    It uses Huawei SuperCharge, so you need to buy SuperCharge chargers for your car to fully utilise it (or if you want extra chargers at home). I think even the charging cable has special additional pins

    Not in our case, I told my mom to use her old Samsung S5 brick to charge the [P20 pro] phone and it works just fine, its not super charging but works.


    Using the words proprietary standard is contradictory.

    Yeah it works, but doesn't charge at the fastest rate.

    Q3: My smartphone came with a Quick Charge certified wall charger in the box. Can I also use an adapter from another manufacturer to charge?

    Look for the Qualcomm Quick Charge logo. Only accessories that pass UL certification can use the Quick Charge logo, since they've been tested for compatibility and interoperability. Any Quick Charge certified adapter can rapidly charge any device that has Quick Charge enabled.

    You can use other manufacturers chargers, but it will charge at a slower rate. The proprietary quick charge is mostly a minus if you have already invested in quick chargers that use a different implementation. IE you bought a couple Qualcomm quick chargers and although they will charge Huawei phones, you are missing out on using their full potential
