    Power Adapter for apple is the worse

    I would recommend that apple need to reconsider a better to invent a better power adapter that last for a life time.

    Wear out too easily

    I have had to replace this adapter once already, now I have to replace it again. It wears out too easily. It seems like Apple purposely engineered their cords cheep so you have to continually replace them. We have the same problems with our iPhone adapters. They wear out by the end that plugs into the device. I love the magnetic element, as well as the LED and portability. Unfortunately, anything that requires replacement on such a consistent basis deserves less than one star, which is what I'd give it if I could.

    Piece of JUNK!! First power cord lasted an expected number of years, however the new power cord is poor quality and lasted less than a year!! Apple has obviously moved toward poor product quality....and what choice do you have but buy another one if you have a Mac product. Designed to fail is what I say, 'cause hey...why make a quality product when you know your consumer will have to buy it time and time again, especially at $75 bucks a pop!! Shame on you Apple.

    Mr.Charger

    The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter is good but nothing stay forever, I had this charger for about 1-2 years now maybe even more. I dislike this T-style on the little wire side, The first time I seen that I really had a bad feeling about that, that will cause me problems with the natural put away system.
    "Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage." from the apple web site.

    GET A PC

    Worthless product. The most these power cords last are 1 year (If your really lucky and never take it anywhere. I am on my 5th power cord for my 3 year old mac. For my multiple PC's that I have owned... I have never had to buy more then the one that it comes with. Never buying a Mac again because of these money hungry worthless products. GET A PC.

    works fine

    So I have had my charger for about 1 and a half years. It is a little scuffed up, but it works fine. If people would take care of their things they might not break as easily.

    Extremely Badly Constructed

    My L plug has had the rubber casing decay on my chord after only a few years of use. I expect far better when I pay the exorbitant amounts that apple demands, for what should be exceptional products. I am very disappointed, particularly as to replace what is the fault of apple is so horrendously expensive.

    Buying my third one :(

    I am so annoyed to be spending so much money on something that I know will break. This will be my third one!

    Apple - Why haven't you fixed the issues with these?

    There are so many one stars on this product, and all for the same reason! Charger doesn't last and gets extremely hot and is ridiculously expensive (esp. given all the complaints). These chargers have a life span of months to a year, both my partner and I have had to replace chargers and the newest ones we have, after only about 8 months, are crapping out on us. The rubber is just falling apart and the wires underneath are fraying out, they make weird sounds when connected, you have to move them to make sure they even work, plus they get extremely hot - and these were treated delicately after so many failures before. It seems like Apple is taking advantage of us! Why haven't these been changed and where is the customer service? This is pretty appalling.

    These charging very often break!

    My charging too broke. I love apple products, but this charge does not really so good. I do not want every time to pay $ 80 for this product, it is expensive for this quality.

    I love my Mac, but why these rubbish adapters?
    Again $99 for something that should be working.

    Awful

    Fell apart after a year of minimal use. Exposed wires, the whole thing. Even worse than the old T-shaped ones. At least that one lasted for 3 years before falling apart.

    60W MagSafe Power Adapter broke

    After 2 years of use the cord broke internally just at the adapter. This part should be more flexible and resistant as it receives a lot of "bending".
    Apple should review the design and produce a better model suited with the laptop design and durability.

    Making me consider not getting a mac next

    Look, apple, I get that you make money when people need to replace their charger, but you are asking too much of us. These things do not hold up AT ALL. I can't afford to shell out about 70 dollars each time to replace my charger. It's a shame, because I like my macbook Pro, but next time I need to replace my computer, the charger issue may make me go with a different computer brand altogether.

    Designed to Fail

    Everyone I know has used electrical tape and everything to keep the wires on their power supply from breaking. The insulation splits and opens up exposing the wires. Probably a fire risk and certainly soon to fail completely. This never happened after years of bag packing Dells and other laptops. This might be expected after a year or two but not within months with machines hardly moved. This is very bad design and just thickening and tapering the rubber would work to ensure a much longer life. This might cost less than a dollar. Shame on Apple for allowing their customers down when we expect only the best in design from Apple. I have resorted to adding a piece of flexible irrigation (drip) tubing over the attachment point to keep the wire from dangerous flexing.

    HORRIBLE

    I wish that I could rate it 0 stars. Seriously, I am on my third charger and there is no such thing as customer service from this company. Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave.

    Deeply disappointed

    I have the 13-inch 2008 MacBook. I had the T-shaped Power Adapter and worked for four years! Then suddenly, it got a little worn down and quit working. I thought, "Okay, this is kind of old. I can see why it stopped working." So I pulled money and bought a new pretty L shaped Power Adapter. Three months later--broken. Wiggling it won't even help. I am a university student with papers to write, two online classes, and now I have a Skype interview for a teaching position...with no computer. I can't just fish $80 from my crack to pay for a new one that may or may not work. I am so angry right now because I am using a local library's computer and having to choose between using this computer for my school (inconvenience) or buying an expensive adapter that probably will fail too! Ugh!!

    poor charger

    It just stopped working and then I checked where the cable connects to the charger and it sparked and now not even safe to try it again.
    Agree with All these posts. Amazing laptop, terrible charger.

    WORST CHARGER EVER

    These chargers are insanely fragile. I've had to replace mine 4 times now, I use it normally, I don't wrap it up tightly but still the thing frays and can no longer connect to my laptop. 30% is now wrapped in electrical tape because the plastic casing surrounding the cord is broken, the top part where it connects to the laptop has wires fraying all over the place. You would think for such a ridiculously expensive charger they would make it durable.
