Announced at CES 2023, the charger has six USB-C PD ports - two USB-C Power Delivery 3.1 and four USB-C Power Delivery 3.0. The next-generation gallium nitride (GaN) technology is roughly three times as efficient as silicon-based chargers.

Swapping out silicon for GaN also allows Satechi to reduce the size of the charger without compromising power. As a result, it's an ideal charger for powering devices at home and while traveling.

The charger has advanced power distribution that automatically adjusts based on the number of ports used and devices connected. For example, it achieves 140W when one device is connected to either USB-C 3.1 ports and up to 200W total when additional ports are used.

    Awesome sounding charger. Satechi chargers do get hot, but I have never had trouble.
    this should be able to charge everything in a trip without trouble.

    I’m interested in people’s thoughts as I’d love a single, powerful, compact multiport charger that I can take anywhere. My concern is that Li-ion batteries prefer a slow charge, in order to keep the temperature down and extend battery life.
    It seems to me that these high powered chargers will force batteries to charge at the highest speed possible, which will surely degrade the batteries faster. I would love to see a charger that allows me to choose the charging rate, or maybe a choice in iOS to select a charging speed (because sometimes fast charging is super useful!). I guess this is also true for Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. 

    I currently use the lowest powered apple charging plug possible (the oldest usb-a iPhone charger I own) to charge my iPhone every night via MagSafe to encourage as slow a charge as possible in order to extend its life as much as possible.

    I believe all Apple battery powered devices have power management, no need for this.
