    Hi All,

    Can any USB-C adaptor work in charging the 950? Sorry for my ignorance but I have read that a lot of third party USB-C chargers don't perform well in fast charge, plus I always like to keep to OEM kit where possible.

    I need to get a space mains charger and annoyingly MS Store UK doesn't seem to sell them separate to the handset. I do have the Display Dock which has both a USB-C mains adaptor and USB to USB-C cable in it which is for the dock, but I assume that these will work perfectly (i.e. same charging times, speeds etc). This option stops me from using the Display Dock but TBH I can not see me using it, but it was free with the 250 deal on the UK MS Store.

    Also, I would like to get a desktop dock (ideally with charging option), to sit in my office. Again I see MS don't offer this themselves, so it is 3rd Party I go. Will any USB-C dock work fine?

    Worst case, I will make one myself and use one of the spare USB to USB-C cables I have to fix into a home made dock.

    Thanking you in advance.
    Matt

    As long as you don't use a cheap chinese type-C cable worth 1 pound it should work nice. Cheaper might work, but will be slow esp. with data transfer speeds... Go for the better quality ones, for example:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Belkin-3-1-USB-A-to-USB-C-Cable-USB-Type-C-RRP-25-/112091129251?var=&hash=item1a1926e5a3:m:mN7VNv8YEXQyaQSVccpyYhA

    It must have a good amperage rating and it should be OK. As for the charger, just check that is uses a Quick Charge technology, 3.0 is best, and has as many A's of power as your OEM charger. Same goes for non OEM docks.

    Hope that helps. Good luck
