I have a similar Anker one. Their quality has always been top notch.
Voted hot for Usb c and Power Delivery
Useful gadget, means you just carry a single plug for all your devices
Can this not cause short circuits? Very high current with low voltage.

Kindest regards

They're my go-to for all things charger related now.
I purchased one of these thinking that it was compatible with all my smartphones but it isn't, it only charges at a higher rate for phones that follow the PD protocol (See link) so check first.

For high power charing higher voltage is used (vs regular USB 5V one) in USB Power Delivery standard, up to 20V at 5 amps (100 W) - this is dynamically negotiated depending on the capabilities of devices on both ends, as well as cable quality etc.

But the cables need appropriate low resistance to prevent arcing or overheating, especially at 5amps. They need to be thick. Longer thinner cables are particularly vulnerable.

I personally would be cautious if this allows a large AC being pulled from the step down.

Ordinary chargers are available every where and not expensive. Fast chargers are expensive and difficult to find especially on the High Street . This charger will still charge your appliances/ phones whether power delivery or not .

I bought an Anker PD charger and cable the other day for my Huawei P30 Pro and it doesn't show any difference in charge speeds over a "normal" charger. Anyone else had more success with these chargers on that phone?

Because Huawei uses FCP . You are better off buying this

Alright now I'm completely lost 😄
I thought USB PD was a standard fast charging option as long as it has the appropriate wattage. Are you saying there's different versions of that as well?

Anker lists Huawei as compatible as well

Yes, you need quality, PD certified cable for high power charging to work. Otherwise devices will not negotiate high W/Amp power delivery.

And in the worst case, it is only 5-20V... not enough voltage to be dangerous or concerning

Where are you seeing it does 5 amps at 20v?
Can this be used with iPhone XS Max? USB c to lightning?

He's not saying it does, he's saying that the power delivery standard includes a range of voltage/current combinations to deliver upto 100w. Power = current x voltage.
The power delivery profiles this charger supports are
USB-C Output: 5V ⎓ 3A / 9V ⎓ 3A / 15V ⎓ 2A / 20V ⎓ 1.5A
You can use this info to look up whether your PD compatible device will work with it

I'm hoping they will drop the price on the 30W version - I don't need the higher power really, and it will save a few £.

He's said upto 20v at 5 amps, but it's doesn't allow 5 amps at 20v, it allows 1.5, none of the combinations of voltage x amps offer 100 watts, unless I'm missing something.

Great price wish the plugs were flatter like a normal plug rather than protruding so much

5A at 20V is the maximum USB-PD *standard* allows. The exact value depends on the implementation and requirements for the particular piece of hardware: not every USB-PD charger is able to deliver full 100W (those are bulky and expensive), in the same sense that not every device will request 100W of power (even if the charger is capale).

The point is, as a part of the standard, both devices can negotiate charging rate, depending on the capabilities on both ends (as well as quality of the cable). And yes, this specific charger is question 1.5A/20V max.

I understand, so basically it was talking about the standard of the USB pd is able to deliver upto 100w, not this particular one, no worries thanks for the advice
