Anker’s Nano II 100W USB-C GaN charger went on sale and sold out quickly

At CES 2022, Anker announced the addition of a Nano II USB-C charger lineup with this more powerful version of the sport with two USB-C ports capable of generating up to 100W, plus an old port and USB-A. Now the $ 79 Anker Nano II 100W (also known as the Charger Anker 736) is up for sale Amazon (via MacRumors), although it has already shown sales.

Nano II wind turbines use the company’s second-generation type of gallium nitride-based components to replace older silicone components to produce more electricity in a smaller, less heat-resistant package. According to Anker, the Nano II 100W is 34 percent smaller than Apple’s 96W charger, with the same power plus two additional ports that help reduce the number of products you will need to protect all your devices. Another plus is that its fast charging is compatible with many different devices, including USB Power Delivery 3.0 PPS, and fast support 3.0.

The warning in this storm is that its USB-C ports are capable of up to 100W of electricity – but that is only true when you connect one device to one. Many books and other devices require much less power to charge or even charge faster, but it is something to consider if you have a larger MacBook Pro. Using two USB-C ports at the same time cuts the maximum output up to 60W in the first position and 40W in the second – Anker has a diagram to break it down further.

Single port: USB-C 1 (100W Max) / USB-C 2 (100W Max) / USB-A (22.5W Max) Dual ports: USB-C 1 + USB-C 2 (60W Max + 40W Max) / USB-C 1 + USB-A (80W Max + 18W Max) / USB-C 2 + USB-A (60W Max + 22.5W Max) Triple port: USB-C 1 (45W Max), USB-C 2 (30W Max)), USB-A (18W Max)

Anker isn’t the only company using gallium nitride (GaN) smaller, more powerful capacitors – Apple’s first technology was the 140W power supply for the 16-inch MacBook Pro ships – but it has been ahead of the pack since introduced the first GaN discipline in 2018.

Interviewed Qarka EiC Nilay Patel on the Decoder In a podcast last fall, Anker manager Steven Yang explained why his company was so quick to introduce GaN and repeat its product-based products.

Gallium nitride is the key performance technology that came on the market about three years ago, but you are already talking about the third generation. Is gallium nitride a technology that you have to invest in engineering resources? Is there a supply chain or material pipeline? How do you manage that investment?

Anker was indeed the first to bring gallium nitride to the consumer charge. How we were able to do this was that we partnered with Chipset manufacturers to produce gallium nitride charging chip. We were almost their alpha customers. So when the first chip was made, there were a lot of hoops to jump into to make a product. That requires not only material knowledge, but also application knowledge, system structure knowledge, and knowledge about heat management. It is almost a systematic effort. We have gathered knowledge of this, and a couple of that along with gallium nitride chips and a manufacturer to build a product.

You will see this year’s GaN2 measuring 65-watt and 30-watt. We have been working on Electric Innovation for almost a year now. GaN2 is the new generation of chips we launched in the middle of this year. The 65-watt GaN2 was part of the race.

The reason we were able to do this is based on the new generation Generation GaN2. We were the only couple developing it for almost a year – you will not see similar products from other brands for at least three to six months because PI and Anker are working together, completely.

So Anker and PI had a special relationship to develop the next generation of GaN Chipset, and then that window would open in three to six months so that others could buy that Chipset.


Anker Tyler Mallery, head of U.S. media relations, confirmed this Qarka that the storm has really started and that Anker is waiting for more stuff to come. The 736 bookmarks are short enough to not even be listed on the Anker page yet, but if this is the downloader you have been waiting for, keep an eye on the Amazon page to see when it returns.
