I've got the i7 version 8 gigs RAM and a 256 PCI-E mSSD and bought Targus USB-C Universal Mains Charger 45 W.
I have already updated my bios to the latest version BUT it's still not working with my laptop.
Is it working with Apple adapters???

I posted this in another thread:
I bought a Kensington docking station SD4600P, foolishly without reading the above articles. However, it arrived and on plugging in I got the HP message but it nevertheless worked perfectly. That was for about a week. I have just been away for 2 weeks. On my return HP disables the docking station every time. I think it charges when the PC is switched off but won't work at all otherwise. This is obviously crucial as I can't use my external monitor or various other accessories that I specifically bought the docking station for. Any ideas on how to get around this? I know that it CAN work still - every time I switch it on, I have a brief couple of seconds of it working before the HP message kicks in. So can this be disabled?
I have just run the BIOS update but this has not solved my issues. I have HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13-w0XX.

Update: I accessed HP support directly via online chat. They were very helpful - accessed via remote and enabled the BIOS which was somehow disabled. Everything now works. Unfortunately they did warn that it could happen again.

I know, I've been impressed with the laptop, but not so much with the bulky charger.
I have also purchased an Anker USB-A to USB-C cable, and have tried charging the Spectre 13 G1 with an Anker power bank, this has not worked - doesn't seem to charge to laptop. However, in this case the power outage might be too low to charge?
I am going to try HP Support also when I get home. I have a feeling though, even if the Apple charger works, it might take a lot longer to charge the Spectre?
Let me know if you hear back!
