Okay, I got my Anker charger and it is my first USB charger that really works. So yes, we really need PD support, not QC.May 4, 2019 at 10:13 pm #151620
Did you change any BIOS settings?
If I plug in any charger to the USB-C, windows tells me it’s charging and the red LED turns on, but no current is flowing and it does not charge.
If I plug in to this charger, windows also thinks it’s charging, but the red LED does not turn on and no current flows.
I tried thunderbolt enabled and disabled, but nothing works.May 6, 2019 at 6:21 am #151638

I tried changing the BIOS, but it seems that the settings are sometimes reset, so it has no sense to change anything.
Maybe your charger just does not support 12V/2A charging, what is interesting, because it should be PD charger. Anyway, my Anker works fine, I use it to charge every smart device I own.May 6, 2019 at 6:53 pm #151642
Ok this is weird… I left the notebook unattended and it completely depleted its battery. It didn’t give any reaction to the power button.
So I decided to give it another try and plugged in the ravpower charger. First the blue led blinked, then the red led turned on and it started to charge at ~14Watt. The charger should be able to provide 12V / 1.5A max. At least it’s charging!May 6, 2019 at 10:18 pm #151646
Some more findings:
It will only charge until unplugged and will not charge again when plugged in.
This is the only way to get it to charge:
- Reboot into bios
- Unplug the charger
- Shortly press the power button so the notebook turns off
- Plug in charger and wait ~9 seconds until red LED at the charger port turns on
- Now it will charge until unplugged. The notebook can be turned on and boot into windows and will continue to charge.
My bios version is 5.12

I can point out one that DOESN’T work (damn shame!) :
unfortunately the 24w Razr RC30-021503 (being used with a “32nd” brand usb-c cable) doesn’t deliver quite enough charge to maintain function and charge the battery. I’m not sure what it’s delivering but my expected time ’til charged is getting longer rather than shorter.
I presume it isn’t “PD” (it promises 12v 2a is an output option), but it’s possible my cable is rubbish or there’s some other snag.
If anyone can think of a fix it’d be most welcome – a folding UK plug is an absolute bonus! I may have to fork out more significant dosh for the mu one.May 14, 2019 at 8:23 pm #151798

I just received my Baseus Quick Charge from Aliexpress (CLICK)
The good news is, it is charging… both directly and also via Ugreen usb-hub
The bad news is, it only charges at 8,5 Watts, really slow, full charge in 3 hours.
I don’t understand why it is not charging at higher watts… any suggestions?
I use a new Blitzwolf TC-17 USB-C cable
