New smartphones have high-resolution displays, faster processors, and always-on connectivity. That’s why battery performance has become a critical thing.
But smartphones quickly run out of juice, and that’s where portable chargers come in handy. While the charger that came with your device may charge it, it may not be fast enough. Or your smartphone may not have come with a charger at all–Apple and Samsung stopped providing chargers for their newer phones.
It’s also worth mentioning that portable batteries are not the same, even though they may look alike and use Lithium-Ion and Lithium Polymer cells for capacity. In addition, modern smartphones support faster charging speeds.
If you buy any portable charger on the market for the current-generation iPhone or Android phone, you’ll be disappointed. It’s important to match your charger and even the charging cable, to the charging standard your device supports.
The new RAVPower USB PD charger, RP-PC152 is designed for fast charging and uses Power Delivery (PD) charging technology. PD is a charging standard built to handle higher power that allows different devices to charge quickly over a USB connection. It facilitates a conversation between two devices: they negotiate a power contract and determine how much power to pull from the charger.
USB-C PD technology allows devices to be charged up to 70% faster than standard 5W charging. You’ll spend less time charging your smartphone. If you’re looking for a RAVPower USB PD charger that will give your phone an urgent battery boost, it’s the RP-PC152. Let’s have a look at some of its features.
6 Great Features of the RP-PC152
40W Total Output
This RAVPower 2-port PD charger for the iPhone 12 series is very similar to our other PD chargers. It has a 40W total output and is one of our most powerful chargers. When you use both ports, you’ll get 20W from each port. When only one port is in use, the charger offers 30W fast charging. We recommend charging power-hungry devices like an iPad Pro and a 13″ MacBook Air separately.
iPhones have long supported faster charging, and the iPhone 8 supports fast charging via USB Power Delivery. Thanks to PD, newer iPhones can support charging up to 22W. Almost every electronic device these days requires a USB wall charger, so it’s a good idea to have an extra one. Apple and Samsung have also stopped providing chargers for their newest smartphones, so getting an aftermarket charger is worth it.
2-Port PD Charging
The RAVPower USB PD charger lets you charge 2 devices simultaneously. It features 2 USB-C ports and has a smart power management system to power your devices fast. It is compatible with new iPhone and Samsung models and charges them at high speed—each port generates 20 watts.
PPS Super-Fast Charging
Programmable Power Supply (PPS) is advanced charging technology for USB-C devices. What the technology does is it modifies the current and voltage in real-time based on a device’s charging status. A PPS charger feeds your phone with maximum power. The RAVPower USB-C PPS charger provides super-fast charging–up to 25W for Samsung gadgets with PD 3.0 PPS charging protocol (like the Galaxy S20 and S21)
If you’ve owned an iPhone for a considerable amount of time, you’re familiar with Apple’s 5W iPhone adapter that takes hours to fully charge a phone. But did you know that with the right charger, you can fully charge your phone in less than half the time?
Yes, a RAVPower USB-C PPS charger like the RP-PC152 supports fast-charging protocols like PD 3.0, PD 3.0 PPS, and QC 3.0. And there’s more good news! It is compatible with iPhone 12 models, iPhone 11 models, iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy S20/S21, MacBook, and iPad.
It’s important to know that the charger you’re getting won’t overheat and damage your devices, costing you a lot of money. The RAVPower 2-port PD charger for iPhone 12 series is designed to protect your devices as it charges them. It protects your phone and other gadgets from overheating, over-voltage, and short-circuiting.
A portable charger keeps your phone alive when you need it most. It also powers your tablet, Nintendo Switch, and even your laptop. If you never want to see your phone dying when you need it most—and be unable to call, text or listen to music–get the RP-PC152. It has a compact size and features durable foldable prongs and will consume very little space in your bag.
2 Other Great Options
65W Dual PD Port Charger: RP-PC145
Power Delivery wall chargers are here to stay, because most wall chargers will soon be using USB-C ports. The USB-C port is standard and has replaced the Micro-USB port on many devices such as Android smartphones. USB-C ports can also replace USB-A ports because they offer faster charging. This is why we’re seeing more wall chargers with USB-C ports.
This RAVPower USB PD charger is powerful and easy to use. It has 2 USB-C PD ports and a maximum output of 65W. The 2 ports share the 65W max output, so it doesn’t matter what port you use to charge a laptop. When you only connect your MacBook Pro, it will go from 0% to 100% in just 2 hours. Advanced GaN Technology makes the charger produce more power and less heat. Folding prongs make it convenient for travel–it fits in the smallest pockets of a bag. Oh, and RAVPower provides a free USB-C-to-C cable.
30W PD + iSmart Charger: RP-PC132
The RAVPower 30W PD Charger is a great dual-port RAVPower USB PD charger. It ensures your phone charges on maximum speed no matter the cable you use. It features an 18-watt USB-C port and a 12-watt USB-A port and will charge your phone 2-3 times faster than the charger that came with it.
The charger cleverly merges the benefits of a USB-C charger with the benefits of USB-A. It can charge most phones produced from 2017 onwards at full speed via a USB-C cable (for iPhones, use a USB-C–to–Lightning cable). The USB-A port can power a second device at a relatively good speed using a USB-A cable. The power adapter is also small and lightweight, making it ideal for carrying in a bag.
