AUKEY PA-B5 Omnia 100W charger review

Here’s my review of the AUKEY PA-B5 Omnia 100W charger.

AUKEY’s first 100W USB-C PD charger, the highest output the Power Delivery specification allows for. It also supports Quick Charge 3.0 and other fast charging standards from Samsung, Huawei, and Apple. So it’ll work as well for your phone as it does your 16-inch or later laptop.

Leverages GaN tech to reduce size and weight (allows for same heat generation in a smaller size). So this charger is probably smaller than your sub-100W laptop charger. Leave that one at home/work and use this one for travel.

It is overkill if you don’t have a 15-inch or larger laptop. Or other large, power hungry USB-C device. The USB-C PD standard and 100W upper limit does allow this one charger to support most USB-C devices. But there are better buys out there if you need much less power.
