    I do, but I also remember frayed Magsafe ends, adapter recalls, and having zero good third-party replacement options. Magsafe power adapters were clever, beautiful, and waaaaay too fragile and expensive to replace.

    Bingo. I like being able to charge the current MBP on any of the ports w/ USB-C, but pretty much everything else about the charger is a drastic step back. No MagSafe. No light indicator. No flaps to allow it to wrap around the charger.

    I've never had a MagSafe-equipped Apple charger fail. And they could engineer the MBP to accept power both via MagSafe and USB-C.

    Almost everyone I know that had a Macbook went through at least one, and my wife’s slightly-frayed cable actually started smoking; there’s very good reason why Apple lost the class-action lawsuit over Magsafe chargers.
