Baseus GaN2 Pro charger test. Four ports and a full 100 watts of power at your fingertips

Baseus GaN2 Pro charger test.  Four ports and a full 100 watts of power at your fingertips

4 ports, 100 watts and the promise of the highest level of charging efficiency… at least when it comes to the products offered by the manufacturer itself. This, in short, is offered by the Baseus GaN2 Pro network charger we tested.

Baseus GaN2 Pro box and accessories

The first moments with Baseus GaN2 Pro can be described positively. The charger comes to us in a gray, tightly packed cardboard box that fits in the hand and from the very first moment suggests solid equipment inside, thanks to its weight. There, in turn, in addition to the charger itself, a warranty card, a user manual, a set of stickers and a very stiff 100-cm USB-C to USB-C cable in a rubber casing, which is able to meet the challenge of charging with 100 W.

Baseus GaN2 Pro materials and design

The charger itself weighs about 205 grams, but it fits in your hand, and its design allows you to connect it even to a power strip with thin plugs next to it. Its 92-mm-long top cover is home to four ports – two USB-A and party USB-C, and the body is complemented by an indicator LED on the corner. The aesthetics are additionally enhanced by polished edges, but the overall design of GaN2 Pro is not impressive. Here is a large charger in a plastic housing (apparently reinforced in terms of scratch resistance) with a proudly presented inscription, praising power and technology.

The manufacturer informs that its loader owes its uniqueness to the fact that the internal gear is based on semiconductors made of gallium nitride, which allowed to reduce the overall weight and dimensions without sacrificing performance. This one is impressive, because the total output power of GaN2 Pro is around 100W.

Baseus GaN2 Pro capabilities

Traditionally, though, don’t praise the day before sunset – not every port has so much to offer, and you’ll need a wire that can carry so many electrons. It must be emphasized here that only both USB-C ports can charge with 100W (20V / 5A) power, while USB-A ports offer a maximum power of 60W (20V / 3A).

Of course, only when we charge one device, because using both USB-C ports at once (they can charge with the following parameters: 5V / 3A, 9V / 3A, 12V / 3A, 15V / 3A, 20V / 5A) will allow for a maximum charging of 65 + 30W. The same with the use of USB-A (support for 5V / 3A, 9V / 3A, 12V / 3A, 20V / 3A parameters), although to a lesser extent, because only 15W in 5V / 3A mode. Using all ports at the same time limits the charging to 60 + 20 + 15W, so it’s not that bad. At least for the priority-treated device connected to one of the USB-C ports. Don’t worry – everything happens automatically, because the receiving devices “get along” with the charger as to the specificity of charging on a regular basis.

Finally, thanks to its capabilities, GaN2 Pro supports the following standards:

  • Power Delivery 3.0
  • Huawei SuperCharge 22.5W
  • Samsung Adaptive Fast Charging
  • Quick Charge 4.0 i 3.0

What about the temperature? Here Baseus took care of it thanks to nanotechnology, accelerating heat emission from the charger and thus preventing overheating of internal components. In practice, this manifests itself in the fact that even under maximum load, the GaN2 Pro housing does not get unpleasantly hot. There is warmth from her (that’s obvious), but not to that unsettling degree. Take it easy – the materials used are refractory, and the charger complies with seven levels of protection, because against overcharging, discharging, overvoltage, overheating, overcurrent, short circuit and electromagnetic field.

Baseus GaN2 Pro test – summary

In the Baseus offer, the GaN2 Pro charger is at the time of writing this test the most expensive charger, for which we have to pay PLN 259 in the official store. Is that a lot? It really depends on you, because if you use only one charging connector and you need such a charger, you will probably overpay here. However, if you see the potential to use it, why not? In our test, this model clearly deserved the recommendation:
