    the cord is annoying but i like staying fully charged haha… oh and it doesn’t clip very will with my macbook pro 13.

    This will ruin the whole point of the “mag” safe adaper. In case of an accident, the laptop has a greater chance of falling because the charger will not be able to disconnect easily

    Need an inductive charger/battery so the corded adapter is 100% gone.
