Help! I keep getting this warning from Samsung Settings when I try charging my Notebook 9 Pro (15") via USB C.
"Auxiliary power is connected. Please connect a rated adapter because the system can be discharged by using more than 10 W"
The notification is worrisome since this is written in the manual.
Charge the battery according to the instructions in the manual.
Failure to do so may cause an explosion or fire.
The last thing I want is a bomb on my lap! I also don't want the battery to discharge since that would be counterproductive.
For now, the laptop appears to be charging according to Windows. I'm at 26% battery and it will take 2 hrs 43 mins, so it is very slow compared to the proprietary charger that came with the laptop.
It's unclear what "rated adapter" means for the Notebook 9 Pro. I've tried a variety of chargers. (30/27/15, 90, 5 watts) There was a notification in all cases. It's the same for an external battery as well.
Since it's annoying to get the notification, I've turned off the notification banner to keep it from popping up. I still keep the notifications in the action center just in case there are different notifications I need to know about.
There is not a "Samsung certified charger" for the USB-C charging option. In the first place, the laptop is advertised as being able to charge through USB-C via a portable battery or a cell phone charger.
While it appears to be working, my main concern is that it shouldn't be giving me an error message.
Typically the Samsung Certified Charger you mentioned is simply the charger that came with the device. Samsung does not recommend using any other chargers for regular use. If the unit recognizes a charger has been connected that does not use the same power ratings as the laptop accepts, then this error message appears.
