MagSafe adapters are amazing—they can often keep a little stumble from turning into a full-on disaster with the way they just release the cord when the wrong pressure is applied. Sometimes, though, power adapters suffer some abuse due to our busy, on-the-go lives; even with good care, fray happens!
Well, our friends at quirky teamed up with the quirky community to create a fix for our fraying blues. The PowerCurl! This bright orange creation allows your power cord to have a safe housing (the power cord fits into the PowerCurl frame), the wires from the MagSafe wrap around the PowerCurl so you don’t have to worry about the cord going everywhere (it will even house the extension cable!). But the best part is that the PowerCurl will help cut back with the cord fraying by the brick of the MagSafe because of the way it coils around the unit.
It also makes bringing your power cord much easier. You don’t have to worry about the cables going all over the place. I have a pocket in my backpack that holds this perfectly!
You might argue that the MagSafes have the legs on the power brick that you can wrap the cable around; however, I feel like they are a bit flimsy and don’t offer the same “toughness” that the PowerCurl does. For $11.99 you can’t go wrong!
It’s a lot cheaper that $79.99 for a new MagSage Power Adapter! Tip: The PowerCurl is available in a 60W and 85W size! So be sure to get the 60W for your MacBook or 13” MacBook Pro and the 85W for your 15” or 17” MacBook Pro!
