MacBook® charging: Ins and Outs August 16, 2019

MacBook® charging: Ins and Outs, Bend, Oregon

So you forget your power adapter for your Apple® computer on vacation or your dog ate the charging cord on your power adapter, what do you do?  I would look at finding a new adapter.  This can be harder than you think, due to the variety of power adapters.  

Each Apple® laptop is specifically designed to use a particular wattage power adapter.  For instance, a MacBook® Air (MBA), either 11” or 13” size would take a 45W adapter.  A 13” MacBook® Pro (MBP) would take 60W, while a 15” MacBook® Pro (MBP) needs a 85W adapter 

Newer MacBook® from 2016 on needs even different wattages.  They come in a 29W (13” MBA), 61W (13” MBP) or a 87W (15” MBP). The MacBook® uses a 30W adapter.

Even with these difference wattages, comes another twist.  Depending on the year of the computer, you will either need a MagSafe® or a MagSafe® 2  end on the power adapter. Years from 2012 and older need the MagSafe® end.  (It looks like an L).  Ruffly from 2013 to 2015, a MagSafe® 2 end will do.  (It looks like a T).  From 2016 on, you need the USB-C charging Cables.

So the moral of the story is, when looking at replacing your charger for your MacBook®, bring the laptop or the damaged charger into the store to make sure you buy the correct power adapter for you MacBook®.  Otherwise, you might damage your MacBook® using the wrong wattage adapter and we don’t want that to happen.

Come see us at Experimax Bend at 20205 Powers Road Ste 101, Bend, OR to make sure your MacBook® gets the correct power adapter! We have each of these power adapters in stock. Also, come check out the certified pre-owned MacBook® available for purchase.
