AC power adapter for MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air. Uses a self-aligning magnetic connector that disconnects safely when tugged. First-generation (2006-2012) MagSafe chargers have a slightly thicker, L-shaped connector. Available in 45 W, 60 W, and 85 W versions.

Anything fixable in a MagSafe power adapter? Mine quit- no power, wires have no obvious breaks.

Thanx. After my wife bought a new adapter (she is not a person who fixes anything), I did look at the computer end and discovered just what you suggest. Poked the little spring loaded contacts and they sprung like they are supposed to and all was well again. She now has a spare adapter.


Glad it worked for you. Sorry you jumped the gun and bought another one.
