More than $ 455,000 has already been raised for its release in just a week.
Chargers are an integral part of smartphones, tablets, laptops, smartwatches, and other modern electronic assistants. When the transition to a universal USB connector allowed replacing several charges with one, small size and high power came to the fore. As the example of the Omega Charger, which recently started fundraising on the Kickstarter website, shows, people really want small but powerful chargers: planning to raise at least $ 10,000 in two months, the project authors have already raised more than $ 455,000 in just a week. …
The charger is offered in two versions, with a power of 100 and 200 W. The chargers use gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductor components to provide more power to the load with a small size and heat dissipation, which makes it possible to reduce the size of the charger. The 200W Omega Charger measures 88 x 55 x 42mm. The developers claim that this is the world’s smallest charger of such power. It weighs 220 g and can charge up to four consumers, for which there are two USB-A ports and two USB-C ports. The 100W Omega Charger is even smaller at 60 x 55 x 25mm and weighs 120g but has one less USB-A port.
The devices support USB-C Power Delivery 3.0, Quick Charge 3.0, and fast charging for Apple computers and mobile devices. The kit includes adapters that provide connection to electrical outlets in different countries.
The minimum deposit required to get the 100W Omega Charger is $ 45. The 200W Omega Charger costs $ 75. In both cases, the organizers promise to start shipping the devices in January 2021.
