New Spectre 13" x360 got a "flaky" charging / USB port?

Spectre x365
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just bought the new (KabyLake) Spectre 13" x360 and I like the machine in most ways but I wonder if I have received a unit with unusually "flaky" charging / USB ports or if this model in general is built like this?


When charging one has to really "push" USB  C contact into the port in order for it to start (the LED to light up) and if I just move the machine or the charger slightly about it stops charging.


At work I have an Elite X2 that also has USB C charging port but it is much more "solid" in its operation and is not experiencing this problem...


So any experiences - is this an issu with the model or with my machine only?

If you are experiencing this with the supplied Charging cable, then this may be a hardware issue.

I suggest you to ring hp support of your region and get the PC looked at or perhapa taken in for service.
