My VIM3 gets in a boot loop (boots a few seconds till Khadas logo and then reboots) when using an original Apple 18W USB-C PD charger (from an iPhone 11 Pro). Is this a known issue?
I also tested an original Apple 61W USB-C PD charger (from a MacBook Pro) and using that one my VIM3 is booting fine. I tested both PSU’s with different high quality USB-C to C cables and all yield the same results.
However, when using the same 18W Apple charger with a Samsung USB-C to A adapter and a USB-A to C cable the VIM3 also boots fine. I think what happens is that the adapter causes the charger to stay at 5V and not activate any PD voltage switching. Perhaps the switching to a different voltage as per PD standards causes a short interruption in the power supply resulting in the VIM3 to reboot?
I would really like to use the 18W Apple charger because I know they are up to the highest safety standards and made of high quality components, and I have a spare one lying around anyways.
Can anything be done to get the Apple 18W PSU to work with my VIM3 while retaining PD functionality?
