Currently, Gallium Nitride (GaN) chargers rule the roost. In terms of size, GaN chargers are more compact than existing chargers. As a replacement for silicon, GaN can conduct voltages significantly higher than silicon over time. At the same time, less energy is lost to heat, and current is transferred more effectively as a result.
This means that GaN chargers with several ports in a compact form factor can be used to charge multiple devices simultaneously. The A19 65W GaN multi-function-HUB charging set from Acefast, on the other hand, features a brand-new concept from the company. A docking station for USB-C devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones rather than a charger.
On the charger-HUB, there is a USB-C port, a USB-A port, and an HDMI port that may be used to stream media to the device.
A USB-C connector can charge your device up to 60W PD and provide up to 4K video and digital audio signals to the connected device, whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, or PC. With an HDMI connector attached, you can use an HD display, such as a monitor, HDTV, or projector, to expand the screen of your device.
When you have a spare USB 3.0-A port, you can utilize it to connect your USB peripherals, such as a keyboard or mouse. These USB devices can be powered by this port’s 5V/1A (5W) output, as can all other USB-A ports.
Since managing the visible connections used to be a hassle with this charger, I can now project a phone and a PC onto a large TV or monitor without using a separate docking station. Furthermore, because the charger-size HUBs are comparable to regular chargers, plugging them into the wall isn’t an issue.
PD3.0’s 60W fast charge protocol is one of the most cost-effective methods for charging various gadgets. Apart from PD3.0, the USB-C port is compatible with numerous charging protocols, such as Apple 2.4A, Samsung 5V-2A, Samsung AFC, QC4.0+/3.0/2.0, and PPS. All USB-C charging devices are covered by the broad range of compatibility. For example, a MacBook Pro 13-inch may be fully charged in under two hours using 60W power.
An aluminum alloy braided 6-foot USB-C to USB-C cable that supports PD 100W maximum charging is available. The cable can even offer higher power if you already have a 100W charger or higher. Only 65W of power efficiency can be achieved with the Acefast GaN charger-HUB.
Within an hour of using the charger-HUB, all of the current Android devices can be fully charged. For some older devices that don’t have fast-charging capabilities, the charging period could be extended to around two hours.
In real life, the charge-HUB is a great add-on for your laptop that lets you expand the screen while it is charging.
Additionally, it’s a great addition to the Switch’s accessories lineup. In addition to charging and video output, the one USB-C connector on the Switch is now capable of both. Even though the charger-HUB can transfer 4K signals, the Nintendo Switch only supports 1080P resolution.
As long as your device’s USB-C port supports 4K video output, the charger-HUB can also project 4K material with incredibly low latency. Additionally, the USB-A port’s architecture lends itself well to future extension. Using the charger-HUB, a gaming peripheral like a gamepad or mouse can be attached without using up any of the device’s interfaces.
From laptops to smartphones to power banks, the A19 65W charger-HUB can quickly charge practically all of your devices via a variety of protocols. The charger-HUB can also save you a lot of time if you want to use an external display or TV.
