      Poor design choices + nickel and diming = unhappy customer

      As a longtime Apple enthusiast, I tend to go easy on Apple when it comes to controversial design decisions. However, this is getting out of hand. 1) Apple dropp As a longtime Apple enthusiast, I tend to go easy on Apple when it comes to controversial design decisions. However, this is getting out of hand. 1) Apple dropped all cable management for this new adapter design. This time around, there are no fold out clips to wrap the cable around the adapter and there is no clip on the cable itself to facilitate wrapping it up. I have to use a black Velcro strap every time I'm done using it and want to securely stow it in my bag, which is exactly the opposite of the simple yet functional design aesthetic I thought Apple strived for. 2) There is no charging indicator / status light on the new AC Adapters. As a result, I have to log in to the laptop and check the battery meter to monitor progress. 3) There is no reasonable justification for charging $79 for an "extra" AC adapter AND forcing me to pay another $19 for the required charging cable that used to be included (and permanently affixed) to previous iterations of Apple AC adapters. That's right folks, for $79 you get only the power brick, the charging cable (seems like an obvious requirement) that runs between the brick and the laptop is NOT included! Once you throw that in, you're looking at almost $100 to keep a backup power cord in your laptop bag. Apple somehow managed to ruin every single aspect of what used to be an elegant design. Best of all, they charge more for the privilege of using it.

      Too bulky and too overpriced

      This thing works but it's really ridiculous that you need to spend 80 dollars on a power adapter that doesn't even include the charging cable. Also, since the L This thing works but it's really ridiculous that you need to spend 80 dollars on a power adapter that doesn't even include the charging cable. Also, since the LED indicator is gone as well there is no way to know if your laptop is charging unless you heard the sound it makes when you plug it in. Overall, its really not the best but its what you need to power your device.

      works but big and bulky

      whats the big point of sacrificing a few essential ports like the regular USB or ethernet or HDMI on the MacBook Pro to make it 100 grams less lighter if this b whats the big point of sacrificing a few essential ports like the regular USB or ethernet or HDMI on the MacBook Pro to make it 100 grams less lighter if this brick is going to weigh as much as a real brick. Really Apple, really!

      $79 ADAPTER DOES NOT INCLUDE CABLE!!!!

      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 sysadm 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

      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 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

      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???
