Certain, the brand new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL haven’t got headphone jacks. However their USB-C charging and knowledge port may be extra versatile than most.
In keeping with Google engineer Benson Leung — the person who’s been saving us from crappy USB-C cables, by the best way — the brand new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL telephones assist as much as 27-watt charging.
Leung says the telephones at present include an 18-watt USB-C PD charger, that means you may should discover a charger that particularly advertises a 27W USB-C Energy Supply charging mode (search for each “PD” and “9V/3A”) to be able to reap the benefits of the quicker speeds.
I do not know if I might run out and try this fairly but, although, as a result of Leung does not say how a lot quicker 27W charging may really be. Google advertises that the included energy adapter already supplies 7 hours of battery life after simply 15 minutes of charging, which may be quick sufficient for you, anyhow.
However, it is all the time good to have extra folks testing these items out, no? Should you pre-emptively determine to make the leap, hit me up together with your outcomes.
And it is attention-grabbing to see that — like the brand new iPhones — Google is not delivery its quickest charging resolution within the field.
