Charging via USB-C Port
#1
On the Spec page of the Pinebook Pro it says "USB-C (Data, Power and Video out)", leading me to think that it might mean it supports data out, power out, and video out, but what about Power in?

I'm curious if I'll be able to charge it via the usb-c port instead of the barrel port.

Thanks for any help!

Edit: Never mind, on the store page it listed more information on the port "USB 3.0 Type-C ports with alt-mode display out and 15W 5V 3A charge". So it does appear capable of charging through the USB-C port.

Yes. I have tested a handful of different chargers from different companies (xiaomi, huawei, apple, samsung) and they all worked just fine.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
