Gray cables are data; one to my Switch's dock for a controller, "two" for my mini wireless keyboard, and one micro-USB and one USB-C going to my computer. The red ones are all for charging and connect to an Anker charger I have mounted under my desk. One for USB-C PD, two USB-C, and one micro-USB.

u/bluaki · 35 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I feel like I'm posting about USB too much here, but people keep asking because it's easy to get confused about it. I just copied the table I made a while ago in a comment and added FAQs and notes for outside the US.

I hope this answers what people are really looking for better than the other threads.

Do you have some specific need I didn't answer? Have a USB-C charger you're curious about that isn't listed? Ask in a comment. Just keep in mind that (other than the iPad one) USB-A chargers won't give you good speeds. This includes the chargers bundled with even the most recent phones by Samsung, Apple, Sony, LG, and HTC.

I'll use this comment to note some USB-C chargers I'm aware of but don't recommend:


Charging speeds vary

These chargers can give the Switch great speeds sometimes, but usually they're closer to just "okay". It seems to be random every time you plug it in. If the Switch is completely turned off (not just in sleep) when you plug it in, you'll almost always get those "great" speeds for as long as you keep it plugged in even after turning the Switch back on and playing. This happens because Nintendo's implementation of USB Power Delivery (USB PD) is very buggy. They're a hassle to use right for now, so I don't recommend them, especially since there are better alternatives now.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
Anker PowerPort+ 5|$39.99|Amazon|Use the USB-C port. It also offers 4 USB-A ports. No USB cables included.
RAVPower 26800mAh USB-PD battery|$79.99|Amazon|
UGREEN 30W USB-PD charger|$17.99|Amazon|No cable included.


Safety issues

These don't damage the Switch, but they can damage other USB-C cables and devices, especially if you plug them in to something that doesn't make sense, like another charger. If you know how to use them right and you're careful, you won't damage anything, but why risk it? Get something else.

Great but expensive

If you have a USB-C laptop, feel free to get one of these, but otherwise don't bother. Plenty of chargers in my OP work just as well with Switch and are much cheaper.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
Google 60W USB-C charger|$59.99|Google|Bundled with Chromebook Pixel 2, great for laptops, very long 12ft cable
Apple 61W USB-C charger|$69|Amazon, Apple|Bundled with 2016 13" MacBook Pro, no cable included when bought on its own. The 15-inch model's 87W charger is probably great too.

Innergie 45W USB-C charger|$59.99|Amazon|Works with the dock, great with laptops and phones too.


Unconfirmed speeds (and expensive)

These chargers are also too expensive to recommend. They probably work great, but I haven't seen any reports of people actually trying any of them. They all probably work with the dock too. If anybody has one of these, please tell me if it works with the dock.

u/panZ_ · 7 pointsr/mac

I've used quite a few different chargers with my MacBook and MacBook Pro. Yes, a 3A charger for a phone or Chromebook will work fine to charge it overnight or keep it topped up while you work under most scenarios. If you're running VMs, software builds or video editing, the Pro will eat more than 12W and you'll be at a minor deficit but it I'll get you those extra hours. I've also used the MacBook 30W charger (with a PlugBug for travel) with the Pro.

My favorite chargers now, though, are the Anker USB bricks with a type C port on them for travel and home. I use the 40W for travel. It only drives the 3A/12W on the C port but it is nice to have the other ports to charge a phone, headphones, watch and spare battery. Then I keep the 60W version at my nightstand. The USB port on that drives 30W (verified with the System Information app). I use their USB C cable as well. It doesn't do 3.0 transfer speeds but for charging it is perfectly fine and super durable.

u/XSSpants · 5 pointsr/thinkpad

> New USB3 Charger

That could be a positive. 3rd party chargers are super cheap, and you have cross compatibility with Apple, Dell, HP, etc USB-C 20vPD chargers. And wildly useful chargers like

u/Schlafwandler · 5 pointsr/chromeos

This is what I use, and I love it... charges at 45W and Benson Leung approved:

u/andyooo · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

You also need to understand the reasons why the chargers didn't get a perfect 3. Usually it's not a dangerous issue, just a technicality that won't really affect you.

