For many years Apple has used MagSafe and MagSafe 2 power adapters for their laptops. MagSafe magnetically connects to the laptop’s case, so if someone would trip over the cord, the connector would safely breakaway without damaging the laptop or port. Although with Apple’s latest MacBook, MagSafe has been eliminated for a standard USB-C port. Griffin decided to bring back a magnetically connected cable by introducing BreakSafe USB-C Cable.
Griffin BreakSafe USB-C Cable feels like a quality cable and provides plenty of length at 6ft. The breakaway connection easily snaps in and out of place, and is only 12.8mm deep making it easy to always leave plugged into a laptop. BreakSafe USB-C cable is only designed to deliver 15W of power, so video and audio over this cable isn’t possible.
BreakSafe USB-C Cable will be available in April 2016 for $39.99.
