Baseus 2C1A GaN Fast Charger – 60W PD Power But In Most Compact Form!
Design & Appearance
Baseus 2C1A GaN Fast Charger appears to have two color options which are black and white. The casing is Polycarbonate. Moreover, instead of having a traditional square shape, it has a rectangular shape. It appears like a 5V standard phone charger was stretched.
There’s a laser printed logo on the front. The overall appearance is simple and plain with no fancy design. It does have a working status indicator.
While holding in hand, it appears to be the most compact 60W PD charger. You can easily wrap the charger in your hand. Such a compact charger will have great convenience in carrying and storing. Furthermore, to improve its compatibility the GB pin is foldable.
Compared with the ordinary charger with the same three USB interfaces but the PD power is 60W, the volume advantage is obvious, which is the obvious feature of the use of GaNcomponents in the charger.
In the three USB interfaces, two are USB Type-C and one is standard USB 3.0. The official claims to support fast charging protocols such as PD, QC, FCP, SCP, AFC, PE+, etc. In other words, the existing mainstream smartphones and devices are currently supported. The GaN has the advantage of :
Multi-port Simultaneous Output instead of Mutli-port different Output
It has the following relevant parameters:
Input: AC 100-240V~, 50~60Hz, 1.5A
Max USB-C1 output: 3.3V-11V/3A, 5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/3.25A
