Read the full post: https://goo.gl/jYk8qU | More smartphones and other electronics products are supporting USB Power Delivery for fast charging. But what is it? Let me explain.
While it may seem like USB Type-C, USB PD and fast charging systems like Qualcomm Quick Charge are all different, they’re actually all compatible.
Join Gary as he delves into the differences between USB Type-A and Type-C, Quick Charge 3 and Quick Charge 4, USB Power Delivery and what Google has done with the Pixel phones.
USB PD may be optional now, but Google “strongly recommends” OEMs and accessory-makers support it, as Qualcomm has already done.
With these recommendations appearing in documentation for both Android Nougat and Android Oreo, are we nearing the time that Google forces USB Power Delivery on everyone as the universal charging standard to rule them all? Would this be so bad?
