In all likelihood, it’ll still work just the same with our adapters/conversion.
We hear you, and we're almost there, however our vendor for the ACTUAL Macbook Air has delayed our order because of the recent Tornados in that region.... Target date is about Feb. 16. We now wished that we ordered directly from Apple(Apple appears to be currently delayed as well).
We did however got our hands on the actual magsafe adapter and we're positive that it'll work, however we'd like to make sure. If you'd wish to get our mod before then (you'll be considered beta testers) then please email us or to be place on the notify list.
We expect to be working our magic on the new magsafe cable so that you can continue to use, power and charge your Macbook Air ANYWHERE (Airline, Car, home, boat, truck) !
Please check back or email us!
Yes, please contact us!
You can place your order now.
Demo model Shown, It will ship with longer power cord.
We have decided that we will NOT offer the upgrade option to users with the Apple Airline adapter.
With the time involved in modifying the circuitry in the Apple Airline adapter and for the price...We've decided that we can get better results from converting Apple’s AC adapter. Also, the demand does not seem that great.
Please email us if you would like to be contacted once we make this upgrade available.
Keep in mind our car/airline adapter solution using other adapters is still a better solution then Apples airplane adapter since it does NOT charge the battery.
We will also be offering users the option to upgrade their recently announced Apple Airline adapter so that it CAN be used to charge on the airplane and be used in the car. Please contact us if you would like this done.
Sleek and light, MagSafe Airline Power Adapter works with in-seat DC power ports available on many commercial airliners — both EmPower ports and 20mm ports with the included adapter. Check with your airline regarding availability of in-seat power ports.
Because it's a MagSafe Adapter, you'll continue to enjoy MagSafe convenience just as you're already enjoying at home or work. The magnetic DC plug both ensures a tight connection and enables a clean break from the power port if there is undue tension — preventing your MacBook from being pulled off of your tray table if someone accidentally yanks the cord.
- Using the MagSafe Airline Power Adapter provides power for your computer but does not charge the battery.
- The MagSafe Airline Power Adapter is not compatible with automobile power ports.
Please note that our Car/Airline adapter continues to offer a better solution.
1) It DOES charge the battery in Airlines.*
2) It IS compatible with automobile power ports.
Although our Car/Airline DC adapter does not come with empower plug (sold separately), our next model will include the Airline plug that is integrated with the adapter. It will continue to offer the above benefits and more.
* Provided that you are not fully taxing your Macbook Pro to it's limit. Otherwise, it will charge your battery for about 90% of the users.
Also, we are even closer to offering an external battery option with Magsafe connector... Keep your votes coming in! yours might push it to reality that much faster!
There seems to be a need for external battery pack for Macbook / Macbook Pro. We are looking into that which will work with the magsafe connector.
Please email us as we are gauging it's demand.
DIY manual is intended for those who know some things about soldering and electronics.
We will also be including some information on how to get AC/DC combo adapters such as the iGo and Kensington adapters to work with the magsafe.
However, DO NOT misunderstand the purpose of this plug. It is simply a way to change the shape of one plug to another shape, it does not supply modified power to your laptop whatsoever!
* We are not promoting the above link, it is just merely an example of the type of plug you need, there are plenty of other places to purchase the Airplane plug (empower plug).
P.S. We are looking in the possibility in including this plug with our Modification- Please check back.
The Car adapter supplies up to 90w of power if demanded; it is impossible to get 90w if there is only 75w available, but there is a tremdus amount of energy wasted converting from DC to AC, then BACK to DC... You've lost several wattage points just simply converting from DC to AC right off the bat. Therefore, there's a better chance that you'll be better performance with a direct DC to DC solution in an airplane as opposed to using an inverter.
This Car adapter has an adjustable voltage output, use can adjust voltage output from 15v all the way up to 24v (I don't recommend using anything over 18v though).
User need not return their old 85w Magsafe Apple adapter, however, it'll cost you $90.00.
