Charging

Will Using Both Charging Ports at Once to Charge Your Computer Make It Charge Faster??

Probably not. There is a "protocol" about charging a Lithium-ion battery about the various "steps" with limitation of voltage and current. Trying to force multiple sources to contribute will (probably) result in decreasing the current from each source so that the total does not exceed the maximum allowed current. That is assuming that the charging follows the protocol using an appropriate circuit. Using a high current is said to reduce the battery life but some "chargers" are built to have a fast charge time even if it may so reduce the battery life. It is why you would prefer to stay with the original charger supplied with the appliance.
