Did over £400 worth of damage to my Macbook Pro
on 31 March 2014
DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!. I saw many negative reviews and assumed it was just the "moaning minority" so I purchased one because there was no real alternative on the market. I also purchased from Apple the adaptor to enable the old magsafe to connect to the new Magsafe.
The first time I used it it worked fine. The second time, a couple of days later it became very hot and blew the fuse on my 12 volt supply. Subsequently I realised it had also permanently damaged my 2 month old MacBook Pro 13" (Retina display SSD) which is now awaiting repair. The cost would have been £400 although it appears that Applecare may cover the cost.
The listing has now been updated to state that the item does not work with the Retina display Macbook. This was NOT stated when I purchased in February.
