Top Customer Reviews
It's fake. *DO NOT BUY* See the end of this review. -- I had to return this for a refund.
Well, it's not exactly exactly exactly like the unit it's replacing, but it's close. Very very close. Close enough that, to my suspicious eye, this is OEM.
The similarities with my original power supply:
Apple logo of the exact size embossed into the plastic in an identical way
Small gray printing on two sides of the brick, formatted in the Apple style and with Apple part numbers and supplier info
The magsafe adapter looks well made and solid
The brick and magsafe were covered with the protective plastic sheeting that seems to be peculiar to Apple products -- it wraps around the brick and sticks to itself tidily, just like I remember from my original MacBook's packaging
High quality fit and finish all the way around, no fakery that I can see
Specifications on the brick printing are accurate to the requirements
The tabs work exactly the same, the wire winds up around them nice and tight, and the wire clip holds it all together well. Functionally identical as far as I can tell
The wire is a bit thinner
The little metal part of the magsafe connecter, the rectangle that contacts the computer, looks a little shallower
The labeling on the gray print is different: different manufacturer, etc. (I'm sure Apple uses various manufacturers, though, so this isn't a guarantee of non-OEM)
Biggest tell: There is NO UL LISTING on the adapter. UL listing is clearly marked on my original power supply. This is an American thing, though -- it could be that this is an actual OEM supply, but intended for Canada or some other market, so doesn't have the UL listing.
I'm posting a bunch of pictures of this replacement unit in detail, as well as comparing it with my old unit, so you can see for yourself.
I've been ripped off with fake "OEM" parts in the past. This does not feel like that. If it IS fake, it's a masterful job, and they deserve my money for going to this kind of effort. Especially if the internals are as well-imitated as the externals. :)
If something goes wrong, I'll edit this review accordingly.
UPDATE 1 MONTH LATER:
Welp, this one's a dud. It's now flashing from green to amber as it charges, and it only charges when the cable's connected from one direction -- wire facing the ports, the least convenient if I want to plug anything into the Displayport or USB.
So... final answer: fake. Do not buy.
Let me also say that i'm replacing my original power adapter that came with my macbook when I purchased it at an authorized Apple store (3 yrs ago). Now ON to the review!
When it came, it was shrink wrapped neatly and the product box was untouched(Shown in picture). It was like I personally bought it from the Apple store. When I opened it, the contents were neatly placed and everything was in order. It came with the adapter itself, the plug socket cable, and the Instruction booklet. When I compared the old and the new one, I noticed the newer one has smaller regulatory on it's side than the old one (included in the compere photo). I also noticed the "Safety Mark logo" has different numbers on the new one then the old one. The new on has the numbers "15" at the end of it. I concluded the new one was probably made this year than the old on that has an "11" at the end of it. The MagSafe tip is magnetic and when connected, the status light works.
In Conclusion, the product is working in good condition, and is functioning normally.
