The HP Elitebook Folio Notebook PC (W8H05PA) uses only Thunderbolt 3 for USB Type-C ports for charging, making it less likely HP will be restricting which chargers can be used with this notebook.  To demonstrate this, we try out the Google Universal Type-C Charger 60W with the HP Elitebook Folio Notebook PC (W8H05PA).

Using software from Granite River Labs, we are able to study the USB Power Delivery interaction between the Google Universal Type-C Charger 60W and the HP Elitebook Folio Notebook PC (W8H05PA) once they are connected together.

The Google Universal Type-C Charger 60W declares it can support 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 36 watts (12 volts @ 3 amps), and 60 watts (20 volts @ 3 amps) power profiles. 

The HP Elitebook Folio Notebook PC (W8H05PA) then requests 12 volts @ 3 amps from the Google Universal Type-C Charger 60W.

The HP Elitebook Folio Notebook PC (W8H05PA) also declares its own sink capabilities later on in the transaction.

We can then confirm from the above oscilloscope screenshots that the HP Elitebook Folio Notebook PC (W8H05PA) is correctly pulling 12 volts @ 2 amps.

Great to see the Google Universal Type-C Charger 60W (which was originally shipped with the Google Chromebook Pixel (2015)) working well with the Windows based HP Elitebook Folio Notebook PC (W8H05PA).
