The right charger for the right users at the right time.

There are many types of chargers in the market today and finding just the right one can be a daunting task at times. I prefer to stick with companies I know and trust because some third-party options out there can have untrustworthy manufacturing practices. So, I stay with companies that are tried and true. Xcellon is one of those companies. They make a lot of different types of charging devices and one of my favorites is their wall chargers. I recently reviewed the Xcellon PDG-120W Mighty Mini 20W GaN USB-C charger and today, I’m thrilled to check out its big brother the Mighty Mini 4-port 100W GaN USB Charger.

DETAILS

The Mighty Mini 4-port 100W GaN USB Charger is a 4-port USB wall charger that supports up to 100W of total power output. It uses GaN technology to maximize power output while keeping the size of the charger small, efficient, and safe. There are two USB-C and two USB-A ports included on this charger and it has foldable outlet prongs. This keeps it portable and durable. The charger supports USB Power Delivery 3.0 technology so it is compatible with fast charging. A single USB-C port has the ability to provide up to 100W of power to a single device. So if you have a 16-inch MacBook Pro that requires 96W of power, you can charge it using this power adapter, but you can’t have any other devices charging from it. You do, however, have the option to charge up to four devices simultaneously with the 100W of total power split between them. There is a list included below that outlines the possible power distribution for the different port combinations.

PORT POWER DISTRIBUTION

  • USB Type-C (Single): 100W
  • USB Type-A (Single): 18W
  • USB Type-C (Both): 65W + 30W
  • USB Type-A (Both): 12W + 12W
  • USB Type-C (Single) & USB Type-A (Single): 80W + 18W
  • USB Type-C (Both) & USB Type-A (Single): 45W + 30W + 18W
  • USB Type-C & USB Type-A (All Ports): 45W + 30W + 12W + 12W
