The main problem remains: USB-C cables can look the same and work completely differently. With a few exceptions, this is the main charging, data, and display port for almost all modern phones, tablets, and laptops. The European Union has even suggested making it mandatory on all devices.
The problem is that the USB-C connector is always associated with another specification of the USB protocol but is separate. USB-C cables can use speeds of 2.0 or 3.2, can support multiple wattage charges, can support Thunderbolt or not, and even Thunderbolt cables can be "enabled" or "disabled." The connector is the same, but the capabilities are not.Read more The new USB-C Type 2.1 standard delivers 240W max
The back-end USB-IF has always taken a manual approach, with certification and optional logos. Today, the group introduced a new set of banners (PDF) aimed at removing the USB-C 2.1 and USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) 3.1 standards announced earlier this year. Among other changes, new logos show support for USB 4, as well as an increase in the maximum USB-PD charging power, from a maximum of 100W to a new maximum of 240W.
The new logos are fast and charging, and different versions can be used to package the devices, as well as the cables and ports themselves. As usual, since the use of these banners is not mandatory, you can expect approval of these banners. But buying USB-IF-certified and label-certified accessories from reputable vendors is still probably the easiest way to prevent fraud and using cables and chargers that do what they say.
