Safety Warnings

Caution WARNING: HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION; READ BEFORE USE TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DISCOMFORT, PROPERTY DAMAGE, INCLUDING DAMAGE TO YOUR 30W USB-C Charger ACCESSORIES OR ANY CONNECTED DEVICES, AND OTHER POTENTIAL HAZARDS

Handling

Handle your 30W USB-C Charger with care. You may damage it if you disassemble, drop, bend, burn, crush, or puncture it. Do not use a charger with a damaged enclosure, damaged or bent plug blades, or other form of physical damage. Using a damaged 30W USB-C Charger may cause overheating or injury. Do not expose your charger to liquids, which can cause a short circuit and overheating. Stop using your charger if it gets wet. Do not attempt to dry it using an external heat source. Do not use the charger outside or in wet locations, such as near a sink, bathtub, or shower stall. Never touch the charger with wet hands.

The 30W USB-C Charger is designed to work best in ambient temperatures between 32° and 104° F (0° and 40° C), and should be stored between ambient temperatures of -22° and 158° F (-30° and 70° C). Do not expose your 30W USB-C Charger to temperatures above 113° F (45° C), such as on a car dashboard or near a heating vent, as this may damage the 30W USB-C Charger, overheat the battery, or pose a risk of fire. Keep your 30W USB-C Charger away from heat sources and out of direct sunlight. If your device becomes too hot, disconnect it from its power source if it is plugged in, move it to a cooler place, and do not use it until it has cooled. Your 30W USB-C Charger is designed to work best at an altitude of up to 16404 ft (5000m).

This charger is designed to work with Google USB-C® devices. Be sure the charger and the device it’s plugged into are well ventilated when in use or charging. Using damaged cables or chargers, or charging when moisture is present, can cause fire, electric shock, injury, or damage to your device or other property. When charging your device, make sure the charger is plugged into a socket near your device and is easily accessible. Avoid charging your device in direct sunlight.

30W USB-C Charger was designed to be compliant with the USB Type-C® specification and, as such, is capable of 5V at 3A; 9V at 3A; 15V at 2A; 20V at 1.5A when used with USB PD enabled devices, and is capable of up to 11V at 3A; 16V at 2A; 21V at 1.5A (max 30W) for USB PD 3.0 PPS enabled devices. Use of this charger with devices and cables that are not compatible with the voltage and current shown on its label, and/or that are not compliant with the USB Type-C specification, may result in injury, and permanent damage to the device and/or charger. This charger is a certified Limited Power Source (LPS) per IEC 60950-1 and classified PS2 per IEC 62368-1. Output currents higher than 3A are only enabled when using a cable rated higher than 3A, such as a cable with e-marker rated for 5A.

Repair & Service

Do not attempt to repair your 30W USB-C Charger yourself. Disassembling the charger may cause injury or may damage it.

Contact customer service if your 30W USB-C Charger isn’t working properly or has been damaged. For more information, visit g.co/pixelcare.

Powering Other Devices

This charger is designed to work with Google USB-C® devices. Be sure the charger and the device it is plugged into are well ventilated when in use or charging. Using damaged cables or chargers, or charging when moisture is present, can cause fire, electric shock, injury, or damage to your device or other property. When charging your device, make sure the charger is plugged into a socket near your device and is easily accessible. Avoid charging your device in direct sunlight.

When disconnecting the charger from a power outlet, pull on the charger, never on the cable. Do not twist or pinch the USB cable, and do not force a connector into a port.

Prolonged Heat Exposure 

The charger generates heat during normal operation and complies with applicable surface temperature standards and limits. Avoid prolonged, direct or indirect skin contact when the device is in use or charging because exposing skin to hot surfaces for a long period of time may cause discomfort or burns. Do not sleep on or with your charger or a device it is charging, or cover them with a blanket or pillow. Be aware of this issue if you have a physical condition that affects your ability to detect heat against your skin.

Child Safety

This device is not a toy. Your 30W USB-C Charger may contain (or may come with) small parts, plastic elements, and parts with sharp edges that may cause an injury or create a choking hazard. Children have strangled on cords and cables. Keep the 30W USB-C Charger’s cords and cables out of the reach of children (more than 3 feet (0.9 meters) away) and do not allow them to play with the 30W USB-C Charger and its accessories. They could hurt themselves or others, or could accidentally damage the 30W USB-C Charger. Consult a physician immediately if small parts are swallowed.

Disposal, Transportation, & Recycling

Dispose of your charger in accordance with local regulations. Do not dispose of it in normal household waste. Improper disposal may lead to fire, explosion, and/or other hazards. Do not open, crush, heat above 113° F (45° C), or incinerate. For more information on recycling your device, visit g.co/HWRecyclingProgram.

Environmental Restrictions

To prevent damage to your charger’s parts or internal circuits, do not use or store it in dusty, smoky, damp, or dirty environments. Keep it away from heat sources and out of direct sunlight.

Explosive Atmospheres

Do not use your charger where flammables or explosives are stored (e.g., in gas stations, fuel depots, or chemical plants). Do not use it where blasting operations are in progress, or in potentially explosive atmospheres such as in areas where the air contains high levels of flammable chemicals, vapors, or particles (such as grain, dust, or metal powders). Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death. Observe all notices and signs where these hazards might exist.

Proper Handling and Usage

Follow these guidelines when using, storing or cleaning your charger:

Operating Temperature

Do not use or charge the charger at ambient temperatures lower than 0°C (32°F) or higher than 40°C (104°F).

Care & Cleaning

Unplug the charger before cleaning, during lightning storms, or when unused for extended periods of time. Use a clean, soft, and dry cloth to clean the charger. Do not use any chemical detergent, powder, or other chemical agents (such as benzene) to clean the charger.

Service & Support

30W USB-C Charger should only be repaired by Google or a Google authorized service provider. For online help and support, visit g.co/pixel/help.
