    Usb Wall Sockets, what voltage? fast charge

    Want to grab some wall socket with usb's but want them to work via fast charge, currently got note 4, but rather get something futerproofed and not familiary with what voltage is needed, thankyou

    they should all be 5 volt it's the ampage they deliver that dictates the charging speed. 2.1A for fast charge I believe

    2.1A OUTLET FASTER CHARGE / THAN 1A

    THEY NORMALLY HAVE ONE OUTLET OF EACH

    No point, those wall sockets sap energy.

    more then if you had wall plug fast charge?

    intresting or you mean when nothing plugged into it is using energy?

    I've no idea what he means either.

    Surely the purpose of a wall socket is to release energy?

    You are looking at 2A minimum.

    They are normally 2.1A which is shared between skts. There's a newer 3.1A also shared. screwfix.com/p/l…87p

    There was a deal on here a while back with one that had 2.1A but if you used only 1 skt it would give the full 2.1A. But I can't find the deal.

    The latest standard is USB Power Delivery. It does provide several voltages, 5v/9v/15v/20v, but the official guidelines for quoting capacity just use the total power output and require all lower voltages to be supported. So a 30W socket, for example, supports [email protected], [email protected] (27W) and [email protected] (15W). Anything higher would support 15V up to 3A and 20V above that 45W but no more power at 9v and 5v.

    Most devices supporting it use a USB Type C connector and I believe they will require the same on their power source for the full capacity.

    I haven't seen any wall socket USB Power supplies supporting it yet, although there are a reasonable selection of plug-in ones now, at least at lower power levels.

    ​Not getting cheap on me now are you ? Joking aside it's not too bad if you want all that stuff and to forget about it but at that cost I would expect av1200 atleast
    Someone must be buying them though. Maybe the apple crowd as it's cheap to them.
