When you think about the best Apple accessories, you’re probably not thinking about chargers.

But this particular charger – from a Montclair, New Jersey accessory maker called Ten One Design – is as simple as it is clever, and absolutely worth your money.

Take a look.


MacBook computers come with big blocky chargers that stick directly out of the socket when you plug them in.

Apple also gives you a cord to extend the length of the charger, but it still sticks out a lot.

With this adapter from Ten One, though, your MacBook charger will sit flush with the wall or port it’s charging from.

You can also use it comfortably with airplane charging ports, as venture capitalist Hunter Walk demonstrates.

The Blockhead adapter works for every MacBook charger, as well as 10-watt, 12-watt, and 29-watt iPad chargers.

The Blockhead adapter is only $20, or two for $34, on Amazon and Ten One Design’s website. It’s a small investment, but it can save you a lot of space (and annoyance).
