    Hey guys! I have a simple (probably stupid) question.

    I recently bought an Anker powercore 26800 to recharge my iPhone and tablets, and just read that it is also capable of charging my macbook as well. This is great news, I just haven't been able to find a simple answer through google to this question:

    What cable to I need to purchase to charge my 2015 Macbook pro with the Anker powercore 26800?

    I'm fairly certain I need a usb-c to usb cable, but I haven't been able to read a single yes or no to that question anywhere online so here I am.

    Thanks in advance for any help, I really appreciate it!

    Only 2015 MacBook (non pro) can charge it because it has low tdp and a USB-C charging port.

    You cannot charge the 2015 MacBook Pro through this.
