      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.
