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.

    Comments about Apple Magsafe to Magsafe 2 Converter:

    Does what it's supposed to do.. Fits firmly on both the magsafe power cord and the magsafe 2 port on my macbook pro. I bought this because all the shops locally only sell the magsafe power supply, not the magsafe 2. So next time my supply goes kaput, I'll have the adapter I need to buy the magsafe and power up that day.

        The Magsafe to Magsafe 2 converter works as advertised. I can use my old charger to charge my new Macbook Pro. It's also relatively cheap compared to other accessories made by Apple. The one thing I do not like is Apple's decision to change the Magsafe from an L shaped connector to a straight connector.

            Yeah, I'm a little miffed that Apple switched the MagSafe design to save a millimeter or two and STILL ships the antique Thunderbolt display with the old connector, which you will lose. Hence this product at B&H. It works and B&H has it cheaper than the big giant unnamed internet product place with the South American name.

              Comments about Apple Magsafe to Magsafe 2 Converter:

              Works as described. Now I don't have to buy a new MagSafe 2 power adapter to power my new MacBook Air; I can use an older 85 Watt MagSafe from a MacBook Pro.

              Word of advice: Even though this attaches magnetically, I used a piece of clear shipping tape to secure this little adapter to the MagSafe plug so that it wouldn't get knocked off and lost when not in use.

              Easily converts your old MagSafe PSU, including third-party units like AGPtek, for use with MagSafe2 computers. I use it with both an 11" Air and a 13" Retina Pro, and it works as advertised. Cheap enough ($ vs $ for a new PSU) to not worry about grabbing a new power supply if you still have an old one kicking around!

              I use this to connect an old Apple 85W power adapter to my new MBP, and it works well. The magnet is strong, so it stays on and is unlikely to be lost. It's a cheap and effective alternative to buying an extra new power adapter.

                    This little accessory is a must for those who just upgraded to a new macbook. I have five macbooks in my home. Three of them are older and two are new. We have chargers all over the house, in my office, bedroom, living room, family room, dining room, everywhere. We have these converters on all our older plugs so that we can use any macbook everywhere.

                      If you're like me and you have old Apple Magsafe chargers sitting around, this handy converter is an excellent way to use them with your shiny new Macbooks without letting them go to waste. It's magnetic, which means that it sticks to your laptop and to the old adapter as you would expect.One downside to be aware of is that it doesn't stick tightly to your laptop, which means that it can fall off when you disconnect the charger and stick the laptop in your bag. Just make a habit of disconnecting the converter every time and packing it safely into your bag and you'll be fine.

                              What can I say? I ordered a new Macbook Pro and had several old Magsafe adapters around. Rather than spend $80.00 on a new power supply, buy these adapters and save a ton of money! I've seen companies that advertise a holder/safety for the adapter, but so far I haven't seen the need for one.

                                  For the cheap price, I won't complain. It's easy and cheaper than buying new power supplies.
