Hi guys,

Any idea what the best Magnetic USB-C charging cable is for Macbook Pro 2017? I've only got 2 USB-C ports but I'm hating not having Magsafe and need to get an adaptor and cable because it's driving me crazy.

Any tips or recommendations would be great.

MagSafe was so cool, but it was only used for charging. USB-C is also very cool in that more and more devices are using it, it can carry power and data, and it is reversible. I do understand how you feel, because MagSafe was the best break away technology I have ever seen. But, alas, it has fallen to USB-C as parallel, serial, ps/2, and SCSI fell to USB.

Sorry man, "The times, they are a-changing" (Bob Dylan...maybe)

You might want to give a look at Snapnator. I purchased the Snapnator Pro for my 2018 MBP - works fine
