It will be slow, as the voltage is 5v and I think the MacBook takes 14.5 from the official charger. So this will be the same as as iPad charger.
Can someone explain amperage/wattage
The macbook charger is 29 watt.
This puts out 60 watts (http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Famil...8&qid=1430885787&sr=8-17&keywords=usb+charger)
and this one 40 watts (http://www.amazon.com/40-Watt-Deskt...F8&qid=1430885885&sr=8-6&keywords=usb+charger)
Ideally I'd like to get a charger that can charge the macbook, a phone and a watch along with an external battery. (For travel purposes)
I used to think a charger is a charger is a charger (and bought the cheapest one I could find with the same rating) until I read the post below. Bottom line, a charger is more than wattage or aesthetics.
Apple chargers on an o-scope
This is not directed at the specific products posted but I thought would be relevant on any discussion on chargers.
Those are also 5v chargers and so will be slow.
I doubt anything already released will work as they're all aimed at tablets.
If you plugin a charger with a higher voltage, wouldn't that break the macbook? Or is that only with different Ampere?
Or is that an old phenomenon with legacy equipment which never happens anymore?
If the official charger produces 14.5 V, then none of these chargers are appropriate for charging the rMB.
