Just purchased the PowerExpand thinking that it would support my work from home set up.
- USB-C power cable (from laptop) went into the PowerExpand hub
- USB-C Hub cable went into laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad)
- HDMI from monitor went into Hub
- USB mouse went into Hub
Everything worked except the laptop did not charge. Did I get the wrong product?
The User manual mentions something I don’t fully understand.
“We recommend using a 60W PD (Power Delivery) charger: 48W for charging the laptop and 12W for powering the hub.”
I just checked the ‘blackbox’ on the Lenovo power cable and it says it’s 45W. Is that 100% the issue?
