Yes. This adapter has 3 variable voltages. 5v (which is what the AirPods pro use as well as iPhone), 9v (iPad) and 20v (MacBook). It will automatically select the correct voltage and take as much current as it requires.
I have iphone 11, usb ctype cable and macbook pro also with 61W charger.
1. Can I use 61W charger(macbook pro) to charge my iphone 11 with usb c type cable ?
2. Is extra wattage gonna harm my phone ?
3. Which charger is best recommended for iphone11 ?
1. Yes you can :)
2. No, its USBC PD so it will only take what it needs.
3. For fast charging all of them are compatible, but the 18W USB C charger is the cheapest, but again for your case you don't need to buy an adaptor as you already have one, you just need the cable in case you don't have it.
I have an iPad Pro (3rd Generation) can I use this charger and fast charge my iPad?
Sure, but even the 30W will fast charge, the 61W will only "run at" 30W when used with the iPad Pro
My Mac says it is charging when connected to the 60W charger but I am wondering if it will end up trickle charging when using decent workload tasks? Is the 80w given in the box more than what is needed to charge the computer or is 80w the recommended power input?
It will charge but slower, when travelling I sometimes use a 60W 6-Port charger.
Yes, you would need a lightning to USB-C
Ive had different responses from different Apple Advisors, but this product shows as compatible. What is the maximum Wattage the MacBook Air 2018 can draw?
61w definitely charges my 2018 MBA quicker.. thats's all i know.
