Hi Doron,

 

Didi your Nexis 5x come with a USB-c to USB-a cable? Does it work with this adaptor? There is not reason why the Nexus should not be charging and as soon as you plug the cable in you should get a message on the phone asking is you want data transfer or charge only.

Have you checked with a different cable as Type-c is still new and a lot of cables do not work correctly (it took me 5 different ones to get it to work)

Also be careful with third-party cables: Amazon clamps down on dangerous, laptop-destroying USB-C cables. They could do a lot more than just not work.
