    Brick without the necessary brick accessories

    • Written by RYAN E P from Birmingham

    So you have to buy the USB C charging cable to make it functional, its a $h% design and apple has flatly demonstrated they hold their customers in contempt. I have no choice as this is what my business uses for code development and require Xcode so we are held hostage to this nickel and dime as others have clearly stated. They know consumers have little choice and they gouge us and it's no better than highway robbers of old, just in a different format on a different horse but still robbery and taking advantage. They use to deliver value for what they charged, now it's just about profit and this whole unbundling to piecemeal has gone to far..........I have to use them but I now hate apple and have been a user since the beginning and I do mean the beginning.

    Power Adapter for 15" MacBook Pro

    • Written by Steve C from Anthem

    I am giving this product 5 stars. It is the first power supply I have owned for a laptop that does not have the cord attached. All of my other cords disintegrate around the area connected to the adapter. This adapter allows you to store the cord separately keeping the weight of the unit off the cord. I am very impressed with the quality of the adapter. The cord coils nicely in a circle around the adapter and fits right in the bag. Great product. Great price.

    Let's See What Happens

    • Written by Justin R from NEW BUFFALO

    I have no qualms with not getting a cable with the brick, it is expensive, but it is Apple, so I guess I'll pay the Apple tax. My issue is that the 87W power brick that came with my 2018 MBP stopped working after less than two months. I went in to get it replaced, and when I got to the store it worked. Got home later, didn't work. I will attempt to get it replaced due to spotty performance, however if it doesn't get replaced then 1/5.

    What is this?

    • Written by Andrew M from Canton

    Why is this thing so dumb?
    -The heaviest part is stuck to the outlet. Most outlets don't have the strength to hold this silly thing in place.
    -The largest part plugs into the outlet. Generally, it would be nice if I could not upset people off by taking up 2 outlet spaces.

    This is not good for Apple's image, it can be easily fixed, and it isn't progressive/ innovative. Change it.

    These don't work.! They don't charge my 2018 MBP.

    • Written by David A from Danville

    I have made sure to test these with 100 w rated usb c cables and I have tried 4 usb c charge cables from Apple but it won't charge. I bought 2 87 w chargers also. Neither work. My 61 w adapter works fine. For this much money, this is a joke! This is the most negative review I've done.

    OVERPRICED APPLE AGAIN AND AGAIN

    • Written by JASON B from Brooklyn

    I'M SO OVER APPLE AND HOPE EVERYONE ELSE TOO. THIS CHARGER IS EXACTLY WHAT'S WRONG WITH APPLE. OVERPRICED AND NOT WILLING TO BUDGE. I BOUGHT A NEW MACBOOK PRO A FEW YEARS AGO AND NEVER WORKED WELL. IT WAS THE LOGIC BOARD THAT EVERYONE IS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH BUT THEY STILL MADE ME PAY HALF PRICE FOR A FEW ONE. $3700 FOR SLOW 16MEG COMPUTER AND THEN $500 MORE TO FIX THE LOGIC BOARD. $4100 FOR A LEMON. NEVER AGAIN

    87W USB-C Power Adapter

    • Written by HUGH S M from Tucson

    There is a CONSISTENT theme in the reviews of this power adapter, but clearly no one at Apple is listening. This "brick" represents old technology at an excessive price that is causing many of us to reconsider our brand loyalty.
    For all the money Apple spends on its brand, both in R&D and direct consumer advertising, this is a major self inflicted wound. The absence of any power indicator, method of storing the cable on the unit and the excessive cost both for the adaptor and the separate cable is insulting. I have been a long time Apple proponent, but like others I will begin to look at other options because any company that promotes decisions that are penny wise and pound foolish are no longer visionary.

    Selling the power adapter and the cable separately is the best feature!

    • Written by Art G from Pebble Beach

    In olden times, when the connection of the cable to the battery went south, we had to replace the whole thing.

    Now if the cable goes bad, you just pay a few bucks to replace that. And you can use any USB-C cable you want.

    So happy to see this!

    Service Shmervice

    • Written by Brad G from Greenville

    I drove to Best Buy through an hour of traffic to get a back up charger for home use. I got back home and no connector cable. Great. Was I the dumb one for thinking it would be included, or is Apple the dumb one? I'm trying to think of the last time I bought a toaster that had no cord or a toothbrush that had no bristles. Is this thinking differently?

