Hi

Is it OK to power my LattePanda Alpha 864s via the USB-C cable from my LG 32UD99 monitor? According to the specifications of the monitor it provides 60w of power delivery over USB-C. I don't want to risk frying my LattePanda so I need to know that it's OK to do this, from an expert. I assume that the LattePanda will only consume the power that it needs, but need confirmation of this before I try it. I'm hoping to just have a single USB-C cable between the monitor and the LattePanda which will act as both power and video signals.

Thanks for any help offered.

Please check if LG 32UD99 monitor can support USB-C 15V 3A PD mode.
If yes, in theory, it could work.

My opinion:
Sorry, USB-C is such a not-so-stable standard. It is works, it's a blessing.

You'll have to ask LG tech support to see if it supports 15V 3A PD in its PD profile.
