Charge Dell xps 9520 via multiple 20 w chargers at same time

Hello, today I forgot my dell charger and the only available thing that I had on hand was two 20 watt usb c cellphone chargers. 

I charged with one and the laptop in sleep mode as the power of the charger was to low in comparison with the 130 w normal charger. This worked ok but the question that arise was the following: 

Is it possible to charge via two or three chargers of 20 w at the same time? Or the laptop only allow one power input?

No.  Only one input will be active at a time.

You may be able to (slowly) charge the system (preferably powered completely off) but you need a higher capacity adapter -- the  original -- to charge at full speed or run the system at full power.
