The M2 processor, MacBook Air 2022, macbook pro 13 2022, which continued to consume more energy than ever before, and a new 35W dual usb-c charger appeared.
Apple releases two 35W dual usb-c chargers
It is very rare for apple to introduce the charger at the press conference. The new 35W dual usb-c charger has higher power than the old 30W charger. The biggest advantage is that it has two usb-c output ports, which means that it can charge two devices at the same time. When traveling on business macbook、iPhone Charging together, just bring a charger.
As early as April 12, 2022, the foreign media of professional charging information, chargerlab, broke the news about Apple's 35W dual usb-c charger. It finally appeared after nearly two months.
The new generation of 35W dual usb-c charger unveiled at the press conference has been put on the shelves in Apple's official mall in China at a price of 399 yuan, hereinafter referred to as "flat 35W dual port charger". In addition, another 35W dual usb-c charger "not mentioned" in the press conference was also on the official website of Apple China. It is consistent with the previous design of Apple charger family. The pins are folding and can be removed and replaced. The selling price is exactly the same, both of which are 399 yuan.
New face flat 35W dual port charger
It can be seen from the shape of the flat 35W dual port charger that it is different from the apple charger family. It adopts the structural design of "biscuit shaped flat side plug", the shell has a smooth and bright surface, and the two usb-c output ports are on the side. When it is used on the wall plug, the cable outgoing line naturally droops. This version also appeared in the press conference.
Both sides of the charger are recessed for convenient hand-held handling. The pins are folded, making travel more portable. However, from the perspective of structure, the pin cannot be removed, which is a rare non removable pin usb-c charger with power greater than 20W in apple.
It can be learned from the nameplate information provided on the official website that the charger model is a2579, which supports the use of 100-240v~50/60hz global power grid and the power blind plug function. The output voltage of any single port can provide four fixed voltage PDOS of 20v1.75a / 15v2.33a / 9v3a / 5v3a. The manufacturer is selcan Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., which has passed 3C certification.
35W dual port charger inheriting family face
Another 35W dual usb-c charger can be seen from the shape of apple family's habitual design. It adopts a square appearance, left and right ultrasonic clamping, and the pins adopt Apple's unique removable replacement travel pins, which is a very classic design.
Since the traditional family face is adopted in the form, and the pins can be replaced, the volume can be obtained by comparing the 30W single port charger according to the proportional scaling of the pictures on the official website of the 35W dual port charger. As can be seen from the side view, the volume of the 35W dual port charger is exactly the same as that of the 30W single port charger< a href="" target="_blank">
The biggest difference in the front shape is the number of interfaces. The two sizes are completely consistent. Therefore, the three dimensions in the apple 30W charger manuscript can be evaluated by the charging head network as a reference. It is speculated that the three dimensions of Apple 35W dual usb-c charger are 56mm x 56mm x 28.5mm, and the volume is 89.39cm ³， Power density 0.39w/cm ³。
The above is the family diagram of Apple chargers. It can be seen that the 29w - 140W adopt the same family face design, and it can also be seen that the product power iterations replace the old with the new.
Looking back, apple chargers larger than 20W all use Apple's special replacement pin design.
The replaceable pin design of Apple charger has a common "8" Jack as its power supply interface. In addition, there is a metal circular disc pin for fixing the plug, and the disc pin has a "grounding" function. Thanks to the replaceable design, the charger is sold in different countries and regions. It can be used only with different plugs. Users can also purchase different replacement pins to facilitate cross regional travel.
In addition, Apple also has a detachable plug with its own three core cable for users to choose. It can be directly inserted into the replacement pin position to turn the charger into a desktop charger, and it is connected with the round disk nail to make the grounding function effective.
