USB 3.1 Type c possibilities

Before I buy a bunch of useless usb3.1 type c cables I had these questions;

Would it be possible to charge my laptop through this port?
Would it be possible to have video out with an Usb 3.1 type c to HDMI adapter?

    Thanks for your reply. I am aware that it is possible to charge some laptops. But as the article sais:

      'Just because a device or cable supports USB-C does necessarily mean it also supports USB PD. So, you’ll need to make sure that the devices and cables you buy support both USB-C and USB PD.'

    So, I hoped someone could say if this laptop supports this kind of function and in addition the HDMI function through usb 3.1 type c.
  • Hi newhansen

    The laptop's USB 3.1 port is used to connect all USB C compatible devices. In order to use HDMI, you can buy USB 3.1 port to HDMI converter as shown in here

    Why is this port not working for the adapters you indicated? You showed the product, I bought it and it doesn't work. I verified drivers. Using the Aspire A515, the USB 3.1 type C and trying to use the HDMI on the adapter.
