    Missing my magsafe

    Greatly missing the magsafe connection.

    Like that it uses standard connectors, but its easy to make this thing accidentally fall on the connector, which will permanently ruin it. :(

    Unreliable?

    My 3 week old MacBookPro came supplied with this adapter. Failed. I'm hoping its replacement has better longevity.

    Safe clean design.

    This is the charger of the future, what what it does, which is provide the MacBook with an incredible 61W of USB-C power, it's an incredible piece of engineering.

    What most people fail to take into account is the fact that this is engineering at it's finest, a clean box that doesn't overheat while still providing maximum oomph to your sleek MacBook Pro (or any other device needing angry pixies)

    With USB-C I can charge any USB-C device, so I can use the same charger, with the same USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 cable to charge my fancy BeoPlay A1 speaker, and because B&o engineered this to comply with the new USB-C standards, the little speaker will actually make great use of all 61W of angry pixies.

    My only gripe is that this isn't a 100W charger, because that is the maximum USB-C allows, but that would mean an even bigger charger.

    I bought the Power Adapter Extension Cable because I like to be able to work with my computer anywhere, and sometimes even charging it, but this might be excessive, but I appreciate that the charger doesn't come with this extension cable like previous chargers or computers did, because most people don't need this, so it's a bit of a waste honestly.

    Good Quality

    There's nothing special about this power adapter. Its AC to USB-C and works for the 2016 13" MacBook Pros, I received mine with it. Use an Apple USB-C to USB-C cable, or grab a good one off Monoprice, but I would stick with Apple products when messing with power. Build quality is good as always, it's the same size as the Magsafe charger on the older MacBook Pros (The 12" MacBook has a smaller wall adapter).

    It's definitely a shame this doesn't ship with a USB-C cable included, but in terms the physical charger is very good (just make sure you get an Apple USB-C cable).

    NO CHARGING CABLE

    THis $89 adapter does NOT come with a USB-C charging cable. Absolutely useless. So if you are buying it because, like me, you want to leave a charger in the office, then you also have to buy another charging cable which is another $25. Apple's new motto seems to be to nickle and dime early adopters, a good strategy to lose customers.
