Gallium nitride is a new type of semiconductor material, which has the characteristics of large forbidden band width, high thermal conductivity, high temperature resistance, radiation resistance, acid and alkali resistance, high strength and high hardness. As the cost of technological breakthroughs is controlled, gallium nitride is currently widely used in consumer electronics and other fields, and chargers are one of them.
At present, the basic material of most industries is silicon, but as the limit of silicon is gradually approaching, many industries have begun to work hard to find more suitable substitutes. This is how gallium nitride has entered people's eyes.
Advantages of GaN charger
Simply put, gallium nitride is known as the third-generation semiconductor core material. Compared with silicon, gallium nitride has a wider band gap, which also means that gallium nitride can withstand higher voltages than silicon and has better conductivity. In short, with the two materials in the same volume, gallium nitride is much more efficient than silicon. If gallium nitride replaces all current electronic equipment, it may reduce the power consumption of electronic products by another 10% or 25%.
In many power management products, gallium nitride is a stronger presence. At the application level, using gallium nitride as a charger can achieve faster charging and smaller volume.
Compared with traditional chargers, gallium nitride (GaN) chargers have features such as smaller size and higher efficiency.
For example, a charging head made of gallium nitride material can achieve more power when the volume is about the same as Apple's 5W.
GaN chargers are not only more effective in transmitting current, but also have less energy loss. Therefore, we will get more energy when charging. When the components are more efficient at transferring energy to the device, fewer components are needed.
This is also an important reason why we tend to choose GaN chargers:
It is 50% smaller than the standard 61W MacBook charger
2.5 times faster than standard 1A output
It can charge all USB-C devices from mobile phones to laptops
New technologies such as gallium nitride (GaN) are expected to significantly improve many aspects of power management, power generation and power output.
For users, the most direct benefit is that it can bring faster charging, but the volume will not increase. Because of the characteristics of the GaN gallium nitride material itself, if the charger uses GaN gallium nitride as the material, not only can it be small in size and light in weight, it also has a very significant increase in heat generation and efficiency conversion. Many products, such as CPUs, charging heads, etc., will significantly decrease their heating efficiency.
Disadvantages of GaN charger:
Gallium nitride materials also have shortcomings. GaN semiconductors are relatively expensive and have limited production capacity. It is not easy to replace silicon in the short term.

Chips made of GaN will be faster, smaller, more energy-efficient, and ultimately cheaper.
