Charging S340-15IWL via one of the two USB 3.0 ports?

Can an S340-15IWL be charged via the USB 3.0 port with the battery symbol on the right side of the notebook?


And if the 3.0 can be used to charge this notebook could you then use a USB Type-C to USB 3.0 adapter to charge the notebook?

Hi g725s,




The right USB 3.1 Type A is Always On USB 3.0 connector (page 5) not intended to charge the laptop. It is to charge USB-compatible devices when your computer is off, in sleep mode, or in hibernation mode.


Laptop charging should always be done on the left rounded port to avoid shorts on the USB port. It may not have enough chips to dampen larger wattage.




I hope this helps answer your query.
