MagSafe replacement comes to Apple's 15" MacBook Pro with Vinpok Bolt-S USB-C adapter

A new USB-C adapter and cable from Vinpok will soon return MagSafe-like functionality to the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, complete with 87 watts of charging power.




The Bolt-S cable has a USB-C detachable end that inserts into the computer, with the cable itself held in place with a magnetic ring. Vinpok claims that it is the first and only magnetic power cable solution able to provide full charging power to the 2016 and 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro With Touch Bar.




The cable will not carry data, meaning users will have to plug a standard USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 cable into one of the MacBook Pro's three other ports for external devices and accessories.

The Vinpok Bolt-S will come in black or silver, and will retail at launch for $29 according to company representative.
