    These cheap chargers break. When will Apple make more resilient cords?

    After just a year of regular use, this charger is practically worthless. Why does apple continue to make these cords so cheap?! So frustrated.

    They keep fraying

    I have owned 3 Mac laptops and 6 adapters so far. I sincerely should know better than to re-purchase their product as I am constantly disappointed by their lack of durability. The last adapter I bought lasted me a big two years, and I consider myself to have been extremely careful with it. This is a problem that I have been waiting for years for the company to address. I don't care to have access to Siri from my computer, just make the adapters longer lasting please.

    Why?

    I don't understand why apple makes a disposable charger. My computer was two years old when the charger began to be faulty and it is not fair to customers, as the charger is $80.00.
    Terrible deal.

    Weak sauce

    It's interesting to have an issue (cord fraying after just a year or so of use), do a quick search and find out that you're not even close to the only one with the issue. Bad execution on the MagSafe 2 Power adaptor Apple - something is definitely not up to par and it with the replacement at a premium price I believe this is an issue that deserves looking into and some sort of customer support provided since this is quite obviously not an isolated issue. And to provide additional background, I've had 2 prior MacBook Pros that haven't had anything like this and it's quite disappointing to experience shoddy execution by a company that I've come to expect much better from.

    If zero was an option

    Terrible quality. The plastic rips open causing the charger to stop working. I've gone through three chargers and I've had the computer for four years....Apple has terrible quality products that are way too expensive.

    Same problem as everyone. I've had this macbook charger for almost 1,5 years and the rubber on the cord started ripping open.

    Low Quality

    Apple's MagSafe power adapters consistently rip, break, and wear out no matter how gently you treat them. Their life is consistently shorter than their PC counterparts. This is the weakest and most frustrating link in their product line. Disappointed.

    Too bad "0" is not an option!

    Bad design, terrible quality, and expensive...I think that sums up everything that is wrong with this product. Pros? Yes there are pros but not for the consumers only for Apple!

    Worst charger ever

    After one year of usage it started falling apart. Magnet is barely holding, the cord is total rubbish, to replace it shops charge you $80. The worst part of my MacBook.

    Power Adapter Is Not Representative of Apple Quality

    Everything Apple produces is great except the simple power adapter. I bought PC laptops every 2-3 years for a long time due to various reasons. I was tired of doing this and was very reluctant to spend so much money on an Apple laptop, even though I have been very pleased with my iPhones over the years. When my latest PC laptop failed after only 2 years, I went all in and bought an Apple Mac Pro with Retina display. The laptop is now 3 years old, performs flawlessly every day and looks like I just took it out of the box. However, Apple should be ashamed of their power adapters for their laptops, specifically the sheath that contains the wiring. It is poor quality and tears up within the first year. Since there have been so many complaints, it does look as though Apple is patting themselves on the back in having designed such a poor quality adapter that peopl keep buying year after year because their laptops are such high quality. Shame on you Apple.

    Worst product ever

    I have found that Apple's chargers and cords (phone or laptop) are always horrible to begin with. I always spend a fortune replacing my iphone charger cords each year, so much so that I have stopped buying Apple brand chargers and have gone on to purchase generic ones off ebay and amazon. But this macbook pro charger was the last straw. I just spend $2,000 on a laptop and when the original charger frayed, $80 for a replacement!! Atrocious! I want my money back!!! I am so regretting buying the macbook now. Save your hard earned dollars, go buy a decent PC for much much less. It is not just the cost of Apple products but the maintenance after that costs consumers an arm and a leg.

    Horrible!

    I bough my MacBook pro less than 3 years ago, and I'm going on my 3rd charger. This is unacceptable. They all fray exposing the wires. When you spend nearly $3000 on a computer, you expect more out of it and the accessories that come with it. I've always been a huge apple fan, but lately ALL of your products have been lacking in quality! Very disappointed.

    Garbage

    For $80 this charger should last more than a few months to a year. Once my current macbook dies I will not be buying another one because I'm tired of having to shell out $80 every time my charger stops working.

    Horrible Quality

    I wish I had a choice for purchasing a different cable, because I have had to replace it once a year since I purchased my computer. The cable rips open and warps without being moved. I don't want to risk setting something on fire because the cable rips open and has exposed wires.

    Worst thing on this earth

    I love my Macbook, but this charger is the most infuriating thing i have ever experienced in my life. Ive had one macbook pro before, and the one i have now ive had for a year and the charger has lasted the entire time. However I will NEVER understand why they changed the structure of this charger! the fact that the cord stick straight out is the MOST annoying and frustrating thing EVER! I preferred the old charger, where the cord stuck out parallel to the macbook. I can't charge the dang thing and have it in my lap or on my bed or anything without the cord clicking out at every angle. I hope they reconstruct this back to the previous model, or make both versions because I will tear all my hair out if i have to keep dealing with this piece of junk.

    Terrible Product

    This charger is the bane of my existence. My first charger broke while I was doing research in a foreign country and my Mac battery was also tripping out. I lived in constant fear of losing all of my work if I accidentally moved my computer the slightest and my charger frizzed out. I bought a second charger for $100 which also has frayed to the point of being useless a few weeks over the 12 mo. warranty. Very convenient. Will definitely reconsider buying an apple product in the future.

    Not Durable

    Unfortunately, I've had to buy several chargers for my macbook pro. The cable is weak, and the plastic sheath breaks down fast, revealing the inner shielding. The chargers should last at least as long as the computer lasts! Seeing as so many people have this issue, apple should replace them for customers having these issues!

    Such bad quality

    I've had issues with Apple chargers in the past, but this one takes the cake. As someone who is very careful with their charger, I am disappointed in how quickly the coating of mine wore down.
