GaNFast Challenge #1: Fast-charging iPhone 10 – Apple 5W Sugarcube vs. Xiaomi 65W

Xiaomi GaNFast is the winner! Charged to 50% in only 37 minutes. Apple charger only reached 20% in the same time.


Silicon chips are history. Gallium nitride (GaN) is rapidly taking market share by enabling fast chargers and power adapters. GaNFast chargers are:

  1. 3x faster in half the size and weight
  2. Lower retail price.
  3. Adopted by Lenovo, Xiaomi, OPPO and many more tier-1 phone and laptop companies.

Gallium nitride (GaN) is a next-generation semiconductor technology that runs up to 20x faster than old, slow silicon (Si), and enables 3x more power, which translates to up to 3x faster charging in half the size & weight. Navitas’ GaNFast power ICs monolithically integrate GaN power, GaN analog and GaN logic circuits on the same chip, to enable faster, reliable, efficient operation.
