$129,466

The world's most sophisticated magnetic connector!

MagNeo is by far the most compatible and usable USB-C magnetic connector out there. Its the first and only magnetic connector that does not only power, but data and video as well. Finally, your USB-C port can be used as intended, not just for charging.

HERE IS OUR NEW DESIGN (UPDATE 1/18/2017):

New and old models

BELOW IS OUR KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN SHOWING OUR OLDER HOUSING DESIGN. ALL INFORMATION REGARDING DEVICE CAPABILITIES STILL HOLD TRUE FOR THE NEW DESIGN!


 

Comparison

MagNeo has 3X the functionality of other magnetic connectors, with the unique capability to provide all the USB-C signals required of new peripherals. Not only is the connector rated for up to 100W charging capacity, it also allows up to 5K video and Thunderbolt 3 speed data, all while maintaining USB-C reversible connector capability.

 

 

Design

Made from ultra high quality materials, MagNeo is design to withstand the wear and tear of daily use.

Gold plated pogo pins provide a secure connection with ultra low power losses at the contact surfaces. These contacts are designed to last up to 1 million cycles

   

Compatibility

MagNeo is compatible with ALL devices that have a USB-C connector, including all Thunderbolt 3 devices. From the latest 2016 Macbook Pros (13" & 15"), to USB-C Hubs & Docks, to Google Pixel smartphones, MagNeo has you covered.

 

 

Magnets Save

Cables tangle easily and nothing is worse than tripping on one, causing damage to your device or yourself. Magnetically coupled connectors remove this hazard as the cable will unlatch before causing problems. Save your gadgets.

 

 

Another bonus to magnetic connectors is the simple and easy connectability... Don’t risk scratching your beautiful device with that plug, let the magnets guide the connection for you.
