The latest MacBook has introduced a lot of things, including a USB-C charging port, but it’s said goodbye to the MagSafe design for that essential port too.
Having the MagSafe charging cable, means not having to worry about stepping on the cable or pulling it out of the computer itself while it’s charging. This is because the cable would simply break away without damaging the computer. However, the new 12-inch MacBook doesn’t have this feature.
Luckily though, at CES 2016, Griffin Technology has just introduced its BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable. It brings back a magnetic breakaway power cable to USB-C compatible laptops, keeping them safe from drops and damage. The patented quick-release magnetic connector plugs into a laptop’s USB-C port and safely disconnects from the rest of the cable when put under stress or strain from incidents like tripping over the power cord. The streamlined magnetic connector is only 12.8 mm deep so it can stay plugged into a laptop’s USB-C port when not in use. BreakSafe’s included 6′ cable easily connects with the USB-C charger that comes with laptops
