You are mistaken.

 

However, the technology is also not proprietary to Moto. USB-C chargers that support USB-PD will quick charge the Moto Z, meaning devices that are compatible with the Nexus 5X/6P (and some other newer USB-C devices) will do it.

Please review the post by the forum manager, Matt, which says, "Moto Z uses TurboPower a Motorola technology..."

 

There have been some issues with 5X/6P chargers, but I don't know if the same issues exist with third party chargers.

Re: So my Z stopped Turbo Charging

USB-C chargers that do USB-PD should work with Moto Z devices, but it's tricky because it's also possible for cables to be out of spec or lack the compliant identification chip which may cause strange issues or prevent higher current charging, so it's hard to make any guarantees. Smiley Sad Honestly it's a bit of a minefield and I hope things improve in the future.

And the next part of that sentence was "which supports the standard for Type USB". Key word being "standard".

Sorry, but we can't assume that any charger that supports USB-PD will charge at the same rate as the in-box charger since the technology is proprietary (which is why I cut the quote short).  It could, but we don't know that for sure without testing.
