VOLTME Revo 140 GaN Fast Charger – Unboxing
In the box is the VOLTME Revo 140 GaN Fast Charger, a Thank You card from the folks at VOLTME and a Welcome Guide.
The VOLTME Revo 140 GaN Fast Charger is an auto-switching 100-240V ~2A(Max), 50/60 Hz charger so it can be used worldwide with a simple plug converter.
The charger itself measures 1.3” x 2.9” x 3.1” (31.5mm x 73.5mm x 78.5mm) and weighs just 9.52 oz (270 g). While it definitely has some weight to it, you should have no trouble packing it in your backpack or purse and could even slip it into a jacket pocket without an issue.
We appreciate that the plug is neatly stored in the overall case and it easily pulls down when needed. This contributes to the easy storage and transport.

VOLTME Revo 140 GaN Fast Charger – Test Results
As we often say, there isn’t a lot to test for accessories like chargers. Either they work or they don’t. In our case, we were very satisfied with the performance of the VOLTME Revo 140 GaN Fast Charger.
We had no trouble charging our 2017 MacBook Pro and our iPhone 13 Mini at the same time.
We do appreciate that there is a symbol at the top of the charger that lights up when powered. All too often, when traveling, we have to guess if the outlet we are using is working. Granted, we’ll know as soon as we connect a device to the charger but having this indicator is a nice touch.
The Bottom Line
There is certainly no shortage of chargers in the marketplace. We tend to be extra careful when picking chargers and cables. While price is always a consideration, we want to be sure we are dealing with a company that makes a reliable product. What good is saving a few dollars on a charger if it destroys your equipment?
While we are not making a formal endorsement of VOLTME, we do like that they give an 18-month warranty on their products, and provide lifetime technical support.
They even put a QR code and hidden number on their packaging to ensure that you are getting an official VOLTME product.
Beyond that, you can check out their website at voltme.com and see that they have been in the charger business for a while with a wide array of products to choose from.
The VOLTME Revo 140 GaN Fast Charger was introduced at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show and was awarded the 2023 CES Innovation Award.
The VOLTME Revo 140 GaN Fast Charger is available now on Amazon.
