What is a PD charger?

A fast charger featuring PD technology

Currently, two mainstream fast-charging technologies are on the market: the first is QC (Quick Charge), and the other is the more recent PD (Power Delivery Charger). PD chargers are one of the fast-charging protocols released by the USB-IF that are aimed to provide a more efficient charging technology than traditional charging methods.The new generation of PD chargers can use the PPS feature to perfectly integrate QC and satisfy the need for fast charging. In addition to supporting a variety of output voltages and currents, PD chargers also support 3C devices such as mobile phones, cameras, and laptops as the usage scope becomes more and more extensive.

What are the advantages of a PD charger?

One device that meets the charging needs of multiple devices

Various devices require independent chargers, which are inconvenient to carry and not eco-friendly. In view of this, the USB-IF launched the USB PD 3.1 to provide a unified charging protocol. As long as a PD charger is used, it can support charging for all devices with Type-C ports while matching the voltages and currents of each product. In addition, the PD charger has advantages such as fast-charging and automatic adjustment of charging speeds to maximize the battery’s service life, making PD chargers safe, fast and convenient, and a better choice for charging.

Extensive Support

Any device with a Type-C interface and supporting USB PD fast charging can use a USB PD charger to meet various charging needs.

How do I choose a PD Charger

Three Points of Consideration for choosing a PD charger

Choosing a brand with a good reputation is the first thing to do. Products launched by reputable brands are used and tested by many people, and the quality of those products is somewhat guaranteed. These brands also provide users with comprehensive after-sales services so they won’t have to worry about damaged products or warranty issues. In addition, the output power is also very important as some electronic devices have certain specifications that need to be checked before making the purchase. Finally, further review the price and size of the PD charger to ensure that it’s within the budget. After making sure that all of the conditions have been met, you have now selected a suitable PD charger!
