Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adaptor Review for Macbook and 13″ Macbook pro

All of Apple’s MagSafe adapters used to charge MacBooks makes it possible for the connector to instantly detach from the computer when the cable is under tension. The MagSafe technology is highly beneficial to protect your MacBook from falling from a height if the cable tangles to your foot or accidentally pulled.

The 60 watts adapter from Apple also incorporates the MagSafe technology. The DC connector is magnetic that ensures that the power cable disconnects if the cable is under strain. It not only prevents the laptop from falling down from the resting perch, but also prevents the cable from weakening or fraying over time.

Design

The design is phenomenal when it comes to both looks and functionality. The adapter is perfect for someone who travels quite often. The Apple MagSafe 60W Power Adapter is certainly great for portability and the build quality is unparalleled.

The cord can be wound around the adapter neatly and will take only less space in your baggage. Certainly the best travel companion if you are looking for a replacement adapter for your MacBook.

Compatibility

The 60W MagSafe Adapter is compatible with the MacBook Pro 13 inch and the MacBook, which is the predecessor of the MacBook Pros. It is good to see that, Apple Inc. strives to provide accessories with unmatchable technology even for the MacBook, which they don’t ship anymore.

Although this adapter is made specifically for the 13″ Pro and the original MacBook, you can use this adapter as a replacement for the 85W adapter for the 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro. It has been confirmed by a lot of users on the Apple’s Official Support forum. The only difference that one can notice is that, when used to charge the 15 inch and 17 inch MacBook Pro, charging can be quite slow. However, one doesn’t have to worry about any internal damage.

Functionality

Since the connector is magnetic, it is easy to hook up the adapter to the laptop even if you are using the laptop in complete darkness. Once the connection is secure, the LED in the DC connector will glow. You could see 2 different LED colors that notify two different statuses. If the LED glows amber, it means the battery is charging. When the battery is fully charged the LED will be green.

The AC cord provided can help you increase the maximum length of the cord when you are using it in your home. On the other hand, AC wall adapter (also provided) can work well when you travel.
The adapter charges the battery of the 13-inch MacBook and MacBook when the laptop is turned off, in sleep mode or when the laptop is on. You can even remove the battery from the laptop and power the MacBook directly (like a desktop) using this adapter.
