Replacing the AC power adapter cord for your Macbook MagSafe can be expensive. No matter how well you take care of your laptop, eventually, the AC power adapter will wear out. Without that adapter, there is no way to keep your computer charged and ready to use. Luckily, there are several low-cost alternatives that work as well as the original.
These 60 watt MagSafe power adapter options come with different skill-level requirements, so make sure you choose a product that fits your needs. For example, the Meco 60W AC Power Adapter Repair Cord uses an “L” connector. The end is plastic, rather than aluminum, and is about an inch shorter than the original cord. This is a repair solution. You need the mechanical know-how and skills to open up the Apple power brick and then solder two wires together.
For an easier option, Jacobsparts features a 60W AC Power Charger for an Apple Macbook that comes with a MagSafe connector on the laptop side. It looks like a standard laptop charger. The benefit to using this power cord is the ability to use any standard 2-prong power cable to provide extra cable length, if needed. It recharges your laptop quickly and doesn’t overheat.
Another highly affordable 60 watt Magsafe power adapter is made by GooDGo. This premium AC adapter features a magnetic DC connector to help you plug in your system quickly and easily. An amber LED light lets you know that your computer is charging properly and will turn green once the computer is fully charged. This duck-head adapter comes with two options for charging. There is an AC wall adapter, which is portable, and a lengthy AC cord.
For fun, there is also a quirky-looking Clip-On Cord Wrap for your Apple MagSafe power adapter. Besides keeping your cords wrapped up when not using them, your cord stays cooler while charging. For the 60 watt MagSafe power adapter user, this PowerCurl is a must-have as it solves the major design flaws that can interfere with your satisfaction and enjoyment.
