The new MacBook will support cheaper, non-Apple chargers

11 USB-C Cables and Adapters for Apple’s New Macbook.

Apple’s MagSafe charger is a wonderful charging technology that has saved my MacBook more times than I can count, but if the cord frays — or if you lose or break it — you’re left with no choice but buying a new one from Apple. Apple’s new MacBook is one of the first laptops to support the new USB Type-C standard, a small, reversible connector that will probably replace all the existing USB connectors out there over the next two years.

Belkin and SanDisk have already announced their first USB-C gadgets, and eventually cut-rate retailers like will enter the fray with generic Chinese cables. You’ll want more than one, of course, but the very same cable could (and almost certainly will) someday charge your phone, your laptop, charge your phone from your laptop, and connect your PC to your external monitor. The new Chromebook Pixel is the first I’ve seen in person, and so far other announcements have mostly been limited to the new MacBook and a few other randoms. If you have an older monitor, you’ll want this adapter, which splits the MacBook’s USB-C port into a USB-C passthrough for power, a VGA video-out, and a USB-A 3.1 data transfer cable. LaCie is coming out of the gate with the first native USB-C compatible hard drive, a sleek, aluminum device which will come in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB sizes.

It doesn’t appear to be a passthrough adapter, but you can transfer files onto its 32GB of storage to move them from other laptops, tablets, and phones over to your MacBook.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "The new MacBook will support cheaper, non-Apple chargers".
