Snippet: USB Type-C Power Adapter Possibilities ☇

Shared on March 14, 2015

Think of your standard MacBook Air power adapter. Now think of the new $79.00 USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter Apple makes for use with the new MacBook. The USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter gives you access to HDMI and USB Type-A, alongside a passthrough USB Type-C connection. Why couldn’t the functionality of the AV Multiport Adapter be included in the power adapter? After all they both use the same connection to interface with the new MacBook.

This isn’t a bad idea, but I think the same could be said about the iPad power adapter, when compared with the Lightning Digital AV Adapter. I like the idea of it being modular, but wish Apple would’ve included one in the box since there’s still a lot of flash drives and USB-A devices floating around.
