Is Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station compatible with 61 watt 2017 Macbook Pro?

Your Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station says it is designed for “60W Charging for MacBook Pro Late 2016/2017 Laptops”. My 2017 macbook pro with Touch Bar (the latest version) uses a 61 watt usb-c power adapter. Could you confirm whether this dock will charge this particular computer? Seems like the 1 watt difference might be an issue.


Thank you for contacting Plugable support! I’d be more than happy to assist you.

The 1W difference will not cause any real world issues, other than it make take a few extra minutes to charge the laptop than if used with the 61W charger that the Mac comes with.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know of other questions.

Thanks again for contacting Plugable support and best wishes!
