Why two power ports on a budget laptop??

While watching YouTube videos with the volume turned up to the Maximum.
I see my battery drop by about 9% to compile the manjaro kernel package, with screen at 75%, using the pine supplied charger.  No NVMe drive, which would be a considerable extra power draw.

If you are able to use hardware accel, then I don't think youtube video is really that much of a power draw.

PSU in the PBP seems under powered to me.  They could easily get 36W with USB-PD if the regulator could go up to 12V and the rest of circuitry could handle the extra power.
