Aukey has launched a new member of its Omnia series of chargers. It is rated for the Power Delivery (USB-PD) standard; however, unlike some of its high-powered type-C siblings, this Nano goes at 20 watts (W). The OEM hints that this ultra-compact accessory would be ideal for Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 line.

Aukey has strongly suggested that its latest power brick is designed with future iPhone 12 users in mind. This is because the new Omnia Nano charger supports USB-PD 3.0 20W charging, a standard also thought to be destined for the upcoming Apple smartphone upgrades. The accessory-maker may also allude to rumors that the first-party charger that will support it is to be a separate purchase in its new promotional material.

Accordingly, Aukey urges consumers to "future-proof" themselves with an Omnia Nano 20W. This new product weighs only 33 grams, and measures 1.13 x 1.13 x 1.2 inches - or about half the footprint of an original Apple 18W charger. It also supports this rate (in combinations of DC 9V/2A or 12V/1.5A, as well as 5V/3A), although its top spec is 9V/2.22A (which is the definition of USB-PD 3.0).

The OEM also asserts that the new little power brick, which has 1 USB type C port and also supports the Quick Charge 2.0 standard, would also be compatible with devices such as the Nintendo Switch, some iPads and perhaps even some older MacBooks. The Aukey Omnia Nano 20W will be available in black or white through this company's own site, although its pricing has yet to be mentioned.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
