Need something charged quickly? Now Docking Drawer has added Blade and Blade Duo charging outlets featuring USB-C with power delivery (or PD) to our offerings. Quickly, safely charge cell phones or tablets three times faster than with a normal charger. And, thanks to an integrated smart chip, your device is protected from overheating while delivering those faster charge times. 

What’s the difference between USB-C and USB-C with (PD)? 

USB-C with PD charges 70% fasterWe’re glad you asked! A traditional non-Power Delivery USB-C charger outlet will charge your devices at USB-A specifications, so your devices will charge within a few hours. But a USB-C with power delivery offers faster charging times—up to 70% faster—ensuring your devices can be charged in less time and—best of all—without your bulky block charger included when you purchased your device! 

Consider that your iPad Pro comes with an 18w charger but the iPad itself, according to instructions, is Power Delivery capable. This means that when it’s used with the Blade USB-C (PD) it will charge nearly twice as fast due to the 30w capacity! Your iPhone 8 and later can benefit from this technology, too. But note that not all USB-C chargers offer Power Delivery so before use, look over the specs of your charger carefully. Is your device a match? Then all you need to charge your device is a simple USB-C cable
