    Absolutely rubbish

    Charger falls out of the computer even at the slightest suggestion of moving the computer. The old Magsafe Adapter was so much better.

    Form over function...once again.

    Poor Quaility: Cable Splitting After >1 year

    Cable is splitting and the inside metal wires are showing. Has barely been more than a year and I can't claim warranty for it now.

    worst magsafe ever

    the first one that came with MBA 2012 died after 3months (under good care)

    the second one last until today.. i hardly bring my charger outside because 7hrs of battery power is enough for my daily computing needs. this has to be the worst magsafe ever build it stop functioning under normal usage. my warranty already expired last month.. thank you apple. now i got a reason to unnecessarily over spending my november salary on your stupid and inferior magsafe 2 charger

    No idea with all the complaints

    I would not say that the charger is perfect, but I think it works well enough. Mine never broke or frayed. Even my old mag safe 1 never had any problems besides it getting dirty at the transformer(my fault). The only grip i had with mag safe 2 is that i wish the connector was more "L" shaped and not like the 30 pin connector. I understand why they did it (the new macbook pro with retina display it too thin.) but i wish it was less protrusive.

    All in all, Im quite happy with the plug as it is compact and easy to carry about.

    weak cable join

    two of my kids adapter have now split at the cable joint near the power unit. we have 2 of the older versions and have lasted 3 years so far of used by my older kid, wife and myself with no sign of wear and tear and stress. this is simply bad quality.

    MBA's weakest link

    I love the new MBA (MacBook Air) and I don't have an issue with the magnet on the power supply. The main problem is the power unit malfunctioning. After only 4 months the power unit just died, without warning. No light and no charge. I took it into the apple store, where it was tested and found to be faulty. I was then informed it would be further inspected by the technician and a 3-4 business day turn around. Meanwhile I can't use my MBA as it has no charge.
    With my unit and reading everyone else's dead power unit story's is that these power units die early. If you purchase a new MBA you can expect to have to return the power unit within a year. Which also means your MBA will be out of action.
    Considering the power units cost $100 theoretically you could be looking at spending $100 every year you have your MBA!!!!
    Apple really need to look at these power units. It seems a lot of people have similar short life spans on these things.

    Ok product.

    There is nothing particularly marvellously good or bad about this product. My comment to all the other bad reviewers is that I have had no problems with it, if it's broken get it replaced! Why do you have to rate it badly, I do 2 get the odd cable getting yanked out when kids run around cables but that I assure you is much better than your MAC FLYING into the ground! They are very durable unlike these other long ones with long thin pins that break itself and the whole pc if it gets yanked ground wards. I do recommend this product but make sure u get the correct wattage. Best go talk to the apple guys.

    Great Charger

    Love it. I can change the head for a long or short cable. Magnet plugs in well. LED indicates status. Smartest charger around!
