5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent charger, well made and works properly 20 Jun 2012
Size Name:85W In-Car Charger|Verified Purchase
I received my charger at the Braunston Post Office today, as I am living on our narrowboat for about six months. It works really well, and plugs into the car charger socket we bought from the chandlers the day before. It was getting really annoying and inefficient to have to run the inverter just to power the MacBook Pro 15", draining the domestic batteries and then consequently having to run the engine longer than needed, as the inverter drains a lot more power because of its size and the fan in it.

What is really good about the item is that it appears to be well made, has a power light when plugged into the socket, and has a green light on the adapter. It also has a very neat magsafe plug, with a light to show whether the computer is charging, or finished charging, just like the original unit. It is nicely designed as well, white, and goes nicely with the Macbook.

I have used it this afternoon, and it appears to be working really well and as it should. Very happy with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality control 12 July 2013
Size Name:Slim AC Adapter L-Shape|Verified Purchase
I've ordered two of these so far. The first failed within 24 hours - compeltely dead after that. Returned it to Amazon and ordered another. That failed in 20 minutes. Clearly there is either something wrong with the design, the manufacturing process and or the quality control. Shame because its a nice looking product and looks well made from the outside.

I've now ordered a conventional shape and size charger for £19.99 (iClever Replacement 85W New Version Magsafe Adapter/Charger Power Supply with L-shape pin for Apple MacBook A1222 A1290 A1172 [18.5V 4.6A Version] andthis arrived in 24 hours and has so far worked fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value as long as it works 24 Mar 2013
Size Name:Slim AC Adapter L-Shape|Verified Purchase
I ordered this as an extra PSU for work, the first one arrived but stopped working after only one day - despite being magnetic, the jack seemed to stop making a proper connection. Returning it was straightforward, and I ordered a second one, which so far appears to be working well. It has the green/orange charging light on the jack, and the additional USB port is handy for charging a phone at the same time. I haven't tried charging the laptop and phone from empty at the same time, so can't say yet whether there is enough power to do both. Overall it seems well built and looks neat.

3.0 out of 5 stars No good for radio operation 27 May 2013
By G Smart
Size Name:85W In-Car Charger|Verified Purchase
I bought this charger for my Macbook Pro and it works perfectly. As the other reviews say... Feels quite solid and works very well in my car. The rest of this review will be unimportant to most people.

I bought this charger to use the Macbook out with my amateur radio equipment. However, there seems to be a lack in filtering with this device. It creates a lot of electrical noise, which completely wipes out most HF (shortwave) bands. Unfortunate.

1.0 out of 5 stars failed 10 April 2014
By agarrod
Size Name:85W In-Car Charger
Didn't work!!!! and I see this happened to another reviewer too.
Made in China, so say no more.
Its rated input is 11.5V to 16V DC which is correct, but its output is 16.5V DC & 3.65A which is far higher than the proper mains charger from Apple.
My guess is that this device is a con and should be avoided!!!!
