Revived my 2008 MacBook Pro,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I spent a long time trying to find a replacement power cable for my 2008 pre-unibody MacBook Pro. As many of you looking at this review already know, Apple stops supporting their products after 2 or 3 years so when my power cord died, I could no longer use my laptop. To make matters worse, most replacements I saw were priced at $70+. I bought one that stated it would work with my machine, but it didn't.
I was hesitant to give this one a try, but was tired of my MacBook Pro being a paperweight and the price was very modest. Pleased to say that it works like a charm. No problems charging my machine now. Sometimes it seems like it charges very slowly or just keeps the battery at the current level when actually using the laptop while plugged in, but it might be an issue with the charging indicator since this is non-OEM. Either way, it charges, the LED light works, so I'm a happy camper. I only wish the cable was longer. Can't stray too far from the outlet with this one.
