    Good Day to everyone,

    Can the Dell 5175 be charged with a phone charger? Namely a 3 amper charger, which came with my phone.

    On my lenovo miix 10 tablet I could slowly charge it through the usb, is it also possible for dell?

    I was very disappointed to find that the wiring configuration is different in a standard USB c than the Dell's. So, that would be a no. Even if it were wired the same, it would only charge if it were off. Some have had success with manufacturing adapters by replicating the wiring configuration. This would allow charging in a car, etc. I just bought an inverter with an ac plug for the car and a battery pack with an inverter and ac plug for emergency use.

    The Dell AC adapter label shows 20 volts 1.5 amps (30 watts) or 12 volts 2 amps (24 watts) or 5 volts 2 amps (10) watts. My Kill-a-Watt shows the Dell 5175 uses 15 watts when gaming, 13 to 17 watts when off and charging, 4 watts at idle and 1 watt in sleep. I have been able to power and charge it using a third party 27 watt USB-C charger that supplies 20 volts. It takes about 5 hours to charge the Dell 5175 and keyboard with the Dell charger. If the 5175 does not recognize the charger it will charge very slowly at 3 watts and could take 10 to 20 hours to fully charge. You can find Dell 5175 USB-C chargers on eBay for $20.

    Thank you for the answers!

    It is a shame that the tablet is different than other USB type-C devices.
    I ordered an OEM dell charger at the end, now I just have to wait until my refurb 5175 arrives.

    Does any of you use a Stylus with it? I ordered the Tablet with the slim keyboard, that does not come with a stylus.

    After all, it does have a Wacom screen, I want to use it to the fullest.
