    Dont know what you guys do....

    6 years of use, and no issues. My wife has had one for almost 4 years... again, no issues. People must not be using their brains and are either bending the cords or maybe they need to plug into a power conditioner. I know tons of people with MacBooks and NONE of them have this issue. It's like anything else, they aren't indestructible. I have had so many other issues with non-Mac laptops, and you really just can't compare the products!

    Great Product

    I've been reading the reviews and i dont understand how everyones chargers are always breaking. I've had my charger for almost 4 years now and its still in perfect condition. As long as you take care of your electronics you should have no problems with this product. Im very satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it.

    breaking cord

    It hasn't broken yet, but I'm impressed with how well this cord has stood up. I have had my macbook pro for three years and this is still the original power cord! I hope my next one stands up better than others. I really love the design and last year i was pleasantly surprised to find that i was able to cram the adapter into the weird plugs at my schools library. Very good for traveling to and from the library and classes.

    What's with the hate?

    I bought my macbook pro in July and have had no problems at all. I love the MagSafe feature, it has saved my computer on countless number of occasions!

    New & Improved

    The new MagSafe power adapter is awesome. The design gets the cord and connector out of the way and to date, eliminates the loose connection problems. The thumbs up!

    Don't understand the bad reviews

    I have an old power adapter from my last laptop that has been working for over 7 years. What do people do to their adapters? It's an electronic device, you can't bang it around and expect it's not going to break. Needless to say, I've been using my new one for over 2 years now with no issues and I have one at all three places I use my laptop most, so I don't have the added weight in my laptop bag...unless I'm going on a trip. I've had no issue with any I've every purchased.

    I HIGHLY RECCOMED THIS PRODUCT

    I have went through 3 chargers breaking on me with the old charger for the Macbook Pro. In desperation I went looking for ANOTHER charger because of the third charger breaking.
    I came upon this charger and was really excited to see how much they have improved their product. This charger feels very different from the old one and it is well worth the extra $20 to $30 difference.
    The charger is sleek and very sturdy. The peice that connects to the computer is made VERY VERY well and when plugged into the computer stays in place when bumped and fits nicely to the side of the computer unlike the old charger that stuck straight out.
    If your iffy about buying this product ... DONT BE ... I garuntee you will LOVE THIS CHARGER.

    Why the complaints?

    I've had my old power apapter since I've had the old MacBook (late 2008) and have not had a problem. The one I bought two years ago is now frayed, but this can be expected for a power-user. I see people complaining about apple this and apple that. Here's a tip. Don't put your adapter under a lot of strain. To complain about the fraying is ridiculous. It is a wire. All wires are susceptible to damage. Ever notice that your refrigerator's power cable points down? Yeah. That's to prevent damage by eliminating strain. Per gaps you should try that. Laptops are not made to sit in your lap, although the name says so. You must remember that it is a powerful computer that does a lot of work. The processor gets hot. If you don't allow it to ventilate, it's gonna mess up. That is basic electronic information.

    Has lasted 7 YEARS and COUNTING!

    I bought my macbook pro in 2008 and have used it A LOT going through medical school and beyond. I have the ORIGINAL charger from 2008 and it is still in great shape with no tears (just looks dirty now). I take it everywhere- coffee shops, libraries, everywhere I have studied and even drag it along the floor moving from one couch to another, and it is still in great shape! Which makes me think:

    WHAT ARE PEOPLE DOING TO THEIR CHARGERS to make them break in 2 months (previous reviews) when mine has lasted 7 brutal years and counting!?!!

    Im finally upgrading to the new 12 macbook but will be giving my current mac and CHARGER to my nephew for continued use.

    Excellent Product!

    I really love the design of the MagSafe Power Adapter, and they have never failed me. The power adapter has no issues so far as I can see, only one being that it could be longer. Overall, the adapter is a great product, and I have never had a problem with it. *Note: I am a Mac user of over 5 years, and I have only had to replace the adapter once, when my pet rabbit chewed the wire. I have never had to replace the second one.

