Magnetic Power Connector / Consumer Electronics

Magnetic Power Connector

We all know that one of the most common places for a laptop to break is its power adaptor. This concept is solved the problem on their adapter plug by use of a magnetic power.

This connector has two parts, a part held in adapter plug the other place in socket. The two parts connect by magnetic power so that if it is tugged on by someone tripping over the cord it will pull out of the connector safely, without damaging it, the computer, or potentially pulling the laptop off of a table or desk. This design advantage is easily separated and it applies to any laptop adapter.
