The New MacBook Recharges From A Beefy USB Power Brick


Apple introduced the radical new MacBook today. For better or worse, it only sports one port. The tiny USB Type-C port handles everything from data transport to recharging the notebook. That’s right, the new MacBook is the first portable Mac in generations to not utilize MagSafe.

Instead Apple is using a USB Type-C connector and a powerful USB power wall wart just like the iPad. The 29W adapter appears to be just slightly larger than the 12W charger that ships with the iPad. It can still use a longer power cord.

This power adapter slightly addresses the new MacBook’s lack of ports. At least it can double as an iPhone charger when not recharging the MacBook.