    Great if you aren't completely stupid

    This is a great Power Adapter. It is better than the old design as said by many in the reviews. For those who are considering buying one, don't pay attention to the idiots that can't take care of their equipment. I have had mine for quite a while now with no problems. The people who complain of fraying are simply careless.

    Great Product

    I have had my aluminum Macbook since the late 2008 when it first came out. My original charger lasted me up until last week when it finally died after 5 years!I never had a problem with that charger and took really god care of it. I bought a new charger since my old one finally gave up on me due to the wear and tear around the "T" shaped area which connected to the computer. The new one has connected well and has been doing its job. People need to understand that Apple is a company meant for people of high class, aka for rich people. So if you're someone who has an issue buying a charger at $80, then maybe you should consider not purchasing an Apple product.

    Works like it should

    The power adapter has worked fine for me, I've had the power adapter for 3 years and I'm always carrying it around. I've never felt that i need to replace it because its built pretty well.

    Let's Compare...

    Alright, so it sounds like these have a tendency to stop working after awhile. Mine still works great, and I love it, but I've only had it for about a month. But if you've ever shopped for a replacement power adapter for a PC laptop, you know that they are just as expensive. And the problem with them is that, in my experience, they break EASIER! Because it's not the magnetic connection, every time someone trips over the cord, it not only brings the charger close to its demise, but also brings the connection to the motherboard closer to ITS demise. And once that happens, it's new laptop time.

    It's very difficult to produce a bullet-proof charger, because they definitely get the most abuse out of any part of the macbooks, or any laptop in general. Just realize that ALL laptop users are in the same boat, and really Apple still has higher quality. The magsafe connector is something I wish was on EVERY laptop, patents or not, because they're just THAT MUCH BETTER.

    Oh, and to the few who complain because the wall charger is bulky, just switch to the 3-prong extension, and you have yourself a classic laptop charger with the adapter in the middle of the cord. And if you still want to complain, go buy a desktop, because again, every laptop user fights that same thing.

    Sorry if this post seems a little troll-y. Didn't mean to come off that way, it just seems that many of these reviewers are a bit....ignorant?

    Still works after 6 years of use

    I still have the original Magsafe Power Adapter from when I bought my mid-2010 13" MacBook new about 6 years ago. Yes, there have been a few problems, occasionally with it, but I was able to solve that with a quick tech support call to apple care. Other than that, it has never failed me, even after years of traveling with my MacBook and taking it back and forth to college. About a year ago, the wire casing (covering the wires) right under the part that plugs into the computer broke, due to my own negligence, I think. To my surprise, even with exposed wires, the Magsafe power adapter is still working perfectly. I have since wrapped it in electric tape and continued using it, I have now decided to replace it, only because I have gotten tired of having to rewrap the cord in electrical tape and because a few of the exposed wires are bent, which makes me think that it has gotten somewhat unsafe to use now. But, the cord and wires have NEVER gotten hot or even warm and my laptop gets used daily.

    I've had them for years with no issues

    I'm writing this because of all the negative reviews. I've had my computer for a little over 4 years and no problems with the computer or adapter. I had the same adapter for my 2008 MacBook and the only reason it's not working now is my then puppy got to it when I wasn't looking (and even considering he bit down to the wire, it still worked most of the time for months). I'm always careful with my electronics (puppy notwithstanding) but I don't think you should have a problem with this item if you're reasonably careful.

    Fabulous Charger

    I haven't had any issues with my MacBook Pro charger and I am a busy college student who takes it around and uses it nearly everyday. I am impressed with Apple's designs and I am super happy with how my laptop runs. This cord is easy to use. It has an extension cable or a smaller plug in to save space in my backpack... None of my old PCs had any features like these in the charger cables. Plus I love the LED indicator to let me know if it is 100% charged yet so I don't have to open up the laptop and check when it has been charging. Good work on this design, Apple!
