    The adapter stinks

    • Written by Michelle T from Bay Shore

    I've had to doctor this second adapter after a few months, I can't doctor it up any more. At $80 a pop they should let forever.

    60W Magsafe Power Adapter is junk

    • Written by Bill D from Pipersville

    I'm not ordering my 3rd or 4th adapter. The adapter isn't abused and the computer isn't used for travel or transported very often. For $80 the adapter shouldn't require an annual, or more frequent, replacement.

    It's good enough

    • Written by Zubaoyi Y from Champaign

    I got my laptop in summer 2012 and the charger that came with lasted me until late 2015. I was a bit reluctant to get a new one from apple that cost $80 so I went with off brand stuff on amazon. I went through 2 or 3 of them (about $20-30 per) and each lasted me maybe 3 months. I did my math then and took another chance with the apple charger early 2016. It still works fine even though at one specific place the cable's wearing pretty thin. So I'm going to order another one soon just in case. But yeah, it seems that the apple charger can be pretty consistently depended on for 3 years, which is not bad at all considering my other options.

    We've landed on mars. Apple can't make a power supply that lasts more than a year with minimal movement. I've had 2 blow up on me and I'm now having to buy I think my 5th because the magnet keeps dislodging from the cord and sticking in the computer. I've glued them, wrapped them with heat shrink, crimped them back in, but all in all it is just a terrible design. I usually have my MacBook sitting on the table at work and it doesn't get touched until I leave for the day and I always wrap the cord back on itself. The only time it gets any sort of rigorous use is if I'm sitting on the couch using it which is rare since my iMac is only 1 room away and way better to use for photo editing. If you are going to use these there should be an extra disconnect so instead of having to buy the entire power brick I could easily replace the cable that attaches into it much like the other side of the extender cord. Then again, how would you get your $80 a year I suppose.

    Trash 60W Power Adapters

    • Written by Alex S from Colorado Springs

    Apple loves to just spurt out products without reading reviews and how they perform, this company's altogether gone to in the garbage. If this useless company spent just a few days a week to pay attention to customer service they might learn something. Tired of constantly buying adapters so I'm switching to PC.

    Horrible quality

    • Written by Rodolfo L from Irvine

    Mac computers are good and you already pay a big amount for them. However, paying an additional $79 for faulty chargers seems like a total scam. I have bought four chargers in 5 and a half years, and I have never heard of people going through expensive charger issues such as Apple users. It's outrageous...Apple has managed to close contracts with the government, produce sophisticated encryptions, among other achievements, and yet they have not been able to create quality chargers. Also, faulty chargers are such a double standard for a company that claims to support sustainability.

    Poor design that does not deserve the Apple logo

    • Written by Juan C F from Quito

    I have a very bad experience with power adapters for my Mac Pro, they're pretty bad The first one got the cable broken near the power adapter's base, the second one became very hot and one day stop working. Actually the last one just lasted 8 months. It is incredible that the company that brights for awesome designs has this piece of trash for serving one of its best laptops.
    Or it is the real Apple business? Have this faulty device to sell it again and again. This is very disappointing. Looks like a modern mafia trick. C'mon boys try a new design, something like iPad one should be a better solution.

    Needs a firm and sturdy wire

    • Written by Tyonna B from Wilmington

    The thin wire that leads to the laptop, as opposed to the thicker wire that leads to the outlet, is easier to break because it is thin.

    Joining the disgruntled chorus

    • Written by Michelle M from Gainesville

    This will be my third power adapter for my MacBook Pro purchased in 2013 purchase. I love my laptop but hate shelling out $79.00 x 3 because the cover of the cord begins fraying near the magnetic plug. I take good care of my laptop, and the adapter, too, is handled with care. (FYI: The same fraying of the cable cover occurs with the apple lightning cords for my iphones.) I give this product two stars because, unlike non-Apple replacements, this adaptor won't fry my computer or burn down my house. That is the only reason I continue to purchase the Apple brand. Excellent laptop; poor adapter!

    Expensive and doesn't last

    • Written by Angela D from Fairfield

    I'm a diehard Apple fan but not when it comes to these cords. I'm about to order my 4th - 4th! - cord for my Macbook pro. The outer sheath keeps splitting and exposing the wire. Electrical tape only keeps it at bay for a very short time because it will split below wherever it is taped. This is not a good product.

    Worst Charger

    • Written by Megan J L F from McLean

    I have gone through about three of these this year alone. They just keep breaking. The cord gets exposed and I even have put electrical tape on it to slow down the wear and tear and they still keep breaking. I have a nice little Apple Charger graveyard in my house now. Worst design product. Off to buy another one because my latest one just broke.

    Very expensive and extremely poor quality

    • Written by Azra A from Brossard

    I have had to purchase two additional chargers for my MacBook Pro because both of them simply stopped working one day. Buying a new one is expensive and these chargers don’t last long at all.

    Offensively disgraceful price tag. Moderate quality build

    • Written by Matthew F from Aurora

    I’m not expecting a tank when it comes to a power adapter but this thing is one of those stand alone items that makes Apple look bad. Moderate quality build at best and with a price that is offensively high to the consumer for something so incredibly prone to failure.

    I just bought my third for my laptop. They fail at an amazing rate. This is the worst product Apple produces. For a company that prides itself on design, it is unbelievable that it would continue to sell these. They are trash.

    I've had to purchase two separate mac chargers since I bought my computer. Both broke within one to two years. My first cord just stopped working for no apparent reason. The second one frayed. You would think that given the previous lawsuit Apple would have improved the quality of their chargers however that doesn't seem to be the case. It costs me just as much to buy a new charger as it does to replace the piece that keeps breaking. I've resorted to purchasing off-brand chargers which seem to last just as long as the $80 apple charger for half the price.

    Barely lasted two years...

    • Written by Amanda F from Baltimore

    My original Macbook charger made it 7 years, bought one of these 2 years ago and here I am back having to buy another one because the cord unraveled and stopped charging. Hate that this is the only trusted game in town to keep my mac charged.
