Not Reliable

I think 3 macbooks and so far I had to replace this cable on each of them and all for different reasons. The one had the cable wear out, the other there was something wrong with the block where it would run the macbook off the power cable but not charge the battery, the third one had some sort of internal damage that melted the prongs.

Power cord

I have 3 MacBooks pro. 5 years, 3years and 1 year old. Had 1 each replaced both of the oldest macs under warranty . Need another on the 3 year old on again. Warranty over. The same problem an all cords.The wire cord next to the bulky part keeps falling apart even with minimal use. This is a recurring problem for most people. Should be solved by manufacture and treated as a recall. I have 8 iPhones 3 i pads and very happy with all Mac products including my 3 apple TV. But this issue is a big disappoint to me and I am sure to many others.

This is now my 2nd charger to get damage. The wire cord next to the bulky part keeps falling apart even with minimal use. 2 of them lasts less than 2-3 years. replacement is expensive and without a charge, can't charge my laptop.

Good Charger

Cord lasted 3 years with no problems although i think it should last longer. Cord frayed at adaptor attachment. This is only my first charger had to buy for my Macbook Pro other than the original one it came with 8 years ago.

Lasted Three Years

My adapter lasted three years with no problems. No overheating, no melting, no charging issues. I traveled with it, used it all the time. No problems for three years. But eventually the cord frayed at the adapter.

Poor design

Apple continues to use poor design on these devices. I am certain this is not the last one I will have to buy.

Made NOT to Last...

Sure they are pretty but In all my years of owning macs....these adapter cords tear without fail. I've had one computer barely leave the house and still tear after maybe 4-5 months's ridiculous and Im sure Apple knows it! So they profit from consumer re-buying adapters over and over again. Consider it their residual income.

Apple makes a great product but they need to revamp their power cable. The internal wires end up getting damaged and the adaptor will not last longer than a year.

Faulty Power Adapter

I am on my 3rd one. Luckily when I purchased my Apple computer I purchased the additional protection plan. The day before it ran out my 3rd adapter burnt out. I was able to purchase a protection plan for just the adapter. I was told that the newer Apples have a different adapter, and that this particular Apple adapter is a problem. No kidding.

You don't really have a choice

This is your only option. It will over heat and melt, or the internal wire will fray and it will fail. It's disappointing that Apple made such a less than quality product.
