      I thought I just had a duff one, but it looks like I am not alone

      I've been using one of these adapters for a couple of months on my macbook pro with a suitable wattage power supply, but now find that it has become unreliable. I've been using one of these adapters for a couple of months on my macbook pro with a suitable wattage power supply, but now find that it has become unreliable. If I borrow a colleagues then it works fine, but switching back to mine results in pot luck as to whether it will decide to charge. The laptop detects it and switches to 'Power Adapter' mode, but doesn't actually charge up. I came to purchase a replacement, but having read the other reviews I will be investing in a new power supply instead.

      Becomes faulty

      Worked fine initially but started to lose connection and has now become totally unreliable. The light stays green indicating a full charge,when it's not, and i Worked fine initially but started to lose connection and has now become totally unreliable. The light stays green indicating a full charge,when it's not, and it won't charge. I can only assume the little pins aren't making contact. I've tried to clean it but it's made no difference.

      AVOID THIS JUNK, really disappointed.

      I can not believe this, I used this with my TB Display 27 to power my Macbook pro Retina 15, it worked for a year, not moved from the desk top, now suddenly th I can not believe this, I used this with my TB Display 27 to power my Macbook pro Retina 15, it worked for a year, not moved from the desk top, now suddenly the light is off and its not charging, if I wiggle it the battery icon changes to power icon, but the battery percentage doesn't change, the light is off completely. Now I am recharging with original cable. very poor quality.

      Very disappointing accessory

      I purchased a MacBook Pro 13" and a Thunderbolt display in November 2014. There was no option but to use the MagSafe to MagSafe 2 converter (which was included I purchased a MacBook Pro 13" and a Thunderbolt display in November 2014. There was no option but to use the MagSafe to MagSafe 2 converter (which was included in the package). While I am very pleased with the performance of the computer an the display, the connector is a thoroughly unsatisfactory and not worthy of Apple, especially because it is the only means of connecting two pieces of equipment costing more that £2000. It rarely connects immediately and more often than not I have to spend time making adjustments to the connector before the light comes on. Even then, I cannot rely on the connection being sustained; many a time, I've left my MacBook Pro on charge, only to discover several hours later that it hasn't charged. I purchased a second adaptor, but it is no better. The assistants at the Apple Store are unable to help and simply tell me that I am not the only one who has the difficulty.

Sometimes it works straightaway and other times my coffee has gone cold by the time I get it to connect. No charging light = no charging (although I think the display works ... I am not prepared to try this out again right now). However, I see no other solution to using the display with a newer MacBook Pro. Hence one star for a dodgy piece of equipment to allow two expensive other pieces of equipment to work together.
