I'm designing a battery powered device, which gets charged with 5V. I wanted Type-C as the charging interface, so I designed an appropiate Type-C Port for the device:
Well, It works as it should when I charge via an USB-A to USB-C cable with my phone wall charger. But when I use a modern Type-C charger with a Type-C to Type-C cable, it only gives voltage in one plug-orientation and I can't understand why. In the other orientation there is no voltage on VBUS (or anywhere).
I think I did everything needed to get standard 5V from Type-C. As I don't need special voltages or current, I don't want to add an overpriced PD-Controller.
I tested the same setup with a Type-C female breakout-board and it was the same.
