Does Apple support this cable to be used to charge a Macbook 12" from another USB powered device (Mac/PC/etc)?
I know it might be slow due to the low amperage but would it cause any damage to the Macbook battery?

It would be slow amp. No it wouldn't damage the battery. If your USB device delivers 5W (iPhone speed) it'll take 20 hours to charge. If it delivers iPad speed 10/12W it'll take about 9-11 hours. If it has the latest Qualcomm 3.0 fast charge 15/18W, it'll take about 4-6 hours. Just get a 29W charger. It takes just 2 hours and 11 minutes.
