The development team behind the Magtop Pro explain a little more about the inspiration behind the MacBook magnetic adapter
We all remember Magsafe, the magnetic charging interface of old Apple MacBook, as a product that combined creativity and utility. However Apple decided to discontinue the magnetic charging function in the subsequent MacBook and replaced it with the Type-C interface.
Magnetic adaptors are nothing new. magtop pro, however, is not JUST an adaptor. Yes, it does make plugging easy, giving you access to the emerging standard for charging and transferring data, and YES it does seamlessly detaches the power cable when it’s pulled from its socket, but it is also so much more than that.