    Maybe, just maybe, if the designer box did not have 3 pt type printed in 10% black, I might have been able to read that a cable was not included, if it says that at all, but I left my pocket microscope in my other pair of pants. Give me a break. I pay a premium for your hardware to begin with.

    My goodness Apple is getting cheap!

    • Written by Jens-Erik L from Stanford

    $79 for a measly charger is a ripoff, but at least it's by Apple, right? Wrong. Buyer beware that this pricey piece of plastic doesn't even include the cable that connects it to your device. So it won't work without another $19 purchase. Come on, Apple. After dealing with your flimsy, delicate MacBook Pro chargers for many years, you finally let customers remove the cable from the brick only so you can squeeze even more money from them? This is Apple circa 2018.

    A giant leap backwards.

    • Written by Vincent R from York

    Wow. It's not that it's so bad (it works), it's just a big step backwards. I remember when apple used to lead the design world. Everything that was cool about the power cord is gone. Yes, apple once made a boring power cord cool. Now? It's just plain and sad.

    No Cable...Rip Off

    • Written by Luke S from Ballwin

    I think it's absolutely ridiculous they don't include the USB-C charging cable with a new Power Adapter. All previous generations of Power Adapters include the cable. Now to get a second charging solution you have to spend nearly 100 dollars.

    Don't Get Ripped Off!

    • Written by Randal B from Friendswood

    This charger is Apple's worst customer ripoff ever. For $80 you get the brick, but no cable to go with it. It requires a cable with USB-C on both ends, which is not common, so don't think any old USB-C cable will do. I am sure that there are thousands of customers like me who did not read the fine print, expecting to start charging their MacBook immediately only to find that they are missing a $20 part. Instead of returning to the store to buy the requisite cable, (which raises the price of this charger to an astonishing $100!), I am returning it to the store for a refund and to buy a charger from a non-apple brand for probably half the price of this sad deception of a product. SHAME ON YOU APPLE!

    $79 ADAPTER DOES NOT INCLUDE CABLE!!!!

    • Written by Jason Y from Los Angeles

    Title says it all. As if Apple wasn't greedy enough, they now charge MORE for their new USB-C power adapters, but REFUSE TO INCLUDE A USB-C CABLE!!! As a sysadmin for a large company, I may have to switch our office of 100+ users back to PC's. As a life-long Apple user, I now feel alienated by their poor designs, lack of accountability, and complete ignorance to the needs of their customer base.

    So long Apple. I will no longer be purchasing or recommending your products.

    Poor design and lack of product

    • Written by CJ S from STEVENSON RANCH

    First off - this thing is a brick. Twice the size and weight as previous power adapters. You would think apple engineers could figure out a way to streamline it just a bit.
    Secondly, had to get a replacement power adapter and ordered this online. For $80 plus dollars it doesn't even come with a cord - only adapter?!!! Seriously apple? Of course the "new" usb c makes it impossible to use any of your other cords collecting dust in a drawer. Would like to use some other choice words - but sadly can't... Why the * would someone want only this brick of a power adapter and not the cord to plug in your computer. Major FAIL:.
    You are slowly and surely loosing my confidence that you have the consumer in mind with all your products.

    Everything about new Macbooks is terrible

    • Written by JASON K from San Mateo

    This adapter is poorly designed and has no cable management. It also weighs a ton! On top of that it has to plug into usbc like everything else so the amazing magnetic power plug in is gone so we are back to having the cable ripped out and damaging the computer. Every part of the new Mac Design is poor. ABSOLUTELY no thought was put into users on its design. Someone who has no clue what users want decided having all usbc ports was so cool!!!! News flash no one uses them and having 15 dongles sticking out of your computer is just plain dumb. What good is a mm less thickness and a pound or so less weight when you have 15 extra cords and dongles to carry around with you to be able to use simple things like a normal USB???

    Decent but outdated design and expensive

    • Written by Brandon R from Rising Sun

    I like it but like others have said, the design is outdated and this thing a heavy monstrosity which contradicts the superbly thin laptops. It is overpriced for what you get. No power cord whatsoever. What the heck is that about. That makes for a $100 laptop charger. Come on Apple.
