Smartphone chargers are capable of some amazing speeds today, with 65W, 80W, 100W, and even 150W speeds on the market. In saying so, not all chargers are equal when it comes to their ports.
Some chargers are equipped with a full-sized USB-A port while others are equipped with USB-C connectivity instead. But do Android Authority readers have USB-C ports on their adapters? We posted this question earlier this week, and here’s how you answered it.
Does your charger have a USB-C port?
Over 3,000 votes were cast in this poll, making it a pretty popular survey. The winner by a country mile was the “yes” camp, as 77% of respondents said they indeed had USB-C ports on their chargers.
It’s worth noting that Samsung and Google don’t offer bundled chargers, but their official chargers are available as a separate purchase and come with USB-C ports. So it’s possible quite a few readers took this route. USB-C chargers also tend to support speedy USB-PD wattages, so we wouldn’t be surprised if some readers bought one of these chargers to top up a variety of gadgets (e.g. laptops and handheld consoles).
Otherwise, just ~23% of surveyed readers said they didn’t have a USB-C port on their charger. We’re surprised this figure is so low, as many mid-range and low-end phones still seem to come with USB-A chargers. Nevertheless, we hope to see more brands switch to USB-C chargers across their product lines in 2023.
