    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 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.

                ok, i got the newer macbook air, and of course it has a different charger plug, so do i just throw away the old chargers? not with this handy adapter. fits perfectly on old macbook charger, and it's magnetic magsafe and holds beautifully. saved me about $ by not having to buy all new chargers for home work and cars.

                  Seems frustrating that Apple changed their power connector format, but luckily this relatively inexpensive piece connects old to new.

                  Works better than expected - strong magnet. Works well on my 2013 MacBook Pro. This is the actual apple conversation, not an imitation. The only downside, it's small, & you might loose it. I highly recommend!

                  Well made and not an absurd price.

                            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.

                              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.
