Charging a Chromebook Plus with a Pixel charger

JUMP TO SOLUTION

he users manual says to use the approved chargers, but Support tells me that the CB Plus supports "Power Delivery" charging. Ideally, this means that I can use my Google Pixel charger. The output numbers on the Samsung charger are different than what is listed on my Pixel charger, but that is (thoeretically) cool about PD chargers - they're supposed to adjust the charging to the device. 

 

Has anyone used a Pixel charger with their Chromebook Plus? It takes up less room in my travel bag and I'd prefer to carry it than both chargers. 

 

Samsung charger output: 1.5V 2A / 9V 3A 5V 3A

Pixel charger output: 5V 3.0A / 9V 2.0A

I have not tried to use one myself, but I have a few friends that tried and it wasn't very successful for them. It charged, but it took a lot longer than normal to charge.

Look closer at your Samsung charger.  It states 15v 2A, not 1.5v.  Then take a look at the input voltage on the bottom of your DB+.  It wants 15v 2A to charge.  So, to answer your question: No, your Pixel charger will not function properly.
