A quick addition - I gambled with Tronsmart W2DT (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/ ... mi/32815305147.html) and it works fine with my Chuwi HI13. When I bought it, it was 15 $ only, so it was worth it ;)

The recommended aukey charger and same brand c to c cable works great! Exactly what it supposed to do and without overheating the charger in contrast to almost hot Surface Pro 1 chargers. Nice long cable doesn't slow down charging at all. I don't notice anything bad with this. And I get 2 year warranty via amazon.de and aukey.com. So I registered.

Interesting thing I noticed regarding Xiaomi charger and Chuwi Hi13 - if I plug the charger when tablet is down and then boot it, the power meter shows that tablet gets good charge and I see that battery level is creeping up. However, if I connect the charger when Chuwi is up and running, it DOES NOT register that charger is connected and does not charge! Some USB-PD negotiation does not happen when charger is connected when tablet is running... Do I have a bad charger or something is wrong with the tablet/Windows 10 SW?

What happens to me happens to you. If I put a cargor USB-PD does not trade and do not charge. If I put 12V directly if it charge.

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.

Regards,

That's the same thing I've done. But I would like to know what happens.
