Apple held its annual WWDC conference a few hours ago. In addition to the release of new operating systems such as iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro equipped with M2 chips were also released. At the same time, Apple also quietly mentioned some accessories on the official website. The company now had rumors in the past about Type-C 35W dual port chargers on its shelves. It is worth mentioning that both chargers come with a price of 399 yuan ($ 60). However, these chargers do not come with charging cables. This means that users will have to purchase the charging cables separately.
The official Apple website describes the two chargers as follows: “Whether at home, in the office or on the go, this small USB-C 35W dual-port power adapter lets you easily charge two devices at once. It is small and excellent and the plug can be folded for easy transport and storage “.
In addition, Apple says “this power adapter is recommended for use with the MacBook Air. You can also use it to charge iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and AirPods.
In terms of compatibility, the charger supports iPhone 8 / iPhone 8 Plus and above It also supports all Apple Watch series, iPad mini 5/6, iPad 7/8/9, iPad Air 3/4/5, iPad Pro 11 inches, 12.9 inch iPad Pro etc.
Would you spend 399 yuan ($ 60) to buy an Apple dual port C charger that supports 35 W charging power and does not include a charging cable?
How reasonable is the price?
When it comes to Apple pricing logic, there are usually mixed feelings. The “absurd” price of various Apple peripherals has become the consensus of consumers. These two $ 60 chargers once again proved this point. The two new 35W dual USB Type-C chargers sell for 399 yuan ($ 60) and there is no bonus.
According apple, these two chargers allow users to easily charge two devices at the same time and the smaller one also uses a collapsible plug. In terms of compatibility, these two pumps support most Apple portable devices. It also supports all MacBook Air from 2018, including the 2022 release.
This means that if you want to equip your 2022 MacBook Air with an extra set of formal charging equipment, you will have a 399 yuan ($ 60) charger and a 340 yuan ($ 51) charging cable in front of you. So the total price for the accessory is 739 yuan ($ 111). In all honesty, it’s more like a scam if you have to spend an extra $ 111 after buying a device. In addition, both the charging kit and the device are from the same company.
