I just received a new 15 inch macbook pro (2019). I connected it to my external monitor LG 38WK95C-W via the monitor's provided USB-C cable.
It does video/data transfer however since it is a usb-c cable it is also charging my MacBook. I did some research and these are the specs for both my LG monitor and my MacBook:
- MacBook (15 inch): Battery and Power = 87W USB-C Power Adapter
- LG Monitor: POWER: Output 60W >> throughout its USB-C output.
There is no feature to disable power via USB-C cable, under the circumstances will my LG monitor damage MacBook's battery since it provides less Watts (60 W) than MacBook's charger (87 W)?
Also any tips / workarounds to have the USB-C connection only transfer video without providing power?
Thank you for any assistance.
