    I was rather bummed out when Apple initially introduced the updated MagSafe 2 connector. Primarily because I have a number of Apple products and in the neighborhood of ten original MagSafe power bricks sprinkled about (bedroom, living room, office, den, etc, etc). With this MagSafe to MagSafe 2 converter, instead of spending upwards of $500 on new power bricks, I only have to lay out roughly 10% of that to continue using my existing bricks. The converters grasp on (quite securely, to my surprise) to the original MagSafe connector, while maintaining the more expected ease of disconnection from / reconnection to my Apple products. Great product for sure, however, Apple should have offered it at a lower price point in my opinion.

              What can I say? I have multiple MagSafe 1 power adapters and it is nice to be able to use them again on my newer MacBook Pro. Nice to be able to leave one in the office and not have to haul my current one from room to room.

              Good Service, Huge Box

              By Kyle

              from Florida

              Comments about Apple Magsafe to Magsafe 2 Converter:

              Converter was delivered fast and arrived in good condition. My only complaint was that this tiny converter packaged in a very small box (think matchbox) was delivered in a big box. It could have been shipped in a padded envelope but B&H thought I needed one of their catalogs (wrong! welcome to 2014 B&H, I have the Internet) and instead put it in a box literally big enough to hold 100 of these converters. 5 stars next time if you use appropriate packaging.

                Great Product

                Comments about Apple Magsafe to Magsafe 2 Converter:

                Product works great. I use it to connect a 2014 MacBook Pro to my Thunderbolt Display which has a built in MagSafe connector for powering a MacBook. The converter fits well and is solid. No problems with connecting and the magnets work great to hold the connections. Would highly recommend for those needing to connect an older MagSafe to a newer computer with a MagSafe 2 connector.

                  This converts my older ac cord to my new mac book pro, so I didn't have to purchase another cord for my office. Cool product, and priced right.

                        Despite warnings that it would be lost immediately, it seems to have a strong enough magnet to keep it attached. No problems so far.

                            Why on earth would you spend $[$] or more on a charger when you can convertor your old charge for just [$]. And free shipping. Thanks B&H, can't go wrong with this purchase.

                                This adapter does what it claims. It works well and has a decent magnetic connection.

                                It tends to stay stuck to the cable rather than the computer, which I guess is not bad. I just wish it would have more force when connected to the computer. Since the adapter sticks out a bit, it tends to get knocked away from the computer easier than normal.

                                Very minor complaints for a great product.

                                    is a very strong magnet so it will NOT come off the power supply magsafe without a deliberate bending like motion with hard pull .. a very good aspect for you will not loose it by accident

                                            Pretty much idiot proof. It attaches magnetically to your old macbook cord so that it'll fit a new macbook, providing you with a backup cord. Never going to be at office cursing because I left my other charger at home.

                                                Perfect fit and function. Allows use of larger 60W MacBook MagSafe charger with MacBook Air 11" that has the smaller charger connection. Aluminum, high quality OEM accessory from Apple that's offers great flexibility for working with and charging multiple Mac portables. Strong magnet keeps it firmly in place.

                                                  I was rather bummed out when Apple initially introduced the updated MagSafe 2 connector. Primarily because I have a number of Apple products and in the neighborhood of ten original MagSafe power bricks sprinkled about (bedroom, living room, office, den, etc, etc). With this MagSafe to MagSafe 2 converter, instead of spending upwards of $500 on new power bricks, I only have to lay out roughly 10% of that to continue using my existing bricks. The converters grasp on (quite securely, to my surprise) to the original MagSafe connector, while maintaining the more expected ease of disconnection from / reconnection to my Apple products. Great product for sure, however, Apple should have offered it at a lower price point in my opinion.

                                                          Great and handy adapter for when you are around others with the older charging cable. The only problem I see is that it is tiny and might get lost. But works like a charm!
