Implies is the correct word.USB-C is able to charge a laptop. So is USB-micro (my laptop uses that).But far from all manufactures actually support it.Having a certain shaped plug doesn't automatically mean that it can be used for charging. And if it can it doesn't grantee it can charge as fast as USB-C supports.
Just checking I not missed any Anker products which do 45W PD. The only ones I noticed is the Atom 4 and the 60W Powerport Speed PD 60 . Anything else?
You can always get ThisIt's a PowerPort Speed 1, 60w PD wall charger which should be sufficient to charge your laptop now
I just left my Thinkpad charger behind today at a meeting so bought this for a spare $35. Hope it works or it joins the mountain of PD stuff which doesn't work. I'd expect a Atom 2 be out some time but Anker is just s.l.o.w.
@AnkerOfficial on Twitter just said they don't have plans for an Atom PD 2, and the last we heard from @AnkerOfficial on here is that it would be six months. And who knows? It might not even use GaN!
Interestingly, the first atoms took 380,000 years to emerge after the Big Bang. Hopefully Anker is a little faster. Atom 2, also known as Helium was in smaller quantities than Atom 1, Hydrogen.
(a cosmology joke).
Emphasis on little.
The Powerport PD 60W works! I basically now have a travel charger for my Thinkpad. At last something works!
Glad it's working for ya. And good to know cause I was looking at getting one myself
Yeah for the wattage its pretty small. I don't need as much as 60W, need only 45W but Anker don't make 45W.
Nice little package with the USB C 3.1 cable I got last year.
