Charger for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro

If you are risk averse, this is the genuine and highly rated Apple 85 watt MacBook MagSafe power adapter (Price: $79)

The eBay options are cheap enough that you might want to take a chance on them. You'll be making a $20 wager that what you'll get will be as good as the genuine $79 power adapter from Apple.

If you don't have one, you should take a look at the Apple Magic Mouse. I have one for my MacBook Air and for those times when I'm doing more than browsing around, it is a nice productivity addition. It connects easily via bluetooth to your MacBook and actually functions like a mini trackpad.

I love the touch scrolling where you just drag your fingers down the top of the mouse to scroll the screen. There is no click button, the whole front of the mouse clicks, which is cool. I also think it looks really nice!

Which MacBook charger should I get?

Hi bdarbs,

I just got an 11-inch MacBook Air last month and already lost my power adapter! I kinda do things like that though =) I think I left it plugged in at the library the last time I was there, and it was gone when I came back the next day. Boo.

When I looked online, I got very confused about all the options and wattages available. I saw 85 watt, 60 watt and 45 watt adapters for sale.

I ended up going into my local Apple Store (the one in Fashion Valley) and they said my MacBook Air needs the 45W magsafe power adapter, so that's what I got.

For any other accessory losers out there, the Apple guy said this is which power adapters go with each type of MacBook:

85 Watt Adapter:
  • 17-inch MacBook Pro

  • 15-inch MacBook Pro

60 Watt Adapter:
  • 13-inch MacBook Pro

  • MacBook

45 Watt Adapter:
  • 13-inch MacBook Air

  • 11-inch MacBook Air

More information about 85W, 60W or 45W Magsafe Adapter?

The 85 watt power adapter comes standard with the 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro laptops, the 60 watt chargers come with the MacBook, 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops and the 45 watt adapter is included with the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air laptops.

According to this post on the Apple Store website and this one on the apple support site, you can use the 85 watt or 60 watt chargers on the MacBook Air, but the 60 watt or 45 watt chargers will not work with the larger MacBook Pro laptops that requires an 85 watt power adapter.

The answerer claims that they got this information directly from Apple Support, saying that the MacBook Air will only draw the required amount of power from the 85 watt power adapter. Rule of thumb: any higher rated power adapter can be used with your MacBook, but do not use a lower rated one.

Not too bulky and stylish look is essential for counter top use.
