    Power Adapter for 15" MacBook Pro

    • Written by Steve C from Anthem

    I am giving this product 5 stars. It is the first power supply I have owned for a laptop that does not have the cord attached. All of my other cords disintegrate around the area connected to the adapter. This adapter allows you to store the cord separately keeping the weight of the unit off the cord. I am very impressed with the quality of the adapter. The cord coils nicely in a circle around the adapter and fits right in the bag. Great product. Great price.

    Selling the power adapter and the cable separately is the best feature!

    • Written by Art G from Pebble Beach

    In olden times, when the connection of the cable to the battery went south, we had to replace the whole thing.

    Now if the cable goes bad, you just pay a few bucks to replace that. And you can use any USB-C cable you want.

    So happy to see this!

    Works like a charm but you can't please everyone

    • Written by Doug F from Tulsa

    This power brick is beautiful, unlike most utilitarian devices, and works beautifully, too. It doesn't get as hot as the old 85W MacBook chargers and is compatible with Apple's old power supply extension cord, so you don't have to worry about blocking other outlets if you don't want to. For ages, people have complained about the cords being integral with the brick and susceptible to fraying, making for what's effectively a really expensive replacement cable. No longer! You can use any USB C cable capable of handling sufficient juice and you can charge a variety of devices with the same brick - if you want to. If and when the cable(s) fray, you can get a replacement for far less than buying a whole new brick with integrated cables for $79 and that's only necessary if it's been longer than a year and Apple won't warranty exchange it.

    As in the past, the electronics inside have been shown to be high quality with thoughtful engineering behind them. If there's such a thing as a charger that matches this one's quality, design and output as well as the warranty, I'd like to see it.

    Just buy it and love it.

    • Written by Jeffrey P from Erie

    I have a new iphone x and a new ipad pro 10.5 mpf22LL/A. It allows the fast charging with the usb c to lightening cable. Yes this is a work around and it took me a few stops at different best buy stores to get the right stuff, but finally, I did. It appears to be charging my ipad way faster than with the smaller charger that comes with the ipad. I will keep this handy at work. In the past 16 minutes, my ipad pro went from 7% to 26%.

    Of course it's bulky, heavy, and expensive -- it's 87 watts!

    • Written by Frederick M from Alexandria

    This adapter produces 20.2V at 4.3A, so of course it's bulky, heavy, and expensive compared to single voltage, low current adapters. If you think you can design a regulated USB-C adapter the produces 20.2V at 4.3A, 9V at 3A, and 5V at 2.4A, accepts 100-240VAC at 50-60HZ inputs, meets regulatory standards all over the world, is UL approved, and make it small, light, and inexpensive, then you aren't and electrical engineer. I am an electrical engineer and I am quite impressed by this unit, as I have been with prior Apple power supplies. After seeing the horrible knock-offs and counterfeit Apple power adapter from China, I understand why Apple's genuine articles cost a lot more.

    People griped that the old MagSafe adapters had integrated cords that required that the entire unit be replaced in case of cord damage. Now this one has a detachable line cord and people complain that it's separate. They complain that "there are no fold out clips to wrap the cable around the adapter." After seeing the way that people wrapped the cords around the clips, as tight as banjo strings with the cord almost being pulled out of the adapter by the force, eventually leading to failure in thousands of cases, it's no wonder Apple removed them. People who do things like that are why we can't have nice things.

    Another reviewer wrote "It wears out on both ends and now I have one of the ends showing electrical WIRE and it's starting to SPARK?!" I've had three iPads, two MacBooks, at least a half dozen iPods, and three iPhones. I've never damaged any cord on any of them - because I take care of my stuff. People need to recognize that a small diameter, very flexible power/data cable is not something that can be treated like a string from a Weed Wacker. If your cord is frayed, it's your fault, not Apple's. If you refuse to take care of your stuff, then buy Dell. They have power cords that are about as big around as a horse's leg.

    TOO MANY SARCASTIC COMMENTS.....

    • Written by Dale T from Vieginia Beach

    This is an excellent product. If you want, fall way back to the Windows OS. Stop yer cryin' about bending this, breaking that, no supplied this, etc., etc.. Take CARE of your belongings. Slow down. Take the time (only an extra second or two),out of your day, to protect the products that make your life easier. So many sarcastic comments about things YOU can do to eliminate the very problems YOU CREATE by being in to great a hurry or just not caring for your things. Go cry to your dog, cat, a brick, or something besides this comment section. Nobody cares if you won't take the very tiny amount of time to care for your STUFF.

    Excellent adapter!

    • Written by Lee N from Dallas

    While it might not be MagSafe that actually comes with a giant benefit. With MagSafe if your cable started to fray at the connector end you were stuck needing to buy a new adapter. Now with USB C if the cable goes bad you can just buy a new cable. That's a wonderful idea and I think in the long run this will save people a lot of money.

    Safe clean design.

    • Written by Thorbjørn K from København Ø

    This is the charger of the future, what what it does, which is provide the MacBook with an incredible 87W of USB-C power, it's an incredible piece of engineering.

    What most people fail to take into account is the fact that this is engineering at it's finest, a clean box that doesn't overheat while still providing maximum oomph to your sleek MacBook Pro (or any other device needing angry pixies)

    With USB-C I can charge any USB-C device, so I can use the same charger, with the same USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 cable to charge my fancy BeoPlay A1 speaker, and because B&o engineered this to comply with the new USB-C standards, the little speaker will actually make great use of all 89W of angry pixies.

    My only gripe is that this isn't a 100W charger, because that is the maximum USB-C allows, but that would mean an even bigger charger.

    I bought the Power Adapter Extension Cable because I like to be able to work with my computer anywhere, and sometimes even charging it, but this might be excessive, but I appreciate that the charger doesn't come with this extension cable like previous chargers or computers did, because most people don't need this, so it's a bit of a waste honestly.
