Product Description

The 45-Watt MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook Air features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and 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 will light; an amber light lets you know that your portable 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 users an even easier and more compact way to travel.Redesigned specifically for MacBook Air, the adapter is the perfect traveling companion. It 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 only with MacBook Air.

It works perfectly in my MacBook Air.

This is the little piece of plastic that has the two prongs to plug into the wall.

Instead, do the smart thing and order from somebody else - anybody else.

There are two listings for this product in Amazon. Do yourself a favor and order from the OTHER ONE that says "retail packaging". I ordered from that one last year and the product I received was exactly as I expected. I didn't write a review then, and I'm regretting that decision now because if I had, I would have reminded myself of my good customer experience instead of trying to save a few dollars and ultimately having to write a bad review on Amazon.

There are three parts to the MagSafe Power Adapter - 1) The main body of the adapter, 2) the two-prong insert that attaches to the main body and 3) the three-prong extension cord that attaches to the main body.

Last year under the OTHER seller when I ordered this item, I received all three parts exactly as described.

This year, using THIS seller, I ordered two adapters. You would think that would mean that I would received six parts, but that was not the case. Out of two orders I only had a total of three parts! I received two main adapters (one of which looked used), only ONE two-prong insert and ZERO three prong extension cords.

So, to reiterate my point - DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT FROM THIS SELLER unless you want to be disappointed when you open your package. Instead, do the smart thing and order from somebody else - anybody else.

Two things bothered me about this. I expected a new product and this is either refurbished or just used. It has scratches and evidence of use. Also it does not include the cord. I think this should be made clear in the description. I'd rather have paid the extra and gotten one from Apple..brand new with the cord.

I had to return this to the local Apple store after a year of use as the cord cracked near it's entrance to the brick. They did give me a new one without charge and said that this has happened a lot. If you travel a lot do not wind it around the wings that fold out as you will wear out the cord at the insertion.

They only include the power adapter but THEY DO NOT INCLUDE the 3-pronged extension cord adapter that is supposed to come with this product.

I bought this to replace my old adapter. The old one had fallen apart on the piece magnetic piece that connects to the computer. I heard that ALL the adapters break at some point under one and a half years. Apple must sure be making a killing on these since they are friggin $80! So far this new one has held up and I hope I won't have to replace it in the near future again. We'll see.

The item we received had scratches and a warning label that had many Chinese characters on it. Seems to work OK. Not sure it is a genuine Apple product, however.
