  • Power adapter for 15-inch Macbook Pro?

    I'm looking for a Magsafe 85w A1222 power adapter with a magnetic connector (might as well have a Japanese plug) for my 15-inch (older) Macbook Pro. *gasp* I've just broken my old one so I'm desperately looking for a new one on the net. I haven't been able to find this model with a magnetic connector yet, seemed like they had it at amazon but according to the reviews it's actually a different model... I'm sure they have them in Apple stores but I would probably have to pay through the nose right. Any other model that works as well or can I find this model in Japan? I live in Kyoto but I figured I would order it online.

    I know you said you checked amazon but this model on Amazon UK does mention A1222

      Hmmm, the picture shows a different connector than the one I have, and I'm not sure it's the same model... I searched for this model on Amazon UK but couldn't find any mention of A1222, do you have a link? This one looks like the model I'm looking for, but it's 60w, so it should be meant for 13-inch Macbook Pros:

        The 45W model is only good for MacBook Airs, the 60W adapter will charge 13" MacBooks while the 85W model is good for both 15" and 17" MBPS.
        They all of course handle models with lesser power requirements.

        The older T-shaped magnetic adapter is the subject of recalls and replacements, whilst the slim tube-like end piece is the 'new standard.'

        Good price too from amazon....

          Saw this on CL just today, maybe it is the right kind for you.

          Kind regards

          EDIT: Just noticed your looking for an older adapter.

          Disregard

            You mean the adapter mr.sumo linked to? It would work on my old computer that I used the magnetic adapter on?
