My granddaughter uses the Macbook Air for college, but, recently the cat decided to chew on the wire to the power adapter. It still worked fine but with wire exposed it posed a safety concern. I know there has been a lot of problems with this adapter reported on user boards, but , this one has lasted for nearly 5 years with no trouble (other than the cat). I considered replacing the wire and still may when I get time and inclination . For now buying a new one was the best solution. This supplier has the best prices, no sales tax and a good track record.

Let's be honest

You're here for the same reason I am - our frail, overpriced ac adapters either broke, frayed or no longer charge. Probably after less than a few years.

Apple computers are great. Their chargers are junk. They know it - check out the reviews on Apple's own site - and we know it.

              I looked all over for this power adapter and finally found it at B&H; so very happy to find it as I desperately needed it and came in right on the scheduled day of delivery. Thanks so much.

                Having another adapter is really helpful. I go up and downstairs taking my Macbook Air and the battery only lasts so long. Having another adapter upstairs to plug into makes this a non-issue.

                No worries about getting a counterfit adapter when ordering from B&H (I wasn't so sure if I had ordered it from another .com, to be honest).

                    It does work great. The cable is a little thinner than original one but it works ok.

                        This is the real Apple Power Adapter. Some sites do not actually sell the real thing. Works very well, as do most Apple products. Overpriced however, for which it loses a star.
