    Apple's Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Airs from 2012 on incorporate the thinner MagSafe 2 power port, requiring the use of a small MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter in order to use the computers with older power adapters.

    The MagSafe Adapter Key Ring is designed to prevent the loss of the MagSafe Converter by connecting it to a set of keys. Printed from stainless steel, the Key Ring attaches to the Converter using its internal magnet. We asked the creator, Jonathan Bobrow, about the strength of the magnetic hold:
    The MagSafe Adapter Key Ring is available from Shapeways and is priced at $15.00.

    Amazing.. I literally was just saying to myself yesterday "I wish Apple put a hole in this so I could attach it to something and not lose it!"

    Was thinking about doing this for the Digital AV Adapter (whilst also making the Digital AV Adapter shorter).

    Nice idea. I'll pass on the carabiner though - probably not much call for mountain climbing equipment in NYC.

    And there was me thinking that leaving it connected to the MagSafe 2 was all that was necessary...

    ...Nope, still thinking that.

    Maybe when multiple people/multiple computers use the same cord such as myself... Quit thinking, you'll hurt yourself!

    I was thinking the same thing--I usually put it on the end of a USB cord or something though :)

    They should have found a attractive way to put it on our iPhones. We never lose our phones, right?;)

    How has no one said anything about the price? It's cool, but definitely not $15 cool.

    $15 is fine... I've already lost 2 converters. I'm always accepting of anyone who calls me an idiot for losing 2, but man they are tiiiiny
