Baseus Launches World’s First 2C1A Multiport GaN Charger Based on GaNFast
Accessory maker Baseus unveiled a 2C1A (two USB-C ports and one USB-A port) multiport GaN charger – a world’s first, at a special event in Shenzhen, China, on August 18.
The 65W PD charger is base on GaNFast solution from Navitas which enables high wattage inside an ultra compact form factor. It also makes the first debut of GaNFast on a multiport charger (the RAVPower 45W Ultrathin and AUKEY 27W PA-Y19 are single port chargers based on GaNFast). GaN, or Gallium Nitride, which is a new type of semiconductor material that offers higher efficiency, higher thermal conductivity, higher temperature resistance, and other advantages than traditional silicon. When it comes to charging, GaN can greatly reduce the size and boost the efficiency of a charger.
The charger has foldable prongs that we all love.

Seems dishonest to market something as "PPS FULL QUICK CHARGE PROTOCOL" when it only does 3.3V-11V / 3A.
There are about 10 MILLION Samsung Note 10+ units being sold in the next year, ALL of them are 45W USB PD3.0 PPS compliant, yet only shipping with a 25W charger. There are millions of people looking for a 45W PPS compliant charger hoping to get the full 3.3-11V / 4.05A protocol for their note.
This charger will only support 33W in PPS mode.
Note 10+ users beware, there is still no 45W PPS compliant GaN charger for your Note 10+ as of 9/3/2019.
I can't even think how many of these units will be returned or purchased in error.
@SteveInSeattle： I think by “PPS FULL QUICK CHARGE PROTOCOL” they meant "Full quick charge protocol support including PPS". The event was aimed at the Chinese market, the wording in English could be hit-or-miss sometimes.
But I share the same view with you on PPS. Let's hope more high-wattage-PPS-capable chargers coming to the market.
IS it on sale yet? Trying to find link to online shopping to purchase but can't find.
@Kelly： It is available in China now (ships in Sept. 25). You can check it out (in Chinese) here (https://item.jd.com/56129989914.html).
@Floyd： Was there some hiccups on the initial batch. Seems the technology a bit experimental. Would be nice to see a review up when ready.
