X1 tablet (3rd gen) with third-party USB C charger



Does anyone try to charge X1 tablet (3rd gen) with a third-party USB C charger?


I recently bought a Aukey USB C charger (USB C + 2USB A, 60W PD3 on type C, ) which support 20V3A output. When I connected to my X1 tablet, there was an error message "the power is not enough and can only charge the computer when it is in sleep mode or off". However, when I connected it to X1 Carbon 2018, it charged well and the charger is recognized as a 72W USB-C charger.


Do you use a third-party charger? Does any model work with X1 tablet 3rd gen?

My experience is this tablet is very finnicky with what it will allow to charge it. The only consistent charger beyond the included one I have found to work is the Dell 9370 charger. Oddly is is only a 45 watt charger yet still works!
