    I can confirm this adapter will not power the new MacBook Pro's. However all the usb and ethernet ports functionality works.

  • No. The Thunderbolt Display provides power through a MagSafe connector; this adapter does not have a MagSafe connector, and there is no way to get one on the new MacBook Pro.

  • You can connect for video, USB 3, Gigabit Ethernet, and Thunderbolt extension. You can't charge with the Dusplay.

  • Possibly, but you're better off connecting another USB-C cable for power as Thunderbolt 1 and 2 don't deliver the power the MacBook Pro needs.
