    For those who like using their Airs in bed or couch, this is a great solution. I don't see any harm in the accessory that can be taken off at any time yet add this simple solution to in-bed laptop users.

    Im not against you,   If youve got a new Air with the NEW charger connector, ....you know well you can leave it off charge a LONG time.

     

    Same new Air I have as well.

     

     

    I never said it was harmful in specific.........but easily could be "in general" .    Apple designed it that way for "everyone / everyday known use"

     

    not just "your (type) of safe use" .

    Don't forget, the unit I've got has a weaker magnet (inside MB) that you probably have.

  • PlotinusVeritas Level 6 Level 6 (14,705 points)

    nope, my new Air has that weaker magnet as well.

  • applesosvk Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Weaker then any other I've tested same model (friends and Airs in Apple Store). This was my last message. Have a nice day!

    I just got a brand new air this week, it is indeed extremely loose and comes out with ANY lateral force.

  • PlotinusVeritas Level 6 Level 6 (14,705 points)

    its not loose its designed that way for several good reasons.

     

     

    The gauss rating of the magnet was dropped from an N45 down to an N35 or N38 (magnetic power rating).

     

    and the design was changed to get rid of the "yank" problem of someone tripping over the cord and pulling their Mac to the floor.

     

     

     

    this WAS a "problem" in coffee shops when a 'person' would walk by and trip over someones charging cord.

    Exactly, that's why I'm ordering Snuglet =) (see above) The video is pretty cool too...

  • KiwiHolmberg Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Snuglet looks awesome. Im ordering a bunch for the office!

    I like a number of others have to question Apple's desire to make everything smaller, and in this case without ANY benefit.

     

    I'm sick of trying to make sure the Green charge light is on before I use my Air or it just goes to sleep because it thinks (and is) on battery thanks to the Magsafe2 not attaching snugly.

     

    Please Apple redesign the thing like the older and reliable version, which never failed me through at least 5 generations of MacBooks
