The New GaN-Powered Wall Charger Delivers Breakthroughs in Power Efficiency, Charging Speeds, and Sustainability
OTTAWA, Canada – July 27, 2022 – GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN power semiconductors, announced today that HARMAN’s new InfinityLab InstantCharger 100W, 4 USB GaN charger leverages the high-performance advantages of GaN Systems’ transistors (refer to the 100W charger teardown report). With GaN Systems’ GS-065-011-1-L power transistor, the charger, made from 90% recycled plastics, harnesses the power of GaN to deliver the ultimate lightweight power adapter for consumers on the go.
The GaN-powered InstantCharger 100W 4 USB charger, which features two USB-A ports plus two USB-C ports, safely charges up to four devices simultaneously—phones, tablets, laptops, speakers, headphones, gaming consoles, drones, cameras, power banks, and more. Power Delivery 3.0 ensures fast charging for devices. The charger is smart enough to know how to allocate power, depending on which devices are plugged in. To date, Harman’s InstantCharger consumer reviews have rated the charger as 5.0, with comments such as: “Portable Powerhouse for On-the-Go Trips”, “Versatile, Powerful and Compact Charger”, and “Leaves Other Chargers in the Dust.”
“HARMAN’s GaN-powered charger addresses the needs of today’s consumer while putting sustainability front and center,” said Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems. “The ability for GaN-based chargers to power multiple devices means that consumers need fewer chargers and can keep them longer. This has significant sustainability implications when considering the more than 30,000 tons of landfills generated by discarded cell phone and laptop chargers each year. HARMAN and GaN Systems will continue to innovate to be at the forefront of consumers’ changing needs.”
HARMAN InfinityLab is a leading digital accessories brand with products including power banks, chargers, data cables, and speakers. HARMAN, a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, is relied upon by leading brands, audiophiles, musicians, and music lovers worldwide, including AKG, Bang & Olufsen, Crown, HARMAN Kardon, Infinity, JBL, Lexicon, Mark Levinson, and Revel.
