Apple MacBook Pro users that were disappointed when Apple removed the magnetic charging ports from the latest MacBook Pro laptops may be interested in a new magnetic USB-C adapter which has been specifically designed for Apple laptops, and takes the form of the MagNeo.
The MagNeo magnetic USB-C adapter supports all devices that are equipped with USB-C connectors, including all Thunderbolt 3 devices. This includes the latest 2016 Macbook Pros both 13″ ad 15″ as well as USB-C Hubs and Docks, Google Pixel smartphones and more.
Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about the MagNeo MagSafe style magnetic USB-C adapter, which is now available to back with super earlybird pledges starting from just $19 and offers support for 4K Ultra HD video, data synchronisation and charging. Its creators explain a little more about the design and benefits of the MagNeo which supports both Apple and android devices.
MagNeo is by far the most compatible and usable USB-C magnetic connector out there. Its the first and only magnetic connector that does not only power, but data and video as well. Finally, your USB-C port can be used as intended, not just for charging.
MagNeo has 3X the functionality of other magnetic connectors, with the unique capability to provide all the USB-C signals required of new peripherals. Not only is the connector rated for up to 100W charging capacity, it also allows up to 5K video and Thunderbolt 3 speed data, all while maintaining USB-C reversible connector capability.
