Hey everyone,

I have been eyeing the Griffin BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable as I am disappointed with the removal of MagSafe.

I am wondering if the current BreakSafe rated for 60W will work with the 15" Macbook Pro?

I understand that the 15" is rated for 87W and not 60W like the BreakSafe cable is advertised as. Would it simply provide a slower charge, or would I also have to purchase the 60W power brick from apple in order to use the Griffin USB-C BreakSafe?

Thank you in advanced

I'm guessing it should work, just at slower speeds.

I've been using my girlfriends' 13" chargers on my 15" MBPs for 6 years now, nothing has ever happened, except it charges a bit slower.

I would wait a few weeks at this point to see if Griffin puts out an 87W BreakSafe cable, I'd be surprised if they didn't. I'm very interested in this as a replacement for MagSafe, and am hopeful other cable manufacturers will produce their own solution as well.
