Gallium nitride chargers are rapidly improving since they were released earlier this year – we started with 30W and 45W chargers, then small stones of 61 W, then a 60 W charger with two USB C ports and there was a small 65 W charger with two USB C ports and a USB-A port in September. But now we may have a new wall charge king, such as Hyper launched a Kickstarter for the HyperJuice 100W GaN charger – which delivers the maximum amount of power that USB-C can deliver below the current standard, in a package that is about the size of a card game.
Here it is, with a total of two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports:
It also has built-in teeth on the back that you fold out so that you can connect it to a power outlet. But be careful not to put it in a wall – the charger protrudes far enough that it looks pretty easy and accidentally gets knocked out:
The charger can push a full 100 watts of power – which you can theoretically feed a powerful 15-inch MacBook Pro and an iPhone 11 Pro simultaneously or a 13-inch Pro and a MacBook Air – because it uses gallium nitride (GaN) , which is more efficient than silicon because it can hold higher voltages and run faster than silicon – which all has the advantage of offering more options for small but powerful chargers such as the HyperJuice.
If this really seems like your dream loader and you want to support it, it seems likely that you get the product that Hyper has promised – the company has a good track record when it comes to crowdfunding, successfully used Kickstarter for marketing and pre-orders in the past . Other Kickstarted products include the Sanho HyperCube, which allows you to add USB and microSD storage to your phone charger, and the HyperJuice USB-C battery pack, the first to support the 100W USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 profile.
Hyper says the HyperJuice 100 W GaN wall charger will start sending to early bird backers in January 2020 (but unfortunately they are already sold out), and to other Kickstarter backers in February 2020. If you now support it on Kickstarter, get it you it is a little cheaper than the expected retail price of $ 99 – but how cheaply depends on what level you buy and how fast you do it.
