I bought a used MacBook with identifier MacBook7,1, it's the white 2010 version (A1342). However, it already came with an off-brand charger and the text on it has gone washed off it seems, so I can not reliably tell which charger I would have to buy.

What I do know: I have to use MagSafe 1. According to a datasheet, it may as well be 60W.

Now, I have seen some bricks with USB-C to MagSafe 1 cables and additional USB ports - which would be handy to charge additional devices when on the go. But I am afraid of accidentially picking the wrong wattage.

What do I have to look out for, exactly, when picking a charger? I also live in Germany, if this is any important in terms of outlet, power delivery and alike. I'm a software-, not a hardware guy :)

  • Are you saying your current charger doesn't work? Or you don't trust it and want to buy a new one?

  • It does work, but I do not completely trust it either. I'd like to buy a new and possibly more functional charger to replace it. Dec 4 '19 at 1:50

You can buy one here. It is original charger and it works well. Why do you need type c I can not understand

All you need to know about the charger is: voltage, socket type, magsafe version

    Can you add some detail to address the "What do I have to look out for, exactly, when picking a charger" part of the question? This would make the answer more useful to users from other parts of the world.

  • I have a variety of devices that partially use USB-C. I had originally found this cable (German Amazon) and was curious if I could find a charger that would allow me to charge my MacBook, iPhone and posissibly other devices such as a Switch, Apple Watch and alike. Looks like I will have to carry two chargers, as my search has not been successful so far...unfortunately. Dec 4 '19 at 16:15

    @IngwiePhoenix yes, unfortunately you need to bring a lot of cables... It is a big problem for me also, because I need to bring a lot of cables, adapters, etc :D

This Apple page will help you select the correct Apple charger. The charger for your MacBook appears to be a 60w MagSafe with "L" style connector.
