    super disappointed

    just like everyone else here... this product is garbage. I don't take my lap top out of the house so id say i use the charger pretty gently and the rubber tore off already after 2 years now it won't charge. 100 for a replacement is crazy. Apple knows they can make something that lasts...but you don't get rich like that

    I like the design of the macbook pro, but Apple is letting down its customers by providing bad quality chargers. That's my 3rd charger in less than 3 years. It's appalling coming from a company like Apple. When will the company start listening to its customers and start making chargers that last? The replacement is awfully expensive and bad for the environment. Greedy Apple!

    Huge Disapointment

    Bought my first MacBook less than two years ago after having a PC for four years. The charger no longer charges. My old PC charger still works even after almost 6 years. Will never buy an Apple product again. I do not have the money at this moment to purchase a new charger, as I am an unemployed university student. This is unacceptable. Apple, the people have spoken - fix this issue.

    Premature Wear

    Had my current 60W Magsafe charger for a little over a year now, and approximately 7 months into the ownership, the rubber cord covering starting yellowing, wrinkling, and breaking off the cord. Of the three Macbook chargers I've had, this latest one demonstrates a clear downgrade in quality and durability. My first Macbook charger (acquired in 2007 with a Macbook purchase) was perfectly durable, outlasting the Macbook that had to be replaced in 2012. In my mind, the Apple brand once stood for quality, however, having gone through two chargers in three years has me considering another brand for my next computer.

    Additionally, not only is it a disappointment when it comes to durability, the price they are charging is quite ridiculous.

    3rd charger - buying one per year

    This is my 3rd adapter in three years. It yellows and breaks at the connector. Expect more from Apple. Bad product. Terrible value.

    Why the negative comments?

    This Magsafe 2 charger which originally came with my Macbook Pro 2014 is still in 100% working order. It has not yellowed, chipped, frayed, or disassembles in any way possible. The magnet after over 3 years of snapping on and off, mainly due to my huge german shephard, is still just as reliable as when we first purchased it. My expectations were exceeded and I recommend this product who has a computer with a Magsafe 2. This may only be comparable with the 13 inch macbook pro. Check your Macbook to see if this is the right charger for yours. Click the apple in the upper left hand corner and click "About this Mac". It will show you your computer info if you hit the more information button. I hope this helps everyone who needs it!

    Beyond Disappointed

    I have heard from some that this charger will not break if you are very careful with it, but when I want a laptop, I expect from Apple a durable and portable laptop, which they deliver on. However, I expect the charger to be just as durable, which it is very, very far from. The second of my chargers has broken. I have had this computer for less than 4 years, and to me, it doesn't make any sense for a charger to break within 2 years of use, and cost $80 to replace. I get it, things break, but if its going to break that often, I don't want to pay $80. Not only is it frustrating, its unreasonable. Nobody I know (that owns a PC laptop) has had charging cables break this often, or cost this much, most have never had this problem at all. Many of my friends with Macs have had this exact problem, as frequently as I have. To me, these chargers aren't worth the money, I will be getting a new computer as soon as I can, not a Mac for sure.

    The Only Charger You'll Ever Need

    Most of the reviews on this charger are negative, but I promise, if you treat this charger well, don't chew on it, and don't throw it places, it will last you a long time. I've had the charger that came with my MacBook Air for almost 2 years now and there is not a scratch. It's actually still really white. Treat your stuff well and it will last you for a very long time.

    The worst product in Apple history

    Yes... worse than the hockey puck mouse. Worse than iPod socks or Beats headphones.
    After all these years Apple has never seen fit to improve this part of the user experience.
    Even when being very careful, the lifespan of the cable/connector is woefully insufficient. If you like to hang on to a MacBook Pro for 6-7 years, be prepared to factor in the cost of 2 or 3 Power Adapter replacements. The cable will fail on you well before the unit that it powers will need to be replaced.

    Poor Design and Weak Build

    There appears to be a common thread in reviews here and mine will be no different. After about 2 years usage the cable at the end of the adapter has frayed and fully torn. In two separate places no less!

    The charger does its job, but it is clearly not built to last. There are now numerous threads of live wire exposed in the places where the cable has torn open.

    I would also like to clarify that this has come from regular usage. I don't travel with it that frequently and it usually stays in one room in an area without much movement.

    Though, based on stories I've heard and read I also wouldn't recommend buying a replacement charger from anywhere else other than Apple. As with most things Apple, you will have to put up with buying their incredibly expensive, proprietary - and in this case, poorly designed - items.

    These cheap chargers break. When will Apple make more resilient cords?

    After just a year of regular use, this charger is practically worthless. Why does apple continue to make these cords so cheap?! So frustrated.

    They keep fraying

    I have owned 3 Mac laptops and 6 adapters so far. I sincerely should know better than to re-purchase their product as I am constantly disappointed by their lack of durability. The last adapter I bought lasted me a big two years, and I consider myself to have been extremely careful with it. This is a problem that I have been waiting for years for the company to address. I don't care to have access to Siri from my computer, just make the adapters longer lasting please.

    I don't understand why apple makes a disposable charger. My computer was two years old when the charger began to be faulty and it is not fair to customers, as the charger is $80.00.
    Terrible deal.

    Weak sauce

    It's interesting to have an issue (cord fraying after just a year or so of use), do a quick search and find out that you're not even close to the only one with the issue. Bad execution on the MagSafe 2 Power adaptor Apple - something is definitely not up to par and it with the replacement at a premium price I believe this is an issue that deserves looking into and some sort of customer support provided since this is quite obviously not an isolated issue. And to provide additional background, I've had 2 prior MacBook Pros that haven't had anything like this and it's quite disappointing to experience shoddy execution by a company that I've come to expect much better from.

    Works very well

    All the negativity here is absurd. My charger that came with my 2015 MB Pro 13" is excellent. No mechanical issues whatsoever. I handle all my gear with care, especially when packing for travel. So, I don't sympathize with any of the negative comments here about poor build, etc. It's very well built and a good design. I dock off one star because it is over-priced -- $50 CAD should be the price for an extra unit. Not a hundred bucks. That's robbery.

    Footnote: Still using the adaptors that came with my 2010 MB Pro 13" and 15", and my Macbook Air 2011 adaptor as well. No issues whatsoever.

    If zero was an option

    Terrible quality. The plastic rips open causing the charger to stop working. I've gone through three chargers and I've had the computer for four years....Apple has terrible quality products that are way too expensive.
