    This is the worst charger ever, i am on my 4th one now, they just last long enough to get past the warrantee, first one just died, the second one the top fell off, the third wouldn’t charge only on occasion, and the forth the top fell off, Apple please upgrade this product.

    apple please change the charger for this, I rarely even take my laptop out of the house and within the first 3 months of getting one it wouldn't charge unless i put it in a specific way, then when i got my second one i hadnt even had it for 2 years and then it broke again just for no reason, i didnt do anthing to it but one night it stopped charging

    power adapter

    • Written by michael W from plymouth

    i've had my macbook pro for 2 years now and the power adapter has been playing up for a few months, today the end came off, i think its a disgrace that this vital part is a consumable item,i've read many complaints about past and present power supply cables and apple are just not getting it right.. i have laptop adapters that are over 10 years old and show no signs of failure, i now have to spend £65 on a new power adapter so i can use my macbook...not impressed, ive given it 1 star but only because i have to...if the next adapter fails in such a short time, i'll be going back to pc.

    Absolute rubbish

    • Written by Joe C from Upminster

    Am now on my third charger in 18 months, for a laptop that doesn't leave the house - the most that happens to it is it gets moved from table to lap, yet the previous two chargers have died, and Apple have the audacity to charge £65 for a replacement.

    Fortunately I found a spares shop that sold me one for a more acceptable £26, but the point remains that I shouldn't even have needed to buy one, let alone two, in the first place

    This charger is terrible. It gets REALLY hot and doesn't even work after a few months - not charging, saying it's charging when it isn't, etc. Considering how expensive they are, it isn't good enough.

    aweful, once again apple has gone for form over function

    • Written by alfie M from Poole

    This is aweful, the rubber used feels lovey, well done apple, but is so soft that it tears and frays if it is curled up regularly (and considering it's for a PORTABLE laptop, it does get curled up regularly for transit).

    When will you learn apple that products have to be good quality and not just feel and look nice for you to charge stupid amounts of money.
    I hardly use OSX any more so I probably won't be buying another macbook, £1500 for a computer with a GPU with 256mb of VRAM, stupid apple, stupid me.

    So Annoying

    • Written by charlie T from Bury st edmunds

    I love apple products, have had an macbook pro for about 2 years now and don't want to go back to windows but where do I start with the chargers. i've had 2 chargers in 2 years and I had to buy a third about a week ago. and already its playing up !! sometimes it works and then it doesn't. They should make a protection plan for the chargers because they are rubbish!!!

    Extortionate Cost for a Flimsy Design

    • Written by L B from Weybridge

    My original charger's wire connection at the magnetic end broke so I bought a new £60 "magsafe power adapter" which broke in the same place after only 3-4 weeks of limited use!!! If this design is so unreliable and needs to be replaced so frequently surely it should not cost this much! This charger design is not robust enough for day to day use, I have now spent £120 just to use my laptop. Not up to Apple's usual standards. Very disappointed.

    Very Poor Product

    • Written by Ryan S from London

    My original cable has finally given up the ghost after 18 months however during this time I have had days when the charger just would not work rendering my MBP 13" useless. It would then start charging again after a day or two! I may just bin and go back to Sony as I'm not prepapred to pay £65 for another unrelaible, poorly constructed product.

    L shaped cord epic fail

    • Written by Craig S from bronx

    This is my fourth power cord from apple, you think they would get a clue and fix the issue. Enough with design make a product that works. They charge 80$ for a new one I'm being robbed and I'm am so annoyed. This is absolute foolishness, I buy apple products because there supposed to have great quality I don't see that. My L shaped cord keeps breaking in the same spot and on top of that this last one nearly burned my house down. Apple needs to get it together or I'm switching.

    Its not like you have any other option...

    • Written by Ashley R from Carlsbad

    Make sure you handle with oven mitts!!! I have a bubbling, blistering burn on my leg from this charger. On the plus side, it charges my computer really well (thus the reason I gave it an extra star for charging so well... and i like that its magnetic). But seriously, be careful about how hot it gets. Wish I could show you my oozing burn from this bad boy.

    Terrible Power adapters

    • Written by Susan A from Cardiff

    I really do not have a word for it, however this is the most annoying product. its more annoying because i thought it was more durable. I have had to change my Power adapter 4 times in two years. in addition to changing the base which completely came off, hard drive completely fried and track pad going haywire. I am really disappointed, more disappointed because i had to save some money just to get the almighty mac. not so mighty after all.

    This product should last, it simply should not fail after two years of service. I feel ripped off. If you go to the mac community you will see that this problem is a common one. Bad job Mac, bad job.

    This is a shame, totally worthless!

    • Written by Daniel O from Bristol

    I'm giving one star as none or negative is not available. Great idea but executed poorly. Third one in two years. Cables snap like straws. Last one had more stiff cable. The only difference was that is was more annoying. USE THICKER CABLE APPLE! It doesn't to be a "looker" it needs to be a working horse! OR make a battery top up wireless? Induction....?

    Very Very poor

    • Written by Jonathan K from Croydon

    My girlfriend and I have, between us, been through a total of 5 cables this year. They work for a ridiculously short time, and then suddenly off goes the LED, and the laptop doesn't charge anymore. Cable rendered useless.

    As Apple has a monopoly on producing Macbook-compatible power cables, the least they could do is ensure that my £65 (cost of a replacement) goes towards a functional product. I never had this problem with my old iBook, so why should I have this problem with the newer Macbook Pro?

    Absolutely useless

    • Written by Joe O from Rotherham

    I am now writing this review on my dying mac thanks to these terrible chargers. Now out of warranty and 3rd broken charger I guess I have no choice but to buy a new £65 replacement. Absolute scam. I feel let down apple, very let down at the quality of these.