As for recommendations, the best overall charger I got is the Anker Powerport+ 5 USB-PD one, it compensates for the inevitable voltage drop in the cables. The non-PD one is also good, but the C port is 15W max (3A), which is fast enough, but for some reason it doesn't charge at all with the supposedly fully compliant Apple USB-C charging cable (the revised version). In my testing I haven't really noticed much difference in charging times, especially to 100%, since 18W tends to heat up the phone more and throttle charging, and after about 30-40% the phone doesn't seem to ask for 18W anymore at all.

Also bear in mind that if the voltage is not high enough, the phone will request less power. For instance, I have a RAVPower USB-C battery (non-PD), and it barely reaches 5V out of the C port (measured with the Plugable USB-C meter). Depending on the cable used (generally speaking longer is worse), the phone may request something like 7.5W (USB BC 1.2 spec I guess). I need to use an extremely short 6-inch Amazon to be sure it requests 15W. Longer cables are not surefire that they will make the phone request full charge speed.

I'd also recommend getting a USB-C and maybe a USB-A power meters to test.

u/jdestewart · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This thing is the bomb. Charge all of what you said simultaneously and at full speed, especially the Switch when you use the USB-C port.

There are smaller/cheaper chargers that have a USB-C port and one USB-A port on Amazon, I just haven't tried them.

u/Galaxy_2000 · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

The rapid charging the Pixel uses is Power Delivery (PD) and it will only be delivered via USB Type C to C cable. NOT Type A to C.

By description, the second link should give you rapid charging. However, I don't know if it's actually a good charger.

The third link, again, by description, it should give you rapid charging. But, I don't think it's advisable having a Qualcomm Quick Charge port same as the PW port because they have their own different configuration.

If you're ready to buy a $30 charger (referring to the $27 dollar item) from Amazon, might as well get it from the Google store.

If you're looking for another charger with multiple ports I would suggest this one:

u/Nathan-K · 4 pointsr/Android

Ah, that's a "fancy" charger. :) Yes, I saw that one, but it was way too big for me. Also, that has "Intelligent Charge" on the A ports, not QuickCharge. That basically means it alternates between Apple/BC1.2/Samsung signaling in quick succession until a device draws current. QC is completely different. (Tronsmart was the ONLY maker with a potentially compliant QC3.0+C product, but messed up at the last minute. They said they're fixing it. If they do I'll buy the fixed one on principle.)

>Qualcomm Quick Charge not supported. For QC charging, see Anker's PowerPort+ 1 with Quick Charge 3.0.

They also make a 60W that GTrusted said is PD-functional, and Benson seemed to approve of. Again, it was way too big for what I needed. However, I do admit both are very compelling from a sheer economical perspective! Thank you very much for pointing them out.

u/BangsNaughtyBits · 3 pointsr/podcasting

Anker. Specifically:

The charger and battery are specifically listed on the SoundDevices page as supported for the MixPre-6, which requires a lot of power to run in normal mode. See the SoundDevices recommendations here:

The MixPre-3 isn't quite so aggressive but USB C is a standard that is all over the place with regard to data speeds and power carried. The MixPre recorders are USB 2.0 so power is the real concern and not speed.

Edit: The reason the cables are so stiff is the wires have to be beefy to carry that much power without overheating and failing. Most USB A ports and chargers only carry 10-12 watts. The full USB C spec goes to 100. Everything should fall back to the lowest common safe value if it all works. If you need flexible, then you will have to get shorter cables.

Edit2: I just plugged the supplied USB C to dual USB A cable into a mid-2010 MBP and plugged in my MixPre-6. I got a green battery indicator with two and one USB A connector attached and the mics all responded correctly. I didn't actually record as it was inconvenient.

I had a cheap generic USB A to C cable from a few years ago I had and it produced an amber battery display indicating lower power mode and only the first two preamps were functioning as ex[ected. I suspect I have another similar cable in a tablet box but I've never used it. I'll break it out if you wish.


u/Jaxidian · 3 pointsr/essential

This Anker charger is one of my favorite USB Type-C chargers. It's bulky for traveling with when you're looking for something slim, but it's great for in a hotel or at home/work on your desk. It sometimes goes on sale for ~$35, but not too often.

u/bykim · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

I use this one for home. No problems with it. They make a car charger as well.

u/djfakey · 3 pointsr/iphone

Does the anker charger also have power delivery? Please be aware that not all USB C chargers are the same. Standard USB C does 5A but PD allows much higher Amperage for charging bigger devices. The ones that do have PD are typically much more.

