CES 2020: Aukey debuts tiny chargers for all your USB-C devices

For everything from a MacBook Pro and Dell XPS 13, to a Nintendo Switch, Aukey's new Omnia Series chargers has you covered.

When it comes to chargers, small doesn't have to mean weak. Accessory maker Aukey has unveiled a series of chargers at CES 2020 that not only deliver some of the world's fastest charging speeds, but are also smaller and lighter than equivalent output chargers by other manufacturers.

The line-up, called the Omnia Series, consists of five chargers, ranging from a 61W single port charger to a 100W dual-port charger, covers pretty much the entire range of USB devices, from high-powered devices such as the MacBook Pro, Dell XPS 13, and iPad Pro, to smaller devices such as the iPhone and Nintendo Switch.

Also: Can you really run the iPad Pro as a full desk setup -- mouse, monitor, SD/USB hub, and all? This guy did 

The small size of the chargers is made possible by the use of gallium nitride (hence they are referred to as using GaN technology), which are smaller, more efficient, and run cooler than their silicon counterparts. This has allowed Aukey to create a MacBook charger that is 66% smaller than Apple's own charger.

The five chargers, which have been slated to go on sale Q2 2020, are as follows (each will be offered in white and black):
