Hyper has launched what it calls the first 65W and 100W GaN USB-A and USB-C HyperJuice chargers that can be stacked, allowing up to 16 chargers to run off a single wall outlet.

HyperJuice are 65W and 100W USB-A and USB-C Gallium Nitride chargers, with each having one USB-A port and two or three USB-C ports respectively. The USB-A port offers 18W under Quick Charge 3.0, while the USB-C uses Power Delivery 3.0 and can output up to 65W or 100W, depending on the model.

As GaN chargers, they are small and light, with the 65W model measuring 2.83 inches by 1.42 inches by 1.2 and weighing 0.23 pounds. The 100W model is 3.36 inches by 1.77 inches by 1.2 inches, and weighs 0.37 pounds.

A key feature of the chargers is that it includes a pass-through AC power outlet, allowing other electrical devices to connect to the same outlet through the charger. The pass-through facility is rated for up to 1,500W, which can handle many high-consumption appliances.

The pass-through is also where the stackable claim comes into play. Multiple HyperJuice chargers can be stacked on top of each other using the fold-out outlet prongs and the top outlet socket on the casing.

According to Hyper, this means up to 16 HyperJuice 100W chargers could be stacked together and use one wall outlet.

Previously raising nearly $700,000 from more than 12,000 backers, the HyperJuice chargers are now available for direct sale, priced at $69.99 for the 65W model and $99.99 for the 100W.
