Can those deliver 100W or more so I can both charge my laptop/tablet/phone and/or transfer data full speed?
The right cable can exceed it. I don't know of any 40 Gbps cables that can't deliver 100 W, but I guess it's possible there will be cables that can't, however unlikely it is.
That said, as you can see, 60 W is the baseline for all USB4 cables.

For phones this is a great move, no more having to carry separate cables for work provided iDevices!

For laptops...not so much. power barrels are usually a stand alone connector that is screwed into the case, and can be easily replaced. USB C ports, OTOH, are a royal PITA to replace and often are impossible unless you are Louis Rossman tier. Any my experience in IT, between heavy thick dock cables that resist curving, connectors having pressure put on them from the laptop being a different height then the wire or the wire being pushed by a book, ece; and general usage, these type C ports do NOT hold up well to repeated strain. They get loose within 6 months, and after 3 years we are seeing a swarm of motherboards with bad USB C connectors that necessitate a (expensive) motherboard replacement.


If that IS part of the design, the stacks of laptops on my desk waiting on new motherboards would say otherwise. They royally failed.
Depending on Laptop most we get still use both barrel or USB C so you can swap between them. Alot of laptops are like this but not all

It is done by using MagSafe charger. I do have an iPhone and i have this magnetic charger (from ali, not the original). It works well and i can use the phone while its charging. Its even better than plugging the cable as i can rotate the phone and position the cable how i want.
I had no idea such thing existed, thank you.
