AUKEY debuts GaN-based power chargers at CES
At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020) in Las Vegas (7-10 January), AUKEY is debuting its Omnia Series, a new line of five gallium nitride (GaN)-based power delivery (PD) chargers (available online and at retail stores in second-quarter 2020) delivering fast charging speeds.
Designed to provide users with smaller, lighter and more powerful mobile charging, the chargers in the Omnia Series are up to 66% smaller compared with stock MacBook 13-inch chargers. Whether it’s getting more from a new device or unlocking greater performance from an older one, the Omnia Series offers a range of products with varying levels of power and size, says the firm.
“As the producer of the world’s smallest PD chargers, the Omnia Series is a natural next step in our line and one that delivers on our promise while creating a reliable, compact charging experience,” says AUKEY’s CEO Lu Haichuan.
With the Omnia Series, AUKEY is introducing OmniaChip, a range of new integrated circuits built into the five chargers in the new line. Developed in partnership with Navitas Semiconductor Inc of El Segundo, CA, USA (which introduced the first commercial GaN power ICs), the chips are designed to increase both switching speeds and energy savings.
The new line also features AUKEY’s proprietary Dynamic Detect technology, which maximizes charging efficiency. Suitable for people who want to streamline charging multiple devices with one charger, the Omnia Series supports a broad range of devices including the MacBook Pro 2018, Dell XPS 13, iPad Pro, iPhone (multiple models), Google Pixel devices, and Nintendo Switch.
