgrading to the new 12 macbook but will be giving my current mac and CHARGER to my nephew for continued use.

    Does Not Last...

    This is the third time I'm replacing my Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter. The design is WACK. The soft material that the cord is made from breaks very quickly… Thinking about buying a cheaper version. I'll see how that works….

    Terrible Product

    I've gone through three of these having a macbook pro for about 5 years. The first one I had lasted the longest but the second and third only lasted about a year each before breaking.

    POS 60W MagSafe Power Adapter

    "it just brokes "

    i lovve my mac , but every power adapter that i bought is broken (its about 1 adapter in a year). really.
    Dear Apple its a little thing that makes experience of using devise worse. We all want that revolution, when apple accessories would be best like apple devices!

    Such a bad product.

    It's not even been a year and i'm about to be on my third charger. I am a university student so this thing does go back and forth with me to uni everyday, but i make sure to stash the charger neatly in my bag, wound like it comes in the box.

    Worst charger design

    Bought a mac 4 years back and i love my mac, but as much as I love my mac, I hate my magsafe charger. Its a badly designed product, it just isn't suitable for normal day to day use. I have bought 4 chargers, each an year, because all of the chargers got ripped off from the head. At least they are consistent with ripping off every year. And to top all of this, every time you go to the store with the broken charger, asking the service people for help, you get to know that its your fault as a user, you don't know how to use a charger. I mean really ? These are the standards Apple is maintaining ? If your charger is not designed in a way to take wear and tear each day, its our fault ?? Around the world people are making chargers, and none of them go bad as easily as this one, none of them have such bad reviews. Maybe its time Apple takes up the responsibility of their badly designed product, and stop blaming their own customers cause at the end we always have a choice of never coming back to a company, while you guys rely on us.

    Great Charger

    I love this charger!!! I've had it for 5 years and it hasn't ripped once. you guys just need to treat it with a little more respect if its ripping so much.

    Here we go again!!

    I would say don't buy as it is probably going to need replacing in a year or two but not purchasing means loss of use from your laptop.

    3rd

    Really poor product. This is my third charger in the 4 years I've owned my Macbook.

    Poorly Designed

    The insulation on these adapters frays within 1 year of regular use. Meanwhile, the adapter for my gateway laptop has been intact for about 5 years. It's much sturdier than this 60W MagSafe Adapter.