This one? $50 with Power delivery; the apple one OP linked also uses PD. Feel free to link which one you speak of.

u/Rods_and_Filaments · 3 pointsr/ipad

so this one and NOT this one?

u/RearmintSpino · 3 pointsr/ipad
u/doema · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

But just keep in mind that the fastest charge can only happen with a USBC to USBC setup. While I got a bunch of Anker USB A to C cables, it's annoying as hell the speed is quite a bit slower than the C to C setup.

At home with multiple devices, this is my go to charger.

I picked up the Anker 60W charger. (4 x USB-A IQ ports and 1 USB-C with Power Delivery port) -

u/Levarien · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

So, the answer is "yes, but-"

The USB-A to USB-C cable that comes with the pro-controller doesn't support the new USB Power Delivery standard. While it will charge the Switch, it will do so fairly slowly, and only when the Switch is in sleep mode. The Switch will more than likely drain battery if played while connected to it.

If you're looking for something to charge while you play, you'll need an adapter and cable that can provide full USB-PD support. Something like this Anker and a good USB-C to USB-C cable.

u/_KiloHertZ_ · 2 pointsr/ipad
u/gol706 · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

The important thing to look at is which USB-C Power Delivery profiles both you device an charger support. Your device will usually fast charge at the highest profile booth devices support, then drop to 5v once the battery is mostly charged. Chargers usually have the supported profiles written in tiny text on them. Devices you usually have to Google around to figure out what they support.

I really like the this Anker charger that will charge my Pixel, Switch, and MacBook pro (though only at [email protected]):

I would avoid mixing devices and charger that do and don't support Power Delivery, like Nexus 5x/6p era stuff and 2016+ stuff.

If you really want to go down to rabbit hole, you can get one of these devices to see what's going on:

u/Gimli_The_Drunk · 2 pointsr/Dell

I have a 9360 which requires 45W via 20v @ 2.25a (2.5a?). This Anker did not work, this ZMI (Xiaomi) did.

I ended up keeping both, but would have preferred to carry the multiport anker. The ZMI is nice and compact and comes with a USB-C cable that works and can carry that amount of power. I had to buy a 100w USB-C cable for the Anker just to test it.

Edit: just saw this at the bottom of the ZMI description:

> (Note: The USB-C to Lightning cable for iPhone/iPad/iPad Pro is NOT included. Dell XPS 15 NOT supported.)

u/Aimwill · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I got the Anker multi-port 60w one and couldn't be happier. My 6P + my bfs iPhone6+ + tablet + 2 battery packs all charging fast at once... Using one outlet? Win. Granted, we don't normally have that much plugged in at once, but it's really nice to keep things together.

Edit: it was "Benson approved" when I got it, I assume it still is :-)

u/wakkow · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel2

Can it be USB-C? This one works great for me. I'm sure the newer one works the same.

u/mattnukem · 2 pointsr/chromeos

Quality USB-C chargers aren't cheap. The least expensive quality charger I can think of is this one from Anker:

u/Bilbo_Fraggins · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have one 2m cable for near my bed, the google one is a good length for my car, but what I'd really like to find is a high quality cable about 1.5' for my charging station (Anker w/ power delivery). Any recommendations?

u/happypup324 · 2 pointsr/thinkpad

I was looking for a USB charger and came across the Anker PowerPort 5+ which has Power Delivery. Using it in conjunction with a Belkin USB 3.1 cable I'm able to charge my X15C. I thought I'd share as this setup is a great alternative to using the AC adapter. It charges a little slower but you also have 4 additional USB charging ports that can be used for charging other devices simultaneously. Will be great for traveling!

u/sylocheed · 2 pointsr/chromeos

The Anker Powerport+ 5 might have been perfect for you as it has USB-C/PD and regular USB-A, but strangely Amazon doesn't sell it anymore and the product page has been pulled down.

