    I lost my charger so I thought instead of ordering a cheap one through Ebay I got an original I phone charger. Well it helped to charge but any outlet or USB I attach it to says " charging is not supported with this accessory" I would of liked for this product not to have a faulty message on my phone but oh well. So i guess i should of payed less money at Ebay for a cheep one and still had the same result.

    Inconsistent Charge

    I have a MacBook Pro 15in w/ Retina Display and I previously used an 85w charger since 2013. Sometimes I have to attach this 45w charger to my mac a few different times for the light to come on and for it to actually charge. Otherwise, if the light doesn't come on with the charger it shows up on my mac as charging but it will only stall the battery.

    It works but it is well known that Apple cords are not very well made. If the price was even half this I would be OK. I looked into 3rd party cords but at least most Apple products do not overheat. My review should be solely based on the performance of the product but $80 is ridiculous,

    A plug for $75? Definitely overpriced. However, it might have been worth it if the plug was a quality product. Apple usually makes quality products, and I'm willing to pay extra for quality. But I have gone through 4 of these plugs. They last about a year before the cord starts fraying.

    I purchased the Miscrosoft 365 Office for my Mac. I told the sales person that I only uses Word, Excel and Publisher. I questioned him 3 times on the card which did not list it on the front, but did have check marked on the back that Publisher was included. It wasn't. Best Buy will not return it.

    Apple seems to have improved the cable thickness at the brick end as well as the connector end, but the cable in other places seems to be as flimsy as ever. After two weeks of normal use, I've already begun seeing worrying kinks in the mid portion of the cable

    Third Replacement Cord

    Apple's charging cords are cheaply made, and I suspect they are also made to deteriorate after a year or two of use. Mind you I don't abuse my electronics. It's a matter of a cheaply made good. But if you use Apple, what are you supposed to do?

    This is the third time i have to purchase this adapter and i have no choice since it's made for the apple computers. The cable chips easily,cracks and brakes all the time. Hate it. But, there is no other choice

    The cord that plugs into computer is too thin and fragile. It becomes frayed and eventually stops working. For the price, it should be more durable and able to withstand more wear and tear.

    Bought my daughter a MBA in January, it stopped working 2.5 months later. At $80 a cord and if they all stop working after that amount of time, this is going to get spendy very quickly.

    This charger is way over priced but it's an apple product. The cable should detach so you can just replace the cable but no they make it so you buy another charger

    Bought this as a replacement. Quite expensive given the poor design and quality that leads to frequent replacement. Wouldn't recommend except you need the charger.

    Apple’s power chords, etc. are so expensive. They get you on all the earbuds and chords you need in order to operate their products.

    I lost a small piece of the charger but had to buy the whole charger to replace the one small piece to a total of $80. There is no other option.

    The apple premium on these is ridiculous and the magnetic connector keeps breaking on the wire part too quick. Even under moderate use.

    Product was ok but it was too much over priced, if Apple would sell products with good quality then ee may not need for replacement

    This product itself is good and simple to use the only problem was you have to make sure what watts was your old charger
