USB-C PD USES CUTTING EDGE USB-C TECHNOLOGY

USB-C connectors have been designed hand-in-hand with USB-C 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-C POWER DELIVERY CHIPSET DELIVERS EXACT POWER REQUIRED

Whether it’s a small phone or a large laptop, the USB-C 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.

USB-C Power Delivery for Android



Google and Samsung (S20 and later) smartphones are leading the way in USB-C Power Delivery for Android, with others following suit. Many new Android devices will feature USB-C to offer these faster charging capabilities.


PD-ENABLED DEVICE CABLE CHARGING TIME
(to 50%)*
CHARGER POWER
Google Pixel 5 USB-C to USB-C 37 mins 18W or higher
Google Pixel 2 XL USB-C to USB-C 37 mins 18W or higher
Google Pixel 2 USB-C to USB-C 37 mins 18W or higher
Samsung S20+ USB-C to USB-C 26 mins 25W or higher
Samsung Note 20 USB-C to USB-C 31 mins 25W or higher

* Charge time varies with environmental factors; actual results will vary. 

WHAT CHARGER DO I NEED?

To enable fast charging via USB-C Power Delivery, you need a wall charger that can deliver enough power (measured in watts) to your smartphone.

A 45-watt wall charger will charge all your USB-C PD-enabled devices, but if you are looking to charge a Google Pixel, which will only accept 18-watts of power, your 45-watt charger will only deliver 18-watts.

Unless you have other USB-C PD-enabled devices which could benefit from a charger with higher wattage – a less expensive, lower wattage charger might be a better choice.

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