Zyron Powerpod and Deskpod review – the smallest GaN chargers

The Australian company started its journey after launching one of the smallest 66W GaN chargers in March 2021. A GaN charger, if you haven’t heard of it, is basically a modern charger that uses gallium nitride (GaN) technology to charge devices with less heat. and more efficient when charging.

This technology can charge many modern laptops and only requires a USB-C cable and a GaN charger, which is relatively much smaller than traditional laptop chargers that feel like a heavy brick.

Today we take a look at some great and compact GaN chargers from Zyron Tech Australia: the Powerpod and Deskpod.

Zyron Powerpod 100

The Zyron Powerpod 100 is a compact 100W USB-C PD charger. Weighing just 210 grams, it’s even lighter than the 16″ MacBook Pro charger, yet it can charge up to 4 devices simultaneously. Comes with AU plug adapter and collapsible fixed US pin. If you travel frequently to the UK, EU or Asian countries, matching travel plugs are also sold separately and will work well with the Powerpod.

And of course, smaller devices like your smartphones and tablets.

Zyron Powerpod 100 comes with 4 USB ports: 3x USB-C and 1x USB-A port:

  • 1x 100W USB-C PD3.0 output
  • 1x 100W USB-C PD3.0 output
  • 1x 20W USB-C PD3.0 output (for smaller devices such as smartphones and tablets).
  • 1x 18W USB-A Quick Charger QC3.0 output

To charge your modern laptop via USB-C, you can simply plug the included 100W USB-C cable into either the first or second slot (you can clearly see the labels on the charger, which is nice, so you don’t have to remember which is which).

The included cable is one meter long (which may or may not be long enough) with over-voltage and over-current protection.

Although you can charge 4 devices at the same time with the Powerpod, of course the unit needs to share all the power when you’re charging, so here’s how it works when charging more than one device on the Zyron Tech Powerpod 100W:

Basically, the 100W USB-C output will be reduced a bit because it needs to share power with another port, but you can basically do your own math when choosing which port to use to see if you’re happy with the output. Power supply. If you’re a big charge user, you might want to grab their Powerpod 140W instead.

I really like the compact design and simplicity of the Powerpod. The labels are clear and the plugs are interchangeable, making it the perfect GaN charger for use at home or overseas, as you can prepare which plug you need before you head out.

Zyron Deskpod

The Zyron Deskpod, as the name suggests, will be on your desk most of the time. It serves as a charging station and at the same time saves space on the table.

Compared to the Powerpod, the Deskpod can actually charge 2 laptops at 60W simultaneously via two USB-C ports. It offers up to 156W maximum output through a total of four USB ports (two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports):

  • 1x USB-C 100W
  • 1x USB-C 100W
  • 1x USB-A 18W
  • 1x USB-A 18W

You can check the power distribution on the product page on the Zyron Tech website to see what happens when you charge multiple devices through these ports at the same time.

Included in the package is a charging stand that can hold up to two small devices such as your smartphones and tablets. It is designed to be placed on a table, so you can just plug in your laptop and charge your phone or tablet at the same time if needed. The stand makes charging easy while saving space on your desk.

But even if you’re not using it to charge your devices, you can still use the stand itself to place your devices neatly on your desk.

Also included in the package is a 1 meter cable like the Powerpod.

Weighing in at 306 grams, I definitely feel the weight when I first take the Powerpod out of the box. It’s still a great device to take with you on the go, but you can also permanently place it on your desk for power, laptop use, and device charging when you need to.

It removes clutter from your desk and provides an excellent yet compact charging station within reach.
