Knightsbridge turns up the power with 63W USB charging

Laptops and other power-hungry devices can now be USB-charged directly from the socket thanks to Knightsbridge’s new 63W PD (Power Delivery) wall charger. Suited to commercial and retail environments such as hotels, cafés, bars and offices, the wall charger is Knightsbridge’s most powerful yet and supports PD, Programmable Power Supply (PPS) and Quick Charge (QC) through two USB-C and one USB-A ports.

With compatible cables, PD and PPS laptops can be charged straight from the socket using a 63W USB-C port, without the need for bulky adaptors. With the latest USB-C interface, many Android and Apple (iPhone 8 and above) devices also support fast-charging PD technology.

PPS fast charging is the most advanced charging technology for USB-C devices. The technology adjusts the voltage and current in real-time, depending on a device’s charging status, feeding it with maximum power.

USB-PD gives more power than standard USB charging making it the ideal choice to charge larger devices such as tablets and laptops. Devices that support USB-PD can use the USB-C port to achieve a maximum 45W delivery (20V DC 2.25A).

QC allows for the charging of devices, mainly mobile phones, at levels above and beyond the typical 5V volts and 2A amps for which most standard USBs allow.

More power, faster charging, and voltage management all contribute to fast charging without supplying excessive power, which could damage electronics through overcharging or overheating.

Legacy devices, such older Android-based smartphones, can charge at up to 15W via the USB-A port (20V DC 1.5A).

Power is shared when more than one port is active at the same time.
