In the spirit of this thread... using the USB cable and a different power supply... This may also be a viable option... Anker PowerCore 26800... it's a high capacity USB powerbank, ....

I found a "USB Hub" 5V/4A in-line power supply on Amazon. Does a nice job of charging the Pinebook even when running Firefox. It has a standard 3.5/1.35mm plug so it needs no surgery to be useful, and you can get it delivered a lot more quickly than obtaining another 3A wall-wart supply from Pine64.org.  The extra ampere rating seems to make a big difference in charge times. I would that it had longer cords on each side of the supply block - I think altogether it is a meter long. Though it appears well made, I haven't had it more than a day. We will see how long it lasts.