Perhaps they will be releasing a replacement soon.

u/NaeemTHM · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hey guys, I'm completely new to USB C accessories and just wanted to know if this was a good purchase for a Nintendo Switch wall charger

I bought a Benson approved USB C cable to go with it. My concern is that the output on that USB C plug is that too much for the Switch? Or will it intelligently charge at 2.6A (like the official charger)?

Thanks in advance!

u/LaughingMan11 · 2 pointsr/chromeos

DO NOT get the one you linked to. It's only got Type-A ports, it supports Qualcomm Quick Charge, which Chromebooks, because they follow the Type-C spec closely, will never support.

If you use that charger with your Chromebook, you'll likely only charge at 1.5A at 5V, or 7.5W, which is almost assuredly not enough to keep the battery charging while you are using the thing.

Buy USB Type-C and PD compliant chargers.

This one is pretty good, and charges the Asus at the same 45W like its included charger, plus gives you 4 other Type-A ports to charge your other things :

u/afoggynotion · 2 pointsr/onebag

Hey u/TeebsGaming - I also made the switch to a USB-C laptop recently, and think I found the near ideal solution for chargers and cables for one bagging - here's my setup:

  • This Anker USB charging hub which charges my laptop via the USB-C port, and then my phone, Kindle, backup battery, etc. through the others. Since it has a normal plug and cable, you don't end up blocking the other plugs. I pair with this set of travel plugs.

  • Because sometimes you just want to charge one device at a time, I use this Aukey 2-in-1 duo wall charger, which charges my laptop on its own, or you can plug in the included adapter and charge one or two USB 3.0 devices at the same time.

  • The final pieces of the puzzle are Anker's Powerline USB-C cable (I get a nice long one so if the plug is on the other side of the room, its no problem), some velcro cable keepers, and usually one small single USB plug (like what comes with an iPhone or Android device) just in case.

    The bigger hub is really the game changer. My power set up for all my devices now fits into a tiny bag about the size of small paperback.

Best I figure is something like this, but it's only for charging. Aside from that, USB-C is still a bit specialized, so it gets pricey.

There are quite a few all in one adapters that have a card reader, video out in some format (maybe HDMI? never looked too hard), USB ports... all sorts of stuff.

What I was hoping to see is that Apple would put a USB port in the power brick or that some third part would build a whole hub thing in a power brick.

But that doesn't support USB-PD over a USB-C to lightning cable for some reason.

u/zhenya00 · 1 pointr/thinkpad

I take it you are asking about the current generation with usb-c charging?

In that case you have plenty of options. The laptop will charge via virtually any usb power supply, but if the power output it too low it may only charge when the laptop is asleep. I have been experimenting with a couple of alternative options.

First is the Anker 5-port 60W charger with Power Delivery This is more of a desktop charger, but it can perform fine as a portable model, especially if you add a shorter cord and it is replacing several chargers you would otherwise be carrying. This charges the X1 at 45W.

My preferred travel option at the moment is this Dell unit which is 45W, compact, and includes a usb-a port for charging a second device (although only at 5W). I added this folding adapter replacing the AC cord, and now I have a compact travel unit that wraps the cord nicely and can charge two devices.

There is also the FINsix Dart-C which is the most compact option available, and can also charge a second device, but it's expensive and currently estimated to be at least 10 weeks of lead time for shipment.

I don't have any experience with battery packs, but any pack that includes the usb-c Power Delivery spec should do the job.

u/Pr0diGy14 · 1 pointr/lgv20
I have this one, and I absolutely love it. It was also listed on the USB-C approved devices list

u/anonymous-bot · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I don't think there is a charger that can fast charge both at once. The closest option might be this:

Use the USB C port for the MacBook and charge the Nexus with the regular USB A ports.

This Powerport is the one I use with my C302. No issues, although I can't tell you if it charges slowly or not because I charge it overnight.

So, it's the first one mentioned in the thread. Charges at 30W over USB-C.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/GPDPocket

Mine is similar, I have this Anker one which is the older version of this new one that actually supports USB-PD (from comments: According to the labeling on the device, it supports USB Power Delivery with outputs 5V @ 3A, 9V @ 3A, 15V @ 2A, and 20V @ 1.5A.).

