Alternative USB-C chargers for Zenfone 8 don't seem to work

I'm starting to think there's an issue with the Zenfone 8 (or with mine), as I can't seem to get my Zenfone 8 to charger with an alternative USB-C to USB-C charger (this should select USB PD as charging protocol). The standard/included ASUS hypercharger works fine. But with all the other ones, it stops charging after a few seconds.

I've tried:

  • Anker powerport atom III slim 63w
  • Elecjet x21 GaN 62W PD(PPS) charger

The Asus Zenfone 8 will not charge from the chargers USB-c output ports. If i use an USB-A output port with a USB-A to USB-C cable, it will charge fine. The chargers are working fine with their USB-c ports on my other devices.

Anyone has any ideas?
