With Motorola's penchant for promoting its own TurboPower branded charging scheme, it's simply convenient the Motorola Moto G6 can also support standard USB Power Delivery 2.0 fast charging technology over USB Type-C. When connected to the third party Verizon USB Type-C Wall Charger with Fast Charge Technology, the phone was observed to take around 101 minutes to charge to full over USB Power Delivery with the charger.

Upon plugin on a completely drained battery, the Motorola Moto G6 immediately drew up to about 15.5 watts but as quick changing current was pulled, charging was reduced to almost 13 watts in the first 40 minutes. Charging was more stable in the next 40 minutes while decreasing gradually to around 3.1 watts. When the battery almost filled up, the current could be seen to ramp down to near 0 amps. Click here to download the trace captured by the GRL-A1 power analyzer to see more details on the entire power charging cycle.

It would seem the Motorola Moto G6 is able to charge slightly faster using USB Power Delivery with the Verizon charger than Motorola's  TurboPower which we tested to about 109 minutes with its own TurboPower 15W charger.
