    60W magsafe

    Unfortunately I have had same experience as everyone else: new charger at an extortionate price given there is no alternative which then fails within 3 months of purchase. It worked fine for a couple of months then wouldn't charge the lap top , then started charging again but yesterday the magnetic head snapped off its casing making the cable totally useless. Ridiculous, disappointing and totally unacceptable that I have to buy yet another one in order to use my laptop. 1 star is way over generous.

    Absolutely useless

    I am disgusted at the price of this charger compared to the durability. I have had this charger for a grand total of two months and it has completely broken. For weeks the charger has been going off with the slightest bit of movement and now it is totally unresponsive. I am dumbfounded at the fact that these £80 chargers are our only options and they are lasting no more than two to three months. Classic Apple charging absurd prices for sub-standard products.

    Another failure

    Like many other reviewers - my second adapter is on the verge of failing and I am going to have to buy another - come on Apple you need to do something about this.

    Too expensive!!

    I had to buy a replacement charger due to my original chargers insulation splitting & exposing the cables. I was disgusted to learn of the price of a replacement charger. It is far too expensive but I have no choice but to buy one in order to continue using my laptop. It leaves me strongly doubting as to whether I would buy another Apple product in the future due to the excess expenses.

    The worst thing in Apple product line.

    Same story as all other users. I've bought replacements from Apple several times. Obviously this is a product quality issue, and Apple simply wants its customers to pay the bill for it. Giving one star is over generous.

    10th charger just broke

    So poorly designed, typical apple prioritizing form over function. Design them with strain relief at either end obviously! This is my tenth adapter, had some genuine from Apple shops, some probably fake one ones from ebay and they're all as bad as each other. The one star rating is generous.

    Apple and cables

    Apple has the worst cables I've ever seen. They don't end long and they always broke even if you really take care of it. Congrats Apple... not even able to make good cables.

    Cheap

    It literally took just few weeks to see the cable starting to deteriorate. Now, after few good months, the cable is split. RIP.

    Poor

    Such a shame everyone is having the same problem! Original charger lasted four years, finishing up with sparking and smoking and with both ends of the charger overheating. I decided to buy a cheaper version from Amazon to replace it, and this has just expired in the same way. I was preparing to fork over £60 for a new Apple one this time round, only to see they have increased in price by £19 since last September!! And with people still experiencing exactly the same problem! Such a joke.

    Rotten Apple

    Why are we still buying from these people. We have 3 apple product in our home ipad,iPhone and MacBook all have charger issues. It can't be a fluke. It's ridiculous that these people do not see anything wrong with their products. But then it's our fault because they didn't force us to buy. APPLE BEFORE YOU RELEASE THE NEXT PRODUCT WHY NOT TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR CABLES. I'm committed to boycotting you until you fix the problem or give free replacement cables. You owe us that much. CHEAPSKATES! USELESS BRAND

    Frays and overheats

    This is my second charger in 4 years. They are utter pants! I have to keep a ice pack on top of charger to stop over heating. Both chargers frayed at box end. I rarely use it. Was told by shop assistant I was winding it up wrong! Nice try! Can't even rate it! Don't want to give it one star.

    Doesn't anyone from Apple read these reviews? ?

    My Macbook power adapter is fraying and the plastic is splitting (has been held together with tape for 18 months) so I was interested to see whether other people had had the same problem, especially as I'm going to have to replace it with the newer style. I couldn't believe what I found - there are 16 pages dating from 2010 to Sept 2016 where people have constantly complained about the quality of their expensive chargers. Apple needs a minus section for their product rating.
    What exactly is the point of reviewing a product if the manufacturer doesn't read any of them ? Is Apple so convinced of their market lead that they don't bother to listen to their supporters? Doesn't sound like good business sense to me.
    Time to raise your game Apple.

    Tears and frays, exposing wires!

    £65?! *Sigh* Will get a cheap brand one instead - chances are it'll last longer than the OM version. Three years old and has frayed, split and torn through normal use. Has now exposed the metal wires and needs replacing. Poor design...

    Rubbish - why aren't the cables replaceable?????? Money making scam!

    These power adapters are utter rubbish. On a variety of MacBooks, I've had four of these fail (out of four!) ALL WITH THE SAME FAULT - the wire fails at the junction with the Magsafe connector. As the connector is proprietary, you can't just get another connector and solder it on, so you have to go to the expense of buying a new adapter, even though the transformer part is fine!! Enviromental? I don't think so - money making more like. And don't buy one of the cheap so called 'genuine' adapters, 'cos they're even worse! An environmentally/customer friendly company would make the lead detachable so that it can be replaced with a new one. BAD, BAD APPLE!

    Rubbish cable

    Cable frays!!! I've had Macs for 25 years and never had this problem before. I can't believe Apple have the nerve to sell this.
    Utter rubbish.

    Same problem year after year. Please fix this Apple!!!!

    If you've read all the other one star reviews, then you'll know what I'm going to say. Yet another frayed cable at the plug end. Another £65. Everyone is sick of having to fork out for another charger that won't last.

    Caught on fire!

    The cable frayed near the box. Plugged it in, turn around and saw that sparks were flying off it, whenever I moved it would get worse, smoking and emitting little bursts of flames. Had to get someone else to run in and unplug it for me. Could easily have set the house on fire.

    Beyond Rubbish

    Now need a third charger after both former chargers have frayed and both ends and the inner wires become exposed.
    Looks like its overheating too as definite signs of brown/scorching where the cable has split. Bad design and utter rubbish for a £1000 laptop.
    Sort it out Apple
