What is Quick Charge And Power Delivery?
What is Quick Charge?
Quick charge allows smartphones, with a typical 5 volts 2 amps going beyond from most USB standards’ allowable. The latest quick charge product can charge batteries at a higher voltage, in which higher transfer rate is exceeding its normal condition through its common cable. When paired with compatible devices, a Quick Charge-enabled charger delivers more power, allowing the connected device to charge faster. As one of the most widely used of the fast charging technologies, Quick Charge is already embedded in many of your favorite smartphones. If your smartphone is Quick Charge 3.0-compatible, you can charge up to 80% in just 35 minutes
What is Power Delivery?
USB Power Delivery is a fast charging technology, supported by certain iOS / Apple and Android / Google devices, that delivers much higher levels of power than standard charging.
USB-PD provides up to 100W of power, with up to 100W of power available, USB-PD can even charge larger devices, like tablets and laptops. All you need is the right wall charger and USB-C cable – and leave those heavy laptop power cables at home.
Is it Safe?
As the battery charges up due to its quick charging system, it slowly goes down to less and less current consumption. That when the last 20% charging takes more time to full charge. This is one of the safety measures that Quick Charge has developed.
These systems is built with safety precautions it has over-voltage protection, over-current protection, over-temperature protection, connector protection and detection, and many more features. This is a well-designed technology with the sole purpose of keeping the customers safe.
Do all devices support Quick Charge?
Not all devices support this new technology, some smart devices are still catching up with this new and latest protocol.
However most new devices sold after 2017 have already adopted this new technology as they demand more power and as consumer we want a faster charging time.
The Nimble will come equipped with QC and PD technology so it is compatible with all newer devices that has the capability to use QC or PD.
So what is USB-C?
