    Above equipment. Shouldn't this charger work ?

    When I connect, the screen gets brighter/dimmer on 2 second cycle and the "lightning bolt" over battery flashes on/off continuously.

    Orginal Acer charger works fine in R13. Anker charger works fine in Dell laptop. Dell USB-C charger charges R13.

    Just the Anker charger in R13 that doesn't work. Thanks !

    Welcome to Android Central! From the specs, it looks like the OEM Acer charger is 45W, while that Anker is 30W: https://www.cnet.com/products/acer-c...ook-r13/specs/. It's probably not delivering enough power.

    Thanks for your reply. I thought that if it was lower wattage, 30 W, that it would still charge but at a slower rate?

    I thought that’s what PD specification was all about, negotiating between the charger and the device for different wattages ?

    My Dell laptop has 45 W factory charger, but works fine with the 30 W USBC anker charger

    Sorry, not sure about that. Maybe Acer didn't implement the charging protocol correctly, or maybe it really needs 45W to charge appropriately. I've tried a lower wattage charger on my Pixelbook, and it gives me a warning that the charger is underpowered, and not much happens with the battery level. It might be worth contacting Acer support about it: https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service-contact
