I have my MBP connected to a LG 34WK95U monitor which has one Thunderbolt port (as well as other video ports) and the MBP charges from the monitor via this port. My issue is that if I leave the MBP connected all the time, it’s charging all the time and gets warm. I’d rather not leave it charging. Is there an alternative to constantly unplugging and replugging? For example some kind of non charging signal cable?
Secondly, I also have an OWC dock, but I worry that if I connect the MBP to both monitor and dock, it’s charging from both sources. Connecting the monitor to the dock does not work. The monitor is 5k2k and the dock supports up to 4k.
Any thoughts and similar experiences would be appreciated.
