In the version presented by Qualcomm these days the difference from previous versions is that the device which indicates how much energy can receive in order to streamline the load.

Previous versions are already in use on the market in several models of smartphones: Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4, Motorola Moto X, Sony Xperia Z3 or HTC One M9, among others, already uses this technology. The latest equipment with MediaTek chips also has access to similar technology, called Pump Express Plus.

The reversible USB (in its most advanced implementation, i.e. USB 3.1) also offers a capacity of greater than traditional cargo, which allows it to be used for tablets and laptops, which by the size of their batteries would take much time get a charge with a conventional microUSB charger.
