The 60 Watt MagSafe power adapter comes with a number of great features. For example, it comes with a magnetic DC connector that ensures that the power cable disconnects when it experiences undue strain. This is of great benefit as it prevents fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition to preventing fraying, magnetic DC also guides the plug into the system ensuring that the cable has a quick and secure connection.
To know that the connection is secure you only need to take a look at the LED light that is located at the head of the DC connector. The light gives an amble light that lets you know that your device is charging. When you have full charge the amber light changes to green.
The adapter comes with a 1.7M cord that is long enough to allow you to charge your device without any problem. The unit has a compact design that makes it easy for you to wind the cable around it neatly making it possible for you to store the cable.
It’s good to note that the adapter recharges the lithium battery when your Mac notebook is off, on or in sleep mode. If you choose to operate the Mac without a battery you don’t have to worry as the adapter will power your device without any problem.
How to Maintain Your Apple Magsafe Adapter
For your adapter to last for a long time you need to do a number of things. One of the things is to ensure that the unit is compatible with your Mac notebook. For ideal results you should only use the adapter that comes with your notebook. If you don’t have it you should use any other Apple-authorized adapter that is compatible with your device.
Another thing you need to do is to ensure that the AC plug is fully inserted into your adapter before you plug it into the power outlet. You should also ensure that you plug the adapter into the wall before you connect it to your computer.
During charging, it’s common for the adapter to heat. To prevent it from overheating you should connect it to the power source while ensuring that there is adequate airflow around it.
This is what you need to know about apple MagSafe. Remember that the power port contains a magnet that can erase data in your device. To preserve your data you should place your device away from the port. As rule of thumb you should ensure that your device isn’t within 1 inch of this port.
