When it comes to the future of charging, there’s a rising standard and that would be USB-C. If you already didn’t notice, nearly all new Andriod smartphones no longer use Micro-USB. Instead, most of them are now using USB-C. As USB-C has a lot of potential when it comes portable devices for a while, and that would be because of the use of Power Delivery (PD). PD is basically fast charging that is used with USB-C and because of its faster charging potential, more types of devices are able to use the USB-C standard rather than it being just for Android smartphones.

What we’re talking about is that tablets and laptops are also able to use USB-C, and along with that, Power Delivery. This is basically going to make an ecosystem of USB-C devices that are able to use the same charger.

Right here, we’re reviewing his Baseus 45W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger. When it comes to power Delivery charging, most chargers on the market use 30W of charging power. Instead, this charger has a 45W output, so let’s see if the higher output is what you should be going for.

45W USB-C Power Delivery Port

The main reason that you’re getting this charger is of course because of the Power Delivery charging. It has a 45W charging output and in a few ways, can actually be more useful than 30W Power Delivery charging. That is if you actually need the power. When it comes to charging USB-C Power Delivery compatible tablets and laptops, it’s very important to know the powering requirements for the device.

That’s because, for some Power Delivery compatible laptops, they require more than 30W of charging power. For example, there’s the Razer Stealth gaming laptop that actually requires 45W, and also the Dell XPS 13 that also requires 45W of charging power from a USB-C Power Delivery charger.

There’s also a Dell XPS 15 laptop requires that you use a 60W Power Delivery charger with it, otherwise it won’t charge at all.

So in those types of cases, a higher 45W charger charging speed can actually be very useful and charge wider-range of PD products.

The Power Delivery charging output broken down into Voltage and Amperage is:

5V-3A / DC 9V-3A / 12-3A / 15V-3A / 20V-2.25A

Another thing that this Power Delivery port is capable of is that if also features Quick Charge. Yes, it might sound strange, but if your Andriod smartphone is Quick Charge compatible, but not Power Delivery compatible, then this USB-C port is still able to change it at its max charging speed.
