Note20 with dual usb-c adapter

As the number of smartphones with USB Type-C earphones increases, some users are using dual adapters that help them to use USB Type-C earphones and a quick charger at the same time.

Important tips to keep in mind

Some dual adapters may overheat or prevent sound from the earphones when the charger and the earphones are used at the same time. Make sure you are using a USB Type-C cable or single type adapter with your phone.

Dual adapters that don’t meet the USB standard are especially likely to cause defects, so it is recommended that you do not use those adapters. Here are some other reasons to avoid them:

  • Adapters overheating or damage to the earphones may occur when a charger and earphones are connected at the same time using a dual adapter

  • Earphones may not work when charging with a dual adapter

Be sure to check the safety and performance of products before purchasing or using other manufacturer’s accessories.
