People love to moan about the slimline MagSafe 2 adapter that was launched to match the skinny (current) MacBook Air. It falls out, they say. It’s too easy to knock from its magnet-hole. I’ve never had any trouble with it. In fact, I like it more than the original because not only does it stay firmly in place, but it also snaps in properly in to begin with. I often found the old fat MagSafe would fail to engage, leaving me with a dead battery when I left the house (not that I ever actually leave the house).
Anyhow, you whiners now have something else to waste your money on: the Snuglet.
What’s the Snuglet? It’s a rectangular donut which slips into your MagSafe socket and makes it smaller. Now when you stuff the plug into the power hole it stays there, jammed in and held by friction. The video shows in in action, and you can see that the power plug really is rammed in there good.
Of course, this makes it more likely that the attached MacBook will skitter across a polished table and take a dive onto the hard tiled floor beneath when some idiot child runs past and catches the cord. Wouldn’t it be better to stop trying to balance the MacBook on its power cable when on your lap, or to stop putting a fat hard drive under the plug when its on a desk (both examples from the video)?
Still want one? It’ll cost you $15-$19 for a pair of gold-plated Snuglets. And you’ll have to wait. If the Kickstarter project is successful, you can expect delivery in September.Related
