With Apple removing the charger in the box with iPhone 12 series, more and more brands are following the decision too. Samsung Galaxy S21 series also removed charger in the box and you will need to purchase it separately.
Whether it is Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, Samsung’s Fast Charge, OnePlus’s Dash Charge, Oppo VOOC charge or even Huawei’s Super Charge, there are no shortage of fast charging technologies for consumers to choose from. Standing apart from these is USB Power Deliver or USB PD in short, which is often misunderstood as being another fast charging technology available, but it is actually much more.
It is an Open Standard
Being universally available for anyone to use if the defining characteristic of USB PD. This provided smaller companies chances to include powerful fast charging in their devices without the need to pay steep licensing or invest heavily in Research and Development. USB PD allows smaller accessory manufacturers to include USB PD and provide fast charging to the mass.
Apple is among the brand that widely utilize their products with USB PD. iPhone utilize up to 18W of USB PD for fast charging, iPad utilize up to 30W of USB PD for fast charging and MacBook utilie up to 100W of USB PD for fast charging. Other than Apple, there are manufactures that utilize USB PD for monitors. You no longer need to have separate ports for power supply and outputs. All can be utilized with just one USB C port.
It is Much More Powerful
Another obvious distinction between USB PD and other fast charging technologies is the maximum output. USB PD is capable of providing up to 100W of charging which can be found on selected models of MacBook. USB PD is a complete redefinition of what is possible with USB charging. With USB PD, both voltage and current can be raised to high levels simultaneously, allowing very high power outputs.
No matter how much power is available, all the charging standards will negotiate the amount of power actually required, meaning there is no danger of accidentally using the wrong charger and overloading a small device. For example, you could charge lightweight wireless earbuds using a 100W PD charger and it would know that only 5W is required.
It is Way More Versatile
USB PD was created with a much broader purpose in mind and it is just as comfortable charging a smartphone as it is a Nintendo Switch, a MacBook Pro or even a Monitor. USB PD is much more powerful than other fast charging standards because that is an integral part of its aim to be ultra-versatile.
USB PD is also notable for coming in a wide variety of power specifications. Among the common one will be 18W, 30W, 45W, 60W, 65W and also 100W. You will still be able to use the 65W PD charger that used to charge your laptop or MacBook to charge your smartphone that supports 18W PD charging. This level of flexibility is not found in other forms of USB fast charging.
USB PD Charger Recommendation
Looking for the right charger for your smartphone or your other devices are not easy. First you will have to identify the maximum wattage that your smartphone or your other devices support. For example, iPhone supports up to 18W of PD charging. So if you are looking for a charger for your iPhone, you can always look for charger that supports 18W of PD charging.
