Best MacBook Air replacement chargers in 2023

João Carrasqueira


Managed to damage or lose the charger for your MacBook Air? Here are the best replacement options.

The MacBook Air is one of the most popular laptops in the world. It may no longer be the lightest laptop around, but especially since it was refreshed with the Apple M1 chipset in 2020 — and following the M2 model’s launch in 2022 — it’s one of the most powerful ultrabooks out there, and certainly one of Apple’s best Macs. In general, Apple products are very popular among students, and the latest MacBook Air is too, but that can also mean they’re subject to some unfortunate events. Whether you lost your original MacBook Air charger or somehow damaged it, you may find yourself in need of a replacement.

To help you out, we’ve rounded up some of the best replacement chargers you can get for the MacBook Air, whether you’re rocking one of the latest models or an older one. Most of the recent iterations of the MacBook Air charge via USB Type-C, but the 2022 model as well as the 15-inch version that was launched at WWDC 2023 also support the new MagSafe 3 charger. Older models still use MagSafe 2, and even older ones might still use the original MagSafe design, but for something that old, you might just want to consider buying a new laptop instead. With that being said, here are some of the best chargers you can get for your MacBook Air.

  • Apple 30W USB-C Power Adapter

    Editor’s Choice

    This is Apple’s basic 30W charger for the MacBook Air, just like the one that comes in the box. It has a single USB-C port, and you can use a USB-C to USB-C cable or a MagSafe 3 cable with it.

  • Apple 67W USB-C power adapter

    Premium Pick

    The 2022 MacBook Air comes with support for fast charging, and if you want to make use of it, you’ll need this power adapter. It also has a USB-C port and you have to buy a cable separately, whether that’s a USB-C cable or a MagSafe 3 one.

  • Amazon Basics 30W GaN USB-C Wall Charger

    Best Value

    If you want a new charger for as little as possible, the Amazon Basics 30W charger does the job, and it’s the cheapest option on this list. It’s still fairly compact, too, and comes in two colors.

    Super compact

  • Apple 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter

    For older MacBooks

    Still rocking a MagSafe 2-based MacBook Air? No worries, you can still get the original 45W MagSafe 2 charger straight from Apple, and it’ll keep your laptop charged up without a hitch.

    See at Amazon

Whether you’re using the latest MacBook Air model or an older one, losing or breaking your charger doesn’t have to be the end of the world. You can get official replacements straight from Apple, though you will need a cable as well, such as this USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable straight from Apple. Many third-party options are cheaper and include a USB-C to USB-C cable, and if you want the most compact solution, you can even get something like the Hyphen-X 100W charger so you can easily keep all your devices without taking up a bunch of outlets on your wall.

Because USB Type-C is such a common standard, some of these chargers will also work on other devices. Many of the best laptops available today also support USB Type-C charging, so buying a powerful charger is a good way to be ready in case you ever switch laptops. If you don’t currently have a MacBook Air or you’re looking to upgrade, you can buy the latest models below, whether you want the 13-inch model or the newer 15-inch version. You can also check out the MacBook Pro 2021 models if you need more power.

MacBook Air (M2)

The 2022 MacBook Air offers the M2 chip, and a redesigned chassis with MagSafe 3 support. It is powerful and can handle pretty much any kind of work, and it comes in either 13.6-inch or 15.3-inch sizes.

About The Author

I’ve been covering the tech world since 2018, and I love computers, phones, and – above all that – Nintendo videogames, which I’m always happy to talk about.

Staples® Official Online Store

School supplies, made easy

The success of your students starts with the right supplies. Whether you’re a parent or caregiver with one or more kids in school, or a teacher responsible for an entire classroom, Staples is a one-stop shop for all the school supplies you need. From writing supplies and paper to school tech and furniture, we have everything on your back-to-school list.

Shop by grade

Staples makes it easy to get exactly what your students need by organizing all the essentials by grade. Shop for preschool supplies like learning toys and rest mats, or elementary school supplies for everything your kids need from kindergarten through 5th grade. Our selection of middle school supplies includes more advanced items like planners and scientific calculators, and you can find everything you need for high school in our high school supplies section. Getting ready for college? From dorm essentials to laptops, get everything you need from our selection of college supplies.

All the essentials for school

Whether you want to shop by subject or are looking for furniture and supplies for learning at home, we’ve got the right selection. Browse classroom essentials including cleaning supplies, storage, classroom décor, snacks, and teacher supplies. For everything from school art supplies to calculators, binders, school backpacks, lunch boxes and more, we’ve got what your students need to succeed.

