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

Get help buying. or call 1-800-854-3680.
  • 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)

      Broke in less than a year

      I was hesitant to own a Macbook because I don't think any Apple product is worth the prices they get away with charging. I ended up getting one as a birthday gi I was hesitant to own a Macbook because I don't think any Apple product is worth the prices they get away with charging. I ended up getting one as a birthday gift last October from my parents (who are not in any way tech savvy and think chain restaurants equate to a nice night out) after they INSISTED that I have one. They swear by purchasing only Apple, even though they can't give me a straight answer as to why. Anyways, I've been iffy on it and the charger just broke out of nowhere. The cord isn't even twisted or bent at all. It's been 7 months. Why do people pay so much for this stuff?

      Nah B

      if the rubber piece that connects the actual charger piece to the battery splices, and the rubber insulator comes out, you can stick a toothpick in it and push if the rubber piece that connects the actual charger piece to the battery splices, and the rubber insulator comes out, you can stick a toothpick in it and push the metal spiral into the battery and it will work... Down side is you could start an electrical fire, but thats way cheaper than 78 bucks for a charger.

      Stock price goes up quality goes down...

      This product is just...bad.The whole package. Mine actually started to smoke. In the beginning there was just a little tear on the base of the cable. I noticed This product is just...bad.The whole package. Mine actually started to smoke. In the beginning there was just a little tear on the base of the cable. I noticed that it was getting way to hot at that specific point. After maybe 10 charges the tear had become a lot bigger due to the heat. And today suddenly i noticed a smell like something was burning...Yeap it was the charger,it was smoking like some 30$ chinese one. One month earlier my macbook decided not to boot, went to the tech guy no hd problems he said. The verdict? They do that some times. Not worth 1300 euros at all.
