ElitBook 850 G8
Microsoft Windows 11

The PC charger provided charge via the USB-C port and therefore occupies one of these ports. According to the specifications the PC should have two USB-C ports available. With one of these ports occupied by the charger this is not the case. Further more I doubt that enough power can be provided via the USB-C port to both charge the PC and provide power to all connected devices. This faiurly expensive PC should be delivered with a proper charger that leave both USB-C ports available.

@12345612oxelosu -- can  a USB-C to USB-C extension cable, such as:

 

   UGREEN USB C Extension Cable USB 3.1 Type C Extension Cord Male to Female Extender Thunderbolt 3.0 C...

 

be used to connect one end to the computer and the other end to the power-adapter?

The ends of this cable might be physically smaller than the connector at the end of the power-adapter.

 

Furthermore I doubt that enough power can be provided via the USB-C port to both charge the PC and provide power to all connected devices.

 

Really? Have you experienced this problem?

What devices will you be attaching that will draw a lot of power? External 2.5-inch disk-drive? A keyboard or a mouse or a USB stick or web-camera draws very little power, and a printer/scanner has its own power-supply.  If you need, you could purchase a "powered-USB-hub". It provides more power to the connected devices, because it has its own power-supply.
