Use the Car Friendly GearMo USB Type-C 27W PD Adapter to Rapidly Charge Your Mobiles
Portable power sources such as car chargers are essential to gadget heavy users to keep their phones or tablets charged while on the move. Joining other USB Power Delivery based car chargers out there is the USB Type-C 27W PD Adapter by GearMo, a US based company specializing in USB products.
The GearMo USB Type-C 27W PD Adapter supports USB Power Delivery 2.0 technology over a USB Type-C connector which is similar to products like Belkin's USB-C Car Charger + Cable, Ventev Dashport pd1300 Car Charger and Energear 27W USB-C Car Charger, which can also provide up to 27 watts output power. The GearMo USB Type-C 27W PD Adapter works with your 12-16V car's cigarette/DC charge port to quickly charge your USB Type-C based mobile, tablet, or laptops.
Interestingly, the GearMo USB C Car Chargers website claims the charger is also able to support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0 as well as Huawei's and Samsung's proprietary fast charging technologies. We'll find out more on this when testing the charger for various USB-C compatibility.
Like most accessory packaging, the GearMo USB Type-C 27W PD Adapter has a clean and simple design for its box.
The back of the box clearly states the following power profiles: 11.5 watts (5 volts @ 2.3 amps), 20.7 watts (9 volts @ 2.3 amps), and 27.6 watts (12 volts @ 2.3 amps) that the charger supports for charging. Oddly, these profiles don't quite match those listed in the the GearMo USB C Car Chargers website which can be confusing.
Rather than including a USB Type-C cable in the box just like Belkin's USB-C Car Charger + Cable, Ventev Dashport pd1300 Car Charger and Energear 27W USB-C Car Charger, GearMo chose to supply only the charger on its own. Just make sure to bring your own cable to use this charger.
The GearMo USB Type-C 27W PD Adapter only comes with a single USB Type-C port but has enough power to support all phone and tablet models. If you need two USB ports to charge two devices at the same time, GearMo also offers the 75W USB C Power Delivery (PD) Car Charger (see review here).
The GearMo USB Type-C 27W PD Adapter looks typical of many other car chargers out there. The compact form factor of the charger should fit well in your car's DC charge port no matter where the port is located.
