In addition to the transfer to USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 on the MacBook, Apple rejected its MagSafe magnetic sensitive link. Products like the Griffin BreakSafe try to return magnetic charge to the Mac, but without restrictions. ThunderMag, however, is a new magnetic adapter with the full support of Thunderbolt 3.

ThunderMag was developed by Innerexile accessory maker and launched three Kickstarter today. The product deals with full Thunderbolt 3 specifications, including 40Gbps transfer of data, charging 100W, 4K / 5K video and more.

- 24-pin retrieval plug design
- Device resistance and yank-safe
- Short description and overload current
- Suitable for USB-C MacBook Pro and other Type C devices
For design, ThunderMag is a small two-piece connection that connects to a USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 on your Mac. One piece discusses the Mac itself, while the other operates a rubber connector between your cable and Mac.
From that point, you can complete any compatible cable directly into the attachment, and the magnetic attachment breaks and ensure that your Mac will not fly if you go over the cable.
Engadget is using a final version of ThunderMag for several months:
Unfortunately, I was able to continue the progress of ThunderMag closely, especially when I got the first prototype back in June last year. The finest product is now very polished, but packing the right amount of magnetic force to ensure that the particular adapter pauses when the cord is removed.
ThunderMag is available on Kickstarter, with a $ 39 promise that promises you to deliver on April. The total retail price is $ 79 when the early bird period ends. As it always happens, lightly tread when it comes to Kickstarter accessories, but if it happens to be the real effect, it should be a functional way to bring MagSafe back to the Mac.
