to vote cold just because it's a Apple product really defeats the purpose of this community. Someone with a MacBook Pro simply can't but a £20 dell adaptor. 50% off anything Apple is beyond good and a heaven sent for people that NEED one of these.

Which store? National???

I got it in Woolwich extra. But my friend confirmed this at welling. I assume national. Worth calling I suggest

You should take a closer look at the cost of new branded power adapters before laughing. They ain't cheap. £60+ isn't unusual from what I have seen.

You can use this adapter with Macbooks and Macbook Airs despite what the OP says as long as they do not need the newer flatter MagSafe 2 connector.

All I know is a laptop charger is usually around 5 to 15 pounds. Not looking for Apple coated sheep ones. Just a lead to charge lappi

Branded Dell one i.e. pr just cheap sh*t from Amazon?

So I'm no apple fanboy as I have a mixture of kit but a genuine adapter is almost always better and certainly so vs a cheap copy, and secondly you need the right thing for your machine.

If you gave an appropriate Apple laptop this is a steal. I suspect the Wembley ones will scan at a reduced price so if you're around there I'd take a look

Err, except you are wrong. Ever bought a Dell laptop power supply? Circa £70.

You know very little then. Having seen what people are charging for new Lenovo, Sony etc chargers etc. If you want some cheap no-name copy, then I am sure you can pay that little from eBay or DX. I had a cheapie blow up on me recently and it took my laptop with it.

I've run an it business for around 10 years and those chappy eBay replacements have never caused problem. Their cheap as chips. Shame you had one blow up your friend.

It's almost like the guy who had his Samsung or his iPhone blow up on a plane..... There's always one.

How about letting people decide for themselves how they want to spend their money?

no you can't as the macbook air uses magsafe 2 now. Older versions yes you can use this adapter. As for macbook Pros, fits all of them other than the new retina model.

For anyone wondering, this will safely charge ANY MacBook or MacBook Pro with a MagSafe 1 port (e.g. machines that normally use a 45w or 60w charger). You just have to live with having a slightly larger/heavier power supply :-)

i need one my one i have now is on the way out thanks to the cat -_-

Hence my proviso

as long as they do not need the newer flatter MagSafe 2 connector.



which you chose to ignore. The older MagSafe fits my MacBook Air absolutely fine. For everyone else a £9 adapter from Apple still makes this a cheaper buy than a full price MagSafe 2 charger.

That may well 'lead' to you having a nasty little shock when you plug in your £5 charger into the wall socket. Are you a gambler?

Our MacBook's adaptor died today, saw your post here on HUKD, grabbed the last one from my local Tesco Extra, and now giving you lots of heat! Many thanks!

PS: This should be a lot hotter given the discount given (whether or not the adaptor is actually worth the RRP).

Same thing happened to me - I'm glad I found this on Friday, before I had to use my Macbook Pro again on monday for work.

I'm really happy I could help! These things are ridiculous when they're not on offer (I agree with the Apple haters here) - thankfully Tesco seem to be clearing their shelves of Apple products (maybe the range of laptops next - at 50% off ;))

Thank you OP, I had to buy one over the weekend at Apple for £65 but I found one at Tesco today.

Tesco are clearing out loads of electrical and electronics stuff - probably will re-range with better selling items. I got the DAB radios from another thread, and a magic mouse for my hackbook but then 'upgraded' to the magic trackpad at the price it was on here I figured I won't find cheaper.

I don't understand the way some people think on here. If it's a genuine item you have to look at the market price and decide if it's a deal. Whether you love or hate Apple the fact is there are people with Apple kit that will need spares or accessories for them and a deal is a deal. And you can switch that for any brand - some will only wish to put a genuine case on their Galaxy S4 or whatever. Personally I'm not a brand person *but* if it is something electronic, particularly on the power side vs say a USB hub or a microphone, I'd rather spend a bit more on the real thing.

I will also concur that a cheapie knock-off PSU is often a false economy having had one Dell laptop fried and two PSUs fail (bought at the same time I might add). I'll even pay more for a 2nd hand Dell one over a copy.

Expensive chargers..but with magnets!

Could someone give me the bar code number? I'm going to try my luck today at wembley

Just found this deal, went instore and it came through wrong on the till £16 each so I got two.

Thanks to the OP saved a fortune.
