to plugging in a single cable for your charging, video, USB and sound it's hard (and regressive) to go back to multiple cables
USB 3.0 offers only 5V at 500 mA (USB 2.0) to 900 mA (USB 3.0). That's 2,5 W - 4.5 W. That's not very much when it comes to charging batteries. Your battery will most probably need a higher voltage and also a slightly higher current, both which USB can't deliver.

Just for comparison: I charge my 5000 mAh batteries with about 25V and 5A (= 125 W) and it still takes an hour.

Edit: The battery of a Macbook Pro is rated at 10.9V, 5500 mAh. USB is a little underpowered for that.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
