Google is an expert at using USB-C and the Pixel phones are just another example of that. Last year’s devices were able to fast charge over USB-C without any proprietary Qualcomm tech, and you can be sure of the fact that the Pixel 2 models can do the same. Why am I telling you all these?
Well, I am sure of the fact that you want to get the very best out of this handset and this definitely includes fast charging it in the list too. Even more, this year is expanded compatibility with even faster chargers.
The Pixel 2 handset comes with a 18W adapter and just like any other Pixel phone, it comes with an 18W USB-C mains adapter that supports USB Power Delivery 2.0. However, the idea is that it can charge much quicker if you pick up a more powerful charging brick. After all, the device is able of charging at up to 27W. That’s quite fast, so why not trying it out?
Google is actually happy to provide you different options such as a 45W adapter that will allow for that maximum charging speed for no less than £60. If this is a little too much for you, then you can be sure of the fact that there are more reasonably-priced alternatives. For example, you can choose a Macally four-port hub with a USB-C port that supports up to 60W charging for a much better price of £50 or look for even cheaper options.
It is great to see the expanded capability for those who need to charge their devices extremely fast. And don’t forget the fact that the Pixel 2 smartphone brings much more goodies to the table, so keep on exploring. See
