Verizon's Newer USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger Enables Both USB Power Delivery and Qualcomm Quick Charge Based Charging

Since releasing the 24W based Verizon USB Type-C Wall Charger with Fast Charge Technology, Verizon now offers the USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger which is a newer version of the previous charger. With up to 27 watts of charging using USB Power Delivery 2.0 technology, the Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger can charge your USB Type-C phones or tablets faster at 9 volts @ 3 amps PDO.

Click here to see how the Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger charged the Motorola Moto G6 over USB Power Delivery.  

While at the Verizon Store in Dublin, California, we picked up the Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger among the many different types of Verizon chargers being sold including the Verizon USB Type-C Wall Charger with Fast Charge Technology and Verizon Vehicle Charger with Fast Charge Technology.

The Verizon Store also sold some USB certified Type-C vehicle chargers by AT&T including this one.

With an almost similar packaging it can be a bit hard to differentiate between this Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger and the previous model (as seen here). The box was slightly dented at the sides upon purchase but luckily its contents were not damaged.

Despite the newer version, there were no change in pricing for both models along with the same USB Type-C to Type-C cable accessory for connecting the charger to the Type-C device for charging.

The Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger looks very similar to the earlier Verizon USB Type-C Wall Charger with Fast Charge Technology  and also supports both USB Power Delivery and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger claims to support 5 volts @ 3 amps (15 watts) and 9 volts @ 3 amps (27 watts) power profiles using USB Power Delivery.

Like its previous version the charger also supports 5 volts @ 3 amps (15 watts), 9 volts @ 2.7 amps (24 watts), and 12 volts @ 2 amps (24 watts) using Qualcomm Quick Charge. Note that the USB specs don't allow for a USB Type-C device to support both USB Power Delivery and an alternative protocol such as Qualcomm Quick Charge even though there are several products like this already in the market such as the AUKEY PA-Y11 Amp PD USB-C Wall Charger, Huawei's 24W USB-C Power AdapterBatPower PD6 and GearMo 75W USB C Power Delivery (PD) Car Charger.

The Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger seems to be USB PD 2.0 certified along with its Type-C cable accessory.

The Verizon USB-C (Type C) Wall Charger provides charging using 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps) and 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps) PDO's, which we verified through 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. It was quite surprising to observe compliance failures for all the tests also which only a few were listed even though the charger shows it is USB PD 2.0 certified so make sure to be extra careful when using this charger.
