According to Caifa News, in addition to Xiaomi, Huawei, Samsung, Oppo, and Apple all have deep plans for GaN technology. Xiaomi, a supplier of Xiaomi GaN solutions, said that “this year, several manufacturers will release GaN power adapters”. The Xiaomi GaN charger uses a gallium nitride (GaN) technology. It comes with a USB Type-C interface that supports up to 65W fast-charge. It can deliver a full charge of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro in 45 minutes.
Xiaomi’s GaN charger uses Nanomicro’s NV6115 and NV6117 GaNFast power ICs with a volume of 56.3 x 30.8 x 30.8mm (53 cc). Thanks to the new semiconductor material GaN (gallium nitride), the size of this charger is about 48% smaller than that of the Xiaomi notebook’s standard adapter. In addition, Xiaomi’s GaN charger Type-C 65W’s USB-C interface supports intelligent adjustment of output current in multiple gears. It can charge up to 65W for high-power devices such as the new MacBook Pro and Xiaomi notebooks.
