Bart Perkins: Power to the people's devices

Bart Perkins | March 25, 2014
The new USB Power Delivery spec turns the capabilities of the USB port on their head.

Travel is easier. Travel becomes easier when all devices can be powered from a single power supply with a USB connection on the end. There should be no need to lug a separate charger for each device everywhere. Or worse, to discover at a customer site that you do not have the one power supply you desperately need. As USB PD becomes more common, office buildings, airplanes and hotels will offer direct USB plugs, potentially eliminating the need to carry power supplies.

Now is the time to begin determining how to capitalize on USB PD and what resources, transition plans and infrastructure changes you'll need. Early adoption earns green cred and long green.
