By Ron Cronovich TOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 18, 2012
The Macbook Airs and Pros introduced in June 2012 come with the new MagSafe 2 power adapter. It's identical to the original MagSafe adapter except the plug size is different.

If you have an original MagSafe power adapter that's the correct wattage for your new Macbook, get this tiny adapter and you'll be able to use it.

If you want an extra power adapter for your new Macbook and don't want to pay the full price of a new MagSafe 2 power adapter, you can probably find an original MagSafe power adapter for much less (just make sure it's the correct wattage for your computer), and then use it with this converter.

I've posted a few pictures in the "customer images" section, have a look if you like.

One word of caution: this adapter is so tiny, the size of my thumbnail, it could easily be lost. For now, I'm keeping it in its box in my laptop bag.

Another reviewer said that this adapter won't charge your computer while you're using it. That's not my experience. I have used this adapter many times since getting my 2012 Macbook Air, and it always charges the computer while I'm using it (unless the battery is already fully charged).

At the time I'm writing this, Amazon's price for this converter is higher than the suggested retail price. This is a brand new item, I've emailed Amazon and they will hopefully correct the price. But until then, don't pay more than the suggested retail price.

I bought a (gently used) 27" Thunderbolt display and a 15" Macbook Pro Retina last summer. I needed this converter to connect the two (the Thunderbolt display had the older style power connector for connecting to the older MacBook Pros and Macbook Airs). It's a huge convenience to be able to use the power supplied from the Thunderbolt display to connect to and charge the Macbook -- one less plug and I can keep the power adapter that came with the Macbook in my travel bag. Anyway for a month or two it worked great. But then I noticed that, while the Macbook was getting power, the battery was not getting charged. I looked into this for months and the only real answers I got were people speculating that the Thunderbolt didn't supply enough power for the MBP Retina. Or that the power cables coming out of the Thunderbolt display would have to be replaced. I put this off because I didn't want to deal with it (and went back to using the original MBP adapter) and then the Thunderbolt Display lapsed out of warranty. I kept trying to use the Thunderbolt display's power connector, just to see if it would magically start working again, and it just got worse - eventually supplying NO power to the MBP. Then on one of the Apple Support forums I read a post about someone with the same problem -- and she had solved it by replacing the converter. I was skeptical -- could this seemingly simple, $9.99 converter be the cause of the problem? I ordered a new one from Amazon three days ago and -- BOOM -- problem solved. The MBP is now getting full power from the Thunderbolt display. So I'm a little annoyed by the quality control, and that I had to buy the thing twice to get a working one, but then again $9.99 is a lot less than a costly Thunderbolt Display repair. Anyway, in case anyone else is having a similar problem, I thought I'd post my resolution here.

I wasn't wild about the old T-shape MagSafe connector so I was glad when the whole line went to the L-shape connector a few years ago. Now we're back to a T-shape connector with MagSafe 2. The converter is actually bigger than I expected, and I find that usually when I pull out the power cord, the cord disconnects from the converter rather than the converter disconnecting from the laptop. Just weird and fiddly, but necessary since Apple hasn't updated the Thunderbolt Display to MagSafe 2 yet.

A note on price: Amazon's "suggested retail price" of $29.99 is laughable; it's $9.99 from the Apple Store and has been from day one. It's actually more expensive on Amazon.

Apples converter is a 5 star product in my experience (I own 2 and I've used many at my work). It does what it's supposed to do. The pricing for all sellers in this listing, however, makes me dock the rating to 3 stars since it is so overpriced here.

Apple only charges about 60% of the currently listed price here, and there are lower-price listings elsewhere on Amazon. So look around carefully (on and off Amazon) before purchasing. Perhaps the price will come down over time, but for now this listing deserves 3 stars, at most.

For any haters who are going to say "this isn't a review of the product", you're wrong. The price -- and the reliability of the price -- is part of a consideration during a product purchase, so it darn well better be a consideration of any reputable review. It's also important to warn consumers about possible price gauging they may encounter if there's evidence that's happening with a particular product, as it is in this case.

This thing works great, and like all Apple products, great quality. Loses a star on principle.... I don't normally do such a thing with my star-score, but come on... They made extremely minor near-pointless changes JUST so you'd buy this thing if you have an older charger. They could have made the old charger work, even with the newer machines' smaller body, but no... Let's squeeze another $15 out of the customer in the name of superfluous design. And of course, it cost them 40 cents to make.

So that said, they lose a star for great solution for a problem that should have never existed in the first place. <3
