Simply Awful.

  • Summary: The DC side of cord overheated at the base of the inverter and frayed away from it. This happened right after my warrantee ran out. Why in the world does apple not make this a standard DC plug? Then at least I could replace the cord instead of the entire assembly.

  • Summary: Terrible design/construction. The weak cable broke and does not work anymore, after very careful use. Replacement cost is also extortionate. Shame on you Apple.

  • Summary: Yes, it sticks out and I prefer the old design that laid closer to the computer. However, it only gets knocked out if you actually bump the cord, it won't if you just move your computer around (and staying in the computer when bumped would be worse, because it could cause damage to the cord or...

Systemic issue with MacBook Pro Adapters

Christine S, Apple Store

  • Summary: What is it exactly about Apple where they refuse to correct this known deficiency? Over the past eight years I have seen no less than five charger cords fray and stop working. It never gets better.

Won't Stay In

Thomas B, Apple Store

  • Summary: I don't know why Apple can't leave well-enough alone. The older version of the MagSafe adapter was great. It had a low profile and sat very close to the body of the computer.

Apple Should Take Responsibility For This Horrible Product

David S, Apple Store

  • Summary: Now on my third MacBook Pro retina 85w power supply in a three year old laptop. Same thing happened both times. The cord turned yellow at the magsafe connector end, and then became frayed virtually overnight. This occurred over normal use both times. Simply MBPr was plugged in and it failed.
