USB-C Charging on GX501

Does anyone know if the GX501 can be charged via USB-C? Say for instance I picked up a generic docking station. As our power supplies are rated at 230 watts, I doubt that a generic docking station has that output, but will it just charge at a slower rate?

Thanks in advance!

Notebooks have to be specifically designed to charge over USB-C. Since gaming notebooks have power requirements exceeding the limits of USB PD (power delivery) it isn't supported.
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…

Thanks xeromist. Good to know.
