The Geeks’ Guide to USB Chargers - Anker Charger

by Joseph Watson Professional Blogger
Things change quickly in life. Be it the weather, the size of your clothes or your friend circle. These days what is faster than anything else is technology. One such invention led to the development of Anker desktop charger and just like that cables became very important in determining which gadget needs what. To make USB C more efficient, more features were added that made USB cables more important.
Another fact to note is that not all USB chargers, cables and connectors are equal. Of course part of it depends on the compatibility. And this difference can be seen while charging. Understanding this difference can be interesting. Hence let us go through some of the basics related to USB chargers or Anker desktop charger.

What is a USB Charging Port?

To simple put across USB stands for universal serial bus. By BUS here we are referring to a system that transfers data between computers or between computers within a computer. This transfer occurs through electric current from the main device to the peripheral devices. Usually, the main device is the computer and peripheral ones include mouse, smartphones, printers or keyboard.

What is a USB Charging Port?

The full form USB is Universal Serial Bus (USB), the term ‘bus’ refers to a system that transfers data either between computers or between components within one computer. The data in such a system stream in both the directions. The power although is unidirectional and only flows from host to the device. The host is not allowed to take power from outside.

Now to answer the second part of the question. As already stated not all devices are equal and some USB chargers such as Anker charger are faster than others. This happens due to the current supplied by a charging point. As we may recall voltage and current both are responsible for how quickly a device will charge. To protect electronic equipment from overloading chargers take the standard 240V and convert them to 5V. The current also varies among each charging source. For computers most of the time 0.5A of current flows as that is what is allowed. Hence the charging is slow. Plugs in which we insert the USB charging cord usually offer 1A.The charging speed also depends on the thickness of the cable. In a direct proportion relation.

Can the device overcharge or blow up?

Theoretically the answer can be yes. There is a danger of overloading a USB hub when you attach too many gadgets. As the USBs can charge a small single cell Li-on pack only. It means charging a device that draws 500 mA connected with other loads can exceed the current limit of the port. This can lead to a voltage drop and a possible system failure. To prevent this overload some hosts includes current limiting circuits. These circuits shut down the supply when it overdraws. Also gadgets like Anker have an Anker charger warranty. The warranty is 18 months and such a damage will not occur.

So in practice you don’t have to worry up about a possible explosion. Your devices will not blow up!.

Conclusion

USBs are safe to use today with almost nothing to worry about. These chargers and devices have systems to limit the maximum inflow of current. Powerful devices can charge your gadgets faster!
