Living A Slim GaN Life




I got a little surprise for Christmas from my parents.  I wasn't expecting them to use my Amazon Wishlist but they did and they got me a Ravpower 45W GaN Wall Charger. Gallium Nitride (GaN) allows the circuitry in chargers to be much smaller.  You can read more in the whitepaper here.

I thought my Google Pixel USB-C to AC Adapter was small, but the RavPower Wall Charger was just obscenely small. It can charge my Google Pixelbook, Pixel, Pixel 3, Nintendo Switch, Razer Stealth just fine. 





They're getting smaller, minus the actual USB-C cable.  I'll put it thru some tests over the next few weeks to see how it holds up.
