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.
