    Charger was great

    My MacBook Air charger lasted me almost five years. I got the Mac in 2013 and it just broke today, in September of 2017. I didn't exactly treat it as well as I should have and I'm surprised that it lasted as long as it did.

    This unit meet with my expectation. I also love that it's made by Apple, not some weird brands. Highly recommended

    GREAT

    I received this charger when i first purchased my MacBook Air in spring 2015. YES I'am using the original charger still but I'am buying an extra one, for a lighter work bag. I believe this charger is better than the MacBook Pro chargers which are the WORST !. This charger is great , I would know. Im rough with my chargers as i go through multiple iPhone 7s charger yearly.

    Works Well

    I love the MagSafe feature. I've had Macbooks with this style of cable (MagSafe and MagSafe 2) for going on 6 years. I'm still using the original cable with no signs of needing to purchase a new one. It is purely a matter of how the cable is coiled for transport. Cables love curves, not bends. I coil the thick power cable in a circle (loosely) around the square transformer block. In the beginning I make sure to twist the cable with my fingers to that it 'lays' naturally in a circle. After doing this a couple of times, the cable gets a 'memory' of being in that circle. I then coil the small/thin cable the same way on other side of the block, so the two circles of cables 'sandwich' the transformer block. The whole set of cables is compact, easy to carry AND they LAST! It takes a couple of minutes the first couple of times, but after that I can coil up a MacBook cable in under 60secs.

    I also manage a company with about 20 users. I see LOTS of 'other' ways of storing the cable. Mash them together in a bag, pull/wind the cable around the block perpendicularly, bend coil the cable 'bowtie' style with a wire tie. ALL of these ways lead to problems. I see cables come back on occasion with obvious tension breaks in the cable and connector junctions.

    Many users have good intentions, but very few circle coil the cables. I know that 'most' will prefer to not have to do that and want the cable to withstand any/most treatment, but I would think that would result in bigger, bulkier cables. I remember what the Dell cables were like and they did not fair 'any' better, in fact they came back much more often, usually due not being 'MagSafe'. That physical 'plug-in' connection gets a lot of strain.

    Anyway, I just wanted to provide another opinion based on my real world experience.

    4 years - Same charger!

    I write this review only to contrast the others. I've had my Macbook Air for 4 years soon. Its been charged everyday, used for many hours everyday. Transported almost everyday. And my battery and charger has been working all this time.

    I'm not careful, but not overly reckless either. I just stuff things down in the bag and go.

    This charger is NOT bad quality. It is good quality. That is to be expected for the price but the people on here saying that its bad must be chewing on the cord or something. Mine is just now beginning to break a little in the cord. After constant use and abuse from 3++ years? Thats good quality!

    Excellent!

    I have had this charger for four years and it has worked amazingly throughout. At this point there is slight tearing in the chord but It still works perfectly!

    What's everyone's problem??

    I don't understand why everyone has a problem. If it's the adapter then maybe you guys are doing something wrong. As far as the CHARGER itself, which is what is SUPPOSED to be getting reviewed, there should be no problem there, either. Unless the user is doing something wrong. I have mine plugged in under my couch and it got caught in the reclining mechanism, therefore splintering the cord. That's MY fault. Just going to go down and get a new one. NO big deal.
