Chargeasap’s Omega: the world’s first & smallest 100W & 200W GaN USB-C Charger smashes funding goal on Kickstarter

Game-changing 100W & 200W credit card sized charger that can quick charge 4 devices: laptops, smartphones & USB devices at the same time has raised over $631,734 in 14 days.

Sydney, 25th AUGUST 2020: Sydney based consumer electronics brand, Chargeasap, known for its incredibly successful crowdfunding campaigns including Flash Graphene Powerbank, Infinity Magnetic cables and X-Connect cables is celebrating smashing its crowdfunding goal for its Omega GaN chargers on Kickstarter with over $631,734 raised of its $10,000 goal with 46 days still remaining.

Capable of charging four devices at the same time (200W), the rewards for Omega 100W start at $45/£36 and Omega 200W at $75/£60. Full RRP will be $99/£79 (100W) and $149/£118 (200W) with the device available in, black, white, navy & gold (200W only). The 60 day campaign will run until 10th October with shipping expected to start January 2020.

Chargeasap have partnered with Navitas Semiconductor Inc, the world’s first and only GaN Power IC company, founded in 2014 with a combined 200 years of team experience in materials, devices, applications, systems and marketing. The Omega chargers utilise the industry-leading Navitas GaNFast NV6127 Power IC which miniaturise silicon components found in traditional chargers. Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a semiconductor material that replaces traditional silicon-based power adapters allowing higher efficiency, less heat and the ability to handle a higher current. GaN IC’s are over 10 times smaller than traditional IC’s, a major advancement in the electronics field.

The Omega Charger is proud to be a pioneer in being the world's first 2nd generation GaN Charger solving issues found commonly in 1st generation GaN chargers including overheating and the lack of accurate intelligent power distribution. By not limiting the USB-C port when the USB-A port is used, it is easy to confuse the charger which is why many competitor brand users have experienced many issues with their charger not working to their expectations.

The Omega 200W and 100W chargers are the smallest chargers available on the market (66% smaller than traditional chargers) and the world’s first portable 200W charger to quick charge a laptop (MacBook Pro), a tablet (iPad Pro), smartphone (iPhone), and mobile device (AirPods, Watch) all at the same time.

With the number of electrical devices people currently use on the go rising, travel space is crucial as consumers demand smaller, more portable gadgets and ways of keeping them charged for the “working on the go” culture. The Omega 200W includes Chargeasap’s patent-pending 2-way foldable prongs, helping to cut down on clutter and cords which can be adjusted at a 90° or 180° angle, allowing users to fit the Omega charger into any tough to fit wall plug whether floor or wall. The Omega is so small, at just 88 x 55 x 42mm for 200W version and 60 x 55 x 26mm for the 100W version, it’s smaller than a deck of playing cards.

With 2 x 100W Dual USB-C Power Delivery 3.0, a single Omega 200W charger can power 2 laptops (16" MacBook Pro) simultaneously, and at full speed. This is a game changer in charger technology making it the first portable charger that can output 200W. The Omega Charger USB-A ports are compatible with a wide range of devices that support Quick Charge 3.0, AFC, VOOC, SCP, FCP almost all major fast charging protocols in the market from all major brands including Samsung, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus up to 22.5W.

By incorporating only industry leading components Chargeasap have ensured that Omega delivers superior performance in a pocket-sized charger. The dense circuit board is surrounded by high-density thin heat sinks to aid in heat dissipation and an industry-first graphene ribbon sheet that is strategically wrapped around the major charger components to further aid in cooling.  The charger is then wrapped in a minimalist fire-resistant polycarbonate enclosure to complete the efficient design.

The Omega supports 100V - 240V worldwide universal voltage and comes with 3 plug converters (AU/EU/UK) so that it can be used it in 200+ countries worldwide.

The Chargeasap Omega GaN charger is available now on Kickstarter with rewards starting at $45/£36 (100W) $75/£60 (200W). Full RRP will be $99/£79 (100W) and $149/£118 (200W)
