Palo Alto, California, June 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Zendure, based in Palo Alto, California, has received more than $100,000 USD on the fifth day of crowdfunding for Passport GO, their new GaN-powered travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse. Zendure’s Kickstarter campaign has brought 2,500 backers so far.

Based on the Award-Winning Original

The original Zendure Passport, released in 2017, featured a compact, all-in-one design, self-resetting fuse, and four USB ports. Passport received a 2017 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. Passport's initial crowdfunding campaigns raised $330,000 USD from over 8,000 backers. Passport GO with GaN is a significant upgrade from the original, and it is capable of charging USB-C powered laptops, including MacBook Pro, as well as the latest iPhone and mobile phones from Samsung, HTC and Huawei.

GaN Technology, 30W USB-C PD

Passport GO features a USB-C PD (Power Delivery) port in addition to three USB-A ports. The PD specification is capable of delivering a lot of power. Zendure decided to use GaN components in order to boost the output power to 30W without having to make the product larger. Passport GO is the first all-in-one travel adapter to feature GaN technology.

Auto-Resetting Fuse

Like the original Passport, Passport GO has a built-in fuse that automatically resets itself if too much current is drawn. Traditional travel adapters have a single-use fuse that must be replaced with a new one in that situation. The product development team found this to be an unacceptable inconvenience when traveling, and were the first to bring the auto-resetting fuse into the travel adapter industry.

Now Available on Kickstarter

Zendure is taking pledges for Passport GO on Kickstarter through the month of June, 2019. Early backers can pre-order Passport GO for $34 USD, and Zendure offers worldwide shipping.
