    What is a GAN charger?

    One question you might have is, what is a GAN charger? and why should you care? GAN is short for Gallium Nitride charger and it replaces the silicon chargers that have been on the market for many years. The biggest benefit of GAN chargers is their ability to keep the heat down, leading to increased output or similar output in a smaller space than silicon-based chargers. Thus, you'll see GAN chargers that are smaller in size compared to traditional chargers. Additionally, we're seeing more speeds with USB PD 3.0 and 3.1, making GAN chargers a great choice. Let's start with a 30-watt GAN charger."

     1. Nomad 30W

    The first gan charger on the list is this tiny 30-watt charger from Nomad. This charger is great, with a single USB-C port capable of providing up to 30 watts of power for any of your devices, including the iPhone 14, which can fast charge with a 30-watt brick. The downside to this charger is that the prongs do not fold, so you're stuck with the prongs sticking out at all times. But still, it is one of the smallest 30-watt chargers on the market, and Nomad produces a lot of other really high-quality Apple and iPhone accessories.

    2. Mophie SpeedPort 30W

    Mophie has an excellent compact USB-C GAN charger as well. This is another 30-watt charger, but it's a little bit bigger, and the reason why is that it has collapsible prongs that pop in and out as needed, which I love. These chargers are perfect for when you need a small option to bring with you. This one from Mophie is a great choice. Not only does it provide up to 30 watts of power, but its compact size and collapsible prongs make it easy to carry with you wherever you go. Whether you're traveling or just need a quick boost for your devices, this charger is a must-have for anyone who values convenience and portability. Additionally, Mophie is a well-respected brand that is known for producing high-quality and reliable charging solutions, so you can trust that this charger will perform flawlessly.

    3. Anker Nano 30W

    I don't have one on hand, which is why it's the last 30-watt charger that I'm going to talk about, but Anchor Anker crushes it on Amazon as a charging brand. Their PowerPort Nano series is very popular, and the latest version comes in a variety of different colors, making it perfectly updated just in time for the latest iPhones. With its compact size and fast charging capabilities, the PowerPort Nano is a great option for anyone looking for a portable and convenient way to keep their devices charged. Whether you're on the go or simply need a quick boost, the PowerPort Nano is a reliable and convenient option that is sure to deliver. As a well-respected brand, Anchor Anker has a strong reputation for producing high-quality charging solutions that are both durable and effective. So if you're in the market for a new 30-watt charger, you can't go wrong with the PowerPort Nano.

    4. Belkin BoostCharge Pro 45W

    So Belkin just released its newest GAN chargers right. There are a couple of different models, including the 45-watt Boost Charge Pro, which is a dual USB-C output wall charger. With its 45-watt output, it is perfect for fast-charging multiple high-powered devices. The prongs on this charger are able to fold back, making it a great portable option to carry around. There are two different ports, and combined, they can output up to 45 watts of power. The first one can output up to 25 watts or 45 watts max, and the second one will do 20 or 45. If you have two high-power devices plugged in, the charge will be split, but if you use a single one, it can get up to 45 watts of power - more than enough to fast charge your iPhone 14 or other devices.

    5. Belkin BoostCharge Pro 65W

    If you'd like a bit more juice, you can opt for the 65-watt Boost Charge Pro Dual USB-C Charger. This version is a tiny bit bigger and has a bit more wattage on the output. The top port can do 45 or 65 watts as its max, and the second port will do 20 or 65 watts. This means you can charge an iPhone on the bottom port with 20 watts, and something much quicker on the top with up to 45 watts. So, it breaks down a bit differently, with a higher output for those higher power devices, such as iPads, MacBook Air, or something like that that need to be charged at the same time with a compact charger. This charger is barely bigger than the 45-watt one. Personally, I lean towards the 65-watt, just to get a little bit more output. It's not much bigger.

     6. Nomad 65W

    I would lean towards the larger output of these two, for a slightly different form factor of a 65-watt charger. We have the Nomad GAN Charger, which is very similar to what Belkin is offering, with two USB-C outputs and folding prongs down the back. The biggest thing here may be just the aesthetic of this charger. I really like the gunmetal gray exterior and black front, as it looks very sleek and has a dark pro look, versus the very white Apple aesthetic of the Belkin ones. It definitely comes down to personal preference. It's not much bigger, but it's a tad thicker than the Belkin one, but is still, a great option if you're looking for a slightly higher middle of the road 65 watt charger.

     7. Satechi 65W

    Another 65-watt option to consider is from Satechi. This charger is very different because it has three output ports. You have folding prongs along the back, and it's kind of tall and skinny. You've got three USB-C PD ports that you can use to charge your devices. What's cool here is that Satechi makes various models of these, all in a very similar footprint, so if you need more or less power, you can choose those options. The 65-watt is a good sweet spot, especially for three devices, because you can fast charge at 30 watts for your iPhone, but you have more wiggle room if you want to charge your Apple Watch, AirPods, iPad, or anything like that at the same time. If you plug in a single high-powered device like a Mac, you can get 65 watts from just one USB-C port. So, check these guys out. There are a few different models to consider, but these are definitely a fan favorites.

