    Bad product

    I never leave reviews but feel compelled to add to the general disappointment at the quality of this product and the outrageous replacement cost of £65. There is no point building an elegant looking product if its not going to last.

    Worthless!

    I like the old style better. This one constantly disconnects at the slightest movement. I can't even sit down w/ this in my lap because the cord constantly just falls off. The magnet is not as strong as the old style charger. Which by the way I'm going to purchase. If it isn't broke. Don't "fix" it, Apple.

    Worst adapter ever!

    Too bad you can't give 0 stars. I have his adapter for 1 year and 8 months now and there's nothing left of it: the rubber cable is eating itself, it seems, leaving the wires vulnerable for whatever that can affect them. The worst part is that customer service does nothing about it, so you'll have to buy another adapter that costs 80 euro's with the only guarantee that you have to buy again after a year or so. Apple is known for reliable products, well there's a surprise.
    One solution though: use special tape (not sticky tape) to cover the cable..

    2 chargers in 2 years - MADNESS

    Why spend so much money on a good laptop to have to work with a horrible charger. The covering breaks and exposes wires and who knows if it won't catch on fire soon. Apple you need to do better. Im on to buy my third one now or maybe i should just buy a PC !!!

    Breaks!

    Have had my mac for a little over a year now, and my charger covering has broken in 3 places -- wires are now exposed. How could you make sure a cheap product with such poor design?

    Adapters are expensive and always breaking

    Been a Mac user for the last 12 years and the last two Macs I had, I was replacing adapters even though there was nothing wrong with the laptop.

    At RM349 a pop to replace a adapter that is fraying (and thus, poses a safety risk because it's got exposed electrical) and to find that despite improvements to Macbook design, the adapter keeps on basically BREAKING at the same place is probably the disappointing thing about apple. Never happened EVER with my old MacBooks.

    Fray Fixer a definite MUST NOW.

    Bad material

    I had several iPhone's chargers with the cords broken after few months. Now, the same thing happened with my MacBook Pro charger. The cord had broken and I'll will have to buy a new one after using it not too much and being sure that I'll have to replace it after few months again...
    Complaining at the store is not worth because you're told that you did not take care of it. I can say that I have a special case for all my chargers but it's not enough.
    I love Apple's products but the company must improve the quality of the chargers.
    Hope to be helped by the company.

    MacBook Pro Charger Poor Quality

    Have to agree with other reviewers. My cable has split. Really poor quality.

    Very poor design

    I am pretty fed up of having to buy at least one new charger every year. I'm really annoyed that the latest one I got hasn't even lasted a year. Why won't you listen to all the complaints and improve this.

    Had to replace it after 2 years

    Yesterday I bought a new power adapter because the one that came with my MacBook was broken. In my opinion, that's unacceptable. This adapter cost me €89 and broke down because of poor design. In the Apple Store the salesperson told me that I shouldn't roll up the cable anymore to prevent damage next time. But the thing is, I roll up the cable because of the clips that help you to roll up the cable, so is it my fault or Apple's? I understand you can't make a perfect adapter but please design one next time where you can replace just the cable that goes into your laptop instead of the whole thing.

    Bad design

    The part that is most likely to brake and fray is directly connected to the transformer so when that brakes you have no choice but to buy a whole brand new 80$ charger...

    I wish I could give it less than one star...

    Seriously terrible. I probably won't get another apple laptop simply because the charger is terrible. Broke within a year. Wouldn't replace it. To get it repaired is more than a new one. And there is no other option!! $100 every year for a new charger for a laptop that you pay over $1000 on is ridiculous. So upset!! Apple!! Fix this issue!

    Worked well

    In response to lots of complaints.
    I had zero issues with my cable, it worked well for 1.5 years, that includes travelling, moving it around the house from one spot to the other...then my terrorist of a puppy got a hold of it. But I can't blame the cable for failing after a puppy had a hay day chewing it.
    My brother fiddled with it and got it working for a couple months, then it finally bit the dust.
    Right now, I admit, I am trying to work up the courage the fork out $100+ for a new charger lol

    3 in less than a year

    My first charger cable split. Second two stopped working completely. Tried changing the fuses but didn't work. I have the 13inch 2015 retina display Macbook. Poor quality product, expected better from Apple.

    60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter MB Pro 13 in retina display

    Terrible that I am replacing this so soon. Complete turnoff. Had my Toshiba laptop for forever and never had a problem with their cords. Then to be charging $80.00 for them....well, that's a ripoff. Make me start to think I made a big mistake going with Apple, so may go back to PC when I need a new laptop. My cord is almost completely severed and I have been nursing it for a long time, but low and behold, tonight I had work I needed to get done for tomorrow morning and I can't get this thing to charge.....not good! I have not had the laptop that long either!!!

    Power adaptor

    Well i have only obtained the mac pro from 2014 and its been al most two years. nothing wrong with the laptop accept the adaptor. I tried and i tried. It beats me when i see the price for it and the quality does not last long. Unfortunate i cant pay that much of amount, since i am studying and dont have the luxury of buying something that is very expensive.

    Cheap

    It is ridiculous how quickly this charger falls apart. I am so furious that I paid so much for my computer and now my charger has come apart. The casing on the outside just fell off and the wires became exposed. The worst part is that I have no options, I have to buy an $80 dollar replacement that will mostly go bad before the year is up. Seriously shoddy product.

    Poor Quality!!

    I am buying a new power adapter every year, and I am not happy about it! This is my 3rd one. They are not cheap! I like the magnetic attachment, but this product is designed very poorly. There really isn't any alternative to getting another one when the old one stops working.
