    Ignore all the silly negative reviews of this product. This accessory is useful, reliable and worth buying.

    Worked flawlessly for years

    • Written by Ian C from READING

    I've been really pleased with this - on my old Cinema display at work - that is 8 years old, the magsafe adapter is now 4 1/2 years old and is still going strong.

    AVOID THIS JUNK, really disappointed.

    • Written by michael A from london

    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

    • Written by JOHN M from LONDON

    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.

    The problem I have experienced since about a year after purchasing the Thunderbolt display to run with my mid-2012 MacBook Pro, is that getting the charging light to come on is a matter of wiggling the adapter about for an indeterminate length of time. 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.

    Don't throw out your old chargers

    This is an excellent little converter that prolongs the life or usage of your old adaptors. A bit over-priced, but a lot cheaper than a new adaptor.

    Fails to charge

    • Written by Edward D from BASINGSTOKE

    Bought this to enable me to use my old charging leads since Apple kindly changed the docking point. This worked for about a month then died for no apparent reason.

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

    • Written by R E C from Wallasey

    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

    • Written by E T from Kenmare

    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.

    Great little adaptor...

    • Written by Richard C from TELFORD

    Superb. Does exactly what it needs to. I'm using it on a power cable from a mid-2012 MBP to a 2014 rMBP. No issues with overheating or slow charging as reported in other posts.

    The magnet gives a strong, reassuring fit without losing its purpose. The only reason I'm not giving 5-star is that I feel Apple could have engineering a 'clip' so you can attach it to the cable as not to misplace it when not in use. I'm quite handy so I think I can cobble one together myself.

    All-in-all if you have a spare older power cord and a newer Macbook it's a no brainer.

    Falls off!

    • Written by Jonas G from Fredericia

    It does what it is supposed to do. But it doesn't keep being attached that easily as you might would have expect. If you lift your mac, turns it a little on the table, or anything else.. it just pops right off. It's not the magnet that there is anything wrong with.. it just isn't designed to be that handy. But it works though..

    Loose connection

    • Written by Mikkel Juul J from Hvalsø

    Have 2 of them - both looses connection and they get extremely hot. The connectors on my Macbook Pro are miscoloured, and look burned. Would expect something this simple to work better.
