MacBook Air: 35W vs 67W Power Adapter (Differences)

In this quick article, I will succinctly share the differences between the two competing power adapters available for the MacBook Air. You’ll see these listed on the Apple website when you attempt to purchase one, and frankly, it’s confusing.

I’m also sharing this information because many of my readers choose Apple as their laptop of choice, so I know it’s relevant and on point.

So let’s get into it.

35W Dual USB-C Port Compact Power Adapter

The 35W dual USB-C port compact power adapter is smaller and has two USB-C ports that can charge two devices simultaneously.

Here’s a picture of what it looks like.

67W USB-C Port Power Adapter

The 67W USB-C port power adapter only has one port but can charge your MacBook Air 50% in 30 minutes.

Summary and My Opinion

In my opinion, you’ve got a single choice to make, which will determine which of the above adapters you should buy.

If you want a faster charge (and why wouldn’t you?), go with the 67W USB-C port power adapter.

The entire reason you own a MacBook Air is for portability, right? So why hinder your mobility by not having a fully charged laptop (which you’ll more easily get with the 67W USB-C port power adapter)? If you’re interested in charging your iDevices at the same time you’re charging your laptop, like your iPhone, just plug it into one of the available ports on your MacBook Air.

To me, the 35W dual USB-C port compact power adapter just feels like a gimmick — one you can do without.

CASE CLOSED — buy this one.
