RAVPower has just announced the launch of the PD Pioneer 61W GaN Wall Charger, one of the world’s smallest 61W charger. Measuring only 1.9″ x 1.9″ x 1.2″, the RAVPower PD Pioneer is 50% smaller than a standard MacBook Pro charger, and can charge all USB-C compatible devices at unprecedented speeds – more than 2.5x faster than existing chargers on the market (based on lab measurements). Its advanced chip manages power for the necessary DC output depending on device requirements, from 5V/3A up to 20.3V/3A.
Until June 25, RAVPower is selling the PD Pioneer 61W GaN Wall Charger to U.S.-based customers for $43.99 introductory price, a 27% discount from the regular $59.99 RRP. The charger can be ordered directly from the RAVPower website at www.RAVPower.com.
The “Pioneer” model name refers to GaN (Gallium Nitride), the next generation technology in power chargers. Using GaN rather than silicon allows for chips that integrate power, control and protection functions into simpler circuitry, resulting in dramatically smaller size. GaN chips are also more efficient – they waste less energy as heat, making GaN chargers cooler and safer.
Founded in 2011, RAVPower’s focus is exclusively on power supply products including power banks, car chargers, wall chargers, wireless chargers and replacement batteries. The company has sold more than 30 million charging units worldwide to date. All RAVPower products are backed by a minimum 18-month warranty.
