USB-PD USES CUTTING EDGE USB-C TECHNOLOGY


USB-C connectors have been designed hand-in-hand with 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.


For more on USB-C cables, visit our USB-C Resource Center.


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.

Exact Power Required

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.

WHO IS USING USB POWER DELIVERY?



USB Power Delivery is the secret behind
USB-PD for Android and Fast Charge for iPhone
and is built into smartphones and tablets from Apple, Google, LG and many other manufacturers.

Fast Charge for iPhone



The new generation of iPhone and iPad joins the ranks of other Apple/iOS devices that charge via USB-C-PD, such as MacBook and MacBook Pro.

iPhone 8/ 8 Plus Lightning to USB-C 30 mins 18W or higher
iPad Pro Lightning to USB-C 60 mins 27W or higher

* Fast charge feature charges your iPhone X, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus up to 50 percent in 30 minutes when paired with an Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable. Charge time varies with environmental factors; actual results will vary.

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.

Use the table above to see how many watts your device needs, and then explore our USB-C chargers with Power Delivery.

Power Delivery for Android



Google smartphones are leading the way in Power Delivery for Android, with others following suit. Many new Android devices will feature USB-C to offer these faster charging capabilities.
