    Hello All,

    I'm thinking about buying one of the Hypermac External Batteries ( for traveling and such.

    They offer their models with either the old Magsafe connector or the new, silver, tubular connector. I would prefer the tubular connector, but I have the old style MBP (non-unibody).

    Is the new style connector compatible with the old style MBP?

    Thanks in advance,

    They are the same connector, just with a different shape. Since it is the same connector it will work with any MagSafe port.

    Sweet. Thanks!

    Whenever I use the MBP on my lap with my legs crossed, I always end up pushing up the magsafe connector, and I'm always worried I'm gonna get shocked, although it has never happened.
