The USB Implementers Forum, which is the association of companies operating in this context, has learned errors with the micro-USB. Type-C chargers are actually faster and can charge your smartphone at 15 watts, which is 5 times faster than older connectors. And the good news is that it does not damage the battery.
2. You can charge from both sides
Since both ends of the cable are identical, they can perform both functions. You can choose in which direction you want the power to be. In some cases, this gives fun results or your smartphone suddenly charges your external battery. If you have a lot of battery, you can charge the smartphone of your friends. Plug in both smartphones and control the direction of charging. To do this, a menu opens when you connect both mobiles.
