    Good reminder. I'm going to miss MagSafe once I replace my 2013 MBA! It's always so satisfying snapping it on and tilting it off

    Yah, I miss that a lot. Between that being gone and the USB-C, I miss my old one. I sold it yesterday, too

    If you want to re-create the magsafe connector, you can go with something like this USB-C magnetic adapter. There should be less resistance to then yanking from the cord since the magnetic connector should give way faster than the USB-C connector itself.

    I did use one of those but I worried that maybe it had something to do with the problem and stopped. It's the problem of the cord ripping out when I trip over it or a possible problem with the adapter. Either way, it's suboptimal.
