    I didn't necessarily NEED a new charger, because my original one was working just fine.....albeit with some fraying :) I got this as a gift, and I'm very impressed with how Apple has improved it over the last couple of years! The cord is thicker - hopefully this will prevent fraying, the box part is smaller, and the magnetic end is angled to where it's even with the side of the computer. Feels like the magnet is possibly stronger now as well? I was pleasantly surprised to find that the charger also came with the extension. Knowing Apple, I was afraid they'd package and sell it separately to make more money...It's convenient to have two chargers now; but great to know that when my original one dies, I'll have a fantastic new backup.

    I bought this adapter to replace the original one that came with my older MBP. Although Apple claims that this new adapter is fully compatible with the older adapter, it really isn't. Most of the time, this new adapter will not work with my MBP unless I remove and then reinsert the battery in my laptop first. Obviously, the laptop will need to be powered off in order to do that so this becomes very inconvenient if I'm in the middle of a session and my battery charge runs low since I'd have to quit the session, power off the computer, remove and then reinsert the battery just so I can plug the adapter and have it charge the battery. >:o(

    I have a couple of the newer MBP (unibody) laptops and this adapter does work fine with those computers.

    Another observation is that the AC cord and the wire that plug to the laptop are both stiff (not as flexible as the original adapter).

      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.

            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.

                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.

                            It just goes. I don't think about it, and that's how it should be.

                            However, these aren't designed to endure constant abuse. Users on the go should consider one power adapter for travel, and one for each common location (such as home and work), along with cable ties for quick storage and organization.

                            Excellent, gives more power than the 60W

                            The 85W MagSafe is great. Necessary for MacBook Pro 15", but gives extra power and less load with the 13" MacBook Pro. Works like a charm!

                              Always buy Original Equipment Manufacturer to ensure proper regulated voltage and compatibility. It works without much a fuss. It also comes with a longer cord to replace the stubby power plug that extends your reach by a few extra feet that is very useful.
                              The BnH sales person was kind enough to walk me through the process to ensure I don't need the tip adapter connecting to the computer.
                              If anything I learn about the plug is this: on top of the wire going to the computer are two flipup handles to tie the power cord around, it is a very neat package but do NOT wind it too tight, or else the plastic shielding will break, exposing the wire that may endanger your safety.
                              Only complain is: it's stiff and is it possible for them to make the plug smaller?

                                Comments about Apple 85 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter:

                                This is a well-made adapter. I especially love the MagSafe connector. This adapter is much lighter than the adapters of many other brands of laptops such as Toshiba.

                                I even enjoyed opening the beautiful packaging that this adapter came in.

                                The only possible downside is that the coax cable from the adapter to the MagSafe connecter MAY be fragile. The reason I said this is because the cable of my old adapter broke, prompting me to buy this one. I have no way of knowing whether or not the new adapter has a more durable cable than the old adapter. I sure hope so, in which case the adapter would deserve 5 stars!
