Anker’s new phone sized charger can power a laptop and costs just $30 – TechCrunch

GanFast technology is helping to make chargers smaller and more powerful with up to 3x the charging speed.

TechCrunch reports on Anker’s new charger that is available right now and delivers such benefits in a tiny package, comparing it with Apple’s USB-C charger, they say:

“Even with the small size, the Atom PD1 offers the same power delivery found in Apple’s much larger 30w USB-C charger: 5V @ 3A, 9V @ 3A, 15V @ 2A, 20V @ 1.5A. That’s good enough to recharge any phone, tablets (including the new iPad Pro) and small laptops (including the new 13-inch MacBook Air). “

The future is definitely GaN, as they say:

“I think that within the next 5 years, electronics companies will leave Silicon behind and will shift to GaN components,” said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations, said in a released statement. “We’ve had a great run with Silicon, but it’s time to move onto something better.”
