    Actually, I'm not sure what any of they are but I noticed they weren't mentioned in the description. There are some protocols which may be different than these that ensure it turns off when the device reaches 100% so that it doesn't overheat or overcharge. This sounds like it just kept going which I would guess is why it got hotter.

    Well the pen messing up with the charger plugged in completely turned me off. My battery app actually showed it as charging at 0 mwH but my device was getting hotter. I already returned it. I'll be looking for an official asus charger that uses the 3.0x1.1mm tip.

    Ordered this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H82F9G2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They say it's genuine and it either ships from TX or Amazon and the seller has decent enough reviews. Going to try my luck again.

    That looks like it should work but there is also this:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KJ6I592/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_10?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AXZD0AJNQX5UZ

    I originally wanted a usb-c adapter and ordered this:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KLH1R0S/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    however the first got lost in china and I'm not sure the second hasn't too. If I ever get it I will let you know if it works.

    Raised their price and eliminated the $100 student discount. For $499, I think this is tablet is a no-brainer. For $699, you probably need to think about another whether another hundred or two is worth a SP4.

    If that doesn't work, I will probably try this one:

    https://www.amazon.com/dodocool-Cha...473206662&sr=8-14&keywords=macbook+12+charger

    The USB-C spec has been incredibly irritating so far because so many people are non-compliant. Half the cables don't work and half the chargers don't seem to meet spec. This seems like the best one out there that can charge a macbook and by extension an Acer Alpha Switch 12. I'd prefer to get something like this because of it's dual ability to charge another usb-c device or a micro-usb device with the proper cable. I'd love to not have to lug around so many cables.

    I'll report on the asus and then report back again if I have to return that and get this USB-C charger instead.

    haha..they should have just packed this with a 21st century charger like asus and even lenovo does now..(apple of course too) instead of making us go through all this..at the least they should offer a travel charger from them directly.
