Excerpt: This replaces the (same model) adapter that came with my 1 1/2 year old 13" Retina MBP. The cord on that one is fraying (literally falling off the ground shield underneath - in large pieces). I'd like to think the new one has fixed this problem but I don't have high expectations.
Excerpt: Just wanted a spare magsafe2 connector for my Retina Macbook Pro so that i didn't have to unplug the one at my desk. I like the way that Apple does the plugs on their adapters where you can plug the brick into the wall or use a longer cord.
Macbook Pro charger? More like Macbook NO charger!

Summary: Just bought this charger four months ago and it's already broken. Not to mention the fact that this was the third charger I have bought.If you're gonna make such a low quality charger then give a low quality price. C'mon apple, you're better than this.
Summary: The magnet is simply too weak. I believe all other comments point out the same problem. This is simply unacceptable - if anyone from the Apple engineering team is actually reading this comment, please consider redesigning the adapter and while you're at it, make it cheaper? Very thanks.
Summary: Time to stop dancing around the issue and just call this charger what it is--defective. I The magnet is so weak that during a normal 3 hour session using my MacBook Pro Retina it detaches several times, a problem I never experienced with the charger that attached flush to my previous MacBook.
Summary: As stated above, it falls out. Constantly. Don't let the cable get even slightly tangled either. Any inevitable kink will surely sever any charging ability whatsoever. Never fear though, they are only $80.00 to replace.
