What is USB Power Delivery
USB Power Delivery is a fast charging technology from Belkin. As we have mentioned, this charge is compatible with specific Android and iOS models. One of the main characteristics of this load is that it offers higher power levels than the standard load, so that you get a faster charge at all times. The firm has a series of chargers that use this technology.
This charge has the ability to charge the phone up to 70% faster than standard 5W charging. Thanks to this, the phone will spend less time plugged in until it reaches its full charge. In addition, this technology allows you to charge a good percentage of the battery in a few minutes, making it especially comfortable for those times when you need to charge your mobile and have little time.
USB Power Delivery is compatible with all types of devices, from laptops to smartphones or tablets. So you can use it to charge any device at home easily. If it is a larger device, it will apply more power, up to a maximum of 100W.
What mobiles are compatible
This upload is compatible with a limited selection of devices, both on Android and iOS. These are the devices that can use a charger with USB Power Delivery:
- Google Pixel 2.
- Google Pixel 2 XL.

- iPhone 8 Pro.
- iPhone X.
- iPad Pro.
In the case of both Google phones, the use of this charge allows the battery charges 50% in just 37 minutes of time. So it is much more efficient when using it, compared to the normal charger of the two.
Proven: fast charging degrades batteries fasterFast charging is not only fast when it comes to reviving a battery, it also contributes to the speed of its degradation. It has been scientifically proven.
What charger do you need
In order to use the Belkin USB Power Delivery Fast Charge you will need a wall charger that provides sufficient power to the phone. A 45W wall charger is supported and it will charge all devices, although if the phone in question only accepts 18W, for example, the charger will supply only those 18W to it.
Having a charger that has a power equal to or greater than what the phone accepts is an option, especially if you have other devices that can charge with this system. Otherwise, a charger with less power, which will also be cheaper, is a good purchase.
