I have one of the new Macbook Pro's 15" with Force Touch. It's connected to a 27" Thunderbolt Display. It doesn't charge off the monitor. My Macbook Pro 13" with Force Touch does. Any thoughts?

And off to the :apple:store you go ...

Helpful.

OP, try taking a look at this link. It is a discussion based on your issue. Have you recently installed any software updates or have you tried simple troubleshoots like a different magsafe connector?

were you just idling when you noticed it wasn't charging or were you in the middle of doing something graphically intensive?

I noticed that mine doesn't charge off the display when the laptop gets hot.

Hi, well the deference is that when I swap to the Macbook Pro 13" it charges, so I don't think it would be the Magsafe adapter.

It was idling, well sorta idling, wasn't doing anything graphic intensive like photoshop or final cut, but using word, and browsing...

Well you asked for "any thoughts" and you should have 2 magsafe chargers as you have two Macs so IMHO and experience that was a very sensible suggestion and would give you some more information. If that simple action is ruled out then post #2 applies...
