Use Your Older MacBook Pro Charger on Newer Mac Laptops

Do you have an older, magnetically attached laptop power cord that you’d like to connect to your new Mac laptop which requires a thinner connector? If so, you could buy Apple’s MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter ($10). In 2006, Apple introduced magnetically attached laptop power cords, called the MagSafe Power Adapter, on their MacBook Pro. Since then, they’ve added this connector to all laptops and many monitors. In 2012, they introduced a thinner version of this power cord called the MagSafe 2 Power Adapter. You can continue to use these older monitors and power adapters with a new Mac laptop that requires the thinner MagSafe 2 connector by purchasing this affordable adapter.
