    Do docks like these work if you plug them into one of the Studio Display USB-C ports?

    I'm confused about the PD charging -- this device has one USB-C port that supports 100W PD charging.  Is that an output or an input?  I would assume an input and that input would then charge the MacBook?   It really doesn't say in any of the description but since there is no dedicated power input to this device, I can't imagine 100W output.

    It means that if you plug in the power adapter from your computer into the PD port of this adapter it will send up to 100W to charge the computer as well as the data.  This allows you to only need to plug this into the computer and connect everything and charge too.
