Snapnator: Your New Solution for MagSafe on USB-C Devices, Including Newer MacBooks Pro

As the 12-inch MacBook was announced with just one USB-C port, technology lovers MagSafe They were upset and not for less. Soon, there were several alternative solutions like Griffin's BreakSafe, which is really a hand on the wheel.

After the last special event where the new MacBooks Pro was announced with four Thunderbolt 3 ports and no MagSafe, you might think the same adapter would do, right? Unfortunately, wrong. On the company's own website, the new 15 ? MBP is not listed and the reason why it requires a higher power (87W) than the adapter can deliver (60W).

But, as people waste no time, Kickstarter has already come up with a solution that is not only compatible with all new MBPs but also with any other device that connects via USB-C: Snapnator.


Snapnator consists of two small adapters with one USB-C tip and the other, magnetic. Just plug one end into your MacBook and the other obviously into its power cord. On the product description page, people claim to be able to deliver up to 100W of power, which is enough to charge all MacBooks, including the latest Pros.

The most interesting thing about this adapter is that it can be connected not only to Apple notebooks but also to Chromebooks, smartphones or any other device that uses USB-C as charging technology.

The Kickstarter project needed $ 25,000 and has already exceeded $ 50,000 raised, with over 1,250 supporters. Prices start at $ 19 to receive only the adapter and larger contributions even offer other USB-A to USB-C converters, among others. If you are interested, you can contribute by December 27th, and you are scheduled to submit it to January 2017.
