Purchased 3 Defective Apple 85w MagSafe Adapters in five months. In January 2013 I purchased an Apple 85w MagSafe Adapter for my MacBook Pro after my original one died after two year.
Rather than paying Apple overpriced amount for a replacement, I found Pronto Charger on line. I purchased one in January and had gotten two more replacements after the first one started to fray around the neck of the adapter. I just got another less than 2 weeks ago and it died on me yesterday.
I never had this problem with any manufacturer before. It's amazing and frustrating.
Monetary Loss: $38.
