The USB Implementer Forum (USB-IF) has announced a new USB-C 240W power delivery standard that doubles the existing power capacity of standard USB ports. The existing USB PD goes out at a maximum of 100W, which is often enough for laptops and phones, but the new standard will be able to cater to more power-hungry machines such as laptops, printers, and larger monitors.
USB-IF is calling the new standard (v2.1) as Extended Power Range (EPR) and it is difficult for you to understand the new EPR labeled USB-C cables to be able to use full 2WW power for your machine.
“USB-IF must carry specific icons to the cable so that end users will be able to firmly confirm that the cable supports up to 200 W,” USB-IF said in a specific document. CNET. Cables need to support AA and V0V to be compatible.
While the good news is that the Universal USB PD standard is more capable, the need for special cables makes things more complicated for general consumers. Non-compliant cables do not provide the desired charging speed and damage the USB port.
USB-C is not the only specification that governs communication and compatibility with devices. The standard of USB 2.2 or newer USB 4.0.0 transfers data over cables and USB power delivery is responsible for appropriate charging speeds depending on the device, adapter, and cable.
On laptops, USB still competes with Intel’s Thunderbolt. USB 0 Gbps matches the Thunderbolt data transfer speed, but it does so by embedding Thunderbolt technology.
Anyway, USB-C PD is fast becoming famous as a charging standard that works with both phones and laptops. On the smartphone side of things, many proprietary charging solutions Qualcomm Quick Charge. To directly charge USB PD. Like other Oppo ownership solutions Super VOOC And of vivo Super flash charge There is also support for USB phones, even if the respective phones do not ship with a suitable USB PD charger.
