You must understand that the methods that will be discussed are not a permanent solution for charging your MacBook. You can use them if you believe you are in trouble and require an immediate power source. If you have damaged your charger, you must proceed with the replacement.

By using a C-type USB Adapter

You can always use a C-Type USB cable of an Android device. Simply connect the USB cable to your MacBook and charge it from a power outlet. This charging method is similar to how you charge your iPhone.

However, this charging method can be slow. The charger will be unable to provide the necessary power output. Please keep in mind that this method should only be used once in a while because it can damage your MacBook battery and cause the fan to overheat.

Charging your MacBook Using a Universal Power Adapter.

Charging your MacBook with a universal power adapter is an excellent method. However, keep in mind that if you do not maintain the required voltage coming in, your battery will be dead or overheated.

There are various brands that offer interchangeable pins, making them easily portable.

Super batteries are similar to spare laptop batteries. Before we use it, we need to check to see if they are specifically designed to charge your MacBook model. They come with various charging cables.
