Power and charging technology specialist AUKEY grabbed a lot of attention in January at CES 2020 when it announced its brand-new Omnia USB-C charger series, including the ultra-compact Omnia 100W model, just 32mm thick, offering an ideal combination of power and portability. AUKEY now confirmed that it is accepting orders for the new charger, which uses the latest gallium nitride (GaN) technology.

The new Omnia 100W USB-C charger comes integrated with AUKEY's latest OmniaChip, which makes use of state-of-art gallium nitride (GaN) circuitry to produce a charger that is significantly smaller and more efficient than traditional silicon-based chargers of the same power. GaN also has superior thermal characteristics to silicon which allows the charger to operate at a lower temperature.

The Omnia 100W charger is ideal for charging laptops such as Apple latest 16" MacBook Pro, and is only half the size of Apple's 96W charger despite offering more power. Such a powerful charger is also easily able to fast-charge any USB Power Delivery device at the maximum speed it supports, including Nintendo Switch, iPad Pro, and a range of smartphones including all the latest iPhones.

Being 50% the size of comparable chargers offers impressive portability, and this characteristic is heightened by the inclusion of foldable prongs for US mains (users in the UK will have to resign to using a power plug that is now larger than the 100W charger itself :). For the lucky users in the USA, Canada, Mexico and Japan, this means the charger takes up even less space in a laptop bag and will not scratch other devices.

"Having a 100W laptop charger that is just as compact and portable as a regular phone charger is a real game-changer, and means you really can pack a single charger for all your charging needs, from the most power-hungry MacBook Pro to an iPhone 11," says AUKEY.

The Omnia 100W charger is available for pre-order now. There's also the ultra-compact dual-port Omnia Duo 65W, which makes use of the same OmniaChip technology.
