Design Patent: MagSafe Duo Charger

Apple filed their MagSafe Duo Charger design patent under Locarno Class 13.02 covering "'Power transformers, rectifiers and batteries."
The images above cover registered trademark number 2017361. 7M001 that represents the entire device. The remaining six designs (.6M002 to .6M007) below are partial design wins covering specific parts of the whole.
