Along with the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, Apple also unveiled a brand-new dual USB-C power adapter, meaning that you can charge not only the MacBook, but anything else that relies on USB-C charging.
There’re global version and compact version for different purposes. The former looks like Apple’s standard charger and allows you to swap for international plug heads or extension cables. While the compact one has a more flat design. Because it supports a common USB-A plug that’s interchangeable, only consumers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, Japan, and select other countries are able to purchase the charger.
35W power in total
The charger supports 35W charging, no matter which version you choose. If you plug in a single device, it will charge at 35W, as long as it’s able to accept it. If you charge two devices simultaneously, however, the thing is a little different.
- If it is connected MacBook and an iPad or iPhone, each device receives up to 17.5W.
- If you connect an iPhone and an iPad, each device receives up to 17.5W.
- If you connect a Mac notebook or iPhone and an Apple Watch or AirPods, the Mac notebook or iPhone receives up to 27.5W and the Apple Watch or AirPods receive up to 7.5W
Unplug the other device or any charging cable that’s not in use, if you want to reach a faster charging speed. For your new M2 MacBook Air 2022, you may be tempted to buy the 67W fast charger (need to buy it separately), but considering its 15 hours of battery life, a 35W power adapter would suffice.
Each of the chargers comes in bundled with the MacBook Air 2022, but you can also place an order separately with a price of $59, according to the Apple store. Anyway, it’s not a bad idea to keep your MacBook from draining while topping up your other devices. But in the same price range, there are also great third-party options.
