The USB-IF Forum, the body responsible for adopting USB technologies, announced a new generation that increases the charging capacity from 100 watts to 240, which opens the way for the use of a single USB-C cable to easily charge all electronic devices.
The new generation offers this remarkable upgrade in charging capacity, through a new feature called Extended Power Range, or EPR, which provided more than double the charging capacity, according to The Verge.
The forum set two standards that must be adhered to by the manufacturers of electric chargers with the new technology, which is that the wires support the voltage of up to 5 amperes and the intensity of current up to 50 volts.
The forum warned against the use of charger heads not intended to support the new technology with charging wires with the new EPR technology, indicating that this could cause damage to the wires.
The arrival of the new generation of chargers that support the new technology is expected to start at the end of this year or early 2022.
