Aukey releases its latest 100W USB type C charger
Aukey introduced its new Omnia line of charging accessories at CES 2020; now, the higher-wattage of its wall-warts has been released. This 100W device has the OEM's latest Omni-Chip technology that is based on GaN circuitry to make it considerably smaller than a silicon-powered analog.
GaN is also associated with significant gains in terms of power efficiency compared to this older semiconductor standard, as well as with significant improvements in thermal management while charging. Aukey asserts that the Omnia 100W comes with these advantages, while also being "half the size" of the 96W brick shipped with the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
It is currently available to pre-order on Aukey's website in black or white for US$54.99. However, not all USB type C notebooks are compatible with its 100W top speed (which is facilitated with the Power Delivery (USB-PD) standard). However, they may be more suited to the also-new Omnia Duo 65W.
