Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display)

Get help buying. or call 1-800-MY-APPLE.
  • Overview

    The 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro 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 cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.

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

    Compatible with MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display.

      rubber on the cord rips open

      I've had this macbook charger for almost 2.5 years and the rubber on the cord started ripping open in just one year. It's truly disappointing as my old magsafe I've had this macbook charger for almost 2.5 years and the rubber on the cord started ripping open in just one year. It's truly disappointing as my old magsafe charger from 2010 is still functional and hasn't ripped open. The quality of the charger declined so far where your older models are outliving the newer ones by almost 5 years is completely outrageous. I've taped up the opening with electrical tape since it's expensive to replace. Obviously these things are made to fall apart so people will have to keep buying it over and over. It's these little petty things that keeps me from wanting to support apple products other than the macbook pro.

      Wish I could rate it 0 stars..

      My MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display (Late 2013) came with this Magsafe 2 power adaptor. Not long after use, it started yellowing, which was no big deal. My MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display (Late 2013) came with this Magsafe 2 power adaptor. Not long after use, it started yellowing, which was no big deal. Then it started fraying at the end that connects to my MacBook, as well as throughout the cable. It is extremely unreliable, and I have to keep checking to see if it is still charging! If a replacement power adaptor cost around $30-$50, it would not be as big of a deal. But, $80! What the heck, Apple! I spend $2000 on a laptop, and then $80 for each power adaptor??

      On 3rd Charger

      I am a die-hard Apple junkie, but this charger is terrible. I'm on my third year of ownership of my MacBook Pro with Retina and also on my third charger.

      Disappointing

      I've had my 13 in. Macbook pro with Retina display for less than two full years, and I've already gone through 2 chargers. I am incredibly careful with them. As I've had my 13 in. Macbook pro with Retina display for less than two full years, and I've already gone through 2 chargers. I am incredibly careful with them. As a broke college student in finals, the last thing I need is to keep spending 80$ on chargers that have no longevity. Super disappointed in Apple, I know they're capable of fixing these chargers yet have completely neglected to do so.

      Love Apple products, Hate their charging cables

      Along with everyone else, I will say that these cables fray within a year to two years. Mine started after 18 months and I am very careful with it. They are Along with everyone else, I will say that these cables fray within a year to two years. Mine started after 18 months and I am very careful with it. They are too expensive to be an item that needs to be replaced on an ongoing basis. Writing this review so that hopefully Apple will come up with something better.
