    So I finally found a nice way to transfer files from/to my cb over wifi. I used an app called Xender, I installed the app on my phone and then on my cb, used the 192.168..... number on Chrome to access the files. Theoretically the app should work on android side of my cb, didn't tried it yet.

    Edit: The app isn't compatible with my cb, it froze whenever I tried to launch the app.

    I just use a thumb drive. Seems less complicated.

    I wish I could help - for my old CB I just bought 2 off of Amazon that said it would work.

    according to your user manual, on p.60, it says the power cord set must have a capacity of at least 7Amps.

    the specs for USB-C are
    ...All USB-C cables must support a minimum of 3 A current (up to 60 W @20V) but can also support high-power 5 A current (up to 100 W). from wikipedia:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB-C

    and, phandroid has this article: http://phandroid.com/2017/05/10/deal-aukey-amazon-accessories/

    even if you don't want one of the listed adapters, you should be able to use them for specs. and when the print on an adapter is too small to read, I take a hi-res picture on my phone and blow it up....

    EDIT: more from the user manual:

    Battery
    Fully charge the battery using the AC adapter before using the
    computer for the first time.

    Use only Samsung-approved AC adapters, batteries,
    and cables. If you use unapproved adapters, the battery
    cannot be charged or it may explode or damage the
    computer.

    none taken, NetB; from your picture of the adapter, it looks sophisticated, since depending on the 'request' from the device, it'll adjust the voltage and amperage. kinda surprised you can't find a Samsung unit...

    Hmmm come to think of it, I believe the adapter can recharge multiple devices, not just my cb.

    Think about it....5V 3A normally used for normal phone/tablet, 9V 3A for quick charge devices, and 15V 2A is for my cb (that is what is said on the bottom of the db)
