Not at all.

The Pinebook Pro doesn't support the Quick Charge protocol on either the barrel plug or the USB-C (I've tried it), so the fast charger will default to the 5V low power mode. At 5V, the Pinebook Pro will charge using a maximum of 3A. You could be powering it with a power supply that can provide 10A at 5V and it wouldn't matter because it would only consumes 3A. However, powering it up with more than 5V will damage it (5,1 - 5,2V is still within the USB specifications so it's fine and safe to use the Raspberry Pi charger).

It would be safe to use the Baseus GaN 65W Fast USB Charger, but it wouldn't be faster to charge than the original Pinebook Pro power supply (probably even less if it can't output 3A).

The Pinebook Pro is internally limited to 15W, you won't be able to charge it with more power.

Thank you so much for your sharing and appreciate the technical explanation of the power delivery in PBP. I'll try the Raspberry Pi adapter that I have.
And for Baseus GaN 65W charger, I might get it for multiple device charging together with a USB C Hub.
BTW, I'm super please with PBP built quality and I never expect it to be so great.
