The charger works fairly rapidly (around 2 hours for a device starting with zero power), blue light flashes briefly when the charger is first plugged in and then on steady while the device is being charged. Once charged the light is extinguished. The changer has been designed to reduce the radiation and overheating risks associated with wireless charging. There is a multi protection system against over-charging, over-voltage, over temperature and over-current. While charging the smartphone can be used, for watching movies, texting messages, or for making phone calls hands-free.

The Thunderbolt-3 passive cable is designed for charging devices over a distance of 2.3 feet/0.7 meters. Passive cables feature around 20 Gbps connectivity.

In a test, the cable worked very well, achieving the same quality on a television as appeared on a laptop screen.

The QC 3.0 fast charger is a power adapter also works with Samsung and Apple products. The power adapter adapter enables the user to charge their phone up to four-times faster, when compared with standard chargers.
