Goodbye chargers owners! USB 3.0 now can deliver 100W of power

An important announcement made today is that the organization leading the development of the USB standard , which warns of an improvement in the technology of data transfer 3.0 adds support for transfer through these ports from the current 4.5W to 100w , marking a huge change in the ability and usefulness of this tool.

The possibilities are endless for this, and the first thing that comes to mind is the charge of laptop batteries high capacity, professional teams that require shippers with capacity lower than 100W. For example, the power adapter on a MacBook Pro 85W reaches its largest version, with 60W power enough to give a 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Clearly the people in charge of this work knows that this amendment will standardize for multiple devices, and in this is that Peter Harrison, director of collaboration in standards of Nokia, said: “This publication is an important step to enable an ecosystem flexible power management and universal. In an ideal world, would now be possible to eliminate the need for different chargers for each notebook.

Doing a bit of history, it is healthy to remember that the specification was released in late 2008, bringing the ability to transfer up to 4.5W of power. Then a year ago it was thought this review to allow the 100W, news arrived today and will be an impetus for the medium and long term, see USB products focused on the burden of electronic devices.
