There are so many devices that need to be loaded, but not all chargers are created equal, especially when it comes to speed. The CES 2019 presented some exciting announcements for wireless chargers, powerful fast chargers that use GaN (gallium nitride) to reduce their size and even car mounts. To better understand the ever-changing charger market, we've decided to round off the best new charging charge so you can figure out what your next charging configuration should look like.
The new wireless charger from Griffin
The Apple AirPower is not seen anywhere, so Griffin announced a charging dock that could fill the gap. Its PowerBlock Wireless Fast Charging Pad is a 7.5-watt Qi charger with a spot for both an iPhone and an Apple Watch, and will go on sale within the next two months at $ 79.99. A version only for iPhone has also been announced.
Griffin also debuted two other wireless chargers. The PowerBlack Wireless charging cradle can transform itself from a flat plate stand and the Reserve Wireless Charging Bank is a 5,000 mAh portable battery with a wireless charging point for the phone. The chargers will cost $ 39.99 and $ 34.99, respectively, when they launch in Q1 2019.
Anker GaN Quick Charger
Manufacturers of accessories such as Anker are starting to produce fast chargers containing gallium nitride (GaN), which allows smaller bricks and more efficient recharge. One of the first is the 30-watt Atom PD 1 charge brick that will be launched later this month for $ 29.99. It's not much bigger than a typical iPhone charger, but it can quickly charge a 13-inch iPad Pro, smartphone or MacBook Air.
A GaN charger can better withstand heat, consume less energy, and provide energy faster than traditional fast-charging bricks. Competition in the GaN loader space is already coming, so it's time for Anker to get its first option.
Portable Wireless Charging with Suction Cups
This is a Kickstarter, and I admit it's a bit odd but interesting. The Yoolox portable wireless charging package includes small suction cups so you can connect it to your smartphone. They have enough aspiration to prevent the phone from falling, with or without a leather case. For the price of $ 79, you get a 10,000 mAh battery with both USB-C and USB-A outputs.
Unfortunately, it only supports 5W wireless charging, which is below fast charging speeds. You can still dream of the ideal wireless suction cup charger.
iOttie motorized wireless charging car holder
One of the other strange but useful chargers for this year's show was iOttie's car holder, which motorized arms that automatically "hug" your phone when you put it down. It's called the Auto Sense Wireless Charging Car Mount. Supports 10W charging speed and costs $ 54.95 when it goes on sale by the end of the year
