This review is from: 85W AC Power Adapter Charger for MacBook Pro A1151 A1172 A1189 A1211 A1278 A1281 A1286 A1222 A1343 (Electronics)
Suppose you have a 15" or larger MacBook Pro (that requires the 85 Watt charger), and your power supply kicked off. You *could* go and get one just like it for an obscene amount of money, or you could get this deal and keep your greenbacks. What's the difference? For starters, the shape- this is not the Apple square with flip up bits for cord rolling. Oh, the horror! It's also not quite a match where the the magsafe plug is concerned. It's along the lines of the "L" shape connector that Apple went to and then left (in lieu of the "T" shape). The LED isn't exactly the same as how it is with the Apple power in that the amber/green part works, but it's not as immediate, and will glow even when unplugged at times. Are any of these show-stoppers? Not to me. The charging seems to be about as rapid as it was with the Apple branded one. I haven't hooked this up to a VOM, but I have no reason to think it's over or under charging, and it doesn't get hot to the touch. I've been using it for a week or two now, and no complaints- except for how much fatter my wallet is as a result...
