    L shaped cord epic fail

    This is my fourth power cord from apple, you think they would get a clue and fix the issue. Enough with design make a product that works. They charge 80$ for a new one I'm being robbed and I'm am so annoyed. This is absolute foolishness, I buy apple products because there supposed to have great quality I don't see that. My L shaped cord keeps breaking in the same spot and on top of that this last one nearly burned my house down. Apple needs to get it together or I'm switching.

    Horrible quality

    The head of the adapter that comes with the charger bailed out on me this week. I have only have the adapter for 1.5 years now. I have to spend $79 just because the wiring is a sad excuse for durability. What a waste

    Really!

    My charger for my MacBook started being unreliable a month ago then I fugured out why because the cord came disconnected from the magnet. Then I started looking and found all the reviews about people being so upset about this product being a POS. I am amazed that Apple has not done anything about this. I have apple everything and am shocked at why they want $80.00 for a customer to buy another apple mistake. SO shocked at this one. Horrible job Apple!. Horrible!

    Needs a major redesign!

    The magsafe part is pretty awesome, but I've gone through about a million of these--they are very poorly made, and the thin cable always breaks from wear--not a good design! Also, can you give use a zero star option? This product isn't even worth a single star.

    Its not like you have any other option...

    Make sure you handle with oven mitts!!! I have a bubbling, blistering burn on my leg from this charger. On the plus side, it charges my computer really well (thus the reason I gave it an extra star for charging so well... and i like that its magnetic). But seriously, be careful about how hot it gets. Wish I could show you my oozing burn from this bad boy.

    Great Product, But ...

    The adapter is great and I love it. But it gets scratched easily and the top of the cord near the mag safe gets broken easily! Not such great price tag, but its excepted from Apple.

    Expensive, breaks often.

    I am going to be on charger number three in two and a half years. The chargers just stop charging eventually. It's also ridiculous to pay $80 for something that breaks so often.

    Wonderful disposable adapters

    I love Apple. I love them so much that I look forward to my magsafe adapter failing yet again so that I can transfer more of my money to Apple's coffers. Gotta love the "functionality" though. Use it for a few months and then chuck it for a new one. Wish other companies catch-up on the fine-art of designing disposable adapters. At least one technology Apple truly "pioneered". I pity those poor suckers using ancient PC technology. Oops...just realized that I spent too much time typing the review not noticing that my magsafe now shows only a faint green light. It's ka-ching time for Apple!

    Magsafe Charger

    I love my 13 inch macbook pro. I've had it for five years, and it still runs faster than this dell for which I am writing this review. The only trouble I've ever had with the power adapter is that sometimes the light doesn't turn on, or it will say its not charging. When that happens I just unplug it, then plug it back in. Always fixes the problem. Unfortunately, our new dog bit through my cable which is why I'm buying a new one. 5 stars on the product, 1 star for the price. (its just way to high!!!)

    Why is this $80

    I have had my MacBook since I graduated high school, going on three years now. It is an absolute dream! My sister's PC died on her this year, we bought our laptops at the same time. To my utter dismay however, MY CHARGER IS FRAYING AT THE CONNECTION FROM THE PACK! I have NEVER seen anything like this before with a laptop charger! I thought it would be an inexpensive things to replace and I search it on Apple and it is $80. This is OUTRAGEOUS!

    Charger is no where near as good quality as the computer.

    This is the second charger that has broken in a little over two years. It is unacceptable that the charger would break so easily. The charger is 80 dollars and for that money I would expect much better quality. My first one would work for about 15 minutes then over heat and stop charging. My more recent one has just brok at a friends house for no reason. I just wish that chargers were as good quality as the computer.

    Love my Macbook Pro, HATE the charger!

    If I could give this a zero I would! My macbook pro is wonderful, but the charger started tearing at the charge zone and is working it's way up after a year. After having this for 20months well taken care of the charger died! I'm planning on going into Apple tomorrow to complain and see what they can do for me. If they think I'm going to dish $80.00 they have another guess coming, I'll look on eBay!

    Overdesigned/overpriced piece of garbage

    One of the worst things Apple ever came up with. What a load of nonsense that the magnetic connection prevents undue strain, etc.

    These things are notoriously unreliable, as attested by the huge number of negative reviews. My daughter's MacBook cord lasted a little over a year. I just thought she had been too rough with it, that is until the one for my MacBook Air started malfunctioning after just 3 months of light use.

    I've owned a lot of PC laptops, and some of them eventually had power supply problems - but never in the first 5 years, let alone 3 months!

    Apple should provide free replacements, plus pay shipping etc, to anyone who has one go faulty in less than 24 months. Of course that would cost them millions - but maybe then they'd fix their design rather than making profit by selling such overpriced pieces of garbage!

    Dosn't Last!

    When you buy a $1300 laptop you expect the power cord to last 2-3 years at least. I have had mine for 18 months and its dead. I hated sheling out another 85 bucks for a new one but I had no choice. I do however have a Genius Appointment and they may replace the bad one for me. I will update.

    Terrible Power adapters

    I really do not have a word for it, however this is the most annoying product. its more annoying because i thought it was more durable. I have had to change my Power adapter 4 times in two years. in addition to changing the base which completely came off, hard drive completely fried and track pad going haywire. I am really disappointed, more disappointed because i had to save some money just to get the almighty mac. not so mighty after all.

    Great Charger

    The only reason I bought another charger was because my dog chewed off my original charger.

    $80??!!

    I love my Macbook but the charger is unreliable. I have had my computer for a little over a year and it just stopped working. Based on the reviews, I see I am not the only one who has had this problem. I am a little shocked that $80 is the cost for a new one. Hopefully apple will consider fixing the problem so I won't need to replace one every year. :(
