      Frustrating - sometimes my laptop isn't being charged while plugged in.

      What really frustrates me about this power adaptor is that i regularly find my MacBook Pro not charging despite the fact it's plugged in. When compared to th What really frustrates me about this power adaptor is that i regularly find my MacBook Pro not charging despite the fact it's plugged in. When compared to the old magsafe adaptors this is a huge step backwards. Essentially there are 2 issues with the new design. 1) unless the usb-c connection is properly seated in it's slot power doesn't get to the laptop. Furthermore when working with the laptop on my knee - e.g. while travelling the connector can become slightly dislodged, meaning that charing stops. 2) unlike the old power adapter the usb-c cable can be disconnected at the "power brick" end as well as the laptop end, giving 2 possible points of failure. By contrast. look at a lightning connector as an good example of a connector that doesn't have this problem. A lightning connector has indentations at each side so that the connector can gripped by an iPhone. By contrast a USB-C connector has smooth sides and no notch that can be used by the laptop to hold onto the cable and stop it sliding out accidentally. I appreciate there may be reasons why apple moved away from magsafe, in principle I don't mid that the new adapter isn't magsafe, but I do mind that I'm not always getting a full charge when available while travelling on business, leading to a loss of productivity and loss of earnings because of a poorly designed power connector.

      So Useless and Frustrating Charger

      The charger just decides not to work and no matter what you do in terms of repositioning the charger or Swapping the cable etc will resolve the issue. I think The charger just decides not to work and no matter what you do in terms of repositioning the charger or Swapping the cable etc will resolve the issue. I think Apple must have a second look and replace this charger. This is making life difficult for some of us. I thought it was the initial charger and bought another one but the problem persist. Do something Apple!!!!!!
