Does this adapter provide power to a MacBook Pro 2016 when connected to an Elegato Thunderbolt 2 dock? I want to power my MacBook Pro this way. Thanks

I use this adapter connected to a Thunderbolt 2 cable which is directly connected to an Elgato Thunderbolt 2 dock. The dock is powered by an AC adapter. Can I power my MacBook Pro 2016 this way without its external power adapter? Thanks

  • No, power cannot be provided through this adapter to your Thunderbolt 3 laptop. The product description states the same limitation with Thunderbolt displays: "using this adapter with an Apple Thunderbolt Display requires a power source, because the display does not provide power through the adapter."
