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.

Strangely, in the end I pumped for the Xiaomi charger, with express shipping, and it does not work at all. I have a dead tablet and no way to charge it.
Gear best are being very difficult with all of this, basically no help, just offered me a discount on a future order.
Is there any reason the Xiaomi charger doesn't do anything? No red light. Could it be the usb c cable?

Anyone reading this should take note: Putting 12 V directly into a USB line can ruin the chip. That's what we're seeing more and more of recently.

Doesn't Xiaomi use Quick Charge? If so, it won't charge this.
Otherwise, if you've used the charger that came with the Hi13, there's a chance you've damaged the USB port and no Power Delivery chargers will work, either.

RAVpower 26800 works, but not 12V 2A, 20V 1.2A.
Anker PowerPort+5 USB-C is same.
