Connect USB-C Hub that requires power, when Laptop does not support USB-C charging.

Hi all,


I have a HP Elitebook 850 G3.

The Device has a USB-C (standard) port that is not used for charging.

I would like to use this port with a USB-C HUB to connect externally a monitor, USB, audio & ethernet. 

(Example of such a device:


The problem is, that the device needs a USB-C power connection, so that all the connection can work.
But if I foresee such a powersupply and connect the HUB to my USB-C connection on the laptop, it will recieve power over this port.

Will this damage the port, or does this has no effect to the USB-C port on my device and can I make use of the HUB's functionalities?


Thanks for the info!
