Nexus 6P Charging Optimization

I’m a Nexus 6P user of 2 years now and I am still confused about what Anker cables & chargers to purchase for charging optimization.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated because I love the Anker quality but I need to find the right products.

On a side note, my wife uses the Pixel 1 so we may share some charging capabilities from time to time. Optimizing the 6P is priority in my purchasing decisions but compatibility has a value.

Thanks for the help ANKER lovers!

I just looked up the charging standards for the Nexus 6P - wow! I had no idea that google had come up with its own proprietary charging standard. I don’t know of any Anker products that specifically meet that standard, but you might want to try your luck with a USB-PD port. I would think that would be the best chance for finding a charger that will still fast-charge your Nexus 6P (and also your wife’s Pixel). Any of the Anker wall chargers that have a USB-C port should support USB-PD.

As for cables - all of the Anker cables that I have tried support some variant of fast charging (Qualcomm Quick Charge for USB-A to Micro-USB/USB-C and USB-PD for USB-C to USB-C). I think that, if you buy USB-C to USB-C cables, they’ll support USB-PD, and hopefully charge your 6P at a decent speed.

Keep in mind that this is all conjecture - my S8 uses a Qualcomm Quick Charge standard, so I don’t have any personal experience with this.

One final note: my phone will fast charge using the PowerIQ standard that Anker offers, so you might still get a decent charging speed off of a PowerIQ port (although I think that it is less likely to be successful than a USB-PD port).

Why would you recommend a micro usb cable when the phone (Nexus 6P/ Pixel) they are asking about utilizes USB C?


Oh. Didn’t know that

Oh. Sorry
Thought it’s micro
