It’s not as “Plug’n’Play” as I would have liked… but it’s working pretty well and reliably.
For the wallcharger it’s safe and easy (and after a while you can do it within 30 sec):
- you have to set the two little switches (Power ON and PD Trigger ON) on the PD Trigger device
- then plug it in the wall charger…
- push The button K2 (5x) time to cycle through the main menu until the manual Trigger Menu…
- then K2 long press to enter the manual trigger menu,
- then Cycle with K2 through all the Trigger option until “PD 2.0 Trigger”
- then K1 to select
- then remove the TC66C Device from the wallcharger and replug it (for a hardware reboot)
- then you have to Cycle with K2 through the “PD 2.0 Trigger” menu until 12.0V (there’s 5V/9V/12V…)
- Then you can plug your USB cable and the tablet and it’s working.
The charge works with the tablet on or off… and automatically stop itself when finished exactly the same than with the provided proprietary Chuwi Charger
For the powerbank it’s allmost the same, but you need to have your tablet already plugged in with the USB-C cable before the TC66C hardware reboot, or the powerbank internal security won’t let you force a PD Trigger without a load… that means that you have to cycle through the “PD 2.0 Trigger” menu with a connected device and cycle through the different voltage options with an attached device … so if you accidentally select a higher Voltage than the needed 12.0V you may destroy your tablet… SO BEWARE !!!
For information, the measured charging current (Under 12.0V) is around 1.8A,
so a 30W PD Wall charger should probably work as well…
(PS: a big THANK’s to BIOSHAM for his TC66C advice…)