Take a seat

Whether you’re working from home or outfitting a space for gaming, your comfort is dependent on finding the best chair. At Staples, we provide a broad range of office chairs and seating, so you can find the right fit for you. Select from multifunctional task chairs, computer & desk chairs, drafting stools and more. If you will be using your new chair for multiple hours a day, make sure to get an ergonomic office chair to prevent unnecessary strain.

Comfort, all day long

Office furniture that is the proper size and height makes a big difference. When shopping for chairs, the height of the seat should be adjustable so that the user’s feet can sit flat on the floor with their knees at right angles. Likewise, the accompanying office desk should be at a height where the users’ elbows can sit comfortably at right angles at their sides while typing or writing. Browse our selection to find the combination that’s right for you. If size if a concern, check out our big & tall chairs which can support up to 500lbs.

Game on

If you’re a gamer, you know that a single gaming session can last all day or night. For the best and most comfortable gaming setup, Staples has gaming chairs in colors and styles for everyone. Make sure to match your new chair to an ergonomic gaming desk, the perfect complement for the high-tech gaming computer and accessories you’ve invested in.

Show seasonal allergies who’s boss

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, now is when they are at their worst. Stock up on allergy season’s most important products to keep your home, classroom, and office allergen-free. Start with an air purifier to strip the air of allergens like pollen and pet dander and replace existing air filters for improved air quality. Frequently dust, wipe down hard surfaces, and vacuum carpets and furniture to help eliminate pollen tracked in from outside and dander left behind by pets. When leaving the house, check the pollen count and bring a face mask to help filter the air you breath outside.

No matter what you do, it’s unlikely that the symptoms of seasonal allergies can be avoided entirely. Make sure to have over-the-counter cold and allergy medications on hand to battle symptoms, and stock up on facial tissues so you’ll always have one available when you need them.

Spring (Cleaning) is in the air

Spring cleaning and decluttering is a tradition meant to refresh our spaces for the year ahead. Staples has everything you need to clear out the clutter, store and organize your belongings, and all the right cleaning supplies.

Clear out the clutter

Start by preparing a checklist and make sure you have all the necessary supplies. Use storage bins and a label maker to make sorting and organizing easier. Prepare extra boxes for donations and trash bags for the things you no longer need. Look for decorative boxes & baskets that will compliment your home’s décor and use them to organize. You can also use closet organizers and storage drawers anywhere they are needed.

Start with the basics

An all-purpose cleaner, cleaning brush and microfiber cloths will clean most surfaces. Use a duster to remove unwanted dirt and furniture polish to revitalize wood surfaces. Upgrade your broom, dustpan, wet mop, and vacuum to make cleaning any type of flooring a breeze.

The nitty gritty

Spring cleaning doesn’t stop there. There’s so much you can do to reset your home:

  • Improve air quality and eliminate pollen and pet dander with a new air purifier and an air freshener with a scent you love.
  • On a sunny day, take the opportunity to clean your windows – you’ll need glass cleaner, a bucket, a squeegee, and paper towels.
  • Have a step stool or ladder on hand to access hard-to-reach places like the tops of cabinets and overhead lighting.
  • Replace broken light bulbs and check the batteries in your smoke detectors.
  • Use drain cleaner to clear up sink and bathtub drains.

Up your printing game with a Supertank Printer

Looking for a printer with more print capacity that’s better for the environment and your wallet? Shop Staples selection of Supertank Printers for all the benefits of an inkjet printer with the convenience and savings of replacement ink bottles that last longer and cost less per page than standard inkjet printer cartridges.

Find a Supertank printer from your favorite top printer brand including:

Rest assured it arrives safely & securely

Whether you are sending business documents or customer products, shipping and mailroom supplies from Staples make the process seamless.

Keep packing supplies ready for easy shipping. Padded envelopes and bubble mailers are perfect for shipping small, non-fragile items. Pack larger items in shipping boxes that are slightly larger than the item, and use packing peanuts, bubble roll, or other packing materials to keep objects from moving in the box during transport. Choose the right packing tape to ensure your packages will stay sealed. Staples carries clear acrylic packing tape for everyday shipping and reinforced or water activated tape for packages that require a heavier duty seal.

Manage the day-to-day office correspondence smoothly with a wide selection of business envelopes, inter-office envelopes, and catalog envelopes in the mailroom. Have finger pads and envelope moisteners on hand for speedy document collation and a quick seal. Choose security envelopes for confidential office correspondence and inter-office communications. If your office or organization sends out large mailings, consider a paper folding machine and self-sealing envelopes to increase efficiency.
