Does the adaptor passthrough the 87w required to properly charge the 15" Macbook Pro (Late 2016)

Does the adaptor passthrough the 87w required to properly charge the 15" Macbook Pro (Late 2016) or will it charge slower, like other adapters on the market (only provide 60w)

    The USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter can only deliver 60W so the 15" MacBook Pro will NOT charge AT ALL if it is also being used heavily. I had this problem. Finally I found support doc HT207256: "MacBook Pro can receive a maximum of 60W of power through the Apple USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter or USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter. For the best charging performance on MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016), connect the power supply directly to your Mac."
