    Works as expected.

    Our charger stopped fully charging our MAC only a few months after we bought the MAC. Insurance doesn't cover "accessories", so we had to purchase a new charger. It works fine, but $80 for a charger is crazy. Just hope this one lasts longer than the first. I recommend it if you have to operate your MAC, but if there's a cheaper one out there I'd go for that!

    I bought this as a backup to my original power adapter that came with my laptop, because I travel to remote locations. It is an Apple product and true to form, is of excellent quality. It came with the detachable AC power cord and the AC plug adapter for plugging the power "brick" directly into the outlet. All packaging was original. I did test it and it works fine.

    Despite hesitations with open box products, it becomes very clear that Best Buy checks for any damages or flaws before re shelving. I made this purchase simply because I left my original charger at a friends house, however, I pretty much got a brand new one at a discounted rate. Now I'll have two, but we all know that's not really a bad thing.

    I bought a less expensive one and I guess it didn't have the right power and after a couple weeks it wouldn't charge at all.. so I went and paid the $90+ dollars for another apple charger and it works perfectly.. I just wish it was sturdier.. I've gone thru a couple from my kids using it.. just normal use but cord always splits open..

    Check for which wattage you need!

    I bought this adapter for my MacBook Air. I had lost my original ... bummer, because it was always very dependable. Anyway, I discovered after buying it that it's a 60 watt adapter and my MacBook Air requires 45 watt. I understand that, although it works, it might compromise the battery life of the MacBook Air.

    After the silly puppies decided the original cord was a chew toy (no, it wasn’t plugged in), I needed a replacement. This is the exact Apple charging cord. I had gone to another big box store where they sold me the wrong one. The Best Buy associate walked me to the spot, picked it out, and I was on my way in about five minutes.

    This is the official magsafe replacement power adapter. For ac adapters, I am leery of off-brand replacements, since I have seen more failures (and sometimes a power surge which caused a short in the laptop.) So far, the battery charges just fine, and lasts all day with both the origina, which I keep at work, and the replacement adapter I use at home.

    Expensive, with designed obsolescence

    I purchased this to replace a previous 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter. The adapter itself works great but the cable area that connects to the Macbook wears away after a year of use until the wires become exposed. I mark this as recommended since using 3rd party chargers has not worked out.

    I left my charger out of country and needed a replacement, fast! I ordered this charger for store pick up. I got a phone call from my local store saying their count was off, they did not have it in stock but would overnight it from another store for me for free. I picked it up the next day. Everything is as it should be, just like the original charger.

    This charger works okay. It is a little slow to charge my MacBook Pro. The next size up would've been ideal and was not available in the store. Make sure you know what size you need, the Best Buy staff did not know enough of the differences to make sure I had the right one, I had to call a member of my IT staff.

    Great sound, noise cancelling and COOL features.

    Love the feature of being able to block noise cancelling by putting hand over the right ear cup so you can hear someone and talk back and how well headphones perform. Sound is great...not muddy or too bass-y. App on phone easy to use and connection via bluetooth or old way via chord to my old iPod is great combo!

    I gave this 5 stars as I am sure that it does what it is supposed to do. The sales person told me that this was the correct battery for my MAC Pro (exact words were "it fits all MACS". No it does not. I had to return and exchange for the correct cable. Make sure that you check your MAC specs before you go buy a new charging cable.

    Online description for this open box item was that it was just like new and it has lived up to the description. Was in perfect condition with no scratches and works perfectly. Powers up my iMac like the original cord did.

    My dogs chewed up my original charger that came with my MacBook Air. Trying to save money I purchased an off brand from Amazon. Bad idea! It stopped working in a couple weeks. Taught me a lesson, just spend the money and buy the best product you can. Glad I did.

    I have had to replace my fair share of laptop chargers and always had a problem with availability from the manufacturer. Not with Apple. My store had more than sufficient supply. The build of this charger is so innovative between the magnetic attachment and the included extension. Only bummer is the Apple markup.

    My old one broke. Bought this original Apple product from Best Buy. Same price as at the Apple Store. Chose Best Buy because of its superior customer service. Ship to store worked great. Remember to bring your photo id for pick up.

    Apple is wrong for putting something out that wears out in under a year! I have never had issues with my PC chargers but after a year, this one is already showing signs of fraying and that's with the $10 "cord protectors" I put on it. I shouldn't have to buy cord protectors for this...it should be made right.

    This charger comes with two cords that allows me to better utilize my laptop especially in places where my outlet is far . I enjoy the clips that helps me wrap up my cord when I’m on the go. Much better design from the previous one I had .

    This is the only adaptor I'd consider getting for the 11" MacBook Air, and if your cat's chewed the first one like mine did, you'll need this to replace it. Worth noting that I bought an open-box one which was said to come with "all included accessories" and it was missing the small cube that goes from the power brick directly to the socket.

    My son's MacBook Air adapter died. So, we had to buy a simple replacement that, from MOST other computer manufacturers, would be a $20-$30 cost. Not Apple though....plan to pay anywhere from $50-$100 more as a rule, for ANY of their hardware. But hey, it's a really GOOD-LOOKING and WELL-DESIGNED power adapter. #Sheesh
