The HyperJuice 100W USB-C GaN Charger is finally officially available.

This compact charger was first announced late last year and made available on Kickstarter earlier this year when it raised an incredbile US$2,200,642.

It's roughly the footprint of a credit card and it's about 28.9mm thick. So perhaps it's more accurate to say it's about the size of a deck of cards.

As its name clearly suggests, it uses gallium nitride technology, which is much more efficient than silicon, allowing Hyper to miniaturise the design.

It can charge up to four devices simultaneously. (Image source: Hyper)

It delivers up to 100W, which is enough to let you power or charge a 15-inch MacBook Pro, an iPad Pro, an iPhone 11 Pro, and AirPods simultaneously.

It features two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports. The USB-C ports can deliver up to 100W while the USB-A ports can serve up to 18W.

It has a foldable wall plug, but unfortunately, that's compatible with US sockets only. EU/UK/AU pin converters will be provided separately. It supports 100 - 240V voltages so you'll be able to use it for travel.

The HyperJuice 100W GaN Charger is available now from the HyperShop at US$99.99 (~S$139.26).
