Chargers, Cables, and Video Adapters

COVID-19 Alert

Laptops are not available for checkout. UC San Diego students are also eligible for the campus's Laptop Loaner Program, which enables students to request a laptop, hotspot, or other technical support. Items will be checked out through the end of the quarter. Please see Library Services During COVID-19 for a complete list of available services.

Use this support page to determine which charger is right for your Apple product. High wattage chargers may safely be used on lower wattage-rated Macs (e.g., an 85w charger can be used on a 45w-rated Macbook Air).
