I bought a replacement after my original one's cord broke off the power brick. Lesson here is NEVER pull it out of the wall outlet by pulling the cord. I learned the hard way and a replacement is not that cheap.

I lost my old adapter to my macbook and had to buy this out of desperation. It's [$] which is ridiculous, and the rubber exterior is really stiff and hard to use when I wrap it around the knobs. Some folks at B&H told me that Apple has this patent for a few more years, so the price of it doesn't look like it's going down any time soon. I mean, if the type of material that they're using for this adapter will last longer, that's terrific. But if you're looking to replace your old adapter and actually can afford to live without it for a few days, order either the old model, or hunt around for cheaper prices.

          Comments about Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook and 13" MacBook Pro:

          It's a replacement power adapter for your Macbook or Macbook pro. Mine's a 2 year old pro. Laptop works fine, original power cord developed some wear and wires were visible. The replacement is exactly the same as my old one. Past laptops usually needed replacement because the physical power brick got messed up, and the replacement usually cost more than this. It's much better to have the failure be a slow fail with plenty of time to get a replacement.

            Although the magsafe is a good idea, the wire that connects to the laptop is a bit thin and prone to easy wear and tear. Take care of this one because unfortunately the Mac doesn't offer too many options. This is my second adapter, hopefully lasts longer than the first one.

            Comments about Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook and 13" MacBook Pro:

            Since our kitten chewed on the one part (adapter plug in) of the original cord and I lost the other half on a train, I needed to cough up $ for a replacement for a 4 year old MacBook Pro. I gave 4 stars because Apple charges too much for a necessary part. Simple Apple design. I like that when we travel I only need to bring the Mag Safe part which saves on items to pack and store in our camper, unlike PC power cords that you have to use both parts. The best part is the Mag Safe connection which separates easily when I or a dog trip over the cord. My first PoweBook G4 had a conventional power cord which I tripped over and ruined the plug in port. B&H has very competitive prices and I believe this shipped free. One of the best parts is no Washington state sales tax (8.7%). B&H has a very wide array of goods to sell and I can always find what I am looking for.

              After many years use, my old MBP charger broke. The new one seems to be stronger and built better (even though it looks 100% the same).

              Thank you B&H for the excellent customer service.

                  I use this charger as a replacement for my original 60w "T" style macbook charger and it works great. OG charger konked out after pulling it by the wire one too many times.I would suggest paying the extra few bucks for the OEM apple charger replacement instead of saving money on a crummy charger on[@] that will inevitably break.FYI: You can also use an 85w charger with 60w computer as the computer regulates the amount of power let in. You should NOT use the 60w charger on an 85w computer because it is not enough juice in the first place.

                  What can I say it's a charger and it works. Every time you buy a certified Apple product no matter how small expect to pay for it! It was a little hard to find at B&H and a little hard to get someone's attention but once I did I received very good service.

                    I needed a replacement charger for my Macbook Pro because I broke the one I had.

                    It came nicely packaged and shipped fast. It is the exact charger I had and even came with another apple sticker which was quite nice for my mac :).

                    I can't say anything bad about it.

                          This is just like the original and comes with all parts in the box.

                          Could be more durable. I purchased extended SquareTrade warranty.

                                  Bought this adapter new in April 2013 as a replacement for the family macbook 3.1 adapter (macbook is 64 months, 1300 + cycles, 80% battery capacity). This new adapter's pin is similar to the adapter on the Macbook Unibody (version 6.1). The old original T-shaped adapter's pins got permanently stuck in its tiny casing and was useless even though the main power unit was functional.

                                  The product came in its original unopened Apple adapter box; would buy this product again from B&H. Thanks.

                                  As far as chargers go, it's expensive--but it's a mac. I needed a replacement charger when my hand-me-down one finally went and fizzled out. (the duckbill plug part cracked)This new one works just fine so far!

                                        Comments about Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook and 13" MacBook Pro:

                                        I purchased the metal, 13" MacBook MB466LL/A from B&H in early 2009, and the power charger that came with that Mac had been working fine for almost 4 years until it finally stopped charging the MacBook (it was the "T" style charger).

                                        This replacement worked perfect (it is the newer, "L" style).

                                        Pros:
                                        * Connects a little better to the Mac, always starts charging.
                                        * Is the real deal: I looked into a lot of other chargers, but went with B&H because it is an authentic charger and not some knock off.

                                        Cons:
                                        * Price! Really Apple? That much for a charger? Oh well...

                                                    Had to buy a new charger after the old one broke, like it happens to most chargers after a year or two, which is absolutely defective and probably on purpose. Anyway, works well now and hopefully will continue to do so for longer than the last one.
