HYPER has taken to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website to launch its latest innovation the credit card sized HyperJuice 100W GaN USB-C charger, which is capable of charging for devices simultaneously. Earlybird pledges are available from $59 or roughly £46 and worldwide shipping is expected to take place early next year during January 2020. The campaign has already raised over $500,000 thanks to over 6,500 backers with still 27 days remaining.
The 100w charger It is equipped with four high-power charging ports capable of charging your tablet, smartphone, laptop and USB device and is 50% smaller than traditional charges say it’s creators. Ports include : 2 x USB-C (supporting Power Delivery 3.0) and 2 x USB-A (supporting Quick Charge 3.0) ports.
The HyperJuice can quick charge a laptop (MacBook Pro), a tablet (iPad Pro), smartphone (iPhone), and mobile device (AirPods, Watch) all at the same time.
Features of the HyperJuice 100W GaN USB-C charger include :
– Pocket-friendly. Takes up same space as a pack of poker cards.
– With 100W Dual USB-C Power Delivery, a single HyperJuice charger can power 2 laptops (two 15″ MacBook Pro) simultaneously.
– No need to mess with bulky power cables which can be bigger than the charge itself.

The development team responsible for creating the HyperJuice 100w charger now available via Kickstarter explain a little more about its inspiration and design.
“HYPER has spent almost a year perfecting the circuit design and firmware to fully utilize the Navitas GaNFast NV6117 Power IC to bring the HyperJuice charger to fruition. We want to make the smallest 100W charger ever so the circuit board and components are laid out in the most compact and space-efficient manner.
Only the industry’s most efficient components that can deliver the best performance in the smallest of space are used. The dense circuit board is then surrounded by high-density thin heat sinks to aid in heat dissipation. The entire package is then wrapped in a minimalist fire-resistant polycarbonate enclosure to complete the efficient design.
HyperJuice utilises the industry-leading Navitas GaNFast NV6117 Power IC to miniaturise components normally found in traditional chargers. The new Gallium Nitride semiconductor material allows for power devices that can operate at higher voltages and switching frequency which results in smaller and more efficient chargers.“
