“One of the biggest complaints regarding the 12-inch MacBook has been the ports, or lack thereof, that the device offers,” Chance Miller reports for 9to5Mac.

“The MacBook features just as single USB-C port that you use for everything, including charging,” Miller reports. “This means that the MagSafe technology that Apple introduced 10 years ago and that we’ve all come to love is nowhere to be found. A new accessory introduced by Griffin today, however, aims to fix that problem [available in April for $39.99].”

“The BreakSafe cable comes in two parts. The first part is a 12.8mm small plug that you insert into the USB-C port on the MacBook,” Miller reports. “The second part is the 6-foot cable that connects magnetically to the 12.8mm dongle and features a USB-C connection on the other side.”
