Belkin’s BOOST↑CHARGE™ Dual USB-C PD GaN Wall Chargers 68W gives a damn fast charge, sending a MacBook Pro 15” from no battery at all to 50% in just an hour. Or for an iPhone 8 or later, it goes from nothing to 50% in about 30 minutes.
To really appreciate it though, allow me to give a brief introduction to GaN technology; the substance responsible for creating such a tight, high power package.
Silicon has been the go-to technology of choice for nearly 60 years for semiconductors. It’s quickly coming up to its theoretical limits as Moore’s Law leans harder and harder on it.
Gallium nitride (GaN) is hailed as a strong contender, if not THE successor, to Silicon for semiconductors. Manufactured using metal-organic chemical vapour deposition to combine gallium and nitrogen into a crystal, it’s almost the perfect substance.
Electrons moving through GaN are 30% faster than those moving through Silicon. It’s also 10 times more capable of supporting high voltage designs before failing. It also maintains a smaller footprint by producing less heat and is able to stack closer together. It’s all of these facts that Belkin are taking advantage of in the BOOST↑CHARGE™ Dual USB-C PD GaN Wall Charger 68W.
It has intelligent power sharing. This means if you have a laptop and phone both plugged in at the same time, both the devices will have an optimal amount of charge sent to them.
All of this of course comes with built-in overcurrent and overvoltage protection, so you can charge things with peace of mind. The only thing you’ll be blowing up with this charger is all that downtime you used to have to deal with.
