Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (for MacBook Pro with Retina display)

Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (for MacBook Pro with Retina display)

  • The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely. It also helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.
  • When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.
  • Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.
  • This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.
  • Compatible with MacBook Pro with Retina display

Use an extra adapter for home or work. The Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter is made specifically for your MacBook Pro with Retina display. It’s held in place magnetically, so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your notebook stays put safely.

    Back to the T-Bracket, for better or worse., July 1, 2012

    This review is from: Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (for MacBook Pro with Retina display) (Personal Computers)

    When Apple first introduced the Magsafe Adapter, they had a t-shape. The thinking was, if you accidentally tripped they would come out easily without taking your laptop with them. They eventually switched to an L-Shape, which didn’t come out as easily, but was much more flush. For the magsafe 2, they have gone with a thinner design, but have gone back to the t-shape. Here are the advantages and disadvantages I’ve found.

    Advantages:
    – Much easier to come out than the L-shape (good for clumsy people like me that sometimes trip over cords, plus I do a lot of work in my universities library, where people are shuffling around desks.
    – It’s uniform. In some cases, the L-shape could only easily be placed in a certain direction. Often this direction was toward the user (inconvenient and poor planning on the designer of these case’s part). With the t-shape, it it removes this inconsistency and makes placement universal.
    – No more USB peripheral getting stuck. In magsafe 1, the size allowed for usb devices to accidentally get placed in the magsafe port. The thinner design prevents this.

    Disadvantages:
    – Doesn’t work with older devices. You can’t use this magsafe 2 power supply with any magsafe 1 laptops. You can pay $10 and use magsafe 1 power supplies with magsafe 2 laptops, but the reverse will not work.
    – The T-design isn’t flush. The magsafe 1 l-shape is, while thicker, a much more “sexy” looking connection. This unfortunately adds about half and inch of required space to the left side of your plugged in apple.

    Overall:
    Hopefully one day they’ll make an l-shape magsafe 2 adapter. HOwever, there is nothing physically wrong with this device, it’s just not as flush as I’d like. However, function beats form every time, and I haven’t found a function that this design fails at, besides conserving space.

    Best Price for Genuine Apple Adapter is through Amazon, August 27, 2012

    As you might be thinking too, I also looked around and considered buying from eBay or a used adapter as my spare for my MacBook Pro Retina 15″… So if you do your research you know that there are a lot of fakes out there and imitations that are sub-par in quality and could damage your $2500 laptop or worse, cause an electric fire and burn down your house… So I decided to get a genuine Apple one. Amazon right now has it cheaper than the Apple Store, at $73.99 (versus $79.99), so it’s a no-brainer, being a Prime member, to order through Amazon for the 2-Day shipping and it came quickly. Sales tax in NY is unavoidable, and so my final cost was just a hair above $80 all told.

    I am sorry to have to leave a one star review for this item. It worked great for two months, but then failed. At the same time my computer was damaged.

    I bought this Power Adapter for $79 plus a $10 Mag safe 1 to mag safe 2 adapter. About the time this power adapter died the the MBPr laptop developed some minor problems with the keyboard. I took the computer into the Apple Store to get it repaired. They asked me if I had been using a two pronged plug in the wall because the problem I had was associated with adapters that used two pronged instead of three pronged plugs. I told them I had used a three pronged plug and they covered the cost of the repair. I did not think to mention I was using a 3rd party power adapter though. At least Apple did not make me pay for a $500 repair.
