Keep your MacBook safe with the Griffin BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable – now $34.99

We’re heading toward a completely wireless world, but we’re not there quite yet. You still often have to deal with charging cables – and that can lead to some unwieldy situations. All it takes is an absentminded swing of a leg or unexpected arm nudge to send that cable flying — along with any expensive device connected to it.

Griffin’s been thinking about that doomsday scenario, which led to the BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable, now available for the discounted price of $34.99 in the TechnoBuffalo Deals Store.

While it looks like a normal charging cable, the BreakSafe is actually two pieces: a cable connected to your power source and a dongle attached to your device’s USB-C port. Those two parts are held together by magnets, which allow for device charging that easily separates when something snags the charging cable when it’s connected to an outlet and the computer itself.

Rather than picking your shattered MacBook or iPad off the floor, just slide your magnetic connectors back together – and you’re back in business.

The 60-watt BreakSafe cable guarantees fast charging speeds on par with Apple-approved cables – and the dongle, less than 13mm deep, can stay put in your USB-C port at all times, making charging and safety that much simpler.

USB-C is a fast-growing standard for devices manufactured by a host of companies, so expect years of service from the Griffin BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable, now going for $34.99 (12% off MSRP) for a limited time.
