Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)

Get help buying. or call 1-800-MY-APPLE.
  • Overview

    The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

      Power adaptors do not last

      Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. S Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues.

      Dear Apple

      I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple yea I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months. Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month! I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC.

      New and Better than the Old MagSafe

As for the MagSafe itself, it feels differently built (for the better), it doesn't nearly get as hot as the old MagSafe did (incredibly this one stays very cool, even on extended periods of time, although that could be because it's new.) Lastly, the actual connector is pretty innovative, feels much sturdier and less prone to fire/breaking/separation issues. It also wraps around a better/more effective contour. All in all, for $79 compared to $99, and the benefits i've named, it's a much better buy than the previous MagSafe (still overpriced, apple)

      Can I leave Zero Stars?

      This is garbage, I am on my third charger by now and they burn out within months. After my first charger, I took every precaution to take care of my new charge This is garbage, I am on my third charger by now and they burn out within months. After my first charger, I took every precaution to take care of my new charger and keep it from getting damaged and it still broke after less than a year. This charger has a 1.5 star review on its own website for a reason. It does not matter how good the computer is if you have to pay almost $100 for a charger every year just to keep it working. I will never buy another apple computer for this reason until they figure out how to make a product that works. Save yourself the time and money and just buy a computer from somewhere else, apple couldn't care less about their customers.

      Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter

      Purchased in November 2015. The cable lasted for about 18 months and then the rubber casing started to split. It has continued to split since that time and is r Purchased in November 2015. The cable lasted for about 18 months and then the rubber casing started to split. It has continued to split since that time and is rapidly becoming unsafe. Apple needs to either change the material for the cable casing OR redesign the adapter so the cable can be replaced without having to buy an entirely new unit. Bottom line: Not a good buy and should be an embarrassment to Apple for selling such a shoddy piece of gear.

      Horrible!

      Like everyone else says, these things are horrible... they definitely don't hold up. Going through three chargers in two years is insane...
