    Safe to use 96W USB-C power adaptor for MagSafe2 2015 15” MacBook Pro

    How do MBP USB-C/TB ports stack to iPhone/iPad chargers?

    I am curious, and I can't seem to find the info - when you plug in your iPhone or iPad in your Mac, it gets charged. It's hard for me to estimate how fast this is (I usually leave them overnight anyway) but I'm curious. Is it closer to those old 5W chargers or to the new 20W ones. I'm talking...

    Laptop Cooling Pad USB-C connection issues

    My Macbook Pro with all USB-C ports won't accept any cooling fan with a USB-C Male end. I know they all work because I've used all the ports for other things and still do. But for some reason, they don't like cooling pads. The only option I found that seems to work is this USB-A with two male...

    Did Apple make the HomePod Mini with USB-C so it could also plug into a Mac? I'm just wondering, could there be some feature advantages to doing that? I find the USB-C connection w/ separate power block an odd choice for a device that is intended to just sit and remain in one spot for the...
