One of the biggest problems with Laptops With high-end hardware, especially gaming, you will need to carry a bulky charging adapter with you. For example, the MSI GT76 Titan DT 10SGS comes with two charging adapters. Sometimes the entire “charging kit” is so heavy that you can use the gaming laptop as a desktop PC.
To make high end Windows laptops more portable, especially gaming laptops, and too USB Type C more useful, the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) has announced that it will increase its Power capacity from 100 W to 240 W. This means that most laptops can now be charged natively via the USB Type-C port, except for the laptop models that require a power consumption of 330 W or more. With USB Type-C supporting up to 240W power consumption, it should fit most models and also take the weight off the charger off you.
However, existing USB Type-C cables and adapters cannot support 240W recording. You will need to purchase a new Type-C EPR USB Cable and Charging Adapter that support 240W charging. According to The USB-IF, EPR means “Extended Power Range” and has a visible label to separate it from other low capacity USB cables. An EPR cable can also support up to 5A and 50V.
“All EPR cables must be visibly marked with EPR cable identification symbols in accordance with USB-IF. This is required so that end users can visually confirm that the cable supports up to PDP = 240W as defined in the USB-PD specification, ”it said in a statement.
Even with an increased charge capacity of 240W, the USB Type-C may not be useful for powering high-end gaming desktops or game consoles, which generally require more than 650W. But your life becomes a lot easier when you carry your office laptop.
