How Hot Does the Apple MacBook Pro 15" (2018) Get While It Charges?

We use the GRL C2, two FLIR C2's, Mac Chrome browser, and Power Suite Pro Software to analyze how warm the Apple 15" MacBook Pro (2018) gets and how quickly it charges from near empty to 100%. We can see where thermal hot spots develop directly underneath the center of the keyboard which explains why the keys can get so warm when using a lot of the Mac's processing power. We use the GRL C2 to emulate a 100W power source to provide ~84W of power to the Mac and a 7.5W power sink to draw power from the Mac.
