What is GAN charger – A Must-Have for You | GP Batteries UK

Why GaN Chargers Are the Future of Charging Technology


GP Batteries A GaN charger is a charger built with gallium nitride rather than the more popular silicon. As a result, it is more compact, energy-efficient, and quick to charge than a conventional charger. On the hunt for a charger with superior speed? GP’s 65W GaN Charger is a worthy investment. But what is it about GaN charger that make them a higher-caliber to conventional chargers?

Gallium Nitride vs Silicon – Why Is Gallium Nitride Superior to Silicon?

Gallium Nitride is a binary III/V direct bandgap semiconductor that is well-suited for high-power transistors capable of operating at high temperatures. Since the 1990s, it has been used commonly in light emitting diodes (LED). Gallium nitride gives off a blue light used for disc-reading in Blu-ray.

Additionally, gallium nitride is used in semiconductor power devices, RF components, lasers, and photonics. It can be used to make smaller chips and, as a result, smaller transistors. GaN fast charges fast and can charge faster than silicon and can handle higher power levels, and, as a result, it's ideal for uses such as 5G radio and fast-charging accessories. Furthermore, because it is a superior conductor of electricity, it can withstand more power without overheating.

Why Are GaN Chargers Better?

The GaN technology holds the key to the solution. Gallium nitride, sometimes known as GaN, is a semiconductor material that performs better than silicon. Most electronics are made out of silicon. Although GaAs is a good conductor of electricity, GaN is faster and more efficient.

GaN fast chargers feature a wider bandgap, which enables them to charge gadgets more quickly (Silicon has a 1.12 eV bandgap, while Gallium Nitride has a 3.4 eV bandgap). This indicates that less energy is lost as electrons transition between bands. Due to its wider band gap than silicon MOSFETs, gallium nitride can withstand higher voltages and temperatures. GaN chargers are superior to standard charges for the following reasons:

  • Smaller Eco Footprint
  • Faster Charging Speed
  • More Energy Efficient
  • Smaller in Size
  • Cooler and Safer Charging

GP Batteries’ 65W GaN Charger, backed by the latest GaN Technology, powers all your tech at superior speed.
