<whitequark> also does everyone here know how the USB PD devices determine which one is the charger and which one gets charged?
<whitequark> i usually put it as "the same way hermaphroditic snails mate" because it's a perfect analogy
<whitequark> but not a very good user interface
<whitequark> (dual-role devices, that is)
<marcan> I'll fall back to what my switch does with my old Anker battery pack
<marcan> that is: if you power on the Anker first, it charges the switch
<marcan> until the switch is charged, then it reverses and the switch starts charging the anker
<marcan> hilarity ensues
