The Griffin BreakSafe brings a MagSafe-like feature to the new MacBook

By , Apr 23, 2016

Oh, how familiar we all are with the horror of tripping over our MacBook charging cables, sending our computers crashing to the floor. Apple had provided a workaround with their MagSafe connector, but with the introduction of USB-C on the new MacBook, this gear-saving safety feature is annoyingly absent.

That’s where Griffin Technology steps in to save the day: their BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable delivers the cable-connector peace of mind you long for, now just $34.99 for a limited time.

The best thing about the BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable is that it does exactly what you’d expect it to. A small plug goes into your computer and connects to the rest of the cable via a quick-release connector magnet, which easily disconnects when it meets non-standard resistance. You’ll receive a 6ft. long cable with USB-C on the other end, which only sticks out 12.8 mm.

The BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable is designed for use with the new USB-C compatible MacBook and Chromebook Pixel laptops. You can leave the small dongle in your MacBook’s USB-C port at all times, which means you’re limited to only using Griffin’s USB-C cable in the port. But the added protection of the magnetic technology, and the peace of mind in knowing your laptop won’t go flying across the room anymore, is undoubtedly worth it.

Take 12% off the MSRP today and pick up your own BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable.

    This great and all but when is someone going to make the thing we really need which is a hub with mini display port and power pass through.

    I sure hope Apple doesn’t do away with the MagSafe connection for the MacBook Pro lineup!
