I specifically purchased this as a spare power supply after forgetting mine a home one time. Now I leave one connected at home in the office and this one is constantly in my laptop backpack.

The idea of a mag connector is SUPER. And for the many people who don't understand the colored light on the connector, YELLOW = charging and GREEN = charge complete.

The ends of the smaller cord, like any such device, are the most apt to weaken from bending and break. I make is my personal practice to keep stress off these weak points to achieve the greatest longevity in the product. This is not a defect in the product but a simple fact, the weak point in a cord is where it bends or is stressed.

      If I ever have to buy another one, I'll consider aftermarket. $[$]is way overpriced.

          Comments about Apple 85W Magsafe 2 Power Adapter:

          I picked this up to use as a spare in my laptop bag... I'm carrying a 13" MacBook Pro at the moment but got this charger because it will also work with the 15" model.

          Nothing negative to say really except the new MagSafe connector does not seem as strong as the old one but that may be by design. I'm not usually square dancing around my laptop so I've never unplugged it by tripping on the cord but I have had this one fall out accidentally. Not a big issue though.

              Comments about Apple 85W Magsafe 2 Power Adapter:

              Had to buy a replacement for my original after a year and a half because the cord had turned yellow and started to crack near the connector. It was already out of warranty so Apple wouldn't replace it. Be careful when unplugging the magsafe connector, do not stress the cable.

                      This is going to stay in the home office and the one with the laptop will be there for travel. It's always nice to have two and not be messing around plugging and unplugging.
