    Disappointing.

    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...

    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.

    Broke in less than a year

    I was hesitant to own a Macbook because I don't think any Apple product is worth the prices they get away with charging. I ended up getting one as a birthday gift last October from my parents (who are not in any way tech savvy and think chain restaurants equate to a nice night out) after they INSISTED that I have one. They swear by purchasing only Apple, even though they can't give me a straight answer as to why. Anyways, I've been iffy on it and the charger just broke out of nowhere. The cord isn't even twisted or bent at all. It's been 7 months. Why do people pay so much for this stuff?

    Nah B

    if the rubber piece that connects the actual charger piece to the battery splices, and the rubber insulator comes out, you can stick a toothpick in it and push the metal spiral into the battery and it will work...

    Down side is you could start an electrical fire, but thats way cheaper than 78 bucks for a charger.

    Stock price goes up quality goes down...

    This product is just...bad.The whole package. Mine actually started to smoke. In the beginning there was just a little tear on the base of the cable. I noticed that it was getting way to hot at that specific point. After maybe 10 charges the tear had become a lot bigger due to the heat. And today suddenly i noticed a smell like something was burning...Yeap it was the charger,it was smoking like some 30$ chinese one. One month earlier my macbook decided not to boot, went to the tech guy no hd problems he said. The verdict? They do that some times. Not worth 1300 euros at all.

    Frays

    In a year of usage it frayed at the end where it plugs into the laptop since there is no strain relief.

    Worst laptop charger ever made. Extremely fragile.

    I've gone through 6 of these. They will either break at the base of the brick or at the tip where it plugs to the macbook. I've tried everything from wrapping a ballpoint pen spring around the tip, wrapped the wire around the hooks on the brick. NOTHING WORKs. Poor design. Laptop PC chargers are far more sturdier. If you're going to make something this cheap, don't charge an arm and a leg to replace it. I'm glad there are aftermarket parts to these cheap chargers. Seriously, rethink your design.

    Have had 2 of 3 stop working

    I've had 2 of the 3 adapters I've purchased randomly stop working. My original quit a year ago and I purchased two more. One of those has now died. I compared it to the one that's working--they look exactly the same still, so I can't tell why one would work and one wouldn't.

    Power Cord Poor Quality

    Bought the power cord last year to replace the one that came in with the computer originally. Now, buying a new one to replace the one that I bought last year. The plastic cover and wires break and crack easily especially where you connect it to the connection.

    I agree is bad design, but read this!

    My adapter started acting up and would only charge in certain position until there was no more positions that would make it work!
    I figured out that the little slide-on fold-on connector would rock up and down about 1/4 of and inch loosely when testing by hand and my other ipad and mac charger would not!
    So i took the little adapter from my old ipad charger and replaced with the defective not working mac charger and ...... voila!!! I works!
    Stupid adapter gets loose after time, thats it, not the charger itself but just the little slide-on folde-on little connector!
    I hope that helps, it helped me and i'm happy that i don't have to buy another one!

    This is a horrible product and replacements are worse

    I would give this NO STARS if I could. I'm not one to write reviews, but I had to replace this product at least 4 times in the past 2 years so I just had to write one up. My first charger worked for about 2 years until I needed a replacement. Since then, I bought a new charger (which only lasted 3 months) and had 2 chargers replaced (each only lasting for about 2-3 months). Every single time, the wiring inside the cables seems to fray from the inside (with no external damage) and loses its charge; the chargers even send out a spark sometimes through the rubber (which is a major safety hazard). I am thoroughly disappointed by this product and am considering to switch to a PC just because of the frustration this product has caused. It is expensive, of very poor quality, and a waste of my time to constantly replace/buy new ones.

    Lasted me 6 years

    I bought my MacBook Pro in early 2011 and it lasted me 6 years. I bought one off amazon last spring and now its not working. I agree, $80 is RIDICULOUS but will purchase it because the original charger from Apple lasted me a long time. I hope the next one lasts me just as long.

    Broke .... AGAIN!

    This is the 3rd time I have to purchase a new adapter for my MacBook pro. The computer itself has lasted very well, alas, not the cord. If they need to be replaced so easily, they should be a lot less expensive.

    Very Flimsy Charger Cord -- the ONLY downside (in my opinion) for Apple/Mac

    I'm very disappointed in these MacBook Pro charger cords. I got my 13 inch MacBook Pro in December 2013, and since then I have been through dozens of chargers, needing to replace them every few (2-4) months. In the beginning, when I had the warranty and then Applecare, it wasn't such a big deal because Apple replaced them for free each time. But in December 2016, my AppleCare warranty expired and since then I've gone through another half-dozen or more chargers and its not even like I put them through a lot of abuse or anything. I'm disabled and mostly homebound so the charger is usually stationary. Yet it keeps fraying within a short time.

    I don't get why Apple cannot make a quality charger -- especially as their products are otherwise pretty much PERFECT, in my opinion!

    Lousy product

    My 60W MagSafe Power Adapter {for MacBook &13 inch MacBook pro} broke after my extended warranty just expired. The wire broke and I cannot charge the battery. $80 is too expensive - from other reviews this is an ongoing problem. Your product is lousy and you need to manufacture better quality product for an expensive computer such as yours. My HP never had this problem ever. Apple company never knowledge their mistakes or deficiency. Shame on you Apple.

    They don't last long

    I have lost count of the number of MagSafe chargers I have had to replace over the years. They are overpriced and likely to go wrong after a year or so. I would expect much better, considering that my Macbooks are supposed to be "pro" models. Unfortunately there is no real alternative if one wants to power a Macbook. Cheap "no-name" power supplies are too much of a risk.

    Garbage

    I have changed for 2 years, 4 power adapters! I found it very unprofessional for such a giant company as Apple selling chargers which are without any quality!? Apple should compensate the Apple MacBook owners for waisting their time and money!!!

    Laptop outlasts the Charger instead of the other way round

    Had 2 Laptops for Daughter and Son. Replaced both. Cord failed on one and the charger on the other. Junk.

    Apple 60W MagSafe Power Cord

    For the price of this power adapter, Apple should make a better adapter for that price. I have went through four of them already and now looking for the fifth.
