This information pertains to using a new MacBook or MacBook Pro.

- connecting a powered-down Switch to a MacBook or MacBook Pro will charge the console
- no option to choose which system you’d like to charge through the USB-C cable

There's talk that a turned-on Switch actually powers the MacBook itself, but this has been unconfirmed. Long story short, if you want to charge your Switch off your MacBook, make sure the Switch is turned off.
