Took a risk buying this adapter, as I've only ever bought the Apple magsafes in the past. They've never lasted long, fraying on the cord and near the mag connector. However, this Wegwang cord, several weeks later, has proved itself as a perfectly compatible charging cord. I'm sold. Inexpensive and a perfect fit, my computer is charged up and hasn't had any issues whatsoever. Why pay more for Apple cords? I won't anymore nor will anyone else in my household. Great job, Wegwang. You've got a great product.
After my laptop charger cable wore out and frayed, I was loathe to purchase an expensive charger from Apple. After looking through many reviews, I wanted to find one that was decent quality without spending a lot of money. This charger works well. The power block doesn't get nearly as hot as my old Apple charger used to get, which is nice.
I deducted one star because the cable that runs from the wall to the power block becomes detached from the power block pretty easily. If you're not paying attention, you'll only realize it has become detached when your computer's low battery dialogue box pops up. The plug also sparks nearly every time I plug it in, whether directly into the wall or into a surge protector.
Edit: It has been a little over a month and this charger has stopped working. The part of the power cable that is right next to the magnetic part of the charger has to be broken on the inside, because I have to move it *just so* to get it to charge. I...
I forgot my charger, and needed a quick replacement in the meantime. This has worked perfectly. I'm giving it 4 stars only because it sparks everytime I connect it, and I'm scared of it. But, honestly for the price, it's definitely a no brainer!!!
