The Macbook Air M1 ships with a 30W charger. Will it charge faster with higher watts, 61, 87, 96?
On my Air M1, I have seen a bit more than 40 watts charge in Coconut Battery when using my 60 watt charger; which is currently on sale for less than $20:

Confirmed on mine too. Charges faster with 60 watt MBP 13 Intel charger. No faster charge with 96 watt adapter from my MBP 16. First pic is with 30 watt stock charger, 2nd shot is from 60 watt Intel MBP 13 charger
