I just got my Cube i9. When I tried using my Nexus 5x usb-c charger with it, it wouldn’t work. Of course, my phone charger uses 5v, whereas the Cube i9 uses 12v, so I’m assuming that is the main limiting factor here. I have been looking on Amazon for a wall charger with native USB-c, and on several forum posts here and XDA the chargers that are being suggested are a little pricey (upwards 40$) and bulky. I have found a few that are smaller, but still output 12v over their USB-C port. Would any charger with that be able to charge the Cube i9? I’m talking about something like this:
This one for example says 9v-12v—1.5A. Would that be enough to charge the cube, even if a little slowly?November 29, 2016 at 2:51 pm #57833AlberParticipant

I tried with something similar to that charger and it actually charges the tablet, but there are 2 drawbacks:
- The charging speed is quite slow, so if you are using the tablet, the battery consumes faster than what you charge
- When you charge by USB-C a buzzing sound appears, which is quite annoying
Hope that helps you 🙂November 29, 2016 at 5:32 pm #57842BoORD_LParticipant

When you charge by USB-C a buzzing sound appears, which is quite annoying
I’ve only recently began to explore the option of USB-c charging, but I’ve noticed that the buzzing sound doesn’t happen when the tablet is in sleep mode. But when it is awake it is quite loud.
This is using an USB A to usb C cable from a charger capable of QC 3 (not that it should matter). The cable is usb 3.1 and also one of the types that that google engineer has OK:ed.
I would be very interested to know under what circumstances the buzzing do appear. Is usb c- to c any better? Also why would it matter whether it is awake or not.July 23, 2017 at 1:34 pm #69556Luqman HalimParticipant
