A List Of Fast-Charging USB-C Power Banks, Hubs and Cables

Here is a guide to the latest fast-charging USB-C Devices available:

These devices use the new USB Power Delivery (USB PD) standard. This allows devices to negotiate for higher voltage and current levels up to 20V and 5A (100W), compared to standard USBs’ 5V and 2.4A (12W).

USB Power Delivery works by negotiating power levels between the power source (charger) and the device, allowing for optimal power transfer

You need a USB-C charger or power adapter with sufficient power output to fast charge a device. The cable also needs to support the fast charging standard.
