  • Excerpt: Used to power my Macbook Pro, Mid-2009. This is a replacement for the original adapter. Hopefully the connector on the end of the adapter to the Macbook does not break down or wear out as fast as the original one did.
  • Pros: Long Cord, Simple
  • Cons: End Connection Wears Out

  • Excerpt: Apple designed these ones to break so you have to buy another one. Not even a year of use (not abuse) and the cable that joins the brick is almost cut.
  • Cons: Flimsy, Too Hot

  • Excerpt: Had to get this to replace one that is only 3 years old and treated like a baby. Very upset about having to replace this power adapter. Apple should design one that will last better. Would go with a different one if there were other viable options.
  • Cons: Too Hot

  • Excerpt: I replaced my frayed 65W MagSafe Power Adapter with this Apple 85 Watt. It works very well. The L shape is far better than the old T Shaped connector. My MacBook Pro is a mid 2009, but is functioning well enough to keep & enjoy.
  • Pros: Durable and Reliable, Lightweight, Long Cord, Simple, Universal
  • Cons: Cable Is Stiff But Ok
