Meizu’s Super mCharge 55W technology, presented at the 2017 MWC World Mobile Congress in Barcelona, never came into real use. Until the announcement of the Meizu 17 series, which supports charging up to 30W, the fastest wired charging of the company was mCharge 4.0 25W with Meizu PRO7 Plus.
On May 8, along with the presentation of Meizu 17 and Meizu 17 Pro, we saw the new Meizu charger with a power of 65W, based on gallium nitride (GaN). Gallium nitride is a semiconductor material with many advantages over silicon and allows chargers to be significantly more compact at the same power.
Meizu’s GaN charger has three ports – one USB-A and two USB-C, each of which can reach a maximum power of 65W when used alone. It is compatible with almost all fast boot protocols – QC3.0, FCP, PD3.0, SFC/AFC, PPS, PE2.0. Its dimensions are 35% smaller than those of Apple’s 61-watt charger, and its pins can be retracted when not in use.
