Apple’s brand new MacBook Pro 2016 models feature powerful internal components and a sleek new design that is simply gorgeous. Of course, to build that gorgeous design, Apple had to ditch things that people really needed like standard USB ports and the SD card reader. On top of that, Apple got rid of everyone’s favorite power connector, the MagSafe port, which was a magnetic connector that was easy to plug in and prevented accidents from happening by detaching in the event that someone stepped on the power cord.
Well guess what: If you have a new MacBook Pro 2016 or you’re planning to get one, the Griffin BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Breakaway Power Cable connects to the MacBook Pro’s USB Type-C port and brings MagSafe back.
