Xiaomi's 100 W charger - Anker, Your Move!

Anker just released the Atom charger with GaN technology which supports 30W. When will we see a 100W charger to compete?

Xiaomi’s 100W charger fills a 4,000mAh battery in 17 minutes - The Verge Article

The people want it, Anker! Your move!


Yes anker. Go for it… if you don’t, you will be behind, many other brands will Begin to release 100w chargers…


That was my first thought.

Can we see a 100W, 5,000mah GaN Fusion?


100W GaN based charger may take sometime, but Anker already has Launched PowerPort Atom PD 4 100W USB-C Charger

You’re right, but isn’t that spread over the two USB-C and two USB-A ports?

yes, below are details from @joshuad11 on Anker Forum

Yeah I saw all that, I’m trying to make sense of what that all means.

So assuming the Max Output on a USB C is 9v at 3A, then you get 27W max out of one port? So still ways to go…

Good call! Well then, case closed!

Although I think it would be beneficial to create a smaller footprint and not the PowerPort design which can be a bit clunky and not as travel friendly.

Your mistaking a proprietary charger for a regular charger. Xiaomi’s charger while great, will most likely only power and work to charge their phones and not other devices. This most likely goes against the USB-C standard in order to achieve this high rate of charge, we would have to wait for it’s release and spec sheet to know more about it. But personally I doubt it will be beneficial for other device uses.

While yes we want and should see higher powered chargers, this one most likely isn’t what we are looking for


From the demo video it looks like the phone is accepting around 72 W power on average.
If it’s a single li-ion battery of 4000 mAh capacity it will be 3.8V x 4 Ah = 15.2 Wh capacity
In order to charge this in 17 min (or 0.2833 hr) with 72 W power the battery must be taking in 53.65 Watt. This means the current input is 53.65W/4.35V = 12.33 Amps (that’s IMPOSSIBLE)

Most likely they have splitted the battery in 4cells so each cell is at 4.35V (total close to 18V) with each battery cell getting about 1 A (total of 3.5-4A) charging current. That’s LOGICAL and safe to do…


I’m sure Anker can compete with that!

I am busy this week traveling (with a lot of Anker tech) but
