If you are obsessed with power adapter organization like I am, then you will be please to know chargers for your devices have gotten even smaller. Anker, the maker of cables, chargers, sound bars, security camera and more, have recently revealed its second-generation gallium nitride (GaN) chargers, aptly called Nano II.

The Anker GaN Nano II line up includes a 30W, a 45W and a 65W charger. The latter is capable of full-speed charging for the 13-inch MacBook Pro and fast charging for other laptops while at 58% smaller (with the foldable plug folded in) than the brand’s original 61W charger.

Now, that is a charger I have been waiting for. I am using a cable organizer box and big power brick gets in the way of the cover, and so, the Anker GaN Nano II 65W charger may just be the answer I have been looking for.

Anyhoo, as for the 45W model, it is also a foldable plug that is 34% smaller over the first-generation and capable of supporting more laptops, including the 2020 MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, select Dell XPS 13 models, Google Pixelbook and more.

Meanwhile, the 30W model is flaunting a 59% smaller size over the original while capable of topping up iPhones three times faster over the standard 5W charger. Additionally, it also supports Samsung Super Fast Charging, full-speed MacBook Air charging, and it can be used to charge a bunch of other devices, including 2018 or later iPads as well as Nintendo Switch.
