    Unreliable

    This adapter worked fine for the first few months I had it, but then it would just stop working after being plugged in for a while and the amber/green light on the charger would not be illuminated. Now it is very difficult to get it to connect properly when first connecting it, I have to jiggle it every which way to get it to finally connect. I'm also regularly using a compressed air cleaner to clean it and the other connections to get it to properly work. I use my Macbook on a desk so it's not like it's moving around a lot or at all where it might disconnect, I'd hate to see how this works when using it on your lap. I'd prefer not to have to purchase an $80 MagSafe 2 charger when this should do the job and work with my several MagSafe 1 chargers.

    Reviews are true, BUT...

    I experienced the very same issues reported by many others; failing to work/charge after a few months. I tried a quick fix which was simply to first attach the adapter to my MacBook Pro Retina, THEN I would attach the cable directly to the adapter. Worked instantly with no issues. My hope is that this continues. Try it if you are struggling with yours!

    Doesn't work

    Allows my MBP to run without using up battery but does not charge battery until I disconnect / reconnect a few times.
