Now that even iPhones are equipped with the USB-C port, the popularity of this connector is set to increase. Given that this connector is also widely used on laptops, can we use the same charger for smartphones and laptops? We talk about it in this week’s #AskTheGriots.

Yes (long live USB)

If both your smartphone and your computer use the USB-C connector to recharge their batteries, then no worries. When you connect a smartphone or your computer to a charger, the two agree on what the device needs, and the charger provides the necessary power.

However, if a charger can’t deliver the minimum power required by a device, then the device won’t charge.

Be careful with cable and charger

Make sure you use a quality cable. A poor-quality cable may limit charging speed or cause compatibility problems.

If your smartphone is equipped with fast charging, use a charger that is compatible with your device’s fast charging technology, as these chargers are optimized for fast, efficient charging.

Always refer to your device’s charging specifications before using a charger.
