Question: Third-party power adapter and cable for MacBook Pro

Hi,


I have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013).


The power adapter + USB-C charger cable from Apple is around $100.


Are there any reliable, safe and cheaper third-party chargers I can buy?


MacBook Pro, OS X El Capitan (10.11.5)

Answer:
Answer:

The late 2013 MacBook Pro does not use a power adapter with a USB-C cable. It uses an 85W MagSafe Power Adapter with MagSafe 2 connector. I can't help regarding 3rd party versions of that but at least that may help you look for the right thing. See: Find the right power adapter and cable for your Mac notebook - Apple Support


They are $79 including the permanently attached cable. See: Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter - Apple
