    Using a 2015 13" MBP with what I believe is a 60w MagSafe 2 connector. I see the Apple adapters are around $80. Are there any reliable/safe cheaper options?

    I'd like a second one for flexibility.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    If you want a reliable/safe one you should get the official one. You can probably save a few dollars getting an off-brand one, but there's never going to be a guarantee of absolute certainty like when using an official charger (Worst case if the charger is bad from Apple, they have no excuse but to blame themselves).

    Just bite the bullet and pay 80 bucks, don't know why you wanna cheap out on a charger for your 1500+ laptop

    I use one that is $30+ on Amazon. I forget the brand, but it is bulky like and old laptop power supply. Since I only leave it under my desk, I have no issues with the size. It runs very cool and does not have the heating issues that some of the compact 3rd party ones that look like Apple's do.
