If you have a MacBook [Air/Pro], you know that charger tip it’s detachable, right? Until a few years ago, we even received an extension cable in the box that could be plugged in there – yes, Apple already has a certain custom of removing things from boxes of its products …
This connector is very practical because you can use the same charger in different countries, for example. In the United States, Apple sells a World Travel Adapter Kit for $ 30 that includes seven different plugs, including the American standard and the Brazilian / European standard.
But anyway, I digress. The cool thing here is that this connector uses an industry standard interface (IEC) called C7 / C8, and for that reason it is possible to use the Apple plug in other electronic devices such as battery chargers for DSLR cameras, for example.
