Chargeasap launches G6: The world’s first 61W travel adapter with GaN
The only travel adapter in the market which can support charging a 13” Macbook Pro at full speed. All our G6 units support 61W PD 3.0 PPS from the main USB-C port.
9th June 2020, Sydney: Sydney based consumer electronics brand, Chargeasap, known for its incredibly successful crowdfunding campaigns including the Flash graphene powerbank and magnetic cable ranges Infinity and X-Connect, is pleased to announce its latest innovation, G6, a 61W travel adapter, is now on Indiegogo. The world’s first 61W travel adapter with the pledges starting at $39 for early bird or $49 thereafter (Full RRP $79). The 45 day campaign will run until 24th July with shipping expected to start September 2020.
The G6 travel adapter is able to charge up to 4 devices simultaneously with an USB-C 61W Power Delivery 3.0 (PPS) port, 2 USB A ports and AC output. It’s a power adapter and universal travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse all packed into a pocket-sized adapter. With super-fast charging, G6 is the first travel adapter in the world that supports 13" Macbook's 60W charging protocol requirements. G6 is designed with compatibility in mind so we have upgraded all our G6 units to support 61W PD 3.0 (PPS) from the main USB-C port. This means G6 can charge all USB-C laptops including brands such as Dell, HP, Asus, Lenovo, Acer, Sony and more. Competitors at most can only support 30W with many brands claiming 30 - 45W total but only 18W from the USB-C port which is barely enough to power the Macbook. It is also able to support Apple Fast Charge meaning it can charge an iPhone 0% - 50% in only 30 minutes.
Chargeasap is able to deliver 61W of power through incorporating a Pi Innovo GaN internal circuit (IC) which allows a USB-C PD 3.0 (PPS) port in a compact size. 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.
A key appeal of G6 is its ability to support charging for high powered devices as well as a variety of everyday gadget essentials making it extremely versatile. Most generic travel adapters on the market only support 6A which equates to 600W @ 100V or 1500W @ 250V depending where in the world you're using the adapter and aren't able to support high wattage devices such as irons, hair dryers and toasters. G6 solves this problem with a superior 8A fuse which equates to 800W @ 100V or 2,000W @ 250V.
G6 also features an innovative auto-resetting fuse that disconnects the power when there is a current overload and re-connects back a minute later. This means your devices will stay protected from any surges time and time again. The auto-resetting fuse is tested to withstand 15,000 resets, so users can be rest assured that they are getting a high quality and durable device. Chargeasap is so confident in G6 it offers a 3 year warranty, making it a totally risk-free purchase, triple the industry standard of 1 year.
To add additional convenience, Chargeasap has designed G6 to be easy to use with a simple 1-hand easy press of the side button that allows you to slide out the pin of your choice. G6 works in over 200 countries supporting all the major types of wall plugs used worldwide.
Weighing only 170g and available in Black or White, it is available on Indiegogo from 9th June. With prices beginning at $39, it is the ideal travel adapter for world travellers and jet setting executives. After the Indiegogo campaign concludes, the RRP will be $79.
