It's not the same as having the builtin magsafe, but if you NEED safetly (eg: people tend to trip over your wire), it's wook.




I have the BreakSafe cable and it's not great. The magnet is much weaker, so it breaks the connection really easily.

Apple should make a MagSafe USB-C connector. I would buy that in a heartbeat.


Apple owns patents on Magsafe which won't run out for many years to come. So, the knockoffs are inferior. I really despise this move by Apple. Steve is rolling in his grave.

Yes but they've just switched to a universal USB-C charging standard. Jeeze it's like they can't win no matter what they do.


And no matter what they do, Jobs will be rolling in his grave. It's the law.


Well, they won't win with this crowd. The parent article shows they're still winning so they're obviously doing something right.


Note that it only supports 60 watts and they only list the MacBook and MBP 2016 13-inch as supported.


"wook"? I tried googling for it but all I found was "dirty hippy".


Seems to be a truncated version of worth a look.
