New USB Type-C 2.1 standard unveiled: Power increase from 100 to 240 W without adapters

The non-profit organization USB-IF has unveiled the new USB Type-C standard version 2.1.

What changed?

If now USB-C Power Delivery implies the ability to transfer up to 100 watts of power, then USB Type-C 2.1 increases the transmitted power to 240 watts. In this case, only one wire is required – no additional adapters.

With the help of a USB cable, you can connect your smartphone, tablet, monitor, and even gaming notebooks. Although, of course, for the most powerful devices (for example, gaming computers and the latest Sony and Microsoft game consoles ) you will still need an adapter.

New wires get labeled EPR (the Power the Extended the Range – extended power range) and will maintain the current strength up to 5 amps and voltage up to 50 volts.
