Baseus has launched a series of new slim, high-tech third-party chargers equipped with gallium nitride (GaN) technology. One of them is rated to charge 2 devices at up to 60 watts (W) at once. This may make it a good companion for laptops such as the MacBook Pro.

As smartphone battery technology now constantly trends towards the bigger and quicker, chargers to match their demands are increasingly popular mobile device accessories. Baseus is one of a number of companies that make third-party power bricks marketed with claims of juicing phones at these ultra-high rates.

It also claims that its latest series of these products is enhanced with gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC), materials often linked to enhanced power-transfer at lower temperatures.

One of these is marketed as 120 watts (W), as with the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. Then again, its dual USB type C ports has the USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) standard, which allow one to charge at 100W alone or both to go at 60W when used simultaneously. It also has a USB type A port, which Baseus claims to be able to charge at a top rate of 30W.

There is also a 3-port brick in this series rated for up to 65W, and a 45W SKU that can also be used as a power bank. Therefore, its maker imbues these products with claims made by other companies in the recent past.

The 120W version currently sells for US$60 on Amazon, whereas the 65W charger sells for $45 normally, or $35 for Cyber Monday. The 45W charger/power bank is also listed on this platform, but is unavailable at present.
