On the web I have found that in this specific notebook USB-C can be used for chargin. I have bought Baseus GaN 2x Type-C + USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 Power Delivery 3.0 SCP 5A AFC 65W charger and 100 W PD USB-C cable, but laptop is not charging via this port. Any idea why?
Also: this USB-C port can be used to connect external display? I have graphic tablet, but again when I connect it to this port nothing is happening.

They are not compatible. The following dock is compatible with your 440 G6 machine

Hmm, in some way u gave me the answer but...
Does this USB-C port can be used to connect to external display? or I should use external dock?
Other thing is, that I was asking about charger and you posted to buy USB dock ... How the dock will charge my laptop?:)
anyway what needs to be special for charger that it has to "compatible" and what for to buy dock when I have USB-C? maybe u want to say, that this USB-C it is just interface (outside), inside it is just crappy HP invention ?
same charger as mine, so this is clearly HP problem (drivers, UEFI firmware etc)
Can't belive that HP can't fix this problem since over 6 moths!

Hi there. Sorry to bring up this topic again. Hope u r well. Just saw your post here about charging HP GAN charger on the usb type c port. I have 65w and 100w macdodo GAN charger, but both cannot charge my HP Zbook 15 G6. The error i received is smart AC adapter power output is too low for this computer. May i know whether u got your GAN charger to charge your HP laptop? Also, i tried the youtube tip to reset the battery, but it didn't work on my Zbook. How about you? Did it work? Tq in advance

Did u read this: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06473057 ?:
- If USB-C Power Delivery does not meet minimum requirements, ZBook battery charging may not occur, even if ZBook is powered off.
- Sufficient power for charging varies by ZBook model, but in general is: 27W for 14u/15u, 65W for Studio and Create, and 90W for 15/17.
Probably this USB-C charger is to weak. IMHO: usb-c charging in HP laptops is a crap. This is my last laptop from HP, why? Cos of poor battery, on my previous laptop (Toshiba Portege) I was able to work arround 6 hours - wifi/word etc. On this HP, if I will do arround 5 will be good. I bought it, cos it had nice look and USB-C charging and toshiba is not toshiba anymore.

Hi there, thank you for your response. My laptop is Zbook 15 G6 , so from your response, the minimum is 90W. I did charge it with a Mcdodo 100W charger, and it still doesn't charge. I used a usb tester, and it only registers 0.04W (20V, 0.002A) as per attached picture. Quite frustrating
