Baseus 65W USB C charger

I have the Baseus 65W USB C charger. Unfortunately, it does not charge the PPM.
Is this something that can be fixed in a later firmware update?

Nobody’s quite sure about that yet. What’s the specifications of the Baseus charger, voltage/current wise? Does it include 15V/3A and 20V/3.25A?

One of the threads discussing external USB-C battery packs, same issue:

It has the same specs as the included charger, i.e. it provides both 15V/3A and 20V/3.25A.

The slight difference is that the adapter that is shipped along the PPM supports up to 15V/4A, but we have other USB PD sources that will happily charge the PPM at 15V/3A so this sounds very much like PD policy incompatibility.

I still haven’t figured out exactly what part of the PPM that is responsible for the PD contract negotiation. It may be possible to adjust the negotiations with a regular firmware update, this is something the systems team (in China) will have to answer. I haven’t received my unit yet so I haven’t been able to take a look at it first hand.

For what it’s worth, I have succesfully used this one from Helpers Lab:


Good to know, all data points are useful!!

What do you think, would this work with PPM ?Baseus 65W USB C Ladegerät mit GaN Tech, 3 Ports: Elektronik

Wasn’t this the Baseus charger mentioned in the initial post, or are there multiple versions of the Baseus 65W adapter? So far there are mixed results where some 15V/3A capable PD sources seems to work and quite a few others don’t.

That is the same I have, just in black instead of white.
Does not work. Would be great if it worked as it is really compact/small (compared to included charger).


I wanted to buy new USB cable becasue the one which came with projector is on one side loose (I guess the USB connector has bad dimensions), but when I found the 60W cables are kinda expensive, I’ve noticed this charger with cable included, so I’ve ordered it and hope it will work as a backup charger

Just a thought that I’m sure you’ve tried, could it be down the USB cable? I say this because I’ve been researching portable displays, and some are really fussy about the USB C cable used.

Yes, video requires a full-featured cable (which is the PPM ships with), charging at up to 3A should work with any “high-speed only”/charging cable. For current above 3A the cable has to be e-marked. Lots of confusion because the connectors all fit but the cables behave very differently.

After I also tested it and unfortunately found out that the Baseus GaN 65W charger does not work I bought the YGJ USB-C 65W charger at Amazon.

It works well and charges my PPM in operation with 15,1V / 2,35 A. I was very exited that this charger is also even smaller (shorter and narrower) and much cheaper than the Baseus Charger. :grinning:
The only drawback is that the usb-c cable is fixed and if you want to charge other devices you need an appropriate adapter e.g. UCB-C to Lightning or Micro USB.
Too bad that this is not delivered as a standard Charger with the PPM. :disappointed_relieved:


That sounds like a really low power consumption (~35.5W) for the projector in operation and simultaneously charging. Was the battery close to full in this case? Eco mode/normal mode?

Yes, Eco mode and the battery was almost full.

That makes a lot of sense, thanks for confirming. That means that a 15V/3A supply will be able to keep up with eco mode at least.


I believe that it is also sufficient for normal mode, but as described in the powerbank thread, I suspect that the 45w in presentation mode will probably not be enough and the charger is limited to 15v 3a. I’ll test all modes end of next week.
