The implementation of more useful fast charging technologies on the portable devices that we use are becoming more common and that is increasing accessibility, too. This is because of the new standard of charging that is becoming more commonly used with the larger devices that we use each day such as tablets and laptops. Of course, most tablets already use standard USB charging but it’s the use of fast charging technology that’s most useful and that’s where USB-C Power Delivery (PD) comes in.
Power Delivery is usable with USB-C and it’s basically able to provide more charging power than traditional USB charging, and there are ranges to the power that it provides. That’s the reason why smartphones and laptops are able to use Power Delivery and how you’re actually able to use the same Power Delivery charger to charge your smartphone and laptop, provided that they’re both compatible with PD.
In this guide, we’re going to be covering the best Power Delivery chargers that you can use with the Acer Chromebook Tab 10. It’s the newest tablet from Acer and one of the most notable parts is using USB-C charging. Lots of people are confused about what type of a charger you can use, as not everyone is willing to lug around the charging brick that it comes with. That said, Acer has provided info that you can use a 45W USB-C Power Delivery charger or higher to charge the Chromebook Tab 10 and you’ll be good.
