Discover New Charging Methods With the MagSafe 2 Power Adapter

Powering your device with an Apple MagSafe 2 power adapter lets you charge your battery or use your device without having a battery installed. The magnetic DC connector on the MagSafe 2 means that it will disconnect harmlessly instead of breaking the cord when you put pressure on it. You can find a MagSafe 2 adapter easily on eBay, so you do not have to worry about your device being yanked off of a table or couch if someone trips on the cord while you are using it to charge your item.

Which Apple products are compatible with the MagSafe 2?

There are actually three different MagSafe 2 connector models, and each one is compatible with a wide variety of Apple devices. Here are the compatibility options for all the MagSafe2 variants that you can find on eBay.

  • MagSafe 2 45W: Both the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Airs made after mid 2012 use the MagSafe 2 adapter.
  • MagSafe 2 60W: This is compatible with all the 12-inch Macbook Pros produced after late 2012.
  • MagSafe 2 85W: The MagSafe 2 85W works with the 15-inch Macbook Pros produced made after mid 2012.
How does the MagSafe 2 compare to earlier models?

The MagSafe 2 adapter has different engineering that affects its shape without changing overall charging methods for the adapter. The older and newer models both have the same rate of charging and are compatible with the same types of ports. However, the shape of the port is a little wider and slimmer even though the connector pins are still the same size. This new shape makes it a little easier for the MagSafe 2 cable to remain connected to your Apple device while still retaining its ability to disconnect.

Can you use a MagSafe 2 with the wrong wattage?

If your laptop calls for a specific wattage, you need to pay attention to this when purchasing your MagSafe 2 device from eBay. You can use an adapter with a higher wattage than the one required from your device without affecting the performance in any way. For example, a computer that uses a 60W adapter can use the MagSafe 2 85W adapter. Keep in mind that a MagSafe 2 adapter with a lower wattage than your devices requirements will not work because it will not give your computer enough power.
