.......30W USB-C Power Adapter......


Apple Releases New Version of 30W USB-C Power Adapter, But Changes Unclear

....Apple today quietly released a new version of its 30W USB-C power adapter with the model number MY1W2AM/A. The outward design of the adapter has not changed, so if any tweaks have been made, they are likely internal. The previous model MR2A2LL/A is no longer available for purchase from Apple.

The power adapter remains compatible with any USB-C enabled device, with Apple continuing to recommend that it be paired with the 13-inch MacBook Air with a Retina display. The adapter can also be used to fast charge compatible iPhone and iPad Pro models. The new version remains priced at $49 on Apple's online store and ships within a few days.

Apple made a similar move in June 2018, when it quietly replaced its 29W power adapter with the original 30W version that was sold until this week.



charge.......in a new....way.......?!

Too bad, does not appear to be GaN which would make them smaller.

Still has the undersized cord that goes bad in a year or so, I'll take a dell brick any day - they last forever.

Yes, the Apple USB-C charging cords are pretty terrible.

Not in my experience, don't know how many Dell power adapters we had to replace for the laptops we lent at the university library. Cords that pulled out, charging tips where the plastic cracked, and so on.

Also lent MacBook Air laptops, only had to replace a few of their power adapters. One of those was because someone managed to swap their broken lower capacity adapter for one of ours and not get detected on return.
