USB PD Charger Teardown Video

I was always interested to know what is there in a USB PD charger, what is different inside vs. normal USB Charger.

Recently purchased Portronics USB-PD charger in ~450 INR (was on discount) and took it apart, I was surprised to see the construction and learned a quite a few new things I was wasn’t aware of.

If you are also wondering what is there inside a USB PD Charger, watch this detailed teardown video. I have shared:

  • Details about a typical charger circuit
  • What all is there on USB PD Charger PCB
  • 3 Main ICs used in USB PD charger
  • How it works and negotiates with the device/smartphone

Enjoy the video!
