GaN is a new type of semiconductor material. It has the characteristics of large band gap, high thermal conductivity, high temperature resistance, radiation resistance, acid and alkali resistance, high strength and high hardness. It is widely used in new energy vehicles, rail transit, smart grids, semiconductor lighting, and next-generation mobile communications, and is known as the third-generation semiconductor material. With the cost of technological breakthroughs under control, gallium nitride is currently widely used in consumer electronics and other fields, and chargers are one of them.
The most intuitive feeling of the charger using GaN gallium nitride element is that it is small in size and light in weight. It also has greater advantages than ordinary chargers in terms of heat generation and efficiency conversion, greatly improving our experience.
Here is the comparison between Anker GaN power adapter and Apple silicon power adapter.
Well compared with silicon power devices, the application technology of GaN power devices is relatively high, and most charger manufacturers in the industry are still in their infancy. However, i believe it will come to our life soon, let’s just wait it.
