Apple 60W Magsafe 2 Adapter $49 (Was $89) + Delivery (Free C&C) @ The Good Guys

450

Use an extra adapter for home or work. The Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter is made specifically for your MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display. Its held in place magnetically, so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your notebook stays put safely.

    These are absolute rubbish quality (sheds the rubber sheathing in no time) but sure beats paying $100+ from Apple :/

    •  

      Dunno about that, but I'd save the $49
      by running the power cable Behind a Desk
      where big feet can't knock it out at all

        The wall end is fine, ours had the insulation peel off all around the Magsafe end. Just wrapped it in tape and it works mostly but pretty crap quality for the prices Apple ask.

          I've got the 85W Magsafe 2 and it's 5.5 years old, travels around with me all the time, no sign of any stripping of the rubber coating yet!

            @nafe: Mine is similar, no issues after nearly 5 years. I don’t know what people do to them?

              @j05h: I take very good care of my electronics and these break so damn easily it's not even funny.

              I make them last after they are frayed but still, have no problem with any of my other cords, it was always either Iphone cords or Macbook cords.

              Praise the lord for USB-C stopping Apples rip off proprietary chargers.

            @nafe: My 60W Magsafe 2 got stripped badly on the computer end as well after about 4 years using. I didn't take particular care of it, definitely I was roughing it up. I guess there's quality difference there.

          My 10-year original Magsafe 85W charger's cord is still in-tact somehow - same with my 4-year old Magsafe 2 60W…

          The same thing happened for mine and most people I know of. I left it permanently at office, wire on the desk behind monitor, and it peeled after less than 2 years. My solution was selling the damn laptop, haha. Pretty much all Apple cables are rubbish (Macbook charger, Iphone charger, Earpod etc. all peel after around 2 years).

        •  

          I have always wondered why Apple don't just fix this? I've never had to use a MagSafe charger thankfully but basically everyone I know has this issue.
          It can't be that hard to wrap a cable properly can it?

            You don't become a trillion dollar company by cutting off your revenue streams of additional charger sales..

            •  

              @cwongtech: I understand completely. But it's shameless considering the "quality" premium they charge. I guess if it was a deal breaker for people they would vote with their wallets, so it clearly wasn't..

              @cwongtech: Exactly, people fail to realise their products are carefully engineered to fail outside of warranty. A lot of effort goes into making these things shit, but good enough so consumers will buy expensive replacements out of their own pockets. :D

      Never had a problem with mine in many years of service. Sounds like you don’t care for your stuff.

    Bad product but good price

  •  

    Itll have a year warranty… use it. Enough peeps claim, apple will do something about it.

    Maybe.

    •  

      Or return it under your consumer rights, specifically: "it is substantially unfit for its common purpose and can’t easily be fixed within a reasonable time".

      Enough peeps claim, apple will do something about it.

      They moved on to USB-C.

  •  

    Can this be used in place of an 85W for a Macbook Pro?

    It would charge slower i'm guessing but mine is missing the rubber coating now after years of use.

    EDIT: NVM my current charger is a 60w one anyway

      yes, I have 4 different wattage chargers of the MagSafe 2 accumulated from different MacBooks and I can 100% tell you that the smaller ones work, just takes longer time.

  •  

    I heard that if your mac cable is frayed, taking it to an apple store they can exchange you for a new one for free?

      As long as it’s not from accidental damage, and is within warranty of a consumer law period (generally 36 months for Mac but as consumer law isn’t a set timeframe it can be argued it should be longer).

    •  

      I tried to do this and they refused to do it

      Tried to sell me a new one for $120 but I've made the frayed one last the next 1 and a half years so far.

      Will finally buy a new one now

      •  

        Just take it in and try again - maybe dependent on the sale person. We exchanged ours at the Chatswood branch.

        •  

          Its super old now and I just purchased this one for $49

          My current charger is missing the rubber a good 20cm down the wire now, still works though.

        •  

          I assume it has to be within the warranty, right? Does anyone know how long the warranty period is exactly? Three years?

        •  

          Always do it through AppleCare (Apple's phone support centre). Not through the store.

    •  

      They replaced mine after no signs of wear and stopped working. I think might have been like 2 drops of water (my bag was damp from the rain but certainly not soaking)…

      Pretty odd experience but I went right before closing time on a weekend. They just went out the back and gave me new one and said fill out details on the iPad and didn't even look at it.

    •  

      My wife brought ours in and they changed it for free - no questions asked. She was ready to pay for a new one.

    •  

      Frayed cable, yes (in Australia) - not willingly, but they will.

      However, damage to the connector(s) (i.e. minor hairline crack) is not covered. Apple basically told me it was damaged by user so they won't provide warranty.

      Overseas - in some countries, Apple stores flat out tell you cables and power adapters are NOT covered by warranty. The cables were cheaper at an overseas Apple store so I thought I get one, the staff reminded me there is zero warranty on cables.

    Are we really going to get the US / Japan plug as shown in the picture?

    I'm using my 6 year old Magsafe 2 60W (and Late 2013 Retina Macbook Pro 13"), pretty much in perfect condition. I had no idea it was a thing that these break, but mine has been awesome.

  •  

    Just bought one from Apple last week :(

    •  

      Try and return it? I think you have 14 days for change of mind

      •  

        14 day, change of mind for used and un-used items as long as there is no damage for items purchased through Apple Retail stores, Apple.com, and Apple Telesales.

        Even if you don't have the receipt they can look it up via your card (unless you paid by cash and didn't leave any details).

  •  

    It's been over a week and still haven't received this, anyone else received theirs?

    •  

      I just received a shipping notification (~4pm WST).

        Mine was shipped the day after by TGG Port Macquarie and I’m in Adelaide so they must be really digging into the last or store stock

  •  

    Still no delivery details, ordered over 2 weeks ago now…

  •  

    Mine was delivered today :)

  •  

    Mine was sent out on the 25th of Oct, still haven't received it :(.
