Compatible Powerbank for Hi10 X?

Hi, I just get the Hi10x and it’s overall really great !

I just wanted to be able to use it on a Powerbank since the internal battery is the only downside of this tablet (for my use).

I just have a problem to find a matching and compatible Powerbank, since this tablet doesn’t seems to be QC Qualcomm nor PowerDelivery protocol compatible, and still require 12V 2A instead of standard 5V.

Is there any simple solution ? (without messing with a TC66/TC66C PD trigger tool that seems complicated, not reliable, and could be dangerous for the device if wrong used…)

Could Chuwi tell us how they achieve their USB-C charging protocol ?
I won’t believe there’s no other way to charge this tablet that with the provided power supply.

I’ve finally ordered a TC66C (PD Trigger), a PD-60W charger, a PD-60W USB-C cable and a 26800mAh PD-30W PowerBank, and I will give you a feedback if it will really works with the Hi10X…

thanks. it will really help

Hi, i’ve tried a power delivery power bank with an output of 12v/2.5A but it’s not working on this pc.

Hi,

I’ve finally received all my ordered components and have a working solution with an alternate charger or a powerbank.

Here is my gear:

  • PowerDelivery 60W Wallcharger: AUKEY 60W PD CHARGER LINK

  • PD 60W USB CABLE: UGREEN USB C to USB C LINK

  • 26800mAh 30W PD Powerbank: RAVPOWER 26800 USB-C PD 30W LINK

  • PD TRIGGER USB-C: RIDEN TC66C LINK

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…

Cheers :slight_smile:

(PS: a big THANK’s to BIOSHAM for his TC66C advice…)

Hi, what is the standard of the tablet charger? is it PD 2 or it’s a propretary model?
why a standard PD 2 charger is not working?
thank you

It’s doesn’t support PD 2\3. Just direct 12V charge.
