Yes you really require a tester that can provide ac to emulate mains. However some properties are separated from the ground, in that it was the ‘fashion’ in some older properties to ground the negative line. Which can add a small ‘signal’ to other devices in the same or neighbouring property.
I have a couple of these 65 watt Lenovo chargers I use with it, one of which came with an X1 Carbon and the other I bought: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-4X20M26268-Included-Original-Packaging/dp/B06Y2YPWSM/ref=sr_1_8?crid=3SUBD52YXC9UC&keywords=lenovo+65+watt+x1+charger&qid=1672925495&sprefix=lenovo+65+watt+x1+charger%2Caps%2C99&sr=8-8
They are good quality and not expensive.
I am using an Anker 737 charger for direct charging and a Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Dock (Gen1) for docked charging. BOth work as expected. I skipped the Framework Charger because of all the charging cord issues, and its maximum power delivery rating.
I’m using this Samsung multiport charger (so I can charge my phone too if I need to): Amazon.com
im using the one that came with my Lenovo T580. its a 65W USB-C charger and seems to work perfectly fine with my 11th gen framework
This one looks good, how well does it perform?
Does it have tingling leakage, since it isn’t grounded…?
The ‘UGREEN 65W USB C’ B08CDDSVN4 from https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08CDDSVN4?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details&th=1 works fine here (Ryzen 7).
Confirmed by being able to flash the BIOS (battery at ~70%, charger connected).
I think this is the ultimate test, not just ‘charges’ or ‘charges while powered on’, as another USB-C PD charger I had here, that said it supported the same wattage, volts and amps did not work for BIOS updates, though it was fine as a daily driver.
https://www.wavlink.com/en_us/product/WL-P1101.html I am using this one and it has no coil whine that I can hear. Works fantastic!
It’s ok, I have not noticed any issues
HP Thunderbolt Dock G2
In fact works better with my Fedora 39 Framework laptop than with my work Windows 11 HP Elitebook 840 G9, which often has trouble making sense of the 2 external monitors.
But I noticed after leaving the Framework charging via the Dock for more than 24 hours it was unusually warm.
Anyone know if I should be worried about temperature while charging? Haven’t found any such comment in the community.
I’ve been using an Anker Nano 3 when out of the house, which generally works. At home I use Lenovo USB-C charger from my old laptop. I forget the wattage.
I’ve been using an Anker charger without any issues. It is pretty good as a travel charger with 3 ports to top up laptop/phone/watch. No ground prong on the North American version, but so far has not been a problem.
Model Number: A2145
Anker 736 Charger (Nano II 100W)
I’ve been using Lenovo 65W and 100W USB-C chargers along with a Belkin BoostCharge Pro 65W one.
right now on Amazon and Walmart the UGreen 140W (single port max 140W) is going only for <$70, I got one for my incoming Framework 16 especially since I don’t plan to have dGPU module.
