Went on holiday with the Chromebook and thought what's the point of taking Chromebooks charger if I can just take my phone charger for Pixel 3 as it is same USB-C. Today decided to charge my chromebook at 70% power.... Anticipating it will just charge slowly....
However it turns out it doesn't really charge at all - charging led goes on for a second and then goes off, them on again in about 20 secs and off again in a cycle.
I guess there is just not enough voltage/power to charge it with the phone charger? But is it safe to leave it overnight and possibly hope it will charge over long period of time?
