Get well soon, for you and your daughter!

Though definitely a good question to ask. I'll see if I can get an answer (unless someone beats me to it).

You are correct, the Quickcharge didn't support on Pinebook Pro.

(02-01-2019, 05:30 PM)Selden Wrote: Thanks Robbie, but Quick Charge is Qualcomm's proprietary charging implementation; I'm talking specifically about the USB Power Delivery standard, as proposed by the USB Implementers Forum. Since its implementation, one of the problems with USB Type-C has been insufficient enforcement, which leads to compatibility issues.

This article outlines some of the pitfalls: It’s 2018 and USB Type-C is still a mess

Using a dedicated power port isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I can imagine a situation where I lose a charger with a proprietary barrel connector while travelling (DAMHIK) and using a USB Type-C charging cable would be a useful fallback. 

Google engineer Benson Leung has achieved some notoriety as a USB Type-C investigator — including destroying some of his devices in Type-C charging testing that went wrong. 
Here is the tl;dr version from Benson: [url=https://medium.com/@leung.benson/usb-type-c-s-configuration-channel-31e08047677d/]USB Type-C’s Configuration Channel[/url]

So, my questions are:
  1. Can the Pinbook Pro's USB Type-C port be used for charging?
  2. If yes, what charging voltage range is supported?

1. yes, the USB type-C can be used for charging
2. traditional 5V range but can quick charge in high current mode (max 4A) when enable.

My T410 is slowly but surely dying after almost 9 years of service and I would love to make the PBP it's successor!

Welcome to PINE64 community. The Pinebook Pro targets to release around late May or early June. We need to respin the Pinebook pro schematic to resolve some minor issue and also deliver prototype untis to key OS developers.

Try not to drink too much Belgian beer while you are there!

After we arrived at FOSDEM my daughter spiked a 40*C fever and I subsequently spent entire Friday at the emergency. On Saturday I had to split time between being at FOSDEM floor and taking care of the kid.

Dear lukasz, wishes your family on getting well soon.

Do we know the physical dimensions of the Pinebook Pro yet? Will they be the same/similar to the current 14" Pinebook?

Also do we have a solid idea of how long a single charge will be expected to last on both devices? I know particularly for the phone we're sitll in the early stages but I am still very curious

Now teh FOSDEM is over and having some time to check out Pinebook Pro thermal profiling and also battery run times. I predict will have 5-6 hours on a single charge and will post my finding on next week.

The PinePhone single charge run time is my concern, able to use the pinephone for a full day is extremely challenging.

The idea of the black keys you something that I like, seems that way we could have different layouts four different encodings. You could target a wider market as well. The end user would stick different stickers for different language configuration that would suit English, Russian or French speakers, so to say.

Pinebook Pro sounds great sign me up, its like Google's OP1 based chrome book but with or without chrome OS we get the choice. Amazing. Good work guys. And Happy New year.

I'm here to express my keen interest in the PBPro : )

As I have user experience with OP1 chromebooks (ASUS C101PA), at this stage I'm mostly interested in the thermals of the PBPro -- what is the TDP and what dissipation surfaces and materials are being considered for the RK3399?
