    Strange!

    I have read the reviews and I am astonished. The charger I brought is perfect has a good quality feel about it and I have encountered zero issues.

    Terrible

    I have never managed to get a power adapter to last 12 months. These are just the worst product.

    POWER FAILURE!!!!

    I'm astonished that my power adapter has just blown after such low usage. I replaced the fuse twice to no avail. Now after seeing all of these negative reviews I feel that even a new £70 adapter won't last. Come on Apple if you can build reliable computers surely a reliable power adapter has to be a breeze. This is the first time I've had a power adapter fail on me, even cheap ones from other devices have outlasted this supposed quality product.

    Not good.

    I can pretty much echo most of the reviews on this product. It gets hot and the end is fraying. Yes i will need to replace it as I use the computer in a work place and the cable will not pass the electrical safety test (PAT)

    Unreasonably poor quality chargers

    A simple review in line with all others - why, when you manufacture such amazing products, would you create such a fantastically sub par product to go with it? The build and material quality on the cables is absolutely dreadful. The mark up on made on a £79.00 charger must be ludicrous and if it's not, I seriously question your choice of inputs - if indeed your supplier is charging you anything more that pennies for the materials you're getting taken for a ride Apple. Please, for the love of quality, sort out your chargers.

    3rd one so far

    The quality of the wire and it's casing is so bad that I had to replace it for the 3rd time. The first one I had almost caught on fire when I left it plugged in overnight. Luckily I woke up from the burning smell. To be fair I just ordered the 3rd one before my current charger gets too damaged (It still works but casing of the wires is broken and in some places you can see the wires inside), to avoid any house burn down.
    The choice is this or a knock off version unfortunately.
    For an expensive brand, sure this product is a great disappointment.

    Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter

    This is a great product. Have had mine for 4 years. I am buying my third Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter because I like them so much and want to have one in my bedroom, my home office and now finally , my living room. It is just so much easier if I do not have to unplug and bring it with me. I heartily recommend this product. never had any problem at all.

    I would give Zero star

    I would expect the charger that came with the machine that cost me over USD $ 4000, was of super-quality lasting for at least a decade. I treated the charger extremely carefully, but it didn´help at all. Personally, I think Apple should offer a new charger for free of charge to anyone using this charger. I had to pay $79.00 only for a new single charger. A crazily overpriced item with no equivalent quality. This was a huge dissapointment that I will remember for a long long time, unfortunately.

    Short life time

    From reading these reviews I've realized that I'm not the only one who's charger shorted out after just 16 months of use. To be fair I do tend to accidentally leave my charger on fabrics or when removing it I don't do so extremely gently but isn't that the point of MagSafe, to be able to pull the cable out without damaging it or the laptop? I think that Apple should 1.Bring back MagSafe to new laptops. 2.Make the power box bigger to try and reduce heating. 3.Make the cable going into the computer thicker as it becomes very flimsy making it brittle and maybe it being so thin be the reason why the box may overheat? I am not an expert but I would consider some changes to make the charger's life last longer and also for such a weak charger why does it cost £79!? That's just disgraceful

    Absolute Rubbish

    On my 3rd charger and having to fork out a fortune every time. Not the quality I've come to expect from Apple !

    Gets too hot!!

    I have bought three new MagSafe Power Adaptors now. Come on Apple....your adapters get too hot and the cable becomes scorched and splits exposing the wires after a very short time. Read all of the poor reviews. We can't all be wrong. This will be a Class Action waiting to happen if a fire occurs!!

    Terrible...

    This is the third Apple charger I have bought for my rMBP-15. First one died after 2 years, second one frayed at the mag end and now this one has frayed as well. Never again. I am going to pick a new band of laptop for my next purchase. Steve would be ashamed of this product.

    Failed after 3 years of sitting on my desk.

    My MagSafe 2 charger died after only 3 years of sitting on a clean desk with plenty of air ventilation. I have an L shaped MagSafe charger from 2011 which is still going strong. Not sure how an older charger which has been through the ropes with harsher treatment then this newer charger is still working great while this one died on me. I noticed the orange light was no longer lighting up on the T connecter while the MacBook pro was charging. The green light would come on once the MacBook pro battery reached 100%. Now no light at all whatsoever and now my $2700 dollar can't be charged until I pay Apple $80 for a new charger. So until I pay $80 I have a $2700 paperweight due to Apple knowing these charges are junk. GG Apple. This makes sense why you only warranty anything for 1 year. Also it's very ironic that lots of Mac users report their MagSafe 2 chargers failing just about right after the 1 year mark. Coincidence?

    Disposable

    The poor quality of this charger is a bad match for a nice Macbook. Price is not even close to justified.

    Excellent

    Approaching 3 years with zero issues. Mine has been very durable, while my girlfriend's charger fell apart after about 2 years of use. Guess it comes down to proper usage and care.

    Terrible quality, dangerous.

    The wires frayed very quickly on both the adapter and the extension cord, which is a fire hazard, and stopped working after about 13 months. The second one died with wires melting and sparks flying. Rince and repeat ever 13 to 16 months, they keep on dying the same way, all originals purchased from the Apple store. At the price they cost (about 4 times what I pay for a PC equivalent), it's unacceptable.

    Power cord disintegrating.

    Power cord poor quality. Rubber insulation now shredding from cord. Can't tape it up fast enough. Have to purchase new one for $79.00 plus tax....

    Terrible product

    Considering Apples prestige of products and attention to detail, this is a real shame.
    The charger gets really hot to the point that is is a possible fire hazard, too hot to touch and I do not dare to put near any fabrics or carpets. I understand batteries get hot when in use but this is really worrying, make the charger bigger? fire proof the charger with a heat resistant material?

    Thank you.

    Terrible.

    This charger falls off of the computer so easily, leaving my computer not charging overnight. Also, it is disintegrating and tearing apart. I do not use this charger in a manner that would cause it to tear apart, I leave it in the same spot and plug in my computer every night, rarely does it get put in a bag or bent. I do not understand why this product is so poorly made. Definitely not worth $79.00, I am very displeased with this charger.

    Outer layer of cord splits and frays quickly

    Under very light use the outer layer of the MacBook end of the cord disintegrates. The entire cord then slowly falls apart and becomes dangerous.

    If you get two years out of it you are lucky. I'm on my third one. I only wish I could give it zero stars.
