This crazy magsafe2 does it need glue to stay connected?

I have been using my new Air in the same ways as my old rev A Air and 08 unibody MBP. I have noticed that the magsafe2 is constantly falling off unlike my original magsafe. I am not hitting it, mainly lifting it from the foot stool to my lap on the couch with the cord running towards the floor. Almost every time it will fall off. I wish they had kept the old 90 design.

I think the older design, while more secure, was also more likely to not release if, for example, you tripped over the cord. They seem to have erred on the side of making it easier to disconnect versus easier to throw your laptop onto the floor.

I do notice that the Magsafe 2 connector comes off pretty easily, but I think that is by design.

Mine seems just as secure as the original MagSafe on my MB Pro 2008. If yours is unplugging without any friction on the cable, you may have a bad unit (computer or charger).

Mag-2 is worst design ever, keeping my 2010 Air untill they bring back the 'L' connector.

You may have a long, long wait...

Worst design ever, that's a bold statement. The new rMBPs are too thin for the original Magsafe design.

Yes. Yes, it needs glue. Superglue.

No issues here either. As Panch0 said, if yours easily falls of just by lifting it as you say, you may have a bad unit.
