I have a 2018 MacBook Pro 15" and I wanted to see if I can use it to charge all my devices fast. I want to charge my iPhone, watch, and iPad and I know they all will charge, I just want to know if anyone knew how many watts the MacBook can give out for each.

I found a pretty good answer on 9to5 Mac: https://9to5mac.com/2017/02/13/macbook-pro-diary-charging-hub/

Macbook ports only support up to 1100 ma 5v, so around 5w, which is very low for charging iphones.

Mac can charge iOS devices with 5V2.4A (12W). Macs with USB-C ports can charge USB-C PD devices with up to 15W (5V3A) of power. Ampere on my phone is reporting 2900+ mA and given USB only does 5V, so it is 15W.
