BENEFITS OF USB POWER DELIVERY
Super Fast Charging
USB-PD can charge your device up to 70% faster than standard 5W charging*. This means less time plugged in while your smartphone reaches 100% charged. When you’re looking for an urgent battery boost, a quick 10-minute charge with USB-PD might be all you need.
USB-PD provides up to 100W of power
With up to 100W of power available, USB-PD can even charge larger devices, like tablets and laptops. All you need is the right wall charger and USB-C cable – and leave those heavy laptop power cables at home.
High Speed Safety
USB-PD USES CUTTING EDGE USB-C TECHNOLOGY
USB-C connectors have been designed hand-in-hand with USB Power Delivery, to handle these new high levels of power. USB-C circuit boards are specially designed to carry this increased wattage without being damaged or overheating, for enhanced safety to users and their devices.
Older connectors, such as USB-A, were first introduced in 1996, when much less power was needed than that required by today’s smartphones and tablets. This older technology is less suited to handle this increased wattage and may not have the ability to monitor heat and circuitry abnormalities.
THE USB POWER DELIVERY CHIPSET DELIVERS EXACT POWER REQUIRED
Whether it’s a small phone or a large laptop, the USB-PD charger detects the connected device to deliver the right amount of power to charge that device as fast as possible. This ensures fast charging without delivering too much power which could damage circuitry.
WHAT CHARGER DO I NEED?
To enable Fast Charge, you need a wall charger that can deliver enough power (measured in watts) to your iPhone/ iPad.
A 45-watt wall charger will charge all your USB-PD-enabled devices, but if you are looking to charge an iPhone X, which will only accept 18-watts of power, your 45-watt charger will only deliver 18-watts.
Unless you have other USB-PD-enabled devices which could benefit from a charger that delivers higher wattage – such as an iPad or MacBook – a less expensive, lower wattage charger might be a better choice.
