Apple MagSafe ... experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.
When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.
Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.
This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

Introduced in early 2006, Apple's 'Magsafe' is a power adapter with a unique design. As the DC connecter attaches to the computer body by magnetism alone, any excess strain on the cable will break the connection and pull it free from its socket. Therefore, tripping over the cable will result in it releasing from the computer body without the computer itself being pulled with it. A variation of the Magsafe system was actually in development way back in 2001 by 'Underwriters Laboratories', who were attempting to make deep fat fryers safer. As ingenious as this system might sound, Apple's product has design flaws elsewhere in its construction which ... Read the complete review

You'd think that it was impossible for those guys at Apple to redesign something as simple as a laptop power cable, but they've managed it. And they've done it very well indeed. The wonderful thing about charger 2.0 is that the head of the connector is magnetic, so you're not actually 'plugging' anything into your computer at all. This may not seem all that important or impressive to some, but when you think about it, it's a brilliant idea. If you were running your laptop with a standard power adaptor and you pulled on the cable it could do damage to the computer (pulling it off the surface) or damage to the connectors surrounding the cable. Because this ... Read the complete review

I have had my MacBook for around 9 months now and obviously this charger comes as standard. And like all apple products it has a certain aspect that just makes it that much better than every other product like it. For the Apple MagSafe charger this aspect is the charging jack itself. Instead of having a regular design that plugs quite far into the laptop to connect, this instead has a magnet on the end and a very short plug in. Not only does this mean that it is much easier to attach than regular chargers but it is also a very effective safety device. By this I mean that, for instance say that the laptop is on charge whilst sitting on a table and the wire is ... Read the complete review

When it comes to accessories it seems that Apple Mac appear to have most gadgets wrapped up; headphone accessories, bags, even airline laptop cables; it would seem that Apple do more for consumers in terms of adding cost optional accessories for every computer in their range. In the case of the latest iBook/MacBook product range of Apple Mac laptops, there are a few products which are supposed to help the consumer feel part of what Apple could term as the "compact," input whilst the cool white colour seems to affect everything with the Apple Mac label on it, generally. The MagSafe power adaptor for Mac Books is a simple power battery charger ... Read the complete review

Like most apple products the Macbook White charger is sleek, shiny and a cute accessory. It comes with an extension cord so you can either have a long cable, approx 2 meters long or you can have the shorter length cable which is perfect if you are sat at your desk and don't move around with the Macbook. The chargers connector is magnetic and has a small LED light, this means that the charger stays connected and doesn't drop out ( unless you accidentally tug the wire or trip over it or move the laptop a bit too far then it disconnects) It also allows you to see the status of the battery life whilst charging without having to look on screen. If the light is orange/red it .. Read the complete review
