USB Power Delivery (also known as USB PD) is a fast charging standard for a wide range of devices which can be charged over a USB connection. This technology expands USB to deliver up to 100W of power when standard charging is rated at 5W and thus can charge larger device like laptops, tablets and consoles.

SAFETY

The USB Power Delivery technology is also able to avoid overcharge and thus to protect devices. Thanks to a smart chipset, the charger will deliver the exact amount of power needed by the plugged device to charge as fast as possible without damaging the battery.

POWER DIRECTION

One other great advantage of the USB-PD is the fact that the power direction is no longer fixed. This enables the product with the power, whatever this is the host or the peripheral, to provide the power. Historically, a USB connection allowed for bidirectional data transfer, but power only flows from host to peripheral. Now, thanks to the USB Power Delivery technology, the power is bidirectional. Let’s take a concrete example : if you connect two phones that support Power Delivery with a USB-C charging cable, one phone could charge the other and vice versa.

WHAT POWER DO MY DEVICES NEED ?

All devices don’t have the same needs in terms of power. To help you to choose the right charger, here are the different amount of power needed by various devices:
