    My biggest concern is quality of the device to ensure the safety of the laptop. I am planning to use it with a 2021 MacBook Pro 16. I am worried that Amazon no longer sells Choetech, I don't know if it is for quality reasons. I like the Choetech better, but Anker is a very reputable brand as...

    I own a MacBook Pro from 2017 which originally cost $3,000 direct from Apple. In October, the TSA was doing a random search of by bags during travel and stepped on my MacBook.

    Which USB "end" will be on the Series 7 watch charger?
