    Hi all,

    I bought the 15 inch 2016 MBP with touch bar last week. I travel from time to time and I am wondering if there's a more portable usb-c powerbrick I can buy to charge it on the go? What's the minimum voltage required to charge the 15"?

    I can use my wife's MacBook 12" powerbrick with usb-c cable to charge it, that one's lighter than the 15" charger.

    It charges slower but I don't really mind. My second question is if charing the 15" with lower voltage powerbrick does harm to the battery?

    Thanks in advance!
