The Apple® MagSafe® connector has saved literally millions of laptops from destruction caused by tripping over one's power cord. But with the introduction of USB-C on new MacBooks, this safety feature is absent. The BreakSafe™patented quick-release magnetic connector 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.
Designed to Protect Your Laptop
Because it is designed to carry power sufficient to charge your laptop's battery (up to 60 watts), BreakSafe incorporates four different safety features to protect you and your laptop from accidental or intentional misuse.
Visual: Visual markings on the connector housing show the user the correct way to attach the cable and connector.
Magnetic: Magnets only allow it to be connected the correct way, and ensure the cord's polarity is consistent with both the power supply and the device being powered.
Structural: BreakSafe has two small keys molded into its magnetic connector that physically prevent the magnets from engaging, and prevent the cable from connecting incorrectly.
Electrical: The central ground pin is the first conductive element to touch when joining the cable and connector. This ensures that any static electrical charges are dissipated before before the cable begins passing power from supply to device.
Charge with Confidence
Use BreakSafe with the USB-C power supply that came with your laptop. BreakSafe is rated up to 60 watts (20 volts @ 3 amps), and has been designed and tested to meet USB-C power standards. Please note that BreakSafe is for charging power only; data and video are not supported.
