Design and features
The Baseus 65W PD GaN3 Fast Wall Charger Block is a compact charger that features GaN charging technology. Gallium Nitride (GaN) chargers don’t require as many components as silicon chargers, making them smaller and more efficient.
The Type-C port supplies up to 65W of power, which can charge a Macbook Pro 13″ in less than 2 hours. The Baseus charger is also compatible with Apple 20W PD and Samsung AFC 45W fast charging, charging iPhone 13 to 50% in half an hour, three times faster than the original 5W charger.
The Baseus BPS intelligent power distribution technology will provide the best charge for each device when multiple devices are plugged in at the same time. You can charge up to four devices simultaneously.

I like the angled wall plug, but you will need to consider this if you have a particular place that you wish to plug this into; they can sometimes interfere with other plugs. Also, the main cord for this charger does not unplug, so that should be something to consider if you’re going to be putting it in a laptop bag pocket.
I 3D Printed a remote/charger mount for my living room end table, and it makes plugging into the Baseus charger a breeze. The GaN charging technology ensures that there won’t be heat dissipation issues.
What I like
- Efficient Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology
- AC input cable has a velcro strap
What I’d change
- Would be nice to have a detachable power cord
The Baseus 65W PD GaN3 Fast Wall Charger Block simply works as advertised, charges well, and stores nicely.
