The innovation o the Magsafe power connector
Gone are the days when people used cables in order to charge their MacBook. The Strømforsyning til mac and other chargers from the Magsafe line were introduced in order to help people from causing damage to laptops by accidentally tearing the cable or to prevent the crash of the device. The Magsafe power charger has been introduced in the year 2007 and since then it has represented a real innovation in the way the computer is charged and the way in which it operates. The fact is that the charger works smoothly and consumers have been taken aback by it.
How does it work?
The MagSafe is basically a series of power connectors that function based on a magnetic connection. The magnetic connection is what holds the power cord in place and also prevents unfortunate accidents such as someone tripping over the computer cord. The connector itself consists of a number of four magnetic rings that surround some power nubs. Once the power charger is near the entrance of the MacBook the charger automatically sticks to it. Moreover, the charger can be put in any position, so the user does not have to worry if he is holding the connector up or down. The functioning principle is similar to that of ordinary kitchen appliances and even though the idea is not new, Apple was the first to implement the magnetic system to the computer.
Generally speaking, power adapter for Apple products have from 29W to 85W power capacity, depending on the notebook. The strength of the adapter is what determines the functionality of the computer. For instance, low wattage chargers do not ensure the necessary power. Although there was significant concern that the magnetic field would destroy the data from the computer, it has been proven that modern storage devices and hard drives are actually immune to magnetic fields and that the magnetic connection is not strong enough to erase data.
How to maintain the magnetic charger
The adapter should not be plugged in the power outlet until the AC plug or power cord are completely inserted into the power charger. In addition to this, there is a certain chance that the power connector will become very worm during normal use and that it will dissipate operational heat. This is the reason for which the power connector has to be inserted into the power outlet making sure that there is airflow.
In conclusion, the MagSafe power adapter is considered to be at preset a true innovation. The true utility of the power adaptor is the fact that the owner does not have to worry anymore about the power cords lying on the floor and that can represent a threat to the life of the computer given that many people do not see them and often trip. Moreover, the design is very attractive.
