Anyone using a 16" MBP with a Dell U3219Q or U3818DW?

16" MBP draws in 94W from a 96W USB-C charger. U3219Q charges laptops at 90W and the U3818DW at 100W. Will either charge the 16" at full output?

Should be close enough to not worry about unless you are pushing your laptop to all-out 100% of the time

I use my LG 4K to power mine and it worksjust fine. I think it only pushes 60W?

U3818DW here,
I don't know if I pushed it to 100% several minutes, but it charges the laptop and provides graphical output and KVM switch without any problem... well, I've one, but is more Mac related. My laptop gets 20ºC hotter when plugged in through usb-c, so I hope, sooner than later, this issues desapears.

How is the fan noise when connected to the monitor? Do you keep your MBP open?

I keep my MBP open and, to be fair, the fan doesn't sound too much but, starting at 60ºC, is easier to start listening the fan sooner, rather than starting at 40ºC

Thank you for the feedback.

Could you check under "System Report" > Hardware > Power.

" AC Charger Information:"

How many watts of power your 16" inputs from your U3818DW's output?
