OK, after some trials and tribulations with various chargers, as well as reading some horror stories (https://www.engadget.com/2016/02 ... el-usb-type-c-test/) and going through very thorough reviews (mostly - negative! ) of USB-C components on the market today - https://www.amazon.com/gp/profil ... ;ref_=cm_cr_rdp_pdp, I decided to go with the "low-tech" solution.|
So, the problems that most readers try to address are (a) the charger that comes with Chuwi Hi13 is too bulky, and (b) the need for a back-up charger in case the original one stops working. My solution to this problem comes in two pieces:
1. A 12V 2A small size power adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ... 0?ie=UTF8&psc=1
2. Barrel connector to USB-C adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ... 0?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Basically, this solution is similar to the one that comes in the box (dumb 12V power adapter with USB-C terminal), but much smaller and lighter. Working fine, charges my Chuwi as fast or faster than the original brick.
