If you’ve been looking for a new USB-C Power Delivery wall charger, then you’ve likely noticed that there are somewhat new chargers on the market that are called GaN wall chargers. GaN means Gallium Nitride (GaN). Chargers that use it can be smaller and still output lots of power; in comparison, Silicone chargers are larger and heavier when outputting the equivalent amount of power. This lets you use Power Delivery wall chargers with sizes that you may not believe, and we’re talking about charging brick outputs but in the form factor of just 2-inch dimensions.
If you’re someone that owns a single or multiple USB-C chargeable devices, then we think that it’s time for you to own a GaN wall charger if you don’t already. Every year, more devices are becoming USB-C Power Delivery compatible. The charging speed they’re compatible with goes higher, which is good because you can charge up your portable devices faster. That said, there are so many GaN wall chargers on the market that now have different max outputs, different amounts ports, and different types of ports.
That’s why in his guide, we’re covering GaN wall chargers that are perfect for charging, just your USB-C laptop and other chargers that can be used to charge multiple devices that you may own. GaN is the future, and it’s a good one.
UGREEN 100W 4-Port GaN Power Delivery Wall Charger
We’re starting strong with this UGREEN Power Delivery wall charger that has four ports along with a 100W max power output. The use of four ports with GaN wall charger has become more common, and it may be one of the most reliable types to own because you get the power and the variety of charging multiple devices. However, know that the price for these types of wall chargers is on the higher side.
This UGREEN charger has three USB-C PD ports and one USB-A port. To use the full 100W output, you have to charge a single device only, and the USB-C 1 port can 100W. Charging multiple devices causes the 100W power output to split up. Such as charging two devices via USB-C 1 and USB-C 2; this makes a 65W and a 30W power split between the ports. Of course, 65W and 30W are still enough power to charge two laptops.
Charging four devices with this UGREEN wall charger is where the power really gets split up. That’s because USB-C 1 outputs 45W, USB-C 2 outputs 30W, and the USB-C 3 and the USB-A port output 10W. So USB-C 1 on this wall charger is the go-to for charging laptops.
Then there’s one of the main reasons we made this guide, which would be because of the size of this UGREEN 100W charger. The charger has a length/width of 2.7 inches and a thickness of 1 inch. We’re talking about a 100W power output, along with four ports that can fit into your pocket. Now that is the power of GaN.
