      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.

      As if all the dongles weren't enough

      Not including a simple 2 meter USB C cable with an $80 charger is beyond stupid. It's almost as if they have contempt for their own customers.

      What is this?

      Why is this thing so dumb? -The heaviest part is stuck to the outlet. Most outlets don't have the strength to hold this silly thing in place. -The largest par Why is this thing so dumb? -The heaviest part is stuck to the outlet. Most outlets don't have the strength to hold this silly thing in place. -The largest part plugs into the outlet. Generally, it would be nice if I could not upset people off by taking up 2 outlet spaces. This is not good for Apple's image, it can be easily fixed, and it isn't progressive/ innovative. Change it.

      These don't work.! They don't charge my 2018 MBP.

      I have made sure to test these with 100 w rated usb c cables and I have tried 4 usb c charge cables from Apple but it won't charge. I bought 2 87 w chargers als I have made sure to test these with 100 w rated usb c cables and I have tried 4 usb c charge cables from Apple but it won't charge. I bought 2 87 w chargers also. Neither work. My 61 w adapter works fine. For this much money, this is a joke! This is the most negative review I've done.
