Re: Charger compatibility with the Pi 4 (Single Type C CC resistor on Pi4)

So what can I do if I want to power it from my MacBook pro charger? Use a cheap cable that is not "e-marked" or is there some funny solution I need. I think that will work.

It works, just don't get caught as it breaks FCC certification and is thus illegal / not allowed to be discussed here.

How does one power a usb Bluetooth speaker from a Pi? It's wireless and not related to the issue here.
(plug it into a USB port?) The bluetooth speaker won't have the issue because it is woreless and the only electrical connectionis via the USB port
