I have a proper USB-C (45 W) charger supporting 5 V @ 2 A and 20 V @ 2.25 A according to the label. It charges very slow, so I believe it has power delivery version 1 (or the tablet does not support 20 V, or something — I haven’t found any way to be sure). When it is connected, the table creates a high pitch whine, seemingly correlated with amperage.
Does anyone else hear it, and have you found a way to reduce it?April 18, 2016 at 8:08 pm #34170
Chargers almost always make high pitch noises when charging. I never heard a device that made a high pitched noise themself.
Are you sure it is the tablet and not the charger?
My tablet doesn’t charge very well with the usb C. The charging switches on and off when charging with usb c.
Do you have that problem? A way to find out is to have different brightness levels for plugged/battery. The tablet will switch brightness levels when it isn’t charging.April 18, 2016 at 8:26 pm #34172
I’m sure it is the device. The noise seems to originates from the upper left corner, around where the main circuitry is, so it is probably some inductor causing it.
I tried stress testing the charger. In that case the tablet slowly lost energy (~20 mWh each minute, according to BatteryInfoView), and the brightness kept consistent, so there’s no indication that any brownout occured.April 19, 2016 at 2:18 pm #34272April 20, 2016 at 2:05 pm #34424
I tested with usb C charging. I also hear a noises when charging with usb C. But I doubt a normal person would be able to hear it.
This was tested with a regular USB 5v charger from AUKEY with a USB c cable.
The tablet will lose charge when playing CSSApril 20, 2016 at 2:22 pm #34427JasonParticipant

I know this isn’t directly to do with this topic, but is there a status led that turns on when the tablet is charging? If so, does it light when charging though usb c? (Obviously it would when charging though the dc jack)April 20, 2016 at 2:35 pm #34430
Yes, the same charging status led turns on when charging via USB-C.April 20, 2016 at 2:46 pm #34435JasonParticipant
