I purchased this power adapter in November 2013. I didn't expect a long life, but figured for the price, I could purchase several and their combined life would be longer than the Apple product. The Apple adapters usually had problems with the strain reliefs on the output.
This adapter failed today. It became so hot that it was scary... I believe if we hadn't caught it, it could have caused a fire. The rubber strain relief fell off the adapter and the interior had a pungent odor of burnt electronics. Wow!
Usage - this was the proper replacement adapter for a computer that was in use for about 12 hrs per day.
