HyperDrive does not charge my iPhone, iPad or USB device properly.

According to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207256

"MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016) and MacBook (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) can power two devices that use up to 15 watts, and two more devices that use up to 7.5 watts. It doesn't matter which side of your MacBook Pro that they're connected to—power is delivered on a first-come, first-served basis.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports) can power one device that uses up to 15 watts and one device that uses up to 7.5 watts."

If you are using a 2016 MacBook Pro with 4 Thunderbolt 3 Ports, make sure you connect HyperDrive before any other device so that HyperDrive can have access to 2 x 15 watts power. 15 watts will go to the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port on the HyperDrive and the other 15 watts will be evenly distributed to the remaining USB-C and 2 x USB-A ports providing 5 watts to each port.

If you are using a 2016 MacBook Pro with 2 Thunderbolt 3 Ports, 7.5 watts will go to the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port on the HyperDrive and the other 15 watts will be evenly distributed to the remaining USB-C and 2 x USB-A ports providing 5 watts to each port.

While 5 watts will be sufficient to charge the iPhone and most USB devices, it may be not sufficient to charge the iPad while the iPad screen is lit.
