    Good question. I suspect the answer is no. The old TB monitors are not TB v3 that have the power passthrough. That is why it has the y-connector with the TB connection and a separate mag-safe connector for power. I could be wrong, but I really think it won't charge as the power is like ALL going through the power cable on a TB monitor.

  • Not using this adapter. Bus-Powering will not work through this adapter going from older Thunderbolt to newer Thunderbolt.

  • No. The Thunderbolt display provides power via a MagSafe connector; this adapter does not have a MagSafe connector, and there is currently no way to get one on the new MacBook Pro.
