    Deserves a Big Zero

    It's Honestly ridiculous that in three years I have had to change the charger three times ....When I have other computers ( non Apple) that I have bought before this one >> the chargers still work fine >

    I couldn't believe that product has been delivered by Apple >>> Jobs won't allow this !!!

    3rd Power Supply in a Year

    This is definitely one Apple product that can hugely be improved on. I've gone through several of these myself and I don't feel like I'm mistreating them at all. IMO the cable should come out of the magsafe connector at a 90 degree angle. It seems like pointing the cable towards the front or back is rarely a convenient angle and causes stress on the cable. Also, the magsafe connector is not a very handy shape to be pulling from. I'm a little guy and my fingers are not too fat but it seems like getting a grip on the little sucker is pretty difficult. The space between it and the surface the computer is sitting on is definitely too small to wedge my fingers into and get a grip to pull.

    Doesn't seem like it matters much to Apple but that's my 2 bits. Nothing much else that we can do about it other then buying cheap aftermarket power adapters, which I'm sure couldn't be any worse.

    Does not last.

    My t shape adaptor lasted four years. This new L shaped design has lasted a year. I baby my gear and am not impressed with the longevity of this product. I should be greatful that I got this much time out of it considering all the other negative reviews.
    I really don't want to pay $80 for another one. Over priced.

    Poor Quality

    I have gone through 2 power supplies so far. The way this adapter is designed, causes stress which wears out at the point where the cord starts. Apple needs a durable cord that will outlast the computer for a few years at least. If the adapter were more like a plug-in similar to the jack for ipod headphones..., somewhere else on the computer would be a good thing. Come on Apple for what is paid for an Apple computer, you think you could design a better power supply.

    Has a very short life

    This charger doesn't last long. I went through 3 of them already. An $80 charger by Apple should last several years. Very frustrating!

    Power Adapter is HORRIBLE!

    This is the second Power Adapter I've had (all original) that the cord breaks close to the little white box.
    I dont do anything weird with it, I just use it a lot and it keeps happening.
    So, now, for the third time, I'll have to buys another cord.

    Apple, FIX THIS!

    Broke my Macbook

    My Macbook stopped turning on even on full battery. I bought a new MagSafe charger and the Macbook finally started working again. THAT charger broke, so I switched back to my original one. As soon as I connected it to my computer, everything went black. The computer shut off, and won't turn on again. Now I have to dish out $80+ for a new charger AGAIN or more? I work from my computer and this is unacceptable.

    I am losing faith in Apple products

    This adapter did not last long. They get frayed at the magnet portion of the cord. Same thing applies to ALL the usb cords I have been through for my iPhones. At this price, it IS ridiculous and I am not a happy customer.

    Huge design flaw

    This is now my 4th MagSafe charger I've had from Apple after the others have yellowed and decayed after only 4-5 months. This one has now split! I keep it in one position mostly apart from carrying it in a laptop bag when travelling.

    Not only that, but now it is also deciding to turn yellow once again which suggests that the insides are cooking themselves. Who knows how long it will last me but I certainly won't be putting another large sum of money on an inferior product.

    Bring back the T-shaped chargers. They were absolutely brilliant!

    Excellent Product!

    I really love the design of the MagSafe Power Adapter, and they have never failed me. The power adapter has no issues so far as I can see, only one being that it could be longer. Overall, the adapter is a great product, and I have never had a problem with it. *Note: I am a Mac user of over 5 years, and I have only had to replace the adapter once, when my pet rabbit chewed the wire. I have never had to replace the second one.

    Pretty terrible.

    I have been using Mac products for more than 10 years now, and my iBooks, MacBooks and now my MacBook Pro have all required a replaced chargers. The MagSafe I am using now is less than a year and a half old, and it never leaves my desk, yet it became extremely hot two days ago, the casing split open, and it ceased to work. This is not a matter of my carelessness, but rather the inferiority of the product. I have no doubt that this review will have absolutely no impact on Apple's production methods, but I am extremely frustrated. Especially because I am a student and I do not have $80 lying around to throw at a charger that I should not need to buy so soon after getting a new computer.

    Rethinking

    In the past I have loved apple products. However, recently, I feel as if they're just too much maintenance and money. I have gone through numerous phone chargers due to shortages. Recently, my Apple computer charger broke. This was due to using Apple's design where you can wrap the cord. Be very very careful or it will break. Better yet, don't use it at all. Now I have to pay $80 to get a new one and who knows how long it will last. Definitely rethinking my future technology purchases.

    Good idea, to fragil, and way too expansive

    Before 2 years ago I was always a Bill Gates fan than my parents bought me a Mac for a graduation gift laptop works unbelievable but within 1 year the charger started to shrivel. In my opinion the charger should be better qaility and for $90 I'd rather buy a PC. So apple you have lost another costumer.

    Breaks so much!

    I have had my MacBook Pro for a year and a half and I am on my third charger. I take really good care of my chargers but it seems everyone that I order ends up with protruding wires and will not charge. If you can avoid this charger do so!!!!!

    JUNK ....TOTAL.....JUNK

    I have purchased 3 power cords in 2 years for my 2012 macbook air.
    2 new power cords in 3 years for my 2009 macbook.
    2 new power cords for my 4s in 1 year
    3 new power cords for my daughters 5
    3 new power cords for my sons ipod 5th gen
    1 new power cord for my wifes ipad 3rd gen
    Granted , maybe the kids are rough on cords, but D....

    To apples defense, they have replaced 3 cords that were under warranty.

    But i paid for 9 other cords out of pocket.

    Great products, INSANELY-A-W-F-U-L POWER CORDS

    Do apple make these?

    Last one lasted a couple of years and only after putting up with jiggling the connection and electrical tape repairs. My latest one is also falling apart at a rapid rate.

    These simply do not have the durability expected from apple products.
