    Would the following work -

    Use a USB-C to multiport USB-A hub coming out of the rMB. From one of those USB-A hub ports, run a USB-A to USB-C cable which would then plug into the stock Apple wall charger. Would this setup allow the rMB to charge?

    I can't tell if the power "flow" works directionally like this?

    I don't believe that would work. The best option is to get the Apple multiport adapter and plug in a USB-A hub into the USB-A slot. That way you can charge using the USB-C port on the adapter.

    Thanks, that's what I figured. I am having a hard time justifying the price for the Apple adapter. I was thinking about trying 1 of these, but they don't ship for a while...

    Looks like it is shipping, but there's no review.
    Too good to be true?
