Google's new Pixel 2 phones support even faster charging (update: not quite)

We already knew that the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL both support fast charging and unlike some other companies actually ship with a fast charger in the box, but did you know that you can get even faster charging speeds with a more powerful adapter?

The Google Pixel 2s ship with an 18-watt Type-C + PD power adapters, but new this year is that the phones can actually support 27W charging from compliant PD chargers, according to Google's Benson Leung, known for his reviews of USB-C cables and chargers.

So if you do get one of those more powerful 27-watt chargers, you will be able to charge the Pixel 2s even faster and that's great news.

Update: And it seems that Leung has made a mistake this time around. Here is his clarification about the whole situation:
