The Chargeasap Omega 200W GaN charger was promoted as the World’s Smallest 200W adapter, and it has received a total of US$3.39million from 33,910 backers from Indiegogo and Kickstarter. After reviewing with the other brands, we find that it might not be the smallest in size, but it is the lightest by at least 29% compared to the next heaviest 200W charger. The weight is about the same as some of the larger smartphones in the market now.

When using only the two USB-C ports, the maximum power output for each port is 100W concurrent.  This is the only configuration when the charger delivers the full 200W output in total.

If you add another USB-A, then the second USB-C port drops to 65W, while the USB-A 1 delivers up to 22.5W. The total power output drops to 187.5W.

Lastly, when using all four USB-C ports concurrently, only the first USB-C port is 100W, while the second USB-C port drops to 65W. The remaining USB-A ports in this mode have 12W output each. The total power output drops to 189W.

Volta Giga 200W GaN Charger

Weight310 grams
Ports3 x USB-C and 1 x USB-A
Total Max. Wattage200W

The Volta Giga 200W GaN Charger is another strong contender based on the specifications with sizes that are quite close to the Chargeasap Omega. The biggest disadvantage is the weight of 310 grams which is almost 29% heavier than the Omega.

Even though the Volta Giga 200W GaN’s design has 3 USB-C ports, the third USB-C power output has a significantly lower power output when compared to the first two USB-C ports. In fact, it is just slightly better than the USB-A for the Chargeasap. The only advantage is perhaps that you can use a new USB-C to USB-C cable which will be replacing the old USB-A cables.

Like the Chargeasap Omega, when using only the two USB-C ports, each port can deliver up to 100W concurrently. This is the only configuration when the charger delivers the full 200W output.

Thundergo 200W GaN Charger

 

DescriptionTechnical Specifications
Size83 x 63 x 35mm (183cm3)
Weight320 grams
Ports3 x USB-C and 1 x USB-A
Total Max. Wattage200W

The Thundergo 200W GaN Charger is the smallest in our review at only 183cm3 in size, which is about 9% smaller than the Chargeasap Omega 200W GaN Charger. However, it is also the heaviest of the lot at 320 grams. The design of the port configuration is similar to the Volta Giga with 3 x USB-C and 1 x USB-A. The power output is quite similar for the above-mentioned configurations, but there are still subtle differences that are negligible.

Like the other 200W charges, each USB-C port can deliver up to 100W concurrently when only the first two ports are in use. This is the only configuration when the charger delivers the full 200W output.
