      Worst Charger Ever

      I miss the magsafe and the plastic thing that had the old charger that allowed to keep the cable. Also you have to buy the charger and the cable separately!

      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 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).

      too big, too heavy

      This product is way too heavy and too big for a laptop. Having bought a Macbook Pro only for the 1 TB storage, not available for Macbook Air (which I loved), I This product is way too heavy and too big for a laptop. Having bought a Macbook Pro only for the 1 TB storage, not available for Macbook Air (which I loved), I was assured that the weight was virtually the same. But no one factored in the charger which is almost twice as heavy and as big as the one for Macbook Air. And I too, like so many other comments, miss the Magsafe, which not only protected the Macbook by its easy detachability but also lit up to show you whether it was charging (red) or fully charged (green). What was Apple thinking (and don't get me started on the dongles)

      I'm not sure if the other reviews are about this same product. But I find this power adapter no different than my previous MacPro adapters. No less convenient I'm not sure if the other reviews are about this same product. But I find this power adapter no different than my previous MacPro adapters. No less convenient in any way. And the earlier 110V power extension cords are forward compatible with this one. The charger works like any other... just fine. I understand that technology has moved forward to the USB type C adapter. It is more efficient and now carries both data and power in a single cable. I'm all for it. Formerly we had two cables to connect the laptop; power and data i.e. two separate cords. I've purchased a couple USB C to Lightning adapters to plug into my new cords and they have become quite flexible. They are cheap and they allow for plenty of flexibility. Consumers are carrying a greater share of the cost to do this, for sure. But, if a consumer wants top-of-the-line products... they'll have to pay for it. Or they can wait until bottom tier machines are available. I prefer to buy leading technology and don't expect to step into the best there is cheaply. A few new cords and cables are actually peanuts compared the price of a new MacPro anyway. So why all the noise?!
