The LG 16W Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Power Adapter that came with the LG G7 ThinQ provides 16 watts of charging over USB Type-A  through Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Let's see how this charger works with the Huawei P10 phone which supports both USB Power Delivery and Huawei's own SuperCharge technology over its USB Type-C interface.

After the LG 16W Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Power Adapter was plugged in to the Huawei P10 on a fully depleted battery using a USB Type-A to Type-C cable, it took about 168 minutes overall for the phone to charge completely with the LG charger. This is much slower charging than using Huawei SuperCharge but it is to be expected since the Huawei P10 does not support Qualcomm Quick Charge to begin with. 

Initially, the LG 16W Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Power Adapter started off delivering around 10 watts to the Huawei P10 but after the phone has charged for nearly 90 minutes, the current progressively ramped down to about .1 amps as the battery was almost full. Click here to download the trace captured by the GRL-A1 power analyzer to view the entire power charging cycle.

Although the power drawn is much lower when compared to using USB Power Delivery or Huawei SuperCharge, it is reasonable enough for a quick charge if needed.
