ANSMANN QC3.0 Powerbank 10.8 Can Charge Your USB Type-C Phone But Can't Use Active USB Power Delivery
The ANSMANN QC3.0 Powerbank 10.8 offers 15 watts of charging for most smartphones through its USB Type-C port which doesn't support active USB Power Delivery which is also not enough to charge larger batteries found in tablets and notebook PC's. Given the Powerbank doesn't actually have any USB Power Delivery chip inside, it only uses a simple approach to support charging over USB Type-C without having to use active USB Power Delivery negotiation. When attached to the phone, the Powerbank just passes USB Type-C signals through the USB Type-C port on the phone.