But look at your specs:

Input :AC 100-240V ~ 1.7A 50 - 60Hz
Quick Charge 3.0 Output :3.6-6.5V=3A, 6.5-9V=2A, 9-12V=1.5A
PowerIQ Output :5V=4.8A (2.4A Max Per Port)
Size :102 x 75 x 28mm / 4.0 x 3.0 x 1.1in
Weight :205g / 7.2oz

(Qualcomm) Quick Charge is not compatible with USB-PD so you can throw those specs out the window. PowerIQ (your blue ports) are 2.4A each max, so drawing 2A is close to your expected max.

For cables, 5A cables seem to be the latest best high end multi-use cables you can get. Like this one and this one.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought proper rapid charging required Power Delivery, which is only available in C-C connections?

Do you know if the Switch accepts more wattage from chargers with USB-C Power Delivery? The Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD can output 30W of power. Their 5-port USB (1 USB-C) wall charger can output up to 45W through USB-C

u/waterboysh · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I actually think this Anker one would work pretty well. Been looking at Nathan K's list and he recommends it and it's capable of 15v/2.6a for the Switch and should also work fine with my phone.

EDIT: Here is Nathan K's review of this charger which he specifically mentions in his post about the Switch. So without being able to test stuff with the actual Switch, I'm inclined to say this Anker charger is the safest bet 3rd party wise that follows the USB PD specs.

EDIT2: I had to repost because apparently I accidentally used an Amazon referral link.

Samsung uses their own Adaptive Fast Charging technology (but can also use Qualcomm's Quick Charge (QC) 2.0) while Apple uses USB Power Delivery (USB-PD).

it is definitely safe to use, but you won't see 'fast charging' per se

note that USB-PD only works via USB-C, so if you're being sold an iPhone "fast charger" that has regular USB-A, it is not a fast charger.

you can consider getting something like this

EDIT: seems like Qualcomm is providing compatibility with PD chargers in QC 4.0+ and above, but QC 4.0 support is very thin at the moment

It is not yet clear what the minimum power is to charge and play with the switch. It is estimated (knowing battery size and minimum play time) to work with any smartphone charger that serves more than about 1.5A, but that won't charge the Switch at max speed. The (licensed) car charger from Hori does 5V at 3A and specifies "charge and play". That seems to be a safe bet at the time so any USB-C charger that does 3A will do the trick.

There are not many that will be usable in docked mode. I suppose using the stock charger would be best for that. Otherwise you'd have to search for chargers that are compatible with USB-PD (USB Power Delivery) and can do 15V at about 2.6A. These are mostly laptop chargers, but a multi-port charger I've found that can do this is from Anker:

I’ve used this one on my 13in MBP and works really well:
Anker USB Type-C Premium 5-Port 60W USB Wall Charger PowerPort+ 5 USB-C with Power Delivery for Apple MacBook, iPhone X / 8 / 8 Plus, Nexus 5X / 6P and PowerIQ for iPhone, iPad, Samsung & More

The Essential phone is very, very picky about cables and chargers. The cable they included in the box is a very low quality cable and should be replaced for purposes besides charging. If you bought during an eBay special, you may have an unusually low quality charger.

For optimal (fast) charging, you want a high quality USB-PD rated USB wall (or car) charger supporting USB-C to USB-C charging.

Something like this, this, or this along with a USB type C to type C cable.

Once I switched to doing it this way, my phone started to charge rapidly every time.

Here's the top USB-PD chargers off Amazon. I have this "60W" model. You'd think, 60W, that's probably 20V at 3A, right? That's close enough! Guess what - the unit itself is 60W. The USB-C port maxes out at 45W. Whoops.

In fact, there are only three known USB-C chargers that will work at the full 65W - Lenovo's, Apple's 87W one, and iVoler's 75W one. I'm not aware of anyone else finding any that charge at the full 65W. Out of hundreds of USB-C chargers out there that advertise USB-PD, and even the bunch that advertise 60W... only three work, and if you're buying a Thinkpad, you probably aren't going to be buying an Apple charger for it.

With that said, the T470 will take a 45W charge. But USB-C and USB-PD is such a disorganized mess that there's no guarantees for 65W devices.

