Apple Releases New 70W Power Adapter Alongside 15-Inch MacBook Air

Apple today began selling a new 70W power adapter with a single USB-C port on its online store. Priced at $59, Apple recommends pairing the power adapter with the new 15-inch MacBook Air and various other MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models.

70W Apple Power Adapter
From the product listing:

The 70W USB-C Power Adapter offers fast, efficient charging at home, in the office or on the go. It’s compatible with numerous USB-C devices and charging cables. Apple recommends pairing this power adapter with a 13-inch or 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip, a 13-inch MacBook Pro (2016 and later) or a 14-inch MacBook Pro. Use it with MacBook Air with M2 chip models to take advantage of fast charging, so you can go from 0 to 50 percent charge in around 30 minutes.

Apple has stopped selling its previous 67W power adapter, although it is still listed as included with the 14-inch MacBook Pro for now.

70w vs the old 67w adapter. They've shrunk it quite a bit.

Honestly, considering the battery life of the MBA, I really don‘t need fast charging. I went with the dual charger instead, so I don’t need to carry one for my iPhone as well.

Yeah I'm good, thanks. This bad boy ('https://www.amazon.com/Charger-Anker-Adapter-Foldable-Compact/dp/B08T5QN2TR/ref=sr_1_16?crid=N3QBVCIGS820&keywords=anker%2B7ow%2Busb-c%2Bcharger&qid=1686002257&sprefix=anker%2B7ow%2Busb-c%2Bcharge%2Caps%2C191&sr=8-16&th=1') from Anker already does 65w at a third the size and 15 bucks less.
Give them time and they'll have a 70w model in the same form factor.
Apple accessories are a joke and honestly they should just give it up at this point.
