Apple 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter for MacBook Air

  • Overview

    The 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Air stays put safely. It also helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect travelling companion, the adapter has a clever design that allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible only with MacBook Air featuring MagSafe 2 power port.

      Poor Product

      I've had Macs for over 30 years. By far, the most badly designed accessory for any Macbook or Mac Air or Mac Pro is the AC adapter. No matter how careful you ar I've had Macs for over 30 years. By far, the most badly designed accessory for any Macbook or Mac Air or Mac Pro is the AC adapter. No matter how careful you are, the adapter breaks and shorts out long before it should; it's the Achilles heel of Apple products. At this writing, my early 2014 Macbook Air is like new, but the AC adapter just shorted out. Please, Apple, there's no reason for this.

      Charger broke within 4 months

      After transporting my charger in my backpack, I was surprised to have found the cord to be frayed. Looks like a lot of people are having quality issues as well.

      Not so great of a charger

      This is a great charger until it breaks. I guess you have to use this charger if you want a Macbook, but I am not a fan. I am very gentle with it when I wrap it This is a great charger until it breaks. I guess you have to use this charger if you want a Macbook, but I am not a fan. I am very gentle with it when I wrap it up to store it in my backpack yet I have gone through 3 of them-- the 3rd one just broke and I am not happy about having to get a new one. They always seem to break at the base of the cord where it comes out of the adaptor.

      Dont Listen To These Reviews

      Look, I've had my fair share of issues with Apple. Having come from PC computers, these chargers are amazing in comparison. All of these reviews are people who Look, I've had my fair share of issues with Apple. Having come from PC computers, these chargers are amazing in comparison. All of these reviews are people who have probably done damage to their charges on accident. If you have a problem with your charger just visit Apple like I have done many times and get a replacement charger for free if it was a fault. Just don't listen to these reviews.
