    Great connection, terrible durability. It's my third in 2 years.

    Why do you hate me?

    I find myself in the same predicament at least once a year. The L-shaped magsafe keeps unraveling, and at this point, I'm so frustrated. I do not "man handle" my tech products because I treat them like I would a baby. So I'm not quite sure why it continues to expose its wires to me and stop working. The charger that came with my MacBook Pro lasted about 2 years. I wasn't as upset when I replaced that one. But when you have to fork over $80 twice..it's ridiculous. I'm at the point where electrical tape will not save my current charger, and I'm going to have to invest in another $80 charger that will only last a few months. Functionality shouldn't come second behind aesthetics for the charger. Take a page out of most PC chargers, please.

    Same trouble

    I too, am adding my voice to those who have already expressed immense displeasure with the charger. I really am impressed with how long my macbook pro has lasted. I use a early 2010 model. Fantastic work on that, Apple. I have had to do very little in the way of keeping my actual computer going, besides constant issues related to charging. It is quite a pain in the rear to have to buy a new charger multiple times a year. And there are no good replacement charger options. I have started buying the $20 Chinese builds just so i don't break the bank. I like what one reviewer said about putting these chargers under warranty. It should not be the burden of the consumer to constantly buy new chargers for Apple's poor design in this regard.

    Come on...

    For $80, you'd expect the charger to be a true quality product. I'm on my third charger after just 3 years. After about a year, the casing breaks, and the charger has to be wrapped in electrical tape. I've never had this problem with any other computer/phone/ipod chargers. Had I known how awful your chargers are, I wouldn't have purchased a Macbook, which is a shame because this is a great computer. I do NOT recommend this laptop, only because of how awful the chargers are.

    Worst charger ever...

    I purchased my Macpro early 2012. In early 2013, the first charger got broken. I thought it was my fault for treating it badly. So I purchased the second charger, I treated and carried it like gold. Guess what, it decided to not working when I have my paper due in a few hours. I wish i could take pic and show you guys how horrible the charger is after nearly 3 years of usage. But I have no option other than buying this freaking charger again for my Mac.!!!

    Apple and their chargers.

    I love Apple products but their chargers are sub par. I figured out how to keep my iphone charger from fraying and that's by wrapping colorful string around it. I attempted this with my mac charger and it didn't work as well. I've had my macbook pro since 2011 and have bought two additional chargers. The one that originally came with the computer eventually frayed and started to make sizzling noises. So I bought another one and the same thing happened. I just received my new charger and I'm urgently looking for ways to preserve it now because who has time to buy a new $80 charger every two or so years. Apple is able to make such intelligent products but can't make a durable charger. Unreal.

    Love Apple but not their cables

    I've had a Macbook Pro since 2011 and I love it. Yet the charging cable that come with is a pain, because the coating is so fragile that it'll break within a year of usage. I'm on my 3rd cable and it is bringing me down that Apple is able to make so good products yet fail so immensely. The same goes with my chargers for my Iphones (4-7) and Ipad. Weirdly enough I haven't had the same problems with my Ipod charger cable. Please up your game Apple, although I suspect you for having it as part of a business strategy to make cables with a real limited lifetime.

    Best Regards

    Really Apple?

    I've had my macbook for two years (a week ago was two years). and within those two years I have had to purchase five replacements. The silicone casing always comes apart which leads to a charger that has to be covered in electrical tape no matter how well i take care of my charger and don't leave it lying around. For $80 a piece, Apple really needs to improve the quality.

    Poor design and very expensive

    I have changed my Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter 3 times now as the cable is far too fragile at the device end and always develops a fault despite very careful handling. Considering the high cost, and the fact that Apple prides itself on high quality, I am very disappointed that Apple has not addressed this issue.
    The Macbook is still going strong. Please can we have a solution to what is quite obviously a design fault?

    Bad quality

    Only at the beginning of the third year, I had to buy a new adapter!!! The skin of the cord ripped at one point. and it started getting hot, very hot, at the ripped point.

    Unable to engineer a durable charger!

    Apple you mix high quality computers with low quality chargers including the charger for our iPhones, iPad, and iPod. They all fray and they are very poor quality. I'm surprised that you can engineer durable long lasting computers, phones etc but you have been unable to master the engineering of a durable charger.
    Come on who are you kidding!!!!

    BAD! BAD! BAD!

    I'm with the majority of dissatisfied MacBook Pro users who have commented. This product badly needs to be redesigned. This will be my 3rd adaptor within 4 years. At $80 you figure it would at least last more than 1 or 2 years since here are no moving parts. I'm an IT professional and I take very good care of my computers and laptops. All of the adaptors have failed at the same place, where the magnetic cord that plugs into the laptop meets the power adaptor. The cord frays right at this junction point. Poor Design! Come on Apple...You can do better!

    I've had my laptop for maybe two and a half years, and the charger has been frayed and practically exposed for at least a year and a half of that time. Now it's broken completely, and I have to cough up over $80 just to face the same problem with the replacement, only quicker than with the original. That's a ridiculous price to pay for a product that can't last. I really question whether or not apple even bothers reading the reviews or even looking at their ratings.

    Horrible Power Adapter...Cheap!

    Horrible charger; it's crumbling apart and frayed. I feel like I'm going to be electrocuted. I am very disappointed. This is not a quality product you pride yourself on. Buyer beware.

    Mac Book Pro Charger Cord

    I bought my laptop in 2011 and I am about to have to purchase the 3rd charging cord, which is not expectable at $79.00 a cord. The design is poor. I love everything else about apple. This is a cord that needs to be thicker at the point of the adapter, so it doesn't start to expose wiring after such a short period. Many people are experiencing this issue.

    Apple needs to admit this is a terrible design

    I am not an Apple hater, quite the opposite in fact. I consider my Macbook laptop one of my children and I treat it with the utmost care. But I am in the process yet AGAIN of having to shell out $80-90 for a replacement power cable. I will go to the Apple store and show the cable to the geniuses who will (somehow) look at me as if they have never seen such a thing and tell me I am out of warranty and point to the shelf where I can buy a brand new one just waiting to break after 9-12 months.

    Apple please either redesign these adapters or admit there is a problem and offer full warranty replacements when it happens. I am not trying to rope a steer with my adapter, I don't take it mountain climbing or bungie jumping. I use my laptop at home and at work. I have consistently had to buy replacement power cords for at least the last 6-8 years (over 2 or 3 laptops). Apple you have billions of dollars in cash in reserve, can't you help out your loyal customers?

    I am on my third one!!!

    I am on my third one!! Come on give me a break. The cords are so cheap, they bend and tear so easily. Too expensive to keep replacing.
