    Need a second charger. All these crazy usb c stories/specs makes it hard to find. The stock apple one is huge and I'd rather keep it at my house/desk and use another smaller one for travel purposes only.

    What do you use?

    any ideas about this charger? Will it work with the 15 MBP?

    That won't work for a 15" MBP. You need a 85W charger.

    You can use chargers with under 85W, but they'll work more slowly, and it's possible that under very heavy load you might draw on the battery even when plugged in. The main thing to be careful of is that it's a high-quality product, one that doesn't get too hot, and hopefully one that's been well tested by others, so it won't fry your Mac.

    Thats what I figured... the best two charger I found so far and are compact are:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D8C6ULO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A294P4X9EWVXLJ

    and

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0188PAD00/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER


    anyone use any of the above?

    Just fyi, you can search the Amazon reviews for macbook pro and get just the reviews that mention it. The search box on the main product page is on the right under the excerpts from recent customer reviews. The box on the results pages is just above the results. (If you add 15 to the search you'll miss some of the relevant results because not everyone says which size they have.)

    Looks like the first one will work, but you only get 45W. That's typical for a 60W hub, which saves 15W for the ports. The second one only has one review in the search results, and it says it doesn't work.

    You can search the questions too, but I haven't tried that.

    thanks!

    I wonder is there are any chargers via KS or direct sales that any user has been using.
