Aukey Releases Its First USB Power Delivery 3.0 Single Port Charger with the AUKEY PA-Y8 PD 3.0 USB-C Wall Charger

The emergence of USB Power Delivery 3.0 makes this fast charge technology even better than it already is. The newer 3.0 version should provide more efficient charging at lower temperatures when supplying power to most mobile phones, tablets, and notebook PC's sold today over the USB Type-C port. Charging peripherals supporting USB PD 3.0 technology have recently showed up which include the AUKEY PA-Y8 PD 3.0 USB-C Wall Charger.   

The AUKEY PA-Y8 PD 3.0 USB-C Wall Charger is a single port wall charger which can output up to 27W of charging to your phone or tablet from its USB Type-C connector. Instead if you're looking for a dual port wall charger, you may consider the AUKEY PA-Y10 Amp PD 3.0 USB-C Wall Charger with an additional USB Type-A port for legacy charging. 

To see how the AUKEY PA-Y8 PD 3.0 USB-C Wall Charger actually looks like, we purchased the charger which came delivered in typical Aukey cardboard packaging. Obviously Aukey prefers to keep their product box plain and simple. 

For an Aukey product, don't expect a USB Type-C cable to come with the charger which would have been useful otherwise. Here it includes only the standard 24-month product warranty and instruction manual. In contrast you would normally find a included USB Type-C cable from other popular charger brands like Belkin and Ventev.

The charger can use USB Power Delivery 3.0 technology over USB Type-C to support Power Data Objects (PDO) protocol negotiation using 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (12 volts @ 2.25 amps), 27 watts (15 volts @ 1.8 amps), and 27 watts (20 volts @ 1.35 amps) power profiles as well as Programmable Power Supply (PPS) of 3-11 volts @ 3 amps.

To enable faster charging, the USB Type-C port can be used to charge phones which support USB Power Delivery technology like the iPhone XiPhone 8Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8HTC 10, and LG V20 or tablets such as the Huawei MateBook. Note if you need to charge your iPhone you need to use the Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable.

Similar to other wall chargers, this charger also has foldable ac power prongs that are used to plug in to a ac power outlet for charging.

The AUKEY PA-Y8 PD 3.0 USB-C Wall Charger is a very compact option if you need USB Power Delivery 3.0 through USB Type-C although it only comes with a single USB Type-C port. While you will not be able to charge two devices at the same time, the charger has enough power to support all phone and tablet models.

Using the USB Power Delivery Compliance C2 Tester from Granite River Labs to run just a subset of the full USB Power Delivery compliance test suite, we can verify that the AUKEY PA-Y8 PD 3.0 USB-C Wall Charger actually supports five PDO's for charging: 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (12 volts @ 2.25 amps), 27 watts (15 volts @ 1.8 amps), and 27 watts (20 volts @ 1.35 amps)  as well as a Programmable Power Supply (PPS) voltage range of 3-16 volts @ 3 amps. Note some USB Power Delivery 3.0 compliance failures were observed.
