Sorry, but i have to correct you in this.
We use the HP Probook 450 family in our school.
I installed in all classrooms a usb-c hub,
We charge our laptops with these usb-c hubs (the hub is connected with a 65Watt changer)
No need to connect the HP laptop charger if you can use an usb-c charger for that
(connected to the usb-c hub there is a Touchscreen with hdmi and usb for the touch and utp for network connectivity)

Understand .. but there was a big debate in the HP forums about this recently due to a customer indicating the specs of their PC claiming their USB-C port supported charging but that would not work. The HP Support response was what I provided.
The USB-C port has to be certified for Power Delivery -- which the HP spec said WAS the case, but HP support stood by its comments.
Also, a general problem is that you are usually limited to using the proprietary charger that comes with the PC. Using any other USB-C charger often will not work.
