    Hi all,
    As you may aware, the PA came with the MBP 13' 2017 NTB model is a 29w PA.
    To maximize the performance of the rig plugged, should I buy a 61w PA or a 87w PA instead?
    Has anyone tested how the max output of PA affects the performance of the MBP?

    Pushing more power at it might charge it faster, but with the side-effect of negatively affececting the long term health of the battery. Performance won’t be affected at all.

    In the box you should have the 61w and not 29w that is for the 12" macbook

    Didn't even notice he said he had the MBP not the MB, haha. But yes, fair point too
