The 27W QC4+ Car Charger was sold by Hama as one of its Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ (QC4+) enabled chargers in its USB Type-C power and adapter product selection. With QC4+, the Hama 27W QC4+ Car Charger can use USB Power Delivery 3.0 based PPS (Programmable Power Supply) and Augmented PDO's to offer up to 27 watts of charging for Qualcomm Snapdragon based phones that support PPS and can take advantage of the technology to optimize charging speed, performance and temperature like the LG V30.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ technology also addresses compatibility with other phones that support non-PPS Power Delivery like the Apple iPhone XS Max or Android phones such as Google's Pixel 3 XL and the Samsung Galaxy S9+. The Hama 27W QC4+ Car Charger allows max 27 watts output through USB Power Delivery using fixed PDO's (Power Delivery Objects) of 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps) and 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps) as well as variable power of 9.9-17.7 watts (3.3~5.9 volts @ 3 amps) and 9.9-33 watts (3.3~11 volts @ 3 amps) power profiles. By supporting 27 watts, the Hama 27W QC4+ Car Charger can provide fairly decent charging to even tablets and smaller notebook computers like Apple's 11-inch iPad Pro (2018) and MacBook (Early 2016).
To maximize compatibility, the Hama 27W QC4+ Car Charger also supports phones using Qualcomm Quick Charge instead of USB Power Delivery like the LG, HTC, ZTE and Motorola phones.
