Hyppr's Super Sonic 100W Wall Charger

The Hyppr Sonic 100W Wall Charger is a new-age supersonic charger that works with nearly every smartphone, tablet, and laptop on the market.

It contains dual USB-C/PD ports that max out at 100W individually or 45W when used together, meaning you can charge 2 Macs simultaneously.

But wait wouldn't a powerful charger also be bulky?

Generally yes however this adapter is 35% lighter and 18% smaller than typical 96W chargers, so you should have no problem packing it into your suitcase, handbag, backpack or even larger pocket.

This is the most robust adapter I've ever tested, and I can't believe how compact the GaN technology makes it.

But what is GaN you might ask...well it stands for gallium nitride and it's the next generation of charging tech that's aiming to replace silicon.

With gallium nitride you get 93% energy conversion, enhanced heat dissipation, and more power that could fit into a smaller package; it's truly a revolutionary piece of technology.

I've tested a lot of GaN chargers as of late, but one things clear, there's never been a charger that's pushed this future tech that far.

Laptops

  • MacBook Pro 13" - MacBook Pro 15" - MacBook Pro 16" - MacBook Air 11.6" - MacBook Air 13.3" - MacBook 12"
  • HP Spectre X360 - HP Spectre X2 - HP Spectre Folio - HP EliteBook 830 G5
  • Dell XPS 13"

  • Huawei MateBook X Pro - MateBook X - MateBook 13
  • Google Pixelbook - Chromebook Pixel
  • Samsung Notebook 9
  • Razer Blade Stealth
  • Xiaomi Air - RedmiBook 14

Tablets/Other

  • iPad Pro 12.9"
  • iPad Pro 10.5"
  • iPad Pro 11"
  • Samsung Tab S6 - Samsung Tab S5/5e
  • Nintendo Switch
  • Galaxy Buds/Buds+

  • AirPods I+II/Pro

Smartphones

  • iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max - XS/XS Max - XR/X - 8/8 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S10/10e - S7-9/9 Plus - Note 8-10
  • Huawei Mate 30 Pro - P30 Pro - Mate 20X - Mate 20 Pro - Mate 10 - P10 - Mate 9
  • Google Pixel - Pixel 3/3XL - 2/2XL - Nexus 5X / 6P
  • Sony XZ3 Premium - XZ2 - XZP

This list can be found on the Amazon product page, and there are several devices that I didn't even list. Additionally upcoming iPhone/Note devices will also be compatible with the Hyppr Sonic adapter.

In fact any USB-C device or device using a USB-C to Lightning cable will work with this adapter though it may not necessarily receive the 100W output.

Note: You must use a USB-C charging cable with E-Marker to access 60W+ charging speeds. Your original Apple/Samsung charging cables may not tap into the faster speeds.

I'm hoping future devices will use the USB-C protocol to make this a lot easier for everyone, but it's okay if they don't as this supports QC as well.

Why Hyppr Sonic Is the Future of Charging

Hyppr Sonic's adapter is just the beginning of all-in-one hyper charging and it's a future that I've been waiting for a long time.

The next step would be to make devices capable of charging at 100W+ beyond just laptops & desktops. The day my phone could go from 0 to 100% in 5-10 minutes is the day the charging future will officially arrived.

The Sonic charger is a welcome addition in this transitional phase because it finally does something other devices don't; it propels technology forward. It does this by broadening usability, shrinking the footprint, and focusing its scope.

It remains to be seen what happens but I like the direction this company is going, and I pray it expands beyond it.

Hyppr Sonic 100W Wall Charger: Final Review

The Hyppr Sonic adapter is noteworthy for being a powerful, compact wall charger that distinguishes itself from its competitors.

I would give the Hyppr Sonic 100W Wall Charger 5 out of 5 stars.

I'm not sure I've ever given a product 5 stars before, but this gadget deserves it. I won't even fault it for not including a charging cable as there's just enough innovation and momentum to make me forgive minor cons.

So to recap here's a final breakdown of all the pros this device has:

  • 100W Output
  • Dual USB-C/PD Ports
  • Compact & Lightweight vs Competitors
  • Supports Simultaneous 45W + 45W Fast Charging
  • Broad Compatibility

That's a lot of positives for a singular gadget with perhaps the best pro being that the price is below $40 on Amazon.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone who owns a USB-C device, MacBook or iPhone if you have a USB-C to Lightning cable lying around. It'll be well worth it and the PD/QC protocols will ensure your device is quickly and full charged.

The Hyppr Sonic 100W Wall Charger is an ideal accessory that's innovative and forward-thinking, and you absolutely must own one in this crazy hyper-sonic world we're living in.
