@Madron71 the system charges through the Thunderbolt port when connected to the WD19TB docking station. It comes with a barrel style ac adaptor for use without a docking station.

As long as you have a powerful enough ac adaptor, it should charge through the thunderbolt port when connected direct to the system. According to this thrid party non Dell website, they charged the system via the thunderbolt port using a 90w supplied adaptor - https://www.engineering.com/Hardware/ArticleID/19372/Performance-on-a-Budget-with-the-Dell-Precision...

Thanks Alan, I was disoriented because some model reports explicitly power delivery but not this one.
