Are the Magsafe 3 ports backward compatible with Magsafe 2?

Anyone have anything specific on this?

Magsafe 3 does have fast charging, so that's a potential good update.

But I have plenty of Magsafe 2 chargers still around...

It's a different shape, so it's not physically compatible. I didn't catch if there's going to be a cheap adapter (if that's even been announced yet), like there was with Magsafe 1 to 2. If it's technically possible, someone will probably made an adapter at some point.

The best part is that the Magsafe 3 cable is a USB connector to the power brick. About time!

I've been using a Magsafe 2 to USB-C cable for maybe 2 years now. Unofficial, of course, but it hasn't given me any issues.

I mean, since you only need a USB C to magsafe cable -- I would expect knockoffs soon.

Powerbrick is just standard stuff.
