Samsung 35W Power Adapter Duo was launched in India on Monday. The wall charger offers fast and simultaneous charging to two devices. Samsung says that the brick can charge Android and iPhone smartphones, apart from tablets, laptops, and smartwatches. It is also compatible with wireless chargers. Furthermore, the charger can be used with TWS earbuds and power banks as well. It comes with one USB Type-C and one USB Type-A charging port. Samsung claims that the charger can juice up Galaxy smartphones in 50 percent less charging time.
Samsung 35W Power Adapter Duo provides a maximum of 35W charging via USB Type-C PD (Power Delivery) 3.0 port and a maximum of 15W charging via the USB Type-A port. Samsung says that the adapter supplies up to 35W of power when charging a single device via USB Type-C, and the maximum power output of 35W is reserved for charging PCs only.
Additionally, Samsung says that the Galaxy smartphones can be charged in 50 percent less time. The company says the Samsung fast charging method is supported for Galaxy Note devices (Galaxy Note 10 and higher) and Galaxy S series (Galaxy S10 5G and higher).
Samsung has already revealed that it will gradually remove charger plugs and earphones from in-box device packaging to “help address sustainable consumption issues and remove any pressure that consumers may feel towards continually receiving unnecessary charger accessories with new phones”.
As per the company executives, Samsung has been implementing standardised USB Type-C type charging ports since 2017 making older chargers compatible with newer Galaxy smartphones.
