    does 2016 MBP 61/87W charger charges MB12?
    if so, how is the performance, compare with original 29W charger?

    Sure, why wouldn't they? Unclear if the MB12 can take full advantage of 87w, but mine has no problem pulling 57w+ from my CalDigit USB-C dock (rated at 60w).

    It will charge at the same rate. The charging circuitry on the MacBook is designed to draw 29W.

    MacBook will show 57w charging under System Preferences, if hooked to a stronger charger. I haven't done a timed test to see if it drops down to 29w max draw however.
