Pinepower Desktop 120W
Hi all,

I received my pinepower desktop earlier this week, and seems to be working fine when just used for charging devices.

However, when using the pinepower to supply power to a Raspberry Pi 4 (or even to a Lattepanda Alpha) through the type-C port, I'm seeing that the output power just drops then returns randomly, resulting in the SBCs to reboot, and that even multiple times per day. 

Initially I thought this was because of me plugging and unplugging the usb cable to charge my pinephone on the quickcharge port, but apparently, after leaving the pinepower desktop on overnight, I figured that the SBCs had rebooted multiple times!

It is strange to see this behaviour, and I would like to know if anyone else is experiencing this issue.

I'm aware the device is promoted as a charger, but I would like to know if this is considered normal.


PS: Feel free to move this message to a different thread if needed, because apparently there is no dedicated forum for the PinePower desktop to this day.
