When it comes to charging mobile devices, there are several technologies available that can help charge faster and more efficiently. Two of the most popular charging technologies are USB Power Delivery (PD) and Quick Charge 3.0 (QC 3.0). But what is the difference between these two technologies and which one is better?
USB Power Delivery
USB Power Delivery (PD) is a universal standard that works with all USB devices, regardless of brand or type. USB PD allows devices to be charged much faster than traditional chargers. It uses the USB standard to charge devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and other USB devices at higher power levels than the standard 5 volt, 2.4 amp we’re used to.
The USB Power Delivery is also more energy efficient because the power is dynamically adapted to the device. This means that the device never receives more energy than it needs. This not only saves energy, but also reduces the chance of overheating or damage to the device.
Another advantage of USB Power Delivery is that it supports bi-directional charging, which means that you can not only charge your device, but also use your device to charge other devices. This is useful if, for example, you want to charge your laptop using the battery of a smartphone.

Quick Charge 3.0
Developed by Qualcomm, Quick Charge 3.0 is a charging technology that only works with Qualcomm devices. It uses intelligent technology to improve device charging and charge them up to four times faster than traditional chargers. QC 3.0 uses higher power levels and dynamically adjusts the charging power depending on the device being charged.
Quick Charge 3.0 is designed to provide faster charging speed for Qualcomm-based devices, but it can also work with other devices that support the USB standard. It’s not bidirectional, so you can’t use it to charge other devices.
Which one is better?
The answer to which of these two technologies is better depends on your specific needs. If you’re looking for a universal charging standard that works with all USB devices, USB PD offers the solution. It is also more energy efficient and supports bi-directional charging. But if you are looking for a higher charging speed for your Qualcomm device, QC 3.0 is the better choice. It uses intelligent technology to optimize charging and charge devices up to four times faster than traditional chargers. If you’re looking for a charger that has both QuickCharge 3.0 and USB Power Delivery, check out the MOJOGEAR Charge+. This charger has everything you need to not only charge your smartphone quickly, but can also provide your laptop with energy.
In short, both technologies have their own advantages and disadvantages. It is important to evaluate your own needs and choose the technology that best suits your devices and charging needs.
