If you’ve owned a MacBook for any amount of time, you know that the MagSafe charging brick has a limited lifespan. Besides getting scuffed up and grimy, the rubberized cables are prone to fray which is more than unsightly — the exposed power conducting wires can be dangerous. Add to that the risk of losing your MagSafe (which would never happen, right?), it’s a good idea to pick up this spare for almost half the normal price, only $42.99.
It’s worth remembering what makes the MagSafe great. The magnetic DC connector secures easily to the computer and harmlessly disconnects in case you trip over it. It’ll recharge the battery whether the Air is off, on, or in sleep mode, with an LED light that makes sure you know when your cable’s connection is secure and charging. It all wraps up nice and neat for easy storage in your bag, or for safekeeping in your cabinet until you need it.
