Griffin Unveils Range of Ultra-Compact, Fast Charging USB-C Solutions Enhanced with Power Delivery and GaN Technology at CES 2020

IRVINE, CAJanuary 6, 2020 –  Griffin, an Incipio® Group brand and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics for over 25 years, today unveiled a range of USB-C wall chargers equipped with Power Delivery (PD) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) technologies to deliver maximum fast charging power in an ultra-compact design. Engineered to provide a faster and safer charging experience in a smaller-sized package, Griffin’s latest additions to the PowerBlock™ lineup includes three high-speed wall chargers powerful enough to charge most USB-C compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops.

“PD and GaN technologies deliver meaningful improvements in power adapter size, charging speed and safety,” said Brian Stech, CEO of Incipio® Group. “As a brand with nearly 28 years of experience delivering dependable and iconic solutions to better serve mobile users worldwide, we are thrilled to introduce a range of purpose-built charging solutions with industry-leading technology to further improve our customer’s everyday lives.”

Griffin’s most powerful and versatile PowerBlock™ offering yet, each USB-C PD wall charger is equipped with Power Delivery (PD) to charge compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops at speeds up to 70% faster than standard chargers. With the integration of Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology, Griffin PowerBlock™ USB-C PD wall chargers are engineered with more efficient internal components than traditional silicon chargers to provide high-capacity power solutions with safer charging temperatures at a fraction of the size of traditional wall chargers.
