Works great with new 2016 MBP , but should know a few things in advance though...
December 3, 2016
Got this for my new late 2016 13" MacBook Pro with Touchbar. It works great, although I read a few reviews in advance and knew ahead of time about a few things you should keep in mind:
- The female USB-A end is a very snug fit. You should be aware of that when unplugging a USB-A plug - don't pull it by the "cord", make sure you have a good grip on the actual end of the USB-A plug and the nonda adapter in either hand and pull apart carefully. Otherwise, the adapter could break if you pull too hard. Read a review of this potential hazard where the reviewer pulled hard and the adaptor casing stripped away as the USB-A end got stuck.
- The USB-C end needs to really be snapped into your computer port. If you push hard enough, you'll hear a "click" when it's in securely. The light comes on even before this "click", but then it's much less secure. I would imagine previous reviews of intermittent connectivity were when the USB-C part wasn't fully "clicked" in.
- The adapter itself is fairly wide - if you're using this on the new 2016 MBP, you may not be able to fit another USB-C cable into the adjacent port. The USB-C power cord *just fits* next to it, if you have a cable with a wider USB-C end, it likely won't (for example, no way you could fit 2 of these nonda adapters side-by-side). If you have the new 2016 MBP without Touchbar for example (with only 2 adjacent USB-C ports), something to keep in mind, although I can confirm the MBP power cable will fit.
Other than that, it's a great little adapter at a good price to ease the transition to USB-C!
