The Quick-release Magnetic Connector (patent-pending) Plugs Into Your Laptop's Usb-c Port And Safely Disconnects From The Rest Of The Cable When Under Stress Or Strain, Like Tripping Over The Power Cord. The Streamlined Magnetic Connector Is Only 12.8 Mm Deep So You Can Leave It Plugged Into Your Laptop's Usb-c Port When Not In Use. Use Breaksafe's Included 6' Usb-c Cable With The Usb-c Charger That Came With Your Laptop.

  • Not for the 15" MacBook Pro
    Reviewed by Mike - April 2, 2017

    I placed an order for this but cancelled after reading on Griffin's website that this cable is NOT FOR THE 15" MacBook Pros. I was very excited to find a MagSafe alternative but this cable can only handle power at up to 60 watts. The 15" charger is an 87 watt charger, so it is not compatible. Though it says it is rated to 60 watts, Griffin has on its website that it will work fine with the 13" MacBook Pro even though it comes with a 61 watt charger. Hope this helped save someone some time and energy! I would recommend this for 12" MacBook and 13" MacBook Pro users. Hoping Griffin comes out with one for the 15" Pro soon!

  • Safer than standard usb-c cable
    Verified BuyerReviewed by HonestReview - July 7, 2017

    This is a good improvement over a standard usb-c charger cable. Providing some protection from dragging your device off the desk. Has saved me several times when I tripped on the cable, works as intended the magnetic connection separates rather than dragging the laptop to the floor. Would be 5 stars but reminds me of the last generation Apple Magsafe chargers which separate at the slightest bump. Only time this was an issue was when I was using it on my couch. I still recommend this product, as it will save your laptop.

  • Great product!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Z28Guy - March 4, 2017

    Gives your new MacBook, MacBook Pro or Air (2016 with thunderbolt ports) MagSafe functionality that came on the older MacBooks and Pros. The first day I bought it, I accidentally kicked the cord and the brake-safe technology worked perfectly. The cord broke cleanly at the magnetic connection and saved my new MacBook Pro from certain death. This might be some of the best money you will ever spend on your Apple laptop. (The Wintel world wishes they had this technology for their laptops). Siskel and Ebert two thumbs up!!!!
