Is it really compatible with 16-inch MacBook Pro 2019? This MBP requires 96W - but dock is only able to serve 85W.

Is this dock really compatible with 16-inch MBP 2019? According to specification right on this page, it is able to supply only 85W, but 16-inch MBP requires 96W.

Can somebody try to put 16-inch MBP under a full load (e.g. by video encoding) and check, if it is able to keep battery on 100% while connected to this dock?

    Yes it can charge it and keep it at 100% charge, but other issues listed below is expected:
    - The laptop will not detect display immediately, you have to unplug and replug multiple times, specially when in MBP is in sleep and the connected.
    - External sound system issues specially with Bose Companion, For Example, if you are playing a video in a browser, then pause it and move to another window, sound will never work again until you unplug the complete sound system and replug it in.
