    I travel a lot and got tired of putting the whole charger in and out of my laptop bag, plugging and unplugging from my office to home. Unlike windows laptops, the charger for Apple laptops is big and bulky when you use the entire set of cords. The charger weighs almost as much as my MacBook air. On the plus side Apple chargers have long cords that are adaptable to making shorter. You can unplug the heavier cord by pulling it out of the brick and then attaching a plug adapter to the brick in its place. Having a really nice long version makes it easier to charge while in a meeting because the cord reaches to an outlet. This one came with an adapter so you can leave the longer & clunkier cord at home (or in the car) and just plug in the brick. It charges fast & has little wings to wind the cord to the brick neatly, making it convenient for a laptop case. Was thinking about giving it 4 stars (or 4 1/2) because I can't understand why Apple, with its beautifully designed and light laptops, can't seem to figure out a way to ditch the brick. But, that's not the charger's fault. It works as promised.

    5 Stars for Apple, 3 Stars for Best Buy

    I purchased the 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter as a replacement for the power adapter that came with my MacBook Air. If you're purchasing this power adapter you're already part of the Apple family. The reason behind my review's title pertains to the fact Best Buy could not have actually checked this item prior to putting it back on the shelf as an Open Box - Excellent. First, the power adapter was shoved back inside the box and pushed together. The outer box that shows the picture of the adapter was humped on one side showing the inside contents. Second, the actual white block had the plastic wrapped back around it, half heartedly. When I pulled the plastic off I was slightly disgusted because there was debris that had dried onto the block. Meaning there was no way this was purchased and returned in a day or two. Third, the cable from the MacBook connector to the white power block has 3-5 kinks in the cable. It has charged my MacBook, but needless to say I'm returning it to Best Buy in the morning.

    I bought this because my laptop would no longer charge. My thinking was that my charger was broken. The new charger fixed the issue, but after my old charger sat unplugged for a few days I thought I'd try it one last time, and suddenly my original charger worked again. I had no use for 2 chargers, especially at almost $100 a pop, so I returned my purchase. After reading on some Apple forums, this is a seemingly well known thing. leaving a charger unplugged for a few days can help reset whatever is wrong with them SOMETIMES. In my case it worked and I saved myself some cash.

    I needed to buy this as a replacement because unfortunately I travel and left it at a friends house. The Apple charger has great design and compacts to a decent carry size too. i love the ability to extend the cord with additional lengths and if I don't need it I don't have to have the extra cord bulk. The nice part also is the quick connect/disconnect on the attachment of the computer itself. I have been saved quite a few times by it catching on something before ripping the computer to the floor. A little pricey to replace but overall an excellent charger.

    Great basic front-loader washer and dryer

    Researched Consumer Reports before buying and settled on Whirlpool Duet for price and reliability. Many stackable washer and dryers are cheap, ugly combo units or if they are nicer and full-size, they don't fit in my laundry closet. The Whirlpool Duet fits nicely and looks great! It works extremely well - no problems so far. I went with the most basic Whirlpool Duet models - fewer bells and whistles, but they have everything I need. The washer is so efficient that I can dry lighter loads in about 15 minutes - fantastic! In reviewing other similar models, I found the best prices at Best Buy.

    This baby does what it says! My laptop cable got cut when it got stuck in the cracks of a wooden floor. Man, was i upset. I was like "What the heck!" Then I realized it wasn't apples fault. They weren't even here... they didn't install these wooden floors. So I called the guy who installed the wooden floors and was like "what the heck!" He was like "who is this!" I was like, "Geez bro, but your wooden floors cut my Apple - 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter with Magnetic DC Connector - White!" So anyway, thats that.

    Replacement/Extra Power

    The downside to any laptop is the need for a second power supply, or the need to crawl under a desk to plug in or unplug a power supply everyt time you need to move your computer. Thankfully Apple's power supplies are great quality and compact, allowing them to easily be transported with a laptop, without having to get larer bag. The MagSafe connection is a god-send, expecially around pets and kids.

    It's worth the price

    Yes, Apple products cost more, and yes, Apple's margins are higher. But Apple products are almost always worth the extra cost. And if you are a savvy shopper, you can occasionally get a small discount on Apple products. Best Buy, for example, sometimes offers a discount for purchasing three Apple accessories on one transaction. It never hurts to ask if they are offering that special the day you need one or more of these power supplies. Just be sure you get the right power supply for your model.

    Excellent Apple Power Adapter

    My original Macbook Pro Retina 13 inch Late 2013 model failed after 4 years. While looking for replacements I did look for the more inexpensive options on Amazon. But having to wait for several days for delivery and not so glowing reviews. I settled on buying the original from BestBuy. Works exactly as advertised. However, I do wish Apple would do a better job of strengthening their cables. Besides that, it works exactly as it should.

    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.

    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 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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Needed to purchase a new one for my daughter who is very hard on electronics. The one that came with her computer lasted 3 plus years of abuse so having to get another one was worth it. Theses are recommended as well for Apple products vs off brands so spend the money as you will get your monies worth!

    I replaced the power cord for my daughter's MacBook Air and was shocked that it cost $80. Apple needs to find a way to either better manufactured the cord so it doesn't fray or sell a component part that is much less costly than buying the entire power cord.

    It works great but it's too expensive. I inadvertently left my original at home after packing and leaving too quickly and needed to use my computer on the road so had to buy a second one. It's just an electric plug so, come on! (It's Apple's fault, not Best Buy's). $79.99 - give me a break! I recommend it to a friend if they're stupid enough (like me) to need it.

    Originally it took awhile for the helpers to select the correct cord to work with the Mac Air-someday I hope all power sources are the same connection so I can stop having so many cords! This has a good tight connection and seems to charge quickly. I'm not sure if that is a result of the cord or the computer. My puppy chewed my other one, so I was glad I could get a replacement at Best Buy!
