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.

      Ugh

      You have to use this is you have a new MacBook Air, but it is frustrating to the max. It absolutely will not stay plugged into the laptop unless you are not usi You have to use this is you have a new MacBook Air, but it is frustrating to the max. It absolutely will not stay plugged into the laptop unless you are not using it, and not breathing and there is not a fan on in the room. Only slightly exaggerating. It is the worst. Impossible to use while you are using your MacBook on your lap. The slightest move makes it come unplugged. Slightest at all. I miss my old MacBook Pro and it’s charger plug.

      Bad. Bad. Bad.

      Ok. I own the MacBook Pro and a newer Mac air. On the MacBook Pro, I had to replace my cord 3 times in6 yers. On my Mac air, I have had to replace it 2 times in Ok. I own the MacBook Pro and a newer Mac air. On the MacBook Pro, I had to replace my cord 3 times in6 yers. On my Mac air, I have had to replace it 2 times in 3 yrs. Now I’ve experienced major crackling, sizzling sounds from 3 of the different cords. They all get VERY hot after a couple hours. These things are over priced for what you get. No Apple product should snap crackle n pop and I’ve experienced it several times with different cords. They burn out quick. Surge protector or not- it doesn’t matter. I WISH WISH WISH they would come up with a better design. I love me some �� Apple but these chargers are sh#!

      Terrible!

      I absolutely love my MacBook Air, it's helped me through the trials of High school (6 years old) but, the charger is rubbish, please please redesign this produc I absolutely love my MacBook Air, it's helped me through the trials of High school (6 years old) but, the charger is rubbish, please please redesign this product as the cable breaks merely too easily, precisely at the beginning and end of the thin side to the wire, the cable has broken on both sides during one week. My cord stays nicely wrapped up all day every day; I don't throw it around or carry it to work with me. Make it thicker or a different material or something, because they are simply not lasting!
