Hi everyone, today we have a review of the Baseus GaN 100W Ultra Powerful Charger.
According to the data on the box, this thing can charge almost any modern gadget that can be connected via USB. But it costs about $50. The main feature of this charger is the GaN technology. And the whole side on the box is occupied by listing the supported charge voltages and currents.
And also on the package there is a qr code to check the originality, although I have no idea who will fake it).
I will briefly explain what this GaN is and why it is needed. The name itself means the name of the material on the basis of which the elements inside the device are made – Gallium Nitride.
The use of this material makes it possible to greatly reduce the physical dimensions of the charger and at the same time increase its efficiency, thereby reducing heating. So the near future belongs to this material.
So only the essentials are in the box:
- Impressive storage unit
- Reversible High Current USB Type-C Cable
- And of course, some different pieces of paper
This thing weighs a lot – 217 g, it feels like it’s not a dummy.
The case is made of high-quality plastic, you can buy a black or white version, but white is somehow closer to me. In the corner of the block there is a small blue indicator that glows quite nicely when connected to a 220 V network
The full name of this block is Baseus GaN 100W 2C2U, the last characters are such a new smart labeling of USB ports – 2 Type-C and 2 USB Type-A.

- Weight 217 grams
- Type-C 100W cable included
- Two 60W USB ports
- Two Type-C 100W ports
- GaN 2 Pro Technology
Thanks to this picture, we can immediately understand exactly how power can be distributed, depending on the connected ports.
The charger supports the following fast charging protocols: for Type-C ports, these are PD3.0, PD2.0, QC4+, PPS (translated as “Programmable Power Supply” – a charger with PPS, when voltage is negotiated, can sequentially request it from the source in steps of 20 mV, and can also request the maximum current from the source in steps of 50 mA).
For USB ports, support for QC2, QC3 is declared, the rest can be seen in the picture – SCP, FCP, AFC, APPLE2.4, PE+, BC1.2.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to fully load this block, because I do not have a laptop with a suitable charging port at hand. But I’ll try to load it with what I can. In my case, these are 2 huge power banks for 30,000 mAh and phones, all with fast charging, it’s a pity there is no second cable for the Type-C connector, but nothing.
As you can see, the stock remains very decent.
Heats up the whole thing is not so much, given the power consumption.
But for me, the most important parameter was quiet operation without a squeak, because at night in silence it can be very annoying. But here, fortunately, there is no noise or squeak.
From the nuances of use, 2 things should be noted:
- When charging is running and a new device is connected, for a short period of time (while the microprocessor inside selects the desired charging mode), already connected devices will be disconnected.
- And the second – on ordinary USB ports, after charging to 100% and then discharging to 99%, for example, a phone at night, it will be charged again, which is probably not very good. So it’s better to connect active devices to the Type-C connector for night charging.
Summing up, I must say that Baseus makes really high-quality products that make our life much more convenient. If you need to charge several devices at once with fast charging, then the Baseus GaN 100w is an excellent choice, although the price bites a little.
