More and more smartphone manufacturers are no longer putting chargers in the boxes with their gadgets. Apple became a pioneer in this matter, refusing to charge and headphones included with the iPhone, motivating this by concern for the environment. And then Samsung and Xiaomi followed the same steps. There is nothing left for us now, except to simply put up with it and buy the missing charging blocks on our own.
And here AliExpress comes to the rescue, where you can find high-quality and optimal price / quality power supplies from third-party manufacturers, which are not inferior to the original ones in terms of functionality, and somewhere even better, but at the same time they are much cheaper. We have compiled a selection of 5 such proven chargers that will be useful to everyone, because a good charge at home is never superfluous.

What are GaN chargers?
Recently, GaN technology has become widespread in the field of chargers. Its main feature is that it is based on gallium nitride and power adapters made using this technology are significantly smaller and at the same time much more powerful than their predecessors, which are based on silicon.
GaN chargers are less susceptible to heat, able to withstand noticeably higher temperatures, deliver solid power, and are also modest in size. Today it is the most modern development in the world of chargers, so all the accessories from our selection are made using it.
Also, all adapters support USB Power Delivery, Quick Charge and many other fast charging standards, so you can quickly charge gadgets of any brand with them. In addition, we note that the declared power in all charges is provided by the USB-C port and in order to provide real fast charging of Apple devices, which we talked about in detail here, you need a compatible USB-C to Lightning cable. We recommend paying attention to such a cable from Baseus and one from Ugreen.
All chargers have certificates confirming that they are protected from overheating and overvoltage, you should not worry about it.

Baseus 45W GaN Charger
Let’s focus on 45W GaN charging with two ports to choose from: USB-C and USB-A, as well as USB-C and USB-C. When ordering, you can choose the version of the power supply that you need.

In the variant with two USB-C connectors in shared mode, the total power is distributed as follows: 30W + 18W or 18W + 30W.
For its power, the adapter is very compact, convenient to take with you. This is important if you often work from home. If you need a decent accessory to charge your laptop and smartphone every day, then this 45W power supply will be the right choice.

The older brother of the previous power supply. The bestseller among battery chargers from Baseus.

If you use two USB-C ports at the same time, then the total power will already be 63 watts: one will have 45 watts, and the second 18, which is also enough to quickly charge the iPhone and some not too voracious laptop.
When ordering, you can choose the version in which the USB-C to USB-C cable is immediately included, this is convenient.

Ugreen GaN 65W PD Fast Charger
Charger from another popular Chinese company Ugreen. Charging from this brand has the same power of 65 W as the adapter from Baseus, but there are already 4 ports here.
Two USB-C ports with up to 65W for charging laptops, another USB-C with up to 18W for connecting smartphones, and USB-A with 22.5W, which is more than enough to charge another necessary accessory, such as headphones.
In our opinion, this is the best option both for one main charger for the home, and for trips and travels. We took one such power supply and it will be enough to charge the devices of all family members. Just remember to get the appropriate supply of cables.

Baseus GaN 120W Charger
The top GaN charger in terms of power output from Baseus is also in our selection. Significantly larger than previous chargers, the 3-port adapter (two USB-C and one USB-A) is capable of delivering a total power of a whopping 120W. The maximum power for each USB-C connector individually is up to 100W, and USB-A up to 30W. When using two USB-C at the same time, each will have up to 60 watts. If we connect 3 devices at once, we get the following distribution: 60 W + 30 W + 30 W.
Thus, from such a block you can charge together and at the same time very quickly, almost any gadgets, for example, a laptop, smartphone and tablet. Of the minuses, it can be noted that due to its elongated shape and rather solid dimensions, the adapter does not quite confidently hold in sockets without grounding, especially when you need to fix the charger sideways.
We can only recommend this accessory to those who know exactly how it will use such impressive device charging capabilities, for example, owners of a MacBook Pro 16 ″ or other powerful laptops that support USB-C charging.
