Ill try to be as brief as possible. TL;DR: How to use my 3A 5V USB-C charger to power a dumb device that needs 5V 3A to run.
My goal: I want to have a nightstand, that can charge 3 devices at the same time. Doesn't matter how fast.
What I have done so far is, made a board, set out 3 pairs of + and - , to each port that will have a wire connecting to the phone I'll need to charge.
I have a USB-C receptacle (which I am going to attach to my wires) and a USB-C cable. I am going to use an Anker charger (5V 3A output).
I did some research on USB-C and it's very complicated, CC pins and 5.1k ohms resistance and what not.
I am used to old USB cables in which I would just connect VCC and GND and it would supply power.
My question is: Can I just connect wires from the USB-C receptacle VBus and GND pins and it will work and provide the 5V 3A output just like those old cables? Or do I need those pull up and pull down resistors and all that complex stuff which I have no idea what they are.
Please go easy on me as I am new to the world of using USB-C and I want to use it.
