I needed a spare for my MacBook Air 13" and I got the 60W instead of the 45W to future proof it. If you're using the 60W or higher (80W) MagSafe 2, it is compatible on MacBook Air. However, if you're using this 60W MagSafe 2 on MacBook Pro Retina 15", it will not charge because there is not enough power. If you have a MacBook Air, I recommend you to get this over 45W because if you're getting a retina MacBook Pro 13" later, the 45W charger won't be able to juice that and the 45W charger will be practically useless.

Also, do not get this if you have a non-retina MacBook Pro, because it is not compatible with this.

This replaces the (same model) adapter that came with my 1 1/2 year old 13" Retina MBP. The cord on that one is fraying (literally falling off the ground shield underneath - in large pieces). I'd like to think the new one has fixed this problem but I don't have high expectations.

        I bought as backup, or spare. Dog chewed the original, although still usable. Keep on the shelf, just in case.

        Worthwhile investments --- just in case.

        This is the same power adapter that came with my MacBook Pro with 13" Retina Display. I keep one power supply in the living room, and the other one in my study. Very convenient.

          I keep a separate charger on my desk and one in my computer bag. This way I don't accidently leave home without one and I have a spare just in case.

          Apple neglected to include a power adapter when I purchased 7 Macbooks in May. I called B&H up - there's was no hassle or "prove that you didn't get it" questions - all they did was apologize and ask if I wanted it sent to the address that they had for me on file. B&H Photo rocks!

              Just wanted a spare magsafe2 connector for my Retina Macbook Pro so that i didn't have to unplug the one at my desk. I like the way that Apple does the plugs on their adapters where you can plug the brick into the wall or use a longer cord.
