    I accidently damaged the adapter that came with my apple computer. Actually i caught the wire in the mechanism that controls my recliner.. The recliner inadvertinently stripped my adapter and left it in disrepair. I feared that i might have a severe problem with damage to my apple or maybe burn it up completely so off to the Best Buy in Morehead City n.c. i went . The folks there listened to my problem and understood it and quickly advised me that i did right by shutting my computer down and discarding my adapter . They then assured me that they would be able to find me a new replacement and off we went . I was introduced to the Best Buy agent that worked the computer section who after being introduced to me and my problem immediately went to straight to the Mag Safe 60 watt adapter. He picked it up and advised that this would be the correct replacement for me. I asked him a few questions and he politely and correctly answered my concerns..At that time i felt that i had received the best information from the agents there so i purchased it and upon arriving home i immediately plugged in in and it has worked perfectly ever sense....I am a Best Buy fan and customer and i highly recommend them as they will always take care to listen to you and and find the right solution.. Also i note that if when i am in the store and have questions of a technical nature and happen to get a new agent or an agent that works in a different section and does not know the answer then him or her will walk me personally over to the section that i need to be in and then locates the agent specialist of that section and introduces me and my issue which assures me that Best Buy has the best trained people to go to buy electronics and gadgets. So many other stores offers sale prices on electronics but the employees don't have enough training and knowledge to to really be helpful... Thanks Best Buy for another job well done...L. C. Swain..

    Good but not great (could be)

    The charger is a great 'cool idea" that needed more thought when it was engineered! The magsafe connector is great but the wire that connects to it to the power brick is simply awful. I have my family on four different macbook pro products and have replaced all four chargers. Most of the time it is an issue with the inner wiring design. I have had a couple chargers that have just up and quit for different reasons and apple or the geek squad did take care of me on those, but only because i paid for the extended warranty. I have done 'post mortums" on a couple of the chargers and found that the braided wire breaks where is twisted around the inner wire. The inslulation stretches but the twisted wire will only stretch so much. Why put a built in wire reel in the brick if it causes the charger wires to fail prematurely?? If the insulation has any wear this can definetely be a shock/fire hazard. I shouldnt complain too much because every laptop that i have ever had to replace a charger on has been more expensive and just as crummy . At least the apple charger is sexy to look at...i guess. Its too bad that these awesome computers have such a lousy charger. Just do a search on google ou youtube and see for yourself. I would still buy MAC! I do love the magsafe concept.

    Third mac charger-this one just broke too

    Posted

    This was my third mac charger in the two years I've had my macbook pro. It too just broke after only 3 months of use. This is getting ridiculous these chargers are expensive. The first I had for a little over a year so it was out of warranty. I bought a refurbished one the second time to try to avoid paying the astronomical $80 for a new one. That one broke too and didn't have a warranty. I bought this one new so I could have a warranty. Hopefully it works because I've already shelled out close to $120 on chargers for a computer that was expensive to begin with. I take good care of my chargers and typically use them at home and don't even move them. none of them showed any sign of damage, just stopped working. This is not best buy's fault of course but apples. I can't believe this is still a problem considering how long the macbook has been out. I love macs but this is a major drawback when you can buy a pc and have the charger last 10+ years.

    It's sad. I really enjoy my Apple products. Their attention to detail and their user friendly designs are the best of the best. However, for some reason and for many years, they continue to pass right over the MageSafe power adapter design when rethinking their products. Yes, they changed the magnetic connector. Which, I presume was done to make it sit more flush to the body of the notebook. However, they keep looking right past the absolute worst part of the design. Where the power cord runs into the converter block. This flimsy design results in worn and faulty wires after about a year of use. So, every year I have to go back to the store and purchase a new one at $80 a pop. I gave this rating a 2nd star only for the fact that I love being able to add the power cord extension on with a quick snap.

    These things are ridiculously expensive. I have a two and a half year old lap top and I am on my 3rd power adapter now. They just aren't very durable. Another annoying thing about them is that the small cord rarely stays wrapped around the little fold out arms. The best things about them are: 1) they are fairly small and lightweight and 2) The MagSafe feature has definitely kept my laptop from being pulled off the table when the cord is tripped on. I haven't tried an off-brand for this model power adapter, but I did when I had the older model, and it had an even shorter life span than the Apple brand adapter. I've stuck with the Apple brand as the adapter for this laptop because the Apple ones are available in most electronics stores and the off-brands usually have to be ordered, which is inconvenient when your laptop is about to die. There is never a convenient time for them to break and often they break suddenly without any warning. If you need to buy a new one, you need to, it's just one of those things that you have to spend money on even if you feel like it's a waste. I guess I would recommend it because it's better than not being able to charge your laptop.

    Open Box Fail

    After reading positive reviews about the open box options available at Best Buy, I decided to take my chances and order that. At $18 off the original price I thought it would be a good deal, but I was wrong. The charger I received was said to have no missing parts and be in excellent condition. In fact, the charger I received had only one of the two outlet plugs pictured (the long one with the cord; the short outlet plug was not included). Additionally, the cord from the charging box to the computer was noticeably dirty, and the cord covering at the point where the adapter connects to the computer was separated, making the wires visible. Obviously, the charger was NOT in excellent condition nor did it have all of the advertised parts. The charger didn't even actually work on my laptop, so I am obviously VERY disappointed and will be returning.

    Solid AC adaptor with great portability for travel

    This is the standard Apple adapter, and there are lots of places that highlight the good and bad of these products. They've come a long way in material development since the original versions, but Apple has always done a great job of creating self-contained, efficient AC adaptors, and this is a key Apple differentiator from their competition, which are still using the two-piece long brick adapters after all these years. My only subtle complaint is that the cord, made of dirt-grabbing rubber, is white, as is the brick itself and the optional extension cord. Using Black or offering color choices would add to Apple's aesthetic without sacrificing their clean design. Even a silver/dark gray brick with black cabling would match their design of the hardware well. All in all, my favorite AC adapter style, and the "standard" by which I hold all other hardware manufacturers... Not that any have come close to this simplicity. Of particular note is the "duck head" or extension cord option, allowing you to swap the extra 1m/3ft cable with a simple plug head that lets you put the brick directly into the wall. This is also IMMENSELY useful when traveling internationally, as you can swap cords/heads for the region you're visiting.

    Great power cord, but still needs to be tougher

    I really like this power cable, but I think they need to make the outer cover of the part that directly hooks up to your MacBook tougher. It’s thin, and after so much handling, it will start tearing, and the clad will show underneath, putting you at risk for electrical shocks. The original cord my MacBook came with lasted from 2011 when I bought it to about ‘15-‘16, when I was going to school. The reason? I had started taking it with me to class more. Up until then, my Mac just sat on my desk at home. In other words, you need to make the cable more suited for travel. The back end of the cord is fine, the front end needs to be more durable. Other than that, it’s a good cord. This is my second one, on avg., they’re good for about a year and a half to two years. But it still hurts to have to cough up $80 for them each time! Lower the price!
