Best Buy and Costco sell the version that is USB-IF certified, "Power Delivery (PD)"

Costco has Anker PowerPort PD Nano 20W USB-C Wall Charger White, 2-pack for $34.99

https://www.costco.ca/anker-powerport-p ... 25918.html

Best Buy has single unit for $19.99

Model Number: A2634J21-4

Amazon version is not certified and has Anker's PowerIQ version 3.0 technology.

The A2633 (PowerIQ 3.0 version) in FAQ says "supports both Quick Charge and Power Deliver protocols."

The PowerPort PD Nano is USB-IF certified. Meaning it meets all USB-C and Power Delivery specifications set out by the USB Implementers Forum.

The PowerPort III Nano is not certified. And would not pass certification, as the inclusion of Anker’s PowerIQ 3.0 tech is against USB-C specs.

Anker's PowerIQ technology is safe.
https://www.Anker.com/poweriq3

"Featuring compatibility with Qualcomm Quick Charge, Power Delivery, Apple Fast Charging, Samsung Fast Charging, and more. Charge phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices from a single USB-C port—at their fastest possible speed."

Pixel Slate ships with a 45W charger
https://gtrusted.com/google-pixel-slate

"Note: If you use a low-power charger (20W or less), your Pixel Slate may charge slowly, or perhaps not at all."
