I have an external Sonnet box https://www.sonnetstore.com/products/egfx-breakaway-box-550, and it is not charging my notebook fast enough, e.g battery still draining when the MacBook screen is open. Especially with docker and compiling and IPad as an external display. When the screen is closed, all good enough, e.g 3-4 powers of gaming until the battery is 0.
I tried to plug in external power adapter (native) when eGPU is powered, but MAC does not switch to it, despite Apple states, that it will use a source with the most power.
However, if I change the order of load, e.g. plug power first, then Sonnet, then the battery is charging from the native adapter and all good.
Still, it is sad that need two cables and eGPU is not powering enough
Is there any way to fix it? Maybe to switch power read from another source? E.g. some command in terminal to use the specific USB-C port for power or whatever?
