Charge Your USB Type-C Device Quickly While Driving with the Verizon USB-C PD 2.0 Vehicle Charger with USB Power Delivery

The USB-C PD 2.0 Vehicle Charger was sold by Verizon as a newer version of the Verizon Vehicle Charger with Fast Charge Technology  which closely resembles each other. Rather than supporting both USB Power Delivery and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology like its predecessor, the Verizon USB-C PD 2.0 Vehicle Charger only provides USB Power Delivery 2.0 based charging over USB Type-C.

While the previous charger offers up to 30 watts charging, the Verizon USB-C PD 2.0 Vehicle Charger only allows max 27 watts output through USB Power Delivery using 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps) and 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps) power profiles.

The same pricing still applies for the Verizon USB-C PD 2.0 Vehicle Charger since we last purchased the Verizon Vehicle Charger with Fast Charge Technology some time ago (see this review). The newer charger also has the same affixed coiled USB Type-C cable connector that is also USB PD 2.0 certified to connect to Type-C devices for quick charge up inside the car.

Using 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, we can confirm the Verizon USB-C PD 2.0 Vehicle Charger supports 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps) and 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps) PDO's for charging. Note some compliance failures were also observed.
