Hi, I've had this laptop since last year and it is awesome... I've only charged using the OEM charger that came with it. However, I'm interested in being able to charge it from a USB C PD 3.0 powerbank when I'm away from an AC outlet
Is this possible? If so, what would I need to purchase?
I suggest that HP update their product page and spec sheets to let everyone know that this laptop has this feature. I also have a 100 watt PD 3.0 powerbank (Flash 2.0 from Chargeasap) so I have greatly extended power wherever I go.
Machine supports USB-C charge using compatible USB-C chargers as mentioned on pages 4,5 and 6 of the manual. Depending on the configuration of your machine (remember it is a CTO machine) it can have 90W or 135W charger.
You are saying you can use 100W to charge your machine that may imply your current PSU only has 90W. That is ok otherwise it is a little bit short, machine would not be able to charge battery at the same time when machine is heavily loaded.
