Anker Introduces New Line of GaNPrime Chargers | Digital Trends Spanish

Anker has just introduced the next generation of gallium nitride (GaN) technology with a series of new and powerful chargers that can keep up with even your most power-hungry mobile devices on the go while allowing you to travel light.

The company’s new line of GaNPrime chargers offer power levels from 65 watts to 150 watts, while being up to 53% smaller than most other chargers. And thanks to the new PowerIQ 4.0 feature enabled by the latest advances in GaN technology, Anker multiport GaNPrime chargers can dynamically adjust power output on the fly to ensure every connected device receives the current it needs for the fastest charge. and efficient.


Dynamic power allocation

Among the most innovative features of Anker’s new line of GaNPrime chargers is the ability to intelligently detect and prioritize the device with the lowest battery level, rather than simply targeting the device with the highest capacity. This not only ensures charging power goes to the devices that need it most, but also maximizes charging efficiency by allocating power more effectively.

Most modern electronic devices use lithium ion batteries. Due to the chemistry of these cells, charging typically slows as batteries approach full capacity. A charger that prioritizes a large laptop battery that is already at 80% will waste considerable time trying to recharge that battery when that time could be more efficiently used to quickly charge a near-depleted smartphone or tablet. Anker’s PowerIQ 4.0 ensures the best use of your charging time by focusing on fast-charging devices at lower power levels.

PowerIQ 4.0 can also dynamically check and adjust that power distribution every three minutes, which not only ensures power is always going to the devices that need it most, but actually works to reduce charging times overall. For example, Anker notes that a GaNPrime charger can simultaneously power a pair of laptops. 67W 14-inch MacBook Pro while reducing the total charge time by 62 minutes.

The good news is that your laptops, smartphones, and tablets don’t require any special features to support PowerIQ 4.0. Anker promises that its new GaNPrime chargers will be compatible with more than 1,000 devices out of the box.

A positive environmental impact

With their smaller sizes and higher energy efficiency, GaN chargers are also great for the environment. They cost fewer resources to build and ship, and waste less energy transforming power from your wall outlet to your electronic devices.

Anker says its new GaNPrime chargers improve the overall efficiency of this conversion by 2% compared to its previous chargers, which were already ahead of the curve in power efficiency. By using the latest GaN semiconductors instead of traditional charging circuitry, Anker chargers promise to reduce carbon emissions by 30%.

“GaN allows us to completely change the way we charge our electronic devices by offering better power transfer efficiency, faster charging speeds and smaller, more portable chargers,” Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations, said in the release. company press release. “Our partners provided exclusive access to cutting-edge GaN technology that allowed us to create chargers that last longer and are more sustainable.”

Anker GaNPrime Lineup

Anker is offering six new GaNPrime chargers for a variety of uses, with the Anker 747 GaNPrime 150W charger ($110) being the flagship of the line. The Anker 747 offers a total of 150 watts of charging power via three USB-C ports and one USB-A port, in a size not much larger than an AirPods Pro charging case. It’s also 38% smaller. than Apple’s 140W MacBook Pro charger. It’s not compatible with the newly ratified USB-C 2.1 specification, so you’ll only get a maximum of 100 watts out of each USB-C port (and 22.5 watts out of the USB-A port), but that’s more than enough to charge all all but the most power-hungry laptops at top speeds, with enough to spare to charge a smartphone and wearable at the same time.

For those with more modest needs, Anker’s 737 GaNPrime 120W ($95) and 735 GaNPrime 65W ($60) chargers offer two USB-C ports and one USB-A port in more compact sizes. Anker also offers the 733 GaNPrime PowerCore 65W power bank ($100), which can charge up to three devices from a wall outlet at 65 watts or from a built-in battery at 30 watts.

For mobile offices, the Anker 727 GaNPrime 100W Charging Station ($95) offers two AC power ports in addition to a pair of USB-C and USB-A ports, while the Anker 613 GaNPrime 65W USB Power Strip ($95) 70) drops a single USB-A port, providing a more affordable solution for those who don’t need the faster 100-watt charging speeds.
