With the same breakaway feature that was a trademark of the MagSafe, the Bolt will prevent your MacBook, or any other device such as smartphones, from tumbling to the floor which can provide extra protection for your devices.
Bolt is the world’s first magnetic cable that fully supports 87W USB-C power adapter charging for 15-inch MacBook Pro and any other USB-C devices. No fuss, no mess and no more fumbling around to plug your cable into the right place.
Bolt provides the easiest way charge your 15-inch and 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with a quick and secure connection. Equipped with strong magnetism, this innovative design will perfectly avoid pointless fiddling to plug in cable even in the dark. Now you can spend less time plugging in and have more time enjoying the convenience that Bolt brings to you.
As the world’s first USB-C magnetic cable to properly charge your 15-inch MacBook Pro, the Bolt achieves a max current range of 4.3 Amps with its 87W USB-C power adapter. With a superior built-in chipset, it is faster and more stable while charging your 12-, 13-, 15-inch MacBook, and more.
When Bolt Magnetic Cable is tugged or pulled, it detaches instantly, preventing your device from flying off the table when someone trips over the cable.
Unlike other USB-C connectors, the magnetic tip of Bolt is very small with only 2.2mm which is ⅓ smaller than the tiniest magnetic tip size on the market. It’s so small that you’ll hardly notice it. You can use it as a dust resistant plug to prevent dust from entering the charging port.
Bolt also supports QC3.0 safe charging for your quick charge smartphone which will increase your charging efficiency by 38% from the previous generation that will fully juice up your device safely, quickly and conveniently with black and silver colors for option. Note: Bolt is compatible with QC3.0 quick charge smartphone and QC3.0 charger.
We know your devices take a lot of daily abuse; that’s why we made the Bolt extra durable. Premium neodymium magnets have been added to ensure instant connection, while each cable is put through the tensile test 4,000 times to make the Bolt more durable than any other cable on the market.
With an intelligent recognition system, the Bolt adapts to the different voltages in various USB-C devices. In addition to the MacBook and MacBook Pro, it’ll flawlessly charge your smartphone, speakers, tablets, etc.

As Mac users for more than 10 years, we all love the convenience of the MagSafe, however, this useful feature is no longer available in the new MacBook series. Inspired by our frustrations, we wanted to bring back the MagSafe feature to the lines of MacBooks. For us, the design not only makes life easier but also brings us joy. With years of experience in design, marketing and manufacturing, we are building a cable that is both functional and durable. Thanks to the Indiegogo community, we are proud to introduce the world’s best magnetic cable for the MacBook Pro.
Rather than having a power cable that locks into the laptop that needs to be carefully plugged in every single time, we wanted to make magnetic cables for the new 15-inch MacBook Pro with the same breakaway feature of the MagSafe. Initially, we thought this would be easy to accomplish, but over the last few months, we learned how hard it was to make a magnetic cable that is minimalistic, stable and durable. That’s why you see that other magnetic cables for 87W MacBook Pro on the market are often bulky. In order to make Vinpok Bolt tiny yet functional, we used miniature components to create its incredibly small size of the tip only with 8.8mm. Every component has been highly integrated into and optimized with the design. After multiple rounds of designing and prototyping, we were capable of creating the Vinpok Bolt. We wanted to share our creation with everyone out there.
There is still a lot of work to be done in manufacturing this magnetic cable, but we couldn’t be more happy with how our prototypes have turned out. Your strong support will give us the needed affirmation to place a larger component order and start mass production. With your support, we can bring the Bolt to new MacBook users worldwide. Your contribution will help to fund:
– Mass production tooling
– Necessary components preparation
The Bolt that you see in the above videos is a real, working prototype that operates the same as the final mass production product unit. We have confidence in delivering the best Bolt as promised.
