These chargers can potentially charge your phone even faster, but often they only work with specific brands.

How do I tell if my phone is rapid or regular charging?

      Check the battery charging status on your phone. Most will include the term 'charging rapidly' or similar or show an icon to indicate the phone is charging rapidly. Understand though most phones will in general automatically reduce their charging rates as the battery charge level gets closer to 100%. You may see the phone charging rapidly from 0% to say 80%, then a reduced rate from 80% to 90% and then a lower rate above 90%. Check your phone owner's manual for specifics for your device.  

Can I use my existing USB cable with the Steam Power Charger?

 

       Yes, provided it has a USB-C connector. We recommend though that you use our optional certified USB cables. These cables are tested and guaranteed to work with the Steam Power Charger up to the maximum rated power. The are also designed to complement the Steam Power Charger with a neat appearance without lots of tangled wires. The cables are long enough to check your phone without having to disconnect it from the Steam Power Charger.
