Last Updated on Dec 14, 2019

Can I charge MacBook Pro from Apple Display? That’s a very clever and practical question asked by one of my friends. This year Apple released the most expensive Apple Display, primarily focused on professional workouts like video editing, photo editing and more. Other than that, this redefined version of Apple Display, can’t be compared with any normal machine, once you’ll buy or use, I bet you won’t doubt on my testimony.

Back to the question, if you are curious to know is it possible to charge MacBook Pro from Apple Display, the answer is YES. It is possible to charge MacBook Pro (2016 or later), by connecting the Thunderbolt 3 port of the Apple Display to the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) of the MacBook Pro. However, Apple doesn’t recommend you charge MacBook Pro from Apple Display, as it won’t charge as fast as when you charge using the AC adapter.

Personally, I have tried but didn’t get results as I was expecting. Since, the MacBook Pro 2016 or later version, have multiple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), which can be equally be used to charge the MacBook, you might have a question that can I connect more than one charging adapter to charge faster? No, it won’t charge faster even if you plug more than one AC adapter in MacBook Pro.

However, if you plug more than one charging source, the Mac will choose the most relevant power source to charge. So, the conclusion of your question, Is it possible to charge MacBook Pro using Apple Display, is to use the original AC adapter than came with MacBook Pro for reliable and fast charging. Inappropriate or incompatible chargers won’t charge your MacBook Pro as the original one.

If in case, AC adapter is misplaced or not working, at that time, charging MacBook Pro 2016 or later with Apple Display is the best solution until the AC adapter appears to be in working condition.
