    Ugh

    If you are going to own a mac, there is really no choice of power adapter I guess. But after 10 months of owning a macbook air, I now have to jiggle around the power chord and see what position works. Everyday it is getting pickier and pickier. The chord has deteriorated near the tip, and will probably die in the next few days. 80 dollars, what more can I say?

    Apple MagSafe Power Adaptor for MacBook Pro

    Just over 1 year and it's broken... AGAIN

    Just over 1 year and its broken, no real surprise as I went through 3x MacBook chargers in 4 years.
    Apple should either make the cable a little bit thicker or offer free replacements... no chance of either of these happening anytime soon :'(

    Come on, Apple!

    I love my Air can't you do something about the charger problem? On my second charger and the cord on this one is separating.

    This is the worst Apple Product Design Ever! Period.

    I have gone through 3 adapters EACH for my Macbook Pro and Macbook Air in the past 2-3 years. And After a month or two of using a charger, I start getting electric shocks from the body of the Macbook. These cease if you replace (buy) a new charger. The chargers INVARIABLY FAIL between 5-13 months of use.

    Apple adapters are extremely poorly designed (probably the very worst in the market when it comes to durability) and on top of that, very expensive. Every time I buy a macbook, I go through 2-3 adapters in 2-3 years. The thin wire from the adapter to the magsafe port is the biggest problem. They should redesign the adapter with a removable wire with a magsafe pin and make the wire reinforced with a protective mesh like the gecko gear stereo to stereo wire.
    Apparently Apple has stopped listening to loyal customers.

    Why did I get a MacBook Air?

    Horrible product. Cord wears quickly and extremely overpriced to replace. A major argument against buying a MacBook Air.

    Poor quality, remarkably flimsy for its price

    I have had my charger for about 2 years now and it is taped in so many different areas that I am convinced it is more tape than actual charger. I find that the outer coating is very poor quality and tends to bend and break very easily. The position in which I keep my laptop on the desk requires that my charger is slightly bend right at the end which connects to my MacBook Air, within 3 months of keeping it in that position, the outer coating broke and required taping. I find that the price is very high for a product of such inferior quality and I would expect that Apple puts as much thought into the design, life, and durability of its chargers as it does for it's laptops.
    I would highly recommend that the company consider redesigning the charger and think about the long-term life of this product.

    APPLE PLEASE FIX YOUR CABLES!!!

    After reading the bad reviews of this cable I did everything I could to be careful with the one that came with my 2011 MacBook Air. My efforts made little difference. After about 6 months the rubber sheathing on the small cable at the spot where cable attaches to the magnetic end started to wear out and come apart. I wrapped the damaged stop with a material in an effort to extend the life of the cable but after about a year the cable stopped working. The cable sheathing material simply can not tolerate the wear at the endpoints. I've had this same problem with many iPhone and iPod usb cables.

    I recommend this minor and likely low cost change in the cable design to mitigate the problem....

    Extend the thicker sheathing at the cable endpoints an inch or two. This would keep the smaller cable from bending at such a sever angle at the end points and would keep it from wearing out as quickly.

    For the money you charge us for these cables and the lack of alternatives, you have an obligation to make a better product. Please fix the problem and rest my concerns that this is and intentional flaw designed to gouge us even deeper.

    Breaks easy, too expensive

    I've had my MacBook Air with charger for a year and a half now. One day the wires just broke in half at the base. I took it to the apple store to replace it and they told me it would be $80 for a new one.... Why would I want to pay $80 for a new one that's just going to break again out of no where? I'm probably going to buy one on amazon or something for half the price.

    Pricey, cheaply made, but have to have it

    Yes, we go through these chargers quite often. Still waiting on a "refund" of some made back several years ago. I think maybe the overcharge is for the ridiculous wasteful fancy bag it comes in. Come on Apple! Make these product's prices comparable to their quality. Jeeze!

    Australian warranty

    For those in Australia at least apple is required to give a 2 year warranty by law so take those bricks back and make them replace them

    Suddenly stopped working!

    I am currently using my gf's MBP adapter to charge my MBA. I bought this MBA in Aug 2011 and had no issues until May 2013. After 21 months of working fine, I tried charging it yesterday and the LED didn't turn on. What I don't understand is it was charging fine a week ago and I didn't charge my MBA for the past week and now it doesn't charge.

    After reading all these reviews, I am not really impressed about the quality of the charger. Even though mine lasted almost 2 years, this shouldn't be a competition for who's magsafe charger lasts the longest if eventually they all somehow stop working. I will take it to the Apple store and see if I can get it replaced as I am not looking forward to spending $79+ tax on a charger, especially when mine is in excellent condition still.

    Apple, just acknowledge after all these reviews for the MBA/MBP chargers that something needs to be done. A recall, a better quality product, a replacement free of charge, something...just do something instead of nothing!

    Low quality and high price

    I'm using my second one right now and today I found it doesnt work no matter how I adjust it. I'm seriously angry about it actually. I bought this Air in my freshman year and now, I'm not even a junior yet. Tho I will still purchase the third one.

    power cord poor quality

    The power cord started to fail after just a few months. It is very disappointing and so expensive to replace it.

    Disappointed

    After about a year of having a charger i found that the wire started to come loose by the adapter! It finally broke nearly setting on fire. I bought a new one and now the one i bought about 3 months ago is breaking. I am very disappointed. This product needs fixing and re-called.

    Unacceptable

    I can see that my adaptor cable is starting to fail as the light is now on intermittently when the cable is connected. It wouldn't be so bad if the cable was $25 but it is unacceptable at the asking price.

    This will affect my decision to buy any Apple products in the future as the design for this core piece seems to be planned obsolescence.
