When you trip over an Apple MagSafe cable, it comes out of the port rather than dragging your laptop onto the floor. The Griffin BreakSafe does the same for USB-C, and 9to5Toys Specials has it now for $35 shipped.

The BreakSafe looks like a regular cable, except the USB-C plug has a seam. In normal use, magnets hold the connector together. But when the inevitable trip happens, the main cable comes away from the connector. This means you don’t need to worry about damaging your laptop, and you can move quickly once the battery has charged. The magnetic connector can stay in the port permanently, as it is securely embedded 12.8mm deep in the port. The cable works with the USB-C charger supplied with your Macbook, offering a generous six-foot reach. Data transfers and video are not supported, but it does carry the full 60 watts.

Grab the BreakSafe now to save 12% on the MSRP with free shipping.
