    I needed a new power adapter when the rubber at the magnetic attachment hub on mine split. There are two different wattage options, and the staff were knowledgeable about which one was the right one for me. Didn't try to up-sell me to a product that would have not made a difference in performance; told me why I the higher wattage wasn't a necessarily better option, even though I was inclined to get it. Honesty of sales staff keeps me coming back.

    Apple 45W Cable Charger

    Honestly, This item is over priced. Especially considering how fragile the material is that retains the copper wiring. I am not an engineer, but I work with several and they despise these made-to-break products. Fortunately, I don't have a choice in the type of product I buy because this is for a work computer and not a personal use computer. Otherwise the solution would be simple. Best Buy would do well to discount products despite their margin. Great way to retain customers.

    Typical Apple product

    Bought this to replace an old frayed wire charger. Bought this smaller version of the larger one for traveling purposes. Due to its smaller size, takes a little longer to charge my 15 inch macbook but it gets the job done. I often get concern about how hot the charger becomes after just a few minutes of charging. This is probably due to the amount of power needed to charge a large laptop like the macbook. Price wise, this small charger was the same price as the larger version.

    I hate that I had to pull the trigger and buy a new apple charger, but I lost the one that came with the laptop. I could have bought a knock off brand on Amazon which would have been way cheaper, but I did not want to risk the knock off charger messing my laptop up. I decided to buy this one to be safe, but man does it hurt the pocket. Wish Apple would make these cheaper, but I guess it's how they make their money.

    The new charger works great. I can’t give it 5 stars because it seems the design is unchanged from the one that failed (plug pins stopped engaging). Chargers shouldn’t need to be replaced. And if there is a common issue as is the case with this Apple design, then change the design or drop the price significantly.

    While I love my Mac's, I have never thought the chargers were well designed. The thinner cable is far to easy to damage, and there is no great way to carry the thing around. I have tried the cable managers by quirky and such, but they don't make it that much easier. I have found that off-brand charger don't last as long, so I still stink with the apple specific ones.

    I like the MagSafe adapters more then the new usb-c for the Macbook Pros, though they do get suffer from classic Apple cable fatigue. What I mean is that they wear down after a few years of use, resulting in a frayed, but functional cord. So you buy a new one, like I did, and I guess that's OK. Would love it if they were as solid as the Mac's they power.

    I like Apple products, but I do wish they could make power supplies less cumbersome and easier to use. Getting it out of a computer case when I need it, seems to invite cable entanglement to the max everytime. Get creative Apple and not have this bulky wall wart end to pug into wall....I think technology can make it smaller and more refined....like your laptops.

    Always Buy From Apple

    I once had a friend who bought a knock off Apple charger for her MacBook and that knock off friend her charger port and made her MacBook unusable. So I always get the certified made by Apple chargers to avoid this problem. They may be pricey, but they're worth it in the long run if you take care of it. I had to buy a second set because I left one at my parent's place in a different city and didn't want to go back to their place to get one.

    This charger is much better that the charger I received with my refurbished Mac. Apparently the charger I was given was a 60W and creating some shock when I would plug it into the outlet. The one the man advised me to get when that one broke does not do that and charges just ever so nicely.

    It was extremely expensive. But I had to have it. My other one didn't die. It was murdered by pets and a recliner. This did exactly what I expected it to do. I just wish Apple products were not so expensive. But if they weren't, than they wouldn't last so long. Well, were it not for the criminal activities of dastardly band of kitties and the ogre reclining couch. I must protect my virgin power adapter at all cost!

    USEFUL and BRAND NEW MacCharger

    I lost the original charger somewhere between home and school. Couldn't remember where that thing got lost along the way :( so had to get a new one. This one seems functional enough. At first I wasn't sure if it would be as good as the original, but it has worked really well and I've had it for a while now. No signs of wear-and-tear although I throw it around quite a bit in my bag and around the house.

    Pricy but worth it

    My 4month husky chewed up the magnetic DC connecter of the original charger so I had to buy this whole thing. I know it isn't Best Buy's fault, but $80 is insane. Or at least could they make an alternative for just the magnetic connector since that's all my puppy chewed up. Kind of how regular laptops have adapters sold separate. For how much you pay to buy the actual Mac -it baffles me that the charger is this much.

    This charger does its job, keeping my laptop charged up (as you'd expect). But is has a few useful features, like the quick connect/disconnect magnetic connection to the computer. I also like the feature where you can disconnect the long cable from the charger and plug it directly into the wall to avoid yet another cable lying on the floor.

    macbook charger replacement

    It was a reasonable price. It is slightly different than my old charger that came with my original MacBook. My old one came with a 65w and this is a 45w, but it works well and just as I need it to! The cord on my old charger broke which is why it needed to be replaced. Best Buy/Apple only has 45w and 85w chargers. It would be nice for them to offer a 65w that my computer originally came with. The 45w gives my computer enough power though.

    I bought this because I recently lost my charger. I usually only purchase apple accessories for my apple products because I find they last longer than cheaper options. This charger is expensive but in my opinion, worth it. It is compact, a little heavy but has a good length. It is magnetized so it attaches to my computer quickly and has additional length-adding accessories if I need to use them. Great product, wish it was cheaper.

    This power adapter performs as it should but the price for Apple products is outrageous. I looked online for 3rd party products but I got nervous about some of the reviews. Safety is a main concern with those. Also Apple cords are notorious for wearing out at the ends.

    5 star rating if the first didn't fail

    This would be a 5 star rating if the first cord wouldn't have failed due to what I believe is a crimped cord. The new one works fine but it is expensive. I can't say it is a 5 star product because the old one died due to the way it was stored and the cord was probably bent for too long. This means that the bending points may need to be protected to ensure functionality over a long term of use and storage.

    This is my second MagSafe DC connector and wish Apple would not charge as much when other manufacturers are 1/2 the price. Only bought this one because I needed one for work and was tired of carrying around this giant power adapter. Overall it does what’s its intended for but if you don’t take care of it, there are signs of wear and tear near the connector to the laptop.
