Soon, laptops will be able to use USB ports for charging
Information on the Internet indicates that soon it will be possible to charge laptops via USB ports.
What is the basis of this revolutionary decision?
USB ports are used to solve many different situations - connecting external memory, peripherals, a keyboard backlight at night, or even to heat a cup of hot water to a laptop. As it turned out, soon these ports will also serve as a socket for charging a laptop. All thanks to the USB PD standard. This will allow the computer to receive about 100 watts of energy more than is possible with the current standard 3.0 used.
Of course, such a connector also supports current functions (for example, the ability to download data or connect peripheral devices). The first computers with USB ports that support the new standard will appear in the next, 2014.
