[Hi10 Pro] Charging ports

Hello,

does anyone know whether the Hi10 Pro is supposed to allow charging through either of its USB ports, or does it only accept charging through the USB-C one? I'd like to buy an extra wall charger and I'd like to know if I can get a regular micro-USB one, or if I need to get the USB-C one. I tried a known-good-quality micro-USB cable with the official charger I got with the pad, and it didn't work, so now I really don't know.

If it accepts charging only through the USB-C port, it's a really unfortunate design decision - one couldn't charge it and use external accessories at the same time

@Chuwi support:  What is the required charging profile?
The charging device I got with my Hi10Plus is mechanically defct and I need to replace it.

Since only the usb-c port can be used with an extra 1mm longer connector, I need to know if this device uses USB-Power Delivery, and if so, which profile?

Thx

@yamcenutzer: I found out any USB charger capable of at least 2 amp output, together with a proper USB-C cable, can charge the device. My tablet draws around 1.8 amps when charging with screen on (idle cpu), 1.5 amps with screen off. I'm using a cheap USB charger capable of 2.4 amps and it just works.
