With the new MacBook Pro’s being introduced just a few weeks ago, it is evident that Apple is on a killing spree when it comes to ports. First, the headphone jack was removed from the iPhone 7 and now USB Type-A, the SD card slot, and MagSafe have all been terminated from the latest MacBook lineup. While I can live with some of the kills Apple is making, losing MagSafe was by far the saddest thing I had to witness in that last Keynote. While there are some solutions to the problem of no MagSafe, namely the Griffin BreakSafe cable, the Snapnator is the latest way to bring back your beloved charging method (sort of).
While the Griffin cable is certainly a good cable, I did find that the design was larger than I would have liked. It jutted out just a bit too much for my taste and I was afraid that it could get snapped off easily. The Snapnator seems to be much slimmer and the better part is you can use your own USB cables with it, the Griffin only allows you to use theirs. Snapnator is currently on Kickstarter and has already raised $108,000USD of their $25,000USD goal with over 2,800 backers and 48 days to go. That’s pretty impressive and shows that Apple made yet another idiotic move in removing the MagSafe charging method.
Our adapter is the sleekest and smallest magnetic adapter ever made. Because our adapter works for USB type C, it will work for all your USB type C devices. Now magnetic power connectors are available for PC devices and even many phones.
Kickstarter backers get an additional 6 months of warranty beyond the standard 12 month warranty available to post-Kickstarter buyers. Get yours now.
This is certainly the slimmest adapter of this type I have seen yet and I’ll likely be backing this project myself since I’ll be needing a solution very soon.