This is the one I have and it's great. USB-C support. Charges my phone 6 or so times before needing to be charged again. My phone also says charging rapidly while using the usbc port.

Edit: I also have [this] ( that I use for my living room charger. Equally as awesome. Anker is my favorite charger and cable brand.

There are only two usb-c 3rd party charger that are hightly recommended, fully supports apple 29W power delivery and usb-c specification compliant. Almost all other usb-c charger on the market now cut corners or not within proper specs. Actually, even apple's 29W charger is not fully in spec because it was created before the final spec was made. But, it should charge the macbook fine, just not other devices.

I use this one because it is small and light. Able to charge my 29W macbook fully and Nexus 6P at 3A

This one is excellent too, but too heavy and big for my taste. It does have multiple ports.


Using a USB-A to USB-C cable adapter will not allow you to fully charge a macbook. The spec at best will get you 12W (2.4A5V). Most USB-A output at 7.5W (1.5A5V), . To get full 29W (2A *14.5V) output you need a USB-C to C cable and a charger that can out put in power delivery mode.

u/capast · 1 pointr/chromeos

This does 29W over USB-C:

On a side note, what Chromebook is that with the 47.5W charger? It seems that the Macbook 12 maxes out at 29W.

u/pmap93 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Thanks for your reply!

I'm eye-ing on this. It says it has 'Power Delivery' So I'm guessing this is equivalent to the Official AC adapter.

It says it charges a MacBook almost twice as fast at a rate of 30W compared to the standard Apple adapter. So would this mean the Switch would also charge at higher wattage?

u/somerandomanalogyguy · 1 pointr/essential

I'm in the US and don't know much about other AC power sources, but I can try to point you in the right direction. Here's an example of an ideal one that I'd buy myself if I needed another charger:

You're looking for that top port that says "USB PD" - they don't all say that, but if you look around on spec sheets you should find something to that effect. For the specs, you also want to see 9v / 3A if you want quick charge capacity. If it goes to higher voltages that nice but your phone won't use it. Ignore Qualcomm QuickCharge or QC stuff, except if it's QC4+. Anything QC4 and below is not compliant with USB-PD and Essential did not go the Qualcomm route. QC4+ is Qualcomm's latest standard and claims to incorporate all the requirements of USB-PD as well.

Bonus points: In the Q&A there's a note from Benson Leung, a Google engineer that tests the shit out of various chargers and cables. If it gets his stamp of approval then it's for 100% sure a safe and quality charger or cable to buy.

TLDR: If you can find the thing in the link with your country's AC plug you're all set. Beware cheap imitations because they can burn out your phone in extreme circumstances. Fast charging is more complex than the run-of-the-mill cheap USB chargers we've grown used to.

edit: I looked some more and the comments and reviews say it works internationally, and that looks like a standard AC cable so you should be able to swap it out for one of yours and plug it right in. I'd do some more reading but that looks like a good bet.

u/patriotsfan82 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I'm not sure that one exists. When they do, they should be marketed as a USB C Power Delivery device.

E.G. compare to one of Ankers wall adapters that DOES support USB C Power Delivery:

The details hit on the Power Delivery standard.

This doesn't mean that non Power Delivery devices won't work, just that I assume, for now, that only Power Delivery devices should be guaranteed to work.

u/pinellaspete · -1 pointsr/GooglePixel

You definitely need a high powered charger to receive the best results of fast charging.

I did a timed study charging my Pixel 2 5" and was pleasantly surprised. I used this 60W Anker charger that has 36W available to the USB-C PD port: Anker USB-C 60W Charger

I started with the Pixel 2 battery totally drained to 0% and it wouldn't turn on with 3 attempts. Phone was room temp when I started charging.

  • Plugged phone into charger and waited for 5 minutes before turning phone on.

  • After 1 hour the phone was at 78% charge.

  • After 1 hour and 50 minutes the phone was at 100% charge.

    The charging seemed to slow down once the phone hit 90% charge and it took a while to go from 90% to 100%.

    This is incredibly fast in my opinion. To get to 78% charge in 1 hour gives you almost a full day's operation at medium to heavy duty use.
