What is a reliable DC power adapter for the LattePanda Alpha? I have an issue where I have a display connection that runs off USB-C power/input but there is only one USB-C port on the LP Alpha which is being used for the power. I haven't been able to find the correct kind of USB-C splitter that can send power to the LP Alpha and send power/data out to my display from the same port. So I'm looking for a good DC adapter that I can plug into the connection on the board to free up the USB-C for my power/Data out.

Not direct-answering your question, since there is no ready-made commercially available "4-pin DC in" power cable or power adapter.
Only DIY solution is available.

On the other hand, you may want to consider this one (make sure good return policy...)

You should get some kind of reward. Or you are the only other person on this forum.... thanks for the continued help by the way. While that hub still wouldn't help me in my situation... it lead me in the right direction...

I require that additional USB-C that most hubs I looked at didn't have. One for power into the hub, another to supply power to my LP Alpha, and lastly one to supply power/display input to my display. But that is just overkill for just needing a simple splitter, I don't need the rest of the ports, especially at the price it goes for.

USB-C promises a lot of things but comes together with many gotyas.
Oh, by the way, you are paying for the new car smell.
