    These chargers won't last long

    I almost got 3 chargers since I own my Mac for last three years. Bad thing is the wire gets worn out and gets cut. Apple should make this better. The price is really ridiculous.

    Worst quality ever

    I have just three months using the original charger of my brand new macbook and i just noticed minutes ago that i will have to spend 80 dollars to buy a new one because mine no longer works, the cable that goes from the charger to the computer is too fragile, I think that every new macbook should bring 10 chargers, maybe that will guarantee us 2 years without having to spend 80 dollars on a new charger.

    I just hate that i can't give 0 stars in this review.

    Charging $80 for a cheap cable quality in unacceptable!?

    connector fell apart - again

    MagSafe is a poorly designed charger. If you are very careful about the way you handle it, you might get a maximum of two years out of it. My Macbook Pro is about two years old, but I just had to replace the charger again. Very expensive for something that will fall apart in one year.

    Terrible

    I have one 45W and one 60W power adaptor, both failed roughly after one year of use. Power adaptor should last much longer than this. I never have power adaptor failure other than Apple's.

    Complete design disaster

    Have my Macbook pro 2 years and the power cable is ready for the bin. It is only suitable to be used one direction as blokes the ethernet socket but then can put a lot of pressure on the joint if the cable is located towards you. As a result they break and then resort to fiddling to get the cable to work. Its a common issue and then Apple are smart to charge €79 for a new one. Love my mac and have many other Apple products and this is the biggest thumbs down item.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible

    Looking for the 3rd replacement within two year. The cable to the Macbook tends to break at both ends. If Apple simply would build in plug in the adapter allowing to only swap the cord (similar as the power cord on the other end) you would only have to replace the cable instead (10 to 15 euros tops ) of the whole adapter (€ 80). Another option would be to put some more rubber around the cord so it does not break that easilly

    Looking at the review on this site, Apple should be deeply ashamed that after year, they are still supplying this horrible adapter.

    This is by far the worst product Apple makes and they haven't put in any attempt to correct it.

    Poor Design

    I've gone through three of these bad boys in the last 3 years. What really irks me though, is that the design hasn't changed. Regardless of this product barely getting over a 1 star, Apple hasn't listened to its customers. Basically, your charger will short out on you regardless of how you take care of it, so just expect to shell out a few hundred dollars on replacements over the lifespan of your computer. Very disappointed.

    Terrible Design, Unsafe

    I am about to purchase my third power adaptor for my Macbook Pro. The laptop itself is less than three years old, and it's ridiculous that I need to purchase a new cord once a year because it is so poorly designed. The first one shorted out and just died. The second one shorted out and burned through the cords - nearly severing the cord from the adaptor entirely (and causing a nasty electrical burning smell). Here's hoping the third one will last just a little longer.

    Poor Quality

    I have gone through 2 of these. At 70 dollars a pop, it's not ideal. The only negative I have with my computer.

    Break way too frequently.

    3rd time I've had to buy one. I'm done with this.

    Glad I'm not alone, but sheesh!

    About to buy my THIRD power adaptor! First one actually lasted about a year (thank goodness!!!) before the cord pulled out of the MagSafe plug. I kept it going for a while by just "stuffing" it back in, but finally sprung for a new one when the short started shutting the computer down (this is probably not good!). In two weeks - the first time it got just slightly yanked - the new one's plug separated from the magnet, which stays stuck in the computer. I can squeeze it together and it kinda works, but another three weeks later the cord is cracking at the same end!

    It's a great idea, but the construction is awful!!!

    Horrible quality.

    Why is the cord made from such poor, inflexible material? Even Dell makes better chargers than Apple. The material is completely unsuitable for bending and wrapping which are essential if you want to charge your laptop on the go. The material that encases the wires inside split open and the wires get damaged, and then you need to shell out $80 for another horrible charger. I enjoy using my Macbook, but what good is a Macbook that can't charge? I'm going to be using my spare non Apple computer, and probably won't purchase this charger; it's just going to break again in a few months.

    Cheap quality cable cracking

    This is my second charger cracking the insulation (cheap white rubber) by the computer end. Charging $70 for a cheap cable quality in unnaceptable!?

    Complete Junk!

    Need I say more. Just read the other reviews.

    Although mine has lasted over 2 years (I guess that's good for these?)

    But I went to unplug my computer today and the connector was so hot it actually burned my finger. These could actually cause fires or potential for serious lawsuits.

    I would suggest a recall or better design. I LOVE my mac and iphone but the cords are garbage!

    Worst Charger Ever

    Mac chargers are very expensive and break so easily! The wires feeding into the computer clip are ultra prone to getting damaged. I have replaced my cord several times with several models and no matter how careful I am, it's life span is woefully disappointing. For the price, it should be far better. At the very least you should be able to replace only the section prone to damage and not the whole cord!

    Needs another redesign

    I replace this one for my MBP 13" about once every year. That money could be used on upgrading my laptop but instead I have to waste it on a poorly made product. It tends to fray right at the base of the connector and eventually stops working (probably not even safe to use at that point). Very annoyed. I'm only writing this because I just noticed my current one is starting to fray. Purchased last February.

    Otherwise it does it's job. It charges.

    unsatisfactory product

    I take extremely good care of my computer + laptop, and after only 2 years the adapter just stopped working.
