GaN Enables 14mm-Thin 45W Wall ChargerDecember 07, 2018 by Paul Shepard
RAVPower's flagship PD charger packs all of the benefits of USB Power Delivery (PD) technology into perhaps the thinnest charger ever made. By doing away with traditional silicon components in favor of hyper-efficient gallium nitride, the new 45W GaN Charger is noticeably more compact than previous models. Despite this radical decrease in size, the 45W GaN Charger's performance matches or exceeds its competition in every metric.
The new 45W GaN Charger is the thinnest wall charger on the market thanks to revolutionary GaN technology, bringing you a pocket-friendly charger for MacBooks.
It's made to deliver full-speed charging for complete compatibility with phones, tablets, laptops, and other USB-powered devices. And it delivers faster charging with charge with speeds 2.5X faster than standard 5V/1A chargers for a quicker recharge. Up to 50% in only 30 minutes.
RAVPower's 45W GaN Charger is based on USB Power Delivery, a new standard capable of supplying five to ten times the wattage of conventional USB, enabling unprecedentedly fast charging across all devices.
USB PD doesn't discriminate between devices: PD is backward compatible with devices designed for other USB standards, like 2.0, 3.0, and type-C. It intelligently delivers an appropriate amount of power based on the architecture of the device to which it is connected.
USB PD is a two-way street: One of the most exciting developments in recent USB technology is two-way charging. This means that, for example, your tablet could be used to power a portable hard drive via the charge port. This functionality unlocks bold new possibilities for consumers and manufacturers alike.
