HP 13-ad173cl USB-C PD Portable Charging Battery Bank Bios Patch

HP Envy 13-ad173cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

It seems that HP has disabled the ability to charge these envy laptops via the USB-C PD ports for any charger except their brand wall charger... my laptop came with a  wall charger, I need a portable battery bank charger to work.... can you please patch the BIOS to allow this? I can use a usb-c pd emulator adapter to do it but I'd much prefer to plug straight into the usb-c pd port that my computer is equipped with and charge the dam thing as intended. 

 

Thanks

Your machine comes with USB-C  65 W AC power adapter part #  L24008-001. It is a smart charger to work wit a smart battery (they speak same language). I know people use portable charger with at least 65W and it works  HP has the following product

But even so, it only compatible with HP x2 1012 G2; HP x2 612 G2 Tablet; HP Elite x3; HP x2 1012 G1; HP Pro 608 G1; HP Elitebook x360 1030 G2; HP ChromeBook x360 11 G1 EE; HP EliteBook x360 1020 G2; HP EliteBook Folio G1

The 1.8 star rated product you linked is both out of stock and apparently garbage accoding to reviewers.. Im asking HP to patch the BIOS so I can use the charger of my choice..
