Ortur Laser Killed Thunderbolt Port on Mac

Has anyone every had a problem with their Ortur laser/computer shutting down mid job. It has happened to me a couple times but this last time, my computer (MacBook) shut down as well and showed a error having to do with the thunderbolt port. Wish I would have saved the error message but now that thunderbolt port is dead and my battery won’t charge. Any ideas? Could it possibly be due to “dirty” power in my shop or a system that is not properly grounded?

I could definitely see it being related to static electricity and grounding. This was a well known issue with the lasers at one point. Do you know if your laser has had the grounding kit installed?
