    I have an HP Elite x2. I tried it with the Finsix DART with USB-C cable and it does not seem to work. I'm not sure if there's a problem with the charger, the (proprietary) cable or that the tablet is not compatible. Anyone has experience with this combination? Thanks

    The Dart web page has a compatibility checker and even says the Elite x2 is locked and incompatible.....

    could you tell me which bios version that you used and works with apple's 29W Type-C charger?

    Anyone know whether this will also works with Spectre X2 (2016) ?

    Hey everyone, got a Spectre x360 13 inch laptop with the dual thunderbolt 3 on the right and x1 usb 3A on the left. It's a I7 U7500 model. Is there ANY powerbank that will charge it?

    I'm more than happy to buy another hp charger but its the portable power which I'm keen on as well.

    Any ideas?

    Check this video -
    Based on it, there is no problem charging 13" Spectre x360 with e.g. RavPower 26800 PD powerbank. Any Power Delivery powerbank should work therefore (there are few, but they exist)

    I bought the J5Create Charging bridge to use with the Dart and it works perfectly as it somehow defeats the HP block. You can get the bridge at https://www.bestbuy.com/site/j5crea...ffcode=pg199014&ksdevice=c&lsft=ref:212,loc:2.
