I have a brand new 5th Generation X1 Carbon. I want to purchase a Samsung monitor (model: C34H890) and use its USB-C connection for display and to charge the X1 Carbon battery. Here is more information about the monitor:
I have downloaded the user manual and it explicity states that the maximum power delivered via USB-C is 45W. The power adapter that I received with the X1 Carbon is 65W. My question is this:
Can I use the Samsung monitor and its USB-C connection to charge the X1 Carbon, safely? Are there any concerns I should be aware of, other than a possible reduction in charging time?
Thank you in advance,

According to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th Gen) Platform Specifications the laptop could come with either a 45W or 65W USB Type-C AC adapter; the latter being the only one capable of "RapidCharge", so if you are not in a hurry to charge up, you should be fine.
