PSA: Warning about Pinetab Quality
#5
I use a dump power supply with 5V 10W, made for something else. I use the barrel connector, but usb also works. The charging current/voltage is handled by the internal power chip, not the charger. So if the "charger" can deliver 5V and minimum 2A, all is good.

But I would not trust a charger with USB-PD standard (what can deliver up to 20V) on the PineTab, although it should work.

There is a threat on swollen battery on the PinePhone, so I would guess it's battery related (or heat issue (design)).
Hope you find a good solution with Pine64
