USB-C PD Cable FAQs

What is a USB-C PD cable?

A USB-C PD (Power Delivery) cable is a type of USB cable designed for high-speed data transfer and power delivery. Compared to regular USB-C cables, a USB-C PD cable can transmit higher power levels, making it suitable for charging a wide range of devices.


Do all USB-C cables have PD?

No, not all USB-C cables support Power Delivery (PD). PD is a specific power delivery protocol, and some USB-C cables are designed solely for data transfer or basic charging without PD capabilities.


What is the difference between USB-C PD and non-PD?

The primary difference between USB-C PD (Power Delivery) and non-PD USB-C cables lies in their charging capabilities:

USB-C PD: USB-C PD cables can deliver higher power levels, ranging from 5W to well over 100W. This enables fast charging for a wide range of devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones. For example, the Anker 541 USB-C to USB-C Cable supports 60W fast charging and can charge Samsung S10 to 50% in down to half an hour when coupled with a charger.

Non-PD USB-C: Non-PD USB-C cables typically provide lower power levels, often up to 15W. They are suitable for basic charging of smartphones and some accessories.


How do I know if my USB-C cable has PD?

To determine if your USB-C cable supports PD, two methods may help:

Check the Labeling: Look for any labels or markings on the cable. Cables that support PD often have "PD" or "Power Delivery" mentioned in the product description, packaging, or on the cable itself.

Review the Specifications: Check the cable's specifications. Look for information on power delivery capabilities, such as wattage (e.g., 60W, 100W) or voltage (e.g., 5V, 9V, 15V, 20V). Higher values are indicative of PD support.


Can I use a USB-C PD cable with a regular USB charger?

Yes, you can use a USB-C PD (Power Delivery) cable with a regular USB-C charger if they have the right connectors. This is because USB-C PD cables are designed to be compatible with all USB-C chargers, no matter how high their outputs are.
