Hp Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-dk0xxx
Microsoft Windows 11

Recently my Hp Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-dk0xxx started smoking when I plugged in my charger to the port. Im wondering if it is possible for my computer to be charged using the type c port on the side. 

The product is once again: Hp Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-dk0xxx

@MGatliff,

 

Welcome to our HP User forum!

 

Yes, you can charge your HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-dk0xxx as it has a so-called "USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ (10 Gb/s signaling rate, Power Delivery 3.0, DisplayPort™ 1.4, HP Sleep and Charge)" port. That means that you can use a compatible USB-C charger to charge your laptop.

 

However, the problem is that most USB-C chargers are too weak -providing lackluster laptop charging wattage compared with a standard laptop AC charger. So, in order to make this USB-C charging method to work for you, you need something like this 100 watt USB-C charger: Amazon.com: Satechi 100W USB-C PD Wall Charger – Powerful GaN Tech – Compatible with 2021 MacBook Pr....

 

Even so, please be advised that it is significantly weaker than your standard 135 watt AC power charger (output:19.5V 6.9A). I believe it could work, but it would take longer to charge your laptop.  Another potential issue could be that such a USB-C charger could get very hot, you'll need to watch out for that.  -Mind you, your USB-C port wasn't exactly designed to function as an alternative laptop charging method.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Kind Regards,
