100W Power Delivery wall chargers are among the most versatile types of chargers that you can own. They have a high power output, so you can fast charge most devices if you charge a single device simultaneously. Even if you’re charging multiple devices simultaneously, the 100W power allocation lets you fast charge many devices.
I’m looking at this VOLTME 100W GaN 3 port PD charger in this review. The charger can be very useful if you own many USB-C devices, so let’s look closer.
As I mentioned, this VOLTME charger’s max output is 100W. You can use the full 100W of Power Delivery if you’re charging a single device at a time from either USB-C 1 or USB-C 2, then you can use the full 100W of Power Delivery. Also, to be clear, the bottom USB-C port is USB-C 1, and the top USB-C port is USB-C 2.
Charging from the USB-A port alone results in a 60W output.
If you charge from both USB-C ports at the same time, then USB-C 1 will output 65W and USB-C 2 will output 30W; Charging from the USB-C 1 port and the USB-A port results in a 65W and 30W split of power, while charging from USB-C 2 and the USB-A port results in a shared 24W output.
When you charge from all three ports simultaneously, the USB-C 1 port will output 65W, while the USB-C 2 and the USB-A port will output 12W.
So, for my testing, I first began charging my Excitrus power bank from USB-C 1 and USB-C 2 to check if I could pull out the full 100W of Power Delivery from each port when charging a single device.
Next, I plugged in my Lenovo laptop to the USB-C 2 port, and it could only charge at about 3W-4W, while the Excitrus power bank was charging at 65W from USB-C 1. In this case, the USB-C 1 port was outputting 65W; however, 30W of Power Delivery from USB-C 2 was too slow for my laptop.
So I switched the ports, and my laptop began charging at about 15W from USB-C 1 (usually charging at 30W, but it was almost at full power), while my Excitrus power bank charged at 30W from USB-C 2.
Some other testing I did was charging my Excitrus power bank from USB-C 1 and my Baseus power bank from USB-C 2; this resulted in a 65W and 30W power split. With the two power banks charging, I also plugged in my Galaxy Note 9 to the USB-A port, and my Note 9 standard charged; however, the Baseus power bank that I had charging from USB-C 2 stopped charging, and this is likely because the USB-C 2 output of 12W was not enough for the power bank to recharge with.
That said, the Baseus power bank not charging is more of a device-specific result. That’s because I could simultaneously charge my LG G7 from these USB-C 2 ports, my Note 9 from the USB-A port, and the Excitrus power bank from the USB-C 1 port with charging not stopping for my LG G7.
This VOLTME charger also features PPS super fast charging from USB-C 1 and USB-C 2, as I could super fast charge my Galaxy S20.

Size and Design
Since this VOLTME 100W charger uses GaN, that allows it to be smaller and lightweight. The charger has a length/width of 2.5. inches and a thickness of about 1.2 inches. The VOLTME charger weighs 6 ounces. So it’s a tiny charger that you could fit into your pocket, mainly because it uses a foldable plug for easier portability. When plugging the charger in, a white LED power light at the front turns on.

The VOLTME 100W 3 port GaN Power Delivery charger is much like other 100W chargers I’ve reviewed. You can use the full 100W from either USB-C 1 or USB-C 2 and get high-speed charging for a single device. Even charging multiple devices simultaneously, power allocation is good, and you can get 65W from USB-C 1 at the lowest, which is still a lot of power.
