Sun Herald: “They won’t weigh you down…”

Pocked-sized Omega Charger is the world’s first 200W Gallium Nitride (GaN) charger and also the world’s smallest 200W charger that is up to 66% smaller than traditional chargers.

Omega Charger also comes in a 100W version which is the world’s smallest 100W GaN charger similar to a box of Eclipse mints and even smaller than a credit card. With a host of improvements over 1st generation GaN Chargers, 100W Omega is truly a standout in being the world’s first 2nd generation charger with graphene membrane for heat dissipation.

With 200W of power, there is always more than enough power to share around with 4 ports: 2 x USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 and 2 x USB-A (supporting QC3.0, AFC, VOOC, SCP & FCP).

The portability and high power means you will never need another charger for USB charging needs.

A world’s first 200W portable charger provides the ability to quick charge a laptop (16″ MacBook Pro), a tablet (iPad Pro), smartphone (iPhone), and mobile device (AirPods, Watch) all at the same time.

With 2 x 100W USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 PPS ports, a single 200W Omega charger can power 2 laptops (16″ MacBook Pro) simultaneously, and at full speed. This is a gamechanger in charger technology, making it the first portable charger in the world to output 200W.

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.

At only 220g (0.49lb), you can easily fit 200W Omega Charger into any pocket and bring it with you wherever you go.

The 100W Omega is even smaller and lighter at 120g (0.26lb) giving you unrivalled portability

200W Omega charger in the world’s first charger to features our patent-pending 2-way foldable prongs which can be adjusted at a 90° or 180° angle allowing you to fit Omega charger into any tough to fit wall plug whether its a floor or wall plug.

The 100W Omega is so small its smaller than a credit card and comparable to a pack of Eclipse mints. The perfect portable charger for work, home and travel.

Both 200W and 100W Omega Charger supports 100V – 240V worldwide universal voltage and comes included with 3 plug converters (AU/EU/UK) so that you can use it in 200+ countries worldwide. Please note the adapters are not interchangeable between the 200W and 100W models.

200W Design

Chargeasap has spent over 8 months perfect the internal circuitry and firmware, taking care to upgrade user experience and ensure the final product maximised the use of the Navitas GaNFast NV6127 power ICs. The NV6127 is the latest GaN power chip from Navitas and has superior heat dissipation, and is the powertrain in a high-frequency quasi-resonant (HFQR) flyback topology – a high-efficiency, cost-optimized GaN structure.

In order to make the smallest 100W and 200W charger ever, the circuit board and components are laid out in a very compact and space-efficient manner. By incorporating only industry-leading components we can deliver superior performance in a pocket-sized charger. The dense circuit board is then surrounded by high-density, thin heat sinks to aid in heat dissipation. An industry-first graphene membrane is strategically wrapped around major charger components to further aid in cooling. The charger is then wrapped in a minimalist fire-resistant polycarbonate (PC) and Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) enclosure to complete the design

Getting to this final form factor was no easy task; we worked with 6 different factories over a year leading to a lot of funds being used in mold fees that weren’t eventualized, and all but one failing to create the product in the perfect portable size we were after.

100W Design

Earlier Samples of 200W & 100W

Omega is a big leap for the world of GaN chargers. With improved features including the latest Navitas GaN power IC, graphene membrane and accurate power distribution, the Omega Chargers are proud to be a pioneer in being the world’s first second generation GaN chargers solving issues found commonly in first generation GaN chargers.

Kickstarter backers are early adopters, and assisted Chargeasap to optimize and upgrade Omega performance above earlier designs. A survey of 4,538 respondents (previous Chargeasap backers) in July 2020 was used to highlight any earlier issues and provide a laser-focus for our design team to optimize:

  • Cool, full-power operation
  • On-demand, stable, accurate power-sharing between outputs
  • High quality and reliability

Thank you to each and every respondent as your feedback has allowed us to create a charger that fixed the painpoints of limited chargers available today.

The 100W Omega utilizes the industry-leading Navitas GaNFast NV6127 Power IC. Gallium nitride (GaN) is a new semiconductor material that switches 100x faster and has much lower resistance and capacitance than old, slow silicon chips. For fast-charging, this means more power is delivered to the battery, charging it faster, instead of burning up that energy as heat which warms the charger in your hand. Faster (higher-frequency) switching means the energy-storing passive components in a charger (transformer, EMI filters, capacitors, etc.) can shrink dramatically as they store much less energy in each switching cycle.

