Now that the new MacBook Pro is available, it’s time ⁤to learn ⁣how to charge it. With Apple’s move to its ‌new USB-C charging port, many users are ⁣wondering how to properly charge ​their new MacBook Pro. Fortunately, the process is‍ simple and straightforward.

The ⁢best way to charge your‌ MacBook Pro is to use its USB-C⁤ type charging port. This ⁢type of charging port ⁢is‍ designed ⁢to provide charging power efficiently ⁤and ⁤quickly without compromising the safety of your device. To charge, simply plug ⁤the charger into⁣ a power ⁤outlet, then connect the USB-C port of ​the charger to the MacBook Pro.

Alternatively, you can also use the original ‍85W MagSafe Power Adapter that you received when⁢ you purchased the MacBook Pro. This adapter connects to the Macbook Pro through the MagSafe Power connector, and functions similarly to ‍the USB-C‍ type charging port. Simply connect the adapter to the Macbook ⁤Pro and plug it into a power outlet ‍to​ start charging.

When it comes to charge times, the USB-C port typically charges‌ MacBook Pros much faster than MagSafe Power Adapters. It takes approximately three hours to‌ fully ⁤charge a MacBook Pro with a USB-C⁤ port, while the MagSafe Power Adapter takes closer to⁢ four hours.

It is important to remember that the Apple 45W USB-C Power Adapter will not charge your MacBook‌ Pro as it was designed to charge the 13-inch Retina Display‍ Macbook. The correct power adapter for the MacBook Pro is the original 85W‍ MagSafe ‌Power Adapter or USB-C.

When it comes to keeping your MacBook Pro charged, it is important to make sure you purchase the right power adapter ⁤and also ⁤to follow the instructions for charging your device. With the proper use and adherence to the instructions in this guide, you can keep your MacBook Pro running ‍at ‌its best and prevent any potential damage from incorrect charging ​methods.
