    This might charge a MacBook Pro, but the 2017 15" comes with an 87W charger in the box (almost 2.5 times as much power), so while it would be able to send compatible power to your MacBook it would be very, very slow compared to the wall adaptor. Also, while it would at least deliver power to the MacBook Pro, but the Mac might be using more power than it is receiving - also known as not charging.

    If you want more information, I would suggest looking up an explainer for USB Power Delivery or PD (aka USB-C PD or USB Type-C PD).
