Where can I get the best Apple Watch charger for the Apple Watch series 1-4?
Almost all electronic devices require regular charging. We all want our smartphones, desktops, laptops, and other electronic devices to charge safely and efficiently. How does technology help us with our everyday charging routine? Is quick charging technology advanced enough to accommodate today's rapid electronic development? Let's have a look at how different devices handle quick charging.
Apple Fast Charging
The iPad Pro, the 12-inch MacBook, Google's Chromebook Pixel, and Lenovo's X1 Carbon all employ USB-PD (Power Delivery), the same industry standard as the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. The most significant benefit is interoperability: USB-PD does not require any specific cables or wall adapters.
Here’s what Apple recommends:
Apple 29W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter.
A comparable third-party USB-C power adapter that supports USB Power Delivery (USB-PD).
Android QC Fast Charging
Quick Charge, developed by Qualcomm, is one of the most extensively used charging standards on the market. It's not a typo: Qualcomm system-on-chips including the Snapdragon 845, 835, 820, 620, 618, 617, and 430, which power phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, HTC U Ultra, and LG V30, include this feature as an option. Qualcomm claims that the latest iteration of Quick Charge 4+ can fully charge smartphones in 15 minutes.
- One of the most extensively used charging protocols.
- Older Quick Charge versions are backwards compatible.
- Overheating and short circuiting are prevented by built-in safety mechanisms.
How to fast charge your laptops?
Tip 1: Disable outer connection
The same way that setting airplane mode on a phone speeds up the charging process, so does doing so on a laptop. When you plug your laptop in to charge, the flight mode will turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and network connections, preventing your laptop from using too much power during the charging process.
Tip 2: Turn off the laptop entirely
The greatest approach to extend the life of a battery is to turn it off. Turning off the laptop completely helps to charge it effectively while using the least amount of battery. However, you may believe that it is too inconvenient to open it again, for example, if you only want to go for a cup of coffee and then return to work in 10 minutes. You can turn off the screen while keeping the laptop functioning in this situation.
Tip 3: Keep your battery in good health.
Only a well-maintained battery can assure proper charging. Your battery will last longer if you follow a few simple maintenance instructions. Experts recommend charging it to about 80%, then letting it discharge to zero and recharging it to 100% once a month. This will keep the battery healthy for years to come by keeping the electrons flowing.