To optimize GaN for high speed, high efficiency and high reliability, Navitas created GaNFast power ICs. Here, the GaN power switch (FET) is carefully, monolithically integrated with GaN logic and GaN analog circuits on a single GaN chip to form a true GaN power IC. These ‘digital-in power-out’ building blocks – known as GaNFast™ power ICs – deliver robust, high-efficiency performance up to 2 MHz.

The 200W Omega is the first portable charger in the world to feature not one but two GaNFast NV6127s – designed by Navitas in Los Angeles, California – enabling the 200W power to be reached with minimal heat and maximum efficiency.

One of the big advantages of GaN technology is its superior AC-DC efficiency – over 92%. Omega loses 15% less energy than Apple and Anker, resulting in cool case temperatures, even at full power – anywhere in the world (measured at 110V and 220V inputs).

Competitor product: Hyperjuice Laboratory Testing

Calculation: Input power = 106.4W, output power = 19.576V x 5A = 97.88W, so efficiency is 97.88/106.4 = 92%.

Tested in our lab under the same conditions, the 100W Hyperjuice reaches only 88% at 110V, which is a 33% increase in energy loss – a much higher case temperature.

Official GaNFast Partner

Chargeasap is proud to partner with Navitas Semiconductor and utilize the high-speed, high-efficiency performance of GaNFast power ICs. GaNFast technology has been adopted by industry leaders including Lenovo, Xiaomi and OPPO.

Navitas is the world’s first and only GaN Power IC company, founded in 2014. Navitas has a strong and growing team of power semiconductor industry experts with a combined 300 years of experience in materials, devices, applications, systems and marketing, plus a proven record of innovation. GaN power ICs monolithically-integrate GaN power, GaN analog and GaN logic circuits to enable faster charging, higher power density and greater energy savings for mobile, consumer, enterprise, eMobility and new energy markets. Over 100 Navitas patents are issued or pending.

One of Omega’s pioneering technologies is being the first charger to include a graphene membrane which is like a ribbon cooling sheet that’s been carefully interlaced within the internal components to dissipate heat.

This feature is combined with a high density nano heat sink commonly found in 1st generation GaN chargers which together ensure true heat dissipation particularly when used with high wattage devices.

The industry standard for charger maximum temperature is 130ºC internally and 65ºC externally. Both 100W Omega and 200W Omega will remain below 110ºC internally and 60ºC externally due to superior components include a more advanced GaN IC and the inclusion of a graphene membrane ribbon sheet.

Competitor product, world’s first 100W GaN charger can be seen here reaching high 76.9°C temperature internally

We’ve completed extensive factory testing on GaN competitors to ensure if they are coming clean with their claims. The world’s first 100W multi-output GaN charger can be seen here reaching 76.9°C internally, which suggests an external temperature in excess of 130°C. Note the test was only performed on 1 unit and was the competitor’s brand earlier production, it’s possible future production runs could have improvements that fixed this issue.

Competitor product, world’s first 100W GaN charger can be seen here reaching high 76.9°C temperature internally

One of the flaws of 1st Generation multi-ouput GaN chargers is their lack of accurate intelligent power distribution. By not limiting the USB-C port when the USB-A port is used, its 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 solution is to specify the limit for each port and ensure they are independent, so there is no preference for power. Furthermore the true solution is to increase the output of the charger and hence the 200W GaN Charger will not fail to output 100W power for each of the 2 USB-C ports when multiple devices are connected.

200W Power Distribution

  • C1 + C2 = 100W + 100W
  • C1 + A1 or C2 + A2 = 65W + 22.5W
  • C1 + A2 or C2 + A1 = 100W + 22.5W
  • A1 + A2 = 22.5W + 22.5W
  • C1 + C2 + A1 or C1 + C2 + A2 = 100W + 65W + 22.5W
  • When all 4 ports used simultaneously: 65W + 65W + 22.5W + 22.5W

100W Power Distribution

  • C1 or C2 = 100W
  • C1 + C2 = 65W + 30W
  • C1 + A1 = 65W + 22.5W
  • C2 + A1 = 12W + 12W
  • A1 = 22.5W
  • When all 3 ports used simultaneously: 65W + 12W + 12W

Fast Recalibration

One of the shortfalls of current GaN chargers is a long recalibration time. This means when there is a device plugged into 1 USB-C port and you plug in another port it will not work for a few seconds. We’ve tested Omega to have a recalibration time is only 0.5sec vs Hyperjuice which from our testing is 3sec.
