    Get it together Apple!

    for a company that makes killer products you would think that it could come up with a design for a power cord that doesn't break down after a year. I have had 3 cords in the last 5 years and the issues have always been the same the small exterior sheath deteriorates exposing the first layer of wires. This always seems to happen right near the power supply box. I will end up getting another one but only to maintain consistency with. I am not a fan of third party power solutions.

    You should have extended your warranty..!!!

    I wasted so much money and bought two apple products a macbook pro and an itouch, although I must admit the machines are top class products but accessories are worthless. First my apple earphone stopped working,I thought I was just unlucky then my power adapter broke down.These r absolutely not worth their money .I promised my self dat day.I will never buy an apple product again.

    What the heck

    I love my mac book but this is my third power cord in 3 years. The first one sparked and caught fire at the end. The second one just burned out. Well, the third one just stop working. These things are very expensive. I went out and bought a PC laptop because I don't know when my mac book power cord is going to go up on me. I'm frustrated and very dissappointed at wasting my money on a product that supposed to be superior to all only for it to fail.

    Bad

    This is a disaster, extremely fragile stuff, on top of it very expensive. Mine broke after 9 months only, whereas I never experienced that on my 6-year old PC.....PLEASE IMPROVE THIS !!!

    Sparking

    This charger is terrible! I've had this charger for 2.5 months, and it already does not work. Whenever I plug my charger in it begins to spark and the plastic melts. I do not trust the charger anymore. On top of that a new charger is $80; are you kidding me Apple? What a waste.

    Most of Mac Power Adapters are bad quality!

    I love apple product, but the biggest problem I found so far is Mac Power Adapters! they keep breaking and breaking! I change two already in two years time and a lot of my friends had same problems with Mac Adapters! We pay good money for great product, but unfortunately I can't say the same about Apple Adapters! I'll give 2 out of 10 marks!

    This is ridiculous.

    The first charger I had for my Macbook lasted 5 years. Since it broke I have been through 3 in the last year. What did you do Apple? If you are going to make disposable power adapters then the price should be much lower. I am seriously considering changing to a PC based on this power adapter fiasco alone.
    FIX THIS PROBLEM!!

    Doesn't last a year

    I have a 2009 13" Macbook, and the original cord that came with it lasted me 2 years but since then I have bought 3 replacement chargers, they are expensive and they can't even make a good product. The cord bubbles around the connection and then the wire breaks or it stops working. I am fed up of this.

    3 chargers in 3 years

    I love my Mac and although it is starting to over heat after having it for just over 3 years now it is still fast and reliable but this is another story with my charging cables! They are absolute rubbish. I have had to spend over £50 every year on a new one as 3 have broken! One for each year i've had it!! To top it off and the reason i am writing this comment my third one just broke as the plastic started to peel away and just stopped working... They are a Nightmare, also they are so awkward with their layout and positioning on the macbook... Not good!

    Awful

    This is the worst charger ever, i am on my 4th one now, they just last long enough to get past the warrantee, first one just died, the second one the top fell off, the third wouldn’t charge only on occasion, and the forth the top fell off, Apple please upgrade this product.

    Doesn't last

    I've had my Macbook Pro for about a year and a half and have gone through 2 chargers. I take good care of them but this is the second time my charger has suddenly stopped working, forcing me to spend $80 more for a new one. I'm usually a huge fan of Apple products and their durability and reliability, so I'm not sure why they haven't addressed the problem so many are having with this charger.

    Stoped Working

    It worked great for a year exactly and today I plugged it in my 2011 macbook pro and nothing it won't charge. I have tried it off and on all day and get mixed results sometimes it works but then as soon as I unplug it and try and plug it back in nothing. I wish they would go back to the old design.

    $80? Seriously?

    I'm using electric tape to hold my flimsy charger together and it's officially broken after two years of owning my Macbook. Then I go on your website to find out how much a new one costs, and find out it's 80 dollars? I swear, Apple, one thing that makes me so mad about your company is that your products are so expensive. It's a flimsy, easily breakable charger! It's not worth $80! $80 should guarantee me a charger that works for at least 5 years. This is garbage. And what's messed up is that I don't trust buying it from anywhere else in fear of it breaking in a week. But you know what? I'm taking the risk because there's no way I'm buying it from your company. $80. Get real.

    Poor Design

    I have had mine for 2 years now and it still works just fine, the thing I hate about it is the design of it. It's so big that you cannot have 2 items plugged in at the same time on a traditional wall outlet.

    And you believe you're unlucky?

    My magsafe finally died after 13 months of use. It simply died without any damage or accident. Pathetic.

    For you whom believe you're unlucky, you must realize that this product in my country costs U$157, almost the double of the US price. That in a country where a regular person makes U$6000 per year in average.

    So, yeah, this made me regret affording a macbook pro.

    Horrible

    I have had my Macbook Pro for about two years now, and in those two years I have had to buy charger after charger after charger. They do NOT last. Apple needs to rethink both the design and the functionality of their chargers.

    MacBook Pro charger ...

    While the magnet to connect is an EXCELLENT idea and patent ... The complete product is undermined by its tendacy to break, get hot and melt at connection of the base. This is a continued issue with Apple's adapter. ReThink it and make me proud.

    I'm unsatisfied with this $80 adapter that melts and could be a fire hazard.

    It gets so hot, I'm surprised no one has report a fire caused by this device.

    Please READ before purchasing a macbook

    Don't get me wrong the performance of the Macbook is superb...but the CHARGER. It cost $80. $80 for plastic that breaks frequently throughout the year. Unlike others who literally had parts of their charger melt of or the flimsy wires snapping mines just...broke. Now I have to get a charger for the third time. That is 280 dollars, its barely been a year since I've owned a Macbook. Like others I looked to the macbook as an investment for me so I wouldn't have to worry about replacing my laptop during my college years. I thought the money would be worth it if it had lasted me at least my undergraduate years but I can't afford replacing the charger. Those 80 dollars are supposed to be put aside for food, tuition, and rent. Instead I find myself repeatedly paying for these chargers. If this continues, I would have paid for several computers by the end of my undergraduate years without even having this one break. I can't even look to other websites like amazon, the prices may be cheaper but the charger only lasts a week if I'm lucky. If I could go back in time, I would stop myself from buying this computer solely because of the charger. And the fact that this has been going on for years shows the lack of respect this company has for its customers. Its disappointing and if I have to continue buying more chargers I might as well buy myself a new computer. Apple, just fix your charger.
