Griffin’s BreakSafe adapter brings MagSafe to MacBook’s USB-C port for $20 Prime shipped

One of Apple’s most beloved features of its MacBooks is its proprietary magnetic charging cable known as MagSafe. That, however, was removed on the 2015 and 2016 12-inch MacBook models in place of a single USB-C port. The good news is you can add back a magnetic charging connector by using Griffin’s BreakSafe cable adapter for USB-C, currently on sale (review). Today the product goes to its lowest price yet, with a 50% discount on the usual retail price bringing it down to just $20 shipped.

Amazon has the Griffin BreakSafe for 50% off ($20 shipped) for Prime members or orders over $50.

Update 12/15 1:52PM: Groupon has 2 MagSafe Power Adapters for MacBook Air or MacBook Pro starting at only $29.99 shipped

Be prepared for wear and tear — and the next time you leave your charger at home — by picking up a MagSafe 2 Power Adapter from 9to5Toys Specials for just $40 shipped. It comes in plastic bag packaging. (Note: Groupon has a 60W MagSafe for $33.99)

Apple’s power adapter is both beautiful and practical, with a magnetic DC connector that sticks for charging, but can be pulled out to save your laptop. But those of us who have owned Macbooks before will be aware that the MagSafe cable can fray with everyday abuse. Version 2 has a strong join between the cable and the connector — traditionally a weak spot — and it is solidly built elsewhere. The MagSafe 2 is capable of running your Macbook even with a dead battery, and as with all Apple adapters, the cable reel keeps things tidy.

The current deal takes 49% off the 45W version of the MagSafe 2 (for Macbook Air) with free shipping. 60W and 85W versions of the MagSafe 2 Power Adapter are also available.

Following Apple’s latest product announcement today, we are beginning to see companies release charging and storage solutions for the Apple Watch. Popular accessory maker Griffin Technology has revealed its WatchStand, which provides an angled charging platform for the watch and a base for displaying an iPhone. This is the first combination Watch and iPhone accessory that we’ve seen, although it’s unlikely to be the last.
