December 14, 2019 by Paul Shepard

SMK Electronics Corporation, U.S.A., a division of SMK Corporation, today announced introduction of the SMK-Link-branded USB-C MagTech™ Charging Cable – a 6.5’ woven charging cable with magnetic quick-disconnect tip. Providing fast 87W charging for USB-C and Thunderbolt™ 3-equipped laptops and supported devices, the MagTech Charging Cable (offered in both Space Gray and Black) will be available through computer resellers and online retailers starting in January, 2020. The USB-C MagTech™ Charging Cable will be on display at CES 2020 (Sands Expo Hall, #41118).

“We are excited to be introducing such a simple, yet surprisingly effective product,” said Mr. Paul Evans, President, SMK Electronics Corporation, U.S.A. “Today’s ultra-thin laptops are typically provisioned with either USB-C or Thunderbolt™ 3 ports – ports used both for charging and to charge supported devices. Our new MagTech Charging Cable, with its break-away magnetic tip, eliminates laptop damage due to cording accidents, while making device charging fast, easy and secure.”

With its magnetic quick-disconnect tip and 6.5’ woven cable, the MagTech Charging Cable gives users a fast, easy way to charge USB-C and Thunderbolt 3-equipped computers and supported devices.
