    Hi all,

    I’ve just got a double wall socket with a USB-C port on it (5v/3amp) it says (I’m in UK btw).  I’ve noticed a lot of USB-C to USB-C cables are now 20V/5Amp.  If i bought the newer 20v/5amp cable and plugged it into the 5v/3amp wall socket and then into my phone, would it be ok and just charge at a slower rate that the cable is capable of or will it blow the socket by trying to pull 20v/5amps?

    Thanks

    Kev

    Does the wall socket have any other type ports, as often with the cheaper sockets, 3 amps etc. will be the total to all USB  ports (shared)

    In your case, the USB cable is just like a pipe, so will allow whatever is required by the phone or what can be given by the usb-c wall socket port (whichever is the least)

    MK Wall sockets are really good (if that helps)

    HI,

    Thanks – I have a MK double wall socket (white) which has 1 x USB port and 1 x USB-C port, the USB-C specifically says 5v/3amp above it.

    I’ve attached a pic of a similar looking socket.

    Thanks

    I think yours is – 1 x Type A and 1 Type C USB ports – 3A total shared output

    Either way – cable is good and no chance of it drawing to much current