     8. Mophie SpeedPort 67W

    I have a second Mophie charger here that is just slightly higher than the others we just looked at. This is a 67-watt GAN charger rather than a 65. I do think it's a little bit larger for a 67-watt charger, but it's not bad at all. It still has built-in prongs along the back and two USB-C ports, and what's nice is that both of them do the same output. They both can do a maximum of 67 watts or a combined 467 watts of total power. I like that you don't have to know if there's a fast one or a slower one - they both do the exact same speeds. This is a great option for those who want a charger with a higher output and need to charge multiple devices at the same time. The built-in prongs also make it a convenient option for on-the-go charging.

     9. Mophie 120W Travel Kit

    I do have one more from mophie to check out. This is mophie's new Gan travel charging kit so it comes in this really nice little felt case with some faux leather accenting the front. You can remove the little elastic strap, and inside you're gonna find everything you need to charge up on the go. We do have our gan charger here, we have a one-and-a-half meter power cable, and then we have two additional cables that are tucked in here. So two cables complete with cable ties that we have available in the kit is a pure USBC to USBC cable on the right and a USBC to lightning cable there on the left. Uh the lightning cable is apple certified so it's an actual MFI-certified lightning cable that you can use for fast charging your iPhone. Then the gan charger itself, which is capable of 120 watts of total power output. So 120-watt gan charger, three USBC, and one USBA with this little kit. It isn't a great option, uh just an awesome thing to be able to take with you, grab your charger, grab your cables, toss in the little pouch, and you're good to go. So 120 watt gan charger from mophie.

     10. Satechi 165W

    This next charger on the list might be hitting the sweet spot for a lot of you. It's from Satecki and is called the Techi 106-Watt Charger. It has a few special features. Firstly, I like the design, it's kind of standard for them, with a figure eight power cable along the back. The power cable comes in the box and it's very easy to swap these out when traveling. If you go around the world and need a different power cable, it's easy to get a different one because they're pretty standard. The power cable connection here is really easy to connect to a bedside or anything like that and it's great for use on your desk. I love it. Secondly, there are four USB-C ports here, PD1, PD2, PD3, and PD4.

    One thing to note about these is that while the total wattage of the ports can only be limited to about 100 watts, the first three ports can all do 100 watts of output when used more or less on their own. The fourth one is capable of 60 watts, so you could have one of the first three up to 100 watts for a 60-inch MacBook Pro and still get 60 watts out of your bottom one.

    They don't label these, which I think is a downside, you don't know that the PD4 port is slower than the rest of them, but now you'll know. This charger does 165 watts, which is a great amount of power above the 65 ones we just looked at. Another nice benefit is that it comes with a tiny little stand, which makes it even better for putting on your desk or nightstand. It fits nice and snug and is a perfect little desktop charger for the desk, nightstand, office, or anything like that with four USB-C ports available and higher wattage output."

      11. Ugreen 200W

    Okay, I get it. You've got your iPhone 14, you've got your iPhone 13, and you have more iPhones, but you have other devices too and you need more power. More power, pulling out a tool time reference for anyone who still watches that show. But we're going to bump it up, so going from 65 or 165 watts all the way up to 200 watts. This is the 200-watt charger from UGreen, UGreen's 200-watt GAN charger. This is pretty cool as well. So, first, the cable has a very nice power cable included in the box. It is removable on the back, a standard Mickey Mouse connector if you've seen those around, but it's just a nice cable that smoothly goes in there. It looks like it was kind of created for this product, not just an off-the-shelf component.

    It has a cable tie built in so you can wrap that up with some Velcro to keep it more manageable. It's a good length of the power cable so it can fit behind desks, beds, and anything like that. On the bottom of the charger, there are four little silicone feet that give a little bit of a raised surface so there's a tiny amount of airflow which will help with heat dissipation you're going to need it because again 200 watts of power output from this charger. So, what are the ports on here? There are six.

    There are six ports on the 200-watt UGreen GAN charger. So the first four of them are USB-C PD ports, and the last two are USB-A for any of those legacy devices that you have out there. I love this because you're going to get that fast charge from those four ports that are USB-C, but you're not taking away USB-C ports, they're just adding two extra ones to do six total with USB-A on there. So this is the most ports on any of the chargers that we're looking at. Really high output, 200 combined watts, one port, the max that will get is 100 watts of output because they're all USB-C PD 3.0, 3.1 is what ups that above 100 watts. So only 100 watts on the USB-C ports.

    This is a great charger, I like it a lot. I like the horizontal nature of it, makes it a bit slimmer to fit into more places. Very cool charger from UGreen

     12. Hyper 245W

    If 200 watts ain't enough for your iPhone and accessories, then this might be the one you're lookin' for. Maxin' out our list with 245 watts of GAN power, this new Hyper charger's got four USB-C PD ports, with each capable of 100 watts of power. No need to worry about which port you're pluggin' into, as long as you've got enough bandwidth in the combined 245-watt max, you can get 100 watts from any of the four ports. This is massive, as there's no difference in which one you use.

    It's uniform across the board, fantastic job by Hyper. It's got a metal-lookin' space gray body that matches Apple's matte gray front and back, standard charger again. Swap it out if you need to, cable goes bad or if you're traveling and need a different one. Easy to do, sits flat perfectly on your desk or anywhere else, maximum power of 245 watts, and four 100-watt USB-C PD ports. This is the top of the list for those who need a ton of power for their gear. That rounds it up, these are the best GAN chargers to fast charge your new iPhone 14, other iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple watches, battery packs, or anything like that.
