What Is Fast Charging?
Power Delivery 3.0 is quickly becoming the standard for power banks and adapters. It supports outputs at 7.5W, 15W, 27W, and 45W, each with its own voltage and amperage configurations. This means PD adapters with multiple USB-C ports can intelligently dole out power to multiple devices, so a 45W adapter may supply 18W to charge your phone, 5W to a wearable, and the remaining 22W to a tablet.
What You Need for Fast Charging
Depending on the device you have, the fast charging standard you’re able to use will vary. Check what your phone supports, then look at your wall adapter to see if it supports the same standard (they’re usually labeled). Then make sure your cable is compatible (you’re best off using one the one that come with your phone or adapter). If you need to buy a new wall adapter, cable, or wireless charging pad, take note of what standard it supports.
