2.0 out of 5 stars Worked for 6 months, then broke. Also, warranty was a lie., February 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this when I went out of town and forgot my charger. It arrived quickly, and worked well at first. About six months in, the trackpad on my Macbook Pro stopped working. It was going crazy, scrolling all over the place, and clicking without my touching it. When I was touching it, it wouldn't cooperate. I couldn't even use a mouse because the trackpad would be activating and working against the input from the mouse. It was so bad I couldn't even look up what was wrong using my computer. Luckily I have a smart phone and was able to determine that these adapters have a tendency to mess with your computer's battery, causing freak electrical currents to go into the trackpad and scramble its brains.

As soon as I went back to the other charger, my trackpad worked perfectly once again.

Bottom line: Don't buy this unless you only need a stopgap product to work for awhile. Don't expect this thing to work long term.

Also, as to the "one year warranty" that is in the title on some of these, don't believe it. I went to return the item only six months in, and "the window had closed"... one month after the purchase. I'm definitely reporting the seller to Amazon. Buyer beware.

EDIT: Amazon let me return it after I complained. I guess they're going to deal with the seller on their end. So at least there's that. Still, I can't in good conscience recommend this product.
