Says it will work for Mac Book Pro but in compatibility Mac Book Pro is not listed? Please advise if this will work to charge 15" Mac Book Pro.
1 Answer from the Community
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).

Will this work with a late-2011 Mac Book Pro 15 inch? I'm confused about whether it has a thunderbolt port or a mini displayport, or are they the same
