What is GaN?

As the demand for a faster charge grows rapidly, a new charging technology has been introduced into the market - known as GaN (gallium nitride) technology. It has been said all around that GaN is proven to be superior in faster and more efficient power charging than others because of its high power efficiency. But what exactly is GaN and why is it surpassing all the other chargers in the market? 


To put it simply, Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a material excellent for charging technologies. It can output a great deal of power without requiring as much space, produce less heat despite having high wattage, and is undeniably more power-efficient. These features basically describe the perfect charger that is compact, safe from fire hazards, and most importantly, charges your devices at 3x faster than normal speed! 

GaN vs. Silicon

All electrical appliances require a transistor to regulate current or voltage flow and generate electrical signals while acting as a switch for it. The transistor ensures that the appliance is on if the current is flowing, and switched off if it isn’t. GaN transistors are not only smaller in size but also carry more power than silicon transistors, making GaN-based technology much more power efficient. 

With GaN transistors being more power efficient, it naturally generates less waste heat as well. Less waste heat assures you with a peace of mind that your charger will be less likely to overheat and malfunction. In addition to that, the power efficient GaN transistor in a charger will also manage better at reacting to events such as overload, over-current or over-voltage - all while giving your device a quick recharge.

Simply put, chips made of GaN will be faster, smaller, and more power-efficient than those made of silicon. And with these features alone, power devices based on GaN significantly outperform silicon-based devices.
The new GaN technology is now here and making things easier for all of us, but how? Because of it’s mere material, GaN-based chargers provide an array of benefits for users in search of a travel-friendly, quick, and safe charge for their devices. Here are some reasons why! 

Benefits of GaN

Small Yet Powerful

GaN-based chargers are capable of conducting far higher voltage and thus does not require as many components as the regular silicon charger - this allows developers to create a charger model that is much smaller in size without sacrificing power or safety!

This makes GaN chargers far more portable and travel-friendly, giving you the perfect lightweight fast charging device! 

High-Speed Charging

If you’re tired of always having to wait for your devices to charge fully before leaving the house, GaN chargers will be just the right fit for you. With efficiency 3 times faster than regular speed, your energy-draining devices will be all charged up in no time. 

Safer Charge

GaN chargers give you the assurance of a safe charge with its ability to stay cool despite charging devices at high speeds. With it’s reduced waste heat discharge, your worries about short circuits and fire hazards will be at its minimum. 

The Future is GaN

With all that being said and the increasing pursuit of ultra-fast power supply and charging, GaN is gradually becoming a new alternative and the future replacement of silicon.
