Basics of Apple adapters
Apple adapters work just like any other power cord or adapter. They plug into an outlet, and convert an alternating current of varying voltage to a direct current that is stable and will not fry an electronic device.
This standardises the voltage, and allows Apple to make custom power requirements for the "iDevice". How to read the titles To help you to interpret the Apple titles of their power cords, we'll start out with an example of "Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter". (Note that you should always check to make sure that the cord you are buying is for the product you to own). First of all, the 60W stands for "60 Watts" of power, as for how much power it can transmit to your device at any given time. MagSafe "MagSafe" is a technology by Apple that ensures that if stress is put on the power cord, it disconnects. This makes sure that your wires do not gradually break and become a power hazard, or just completely break and stop working. Limited warranty Most Apple cords come with a limited warranty.
Great savings You can get great savings on whatever Apple power cords you need online. Google Shopping One great resource to go to is Google Shopping. Although, sometimes the products here are used ones, they are fine enough to buy in that condition, just so long as they are stated as in working condition. You should not buy anything labelled "poor condition", because this can sometimes be a pseudonym used by sellers to get you to buy a broken product. Amazon Another place is Amazon. Amazon has these cables new, from the Amazon warehouse, at normally around 50% off of retail price (the price you would find in stores like Wal Mart, and so on). Note Normal USB cables do not work for these products, as they have a special extra-wide size, which no standard USB cable has.
