The Nekteck 60W GaN Type-C Wall Charger follows the trend of emerging Gallium nitride (GaN) technology to offer a smaller and lighter AC charger. GaN chargers potentially consume less power resulting in lower heat emission thus reducing the risk of chargers overheating. This allows for more efficient charging at lower temperatures when supplying power to most recent USB Type-C notebook PC's, tablets and mobile phones in the market.
By supporting USB Power Delivery 3.0 over Type-C up to 60 watts, the Nekteck 60W GaN Type-C Wall Charger can be used to quickly charge notebook computers and tablets like Apple's 13" MacBook Air (2020), MacBook Pro 2018 and 11-inch iPad Pro (2018) or the Dell XPS 13 9370 and the Google Pixelbook that support USB Power Delivery. You can also charge recent USB Power Delivery 3.0 capable phones like the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Series or Android phones such as the Google Pixel 4 XL and the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ using this Nekteck charger.
The Nekteck 60W GaN Type-C Wall Charger is unique in that there aren't many 60W GaN chargers available in the market (most are supporting 30W or below like the Verizon USB-C Fast Charge Wall Charger and the Anker PowerPort Atom PD 1).
