 "Zendure Passport GO is the most capable world travel adapter yet." - AppleInsider 

"This is the ultimate travel accessory for charging all of your gadgets and devices." - GeekyGadgets 

"Charge 5 devices all at once with Passport Go, the most advanced travel adapter." - DigitalTrends 

"Zendure’s Passport GO is a dependable universal travel adapter that spits 30W over Type-C." - Android Police 

Travel should be exciting. And it shouldn’t involve compromise. To get all your devices charged, you need at least three products: a USB charger for multiple devices, a travel adapter for power outlets, and a power adapter for your laptop. 

If that sounds like overkill, we agree. Introducing Passport GO, the ultimate worry-free powerhouse that packs a 4-port USB charger with 30W Power Delivery (PD), a travel adapter with auto-resetting fuse, and a power adapter into one sleek unit. This all-in-one adapter allows you to charge up to 5 devices together in over 200 countries and regions.

Two years ago, we set a new standard for convenience and style with our trailblazing travel adapter, Passport. It was the first travel adapter to feature an auto-resetting fuse. With four USB ports, a convenient all-in-one design, and standout aesthetics, Passport became an instant favorite, even earning a Good Design Award in 2017 from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. 

Now, we’re raising the bar again with the next generation in travel technology: Passport GO with GaN. We kept everything people loved about the original Passport and made significant upgrades for superior compatibility and performance, based on feedback from real users. 

In short, we’ve made it faster, more powerful, and compatible with the latest devices.

Major advancements are coming to the field of electronics thanks to GaN (Gallium Nitride), a semiconductor material with specific benefits over its predecessors in certain applications. In power converters, GaN semiconductors run at a higher efficiency, produce less heat, and tolerate higher current compared to traditional silicon-based approaches.  

GaN technology allows Passport GO to deliver 30W of power through its USB-C port. Achieving the same performance without GaN would require a more bulky form factor to accommodate larger components and excess heat dissipation. 

Marks: Full 30W Power Delivery output available one USB-C port output only.  

USB-C PD (Power Delivery) is rapidly becoming the new standard for powering and charging phones, laptops, and a host of other devices. Passport GO features a 30W USB-C PD port, allowing fast charging for your USB-C devices, including MacBook, iPad, iPhone, portable chargers, Nintendo Switch, cameras and more. 

Traveling comes with a unique set of demands, including the need to power and charge several devices in a limited amount of space. Smaller travel adapters can only accommodate two or three devices at a time. Passport GO has a USB-C port, three USB-A ports, and a multi-region AC output, charging up to five devices all at once. 

Passport was the first travel adapter to acknowledge a simple fact: People don’t like searching through an electronics store to find a replacement fuse while traveling. Or ever, frankly. While a traditional travel adapter features a single-use fuse that will need to be replaced in the event that too much current is drawn, Passport eschewed the rustic charm of having to fix your own electronics in favor of an auto-resetting fuse. User feedback suggests we were really onto something. Passport GO takes after its predecessor in this regard. If too much current is drawn, the circuit will temporarily stop the flow of electricity, resuming again after a few seconds. It’s one less thing to worry about when you’re far from home. 

Our research indicated that people find multi-part travel adapters frustrating. They can be difficult to use, and pieces can often be lost. Passport GO has no removable parts. Easy to pack, easy to unpack, and easy to use. Simply press and slide the buttons to select the appropriate connector with just one hand. 

Our priority is innovative functionality, but we will never compromise on design. Passport is co-designed with Y Studios, an award-winning design firm based in San Francisco that has won numerous Red Dot, iF, and Good Design awards in the past. We worked closely for nearly two years on this project. Thanks to its revolutionary innovation and beautiful industrial design, Passport won a Good Design Award in 2017 from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. It also earned many accolades from our customers. 

For Passport GO, we adopted this beautiful design and upgraded one USB-A port to USB-C for 30W Power Delivery. Also, this USB-C port is highlighted in blue to differentiate it from USB-A ports and compliment Passport’s “Press and Slide” buttons. 

A traditional travel adapter with wide-open slots can be easily explored by a curious toddler using any small object, and this poses a risk of shock. Passport GO’s universal AC output has a child-proof shield to make sure that the outlet is only used for plugs. We designed this proprietary baby-proof shield to reduce potential safety hazards. 

Zendure is well known for our durable products, and Passport GO comes with a 2-Year Warranty with exceptional customer service. If you have a problem or a question, contact us at zendure.com/support. We are always there to help. Plus, we also offer worldwide shipping to simplify everything.

 Zendure was founded in 2013 by Tom Haflinger and Bryan Liu. Zendure has a portfolio of innovative premium quality products, including A-Series, the world's first crush-proof external batteries; and Passport, the first travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse. Their newest travel adapter, Passport GO, uses GaN technology to deliver up to 30W via USB-C PD and features all-in-one design and a self-resetting fuse.

 Zendure has abundant experience in travel adapter products. Zendure Passport - The World's First Fail-Safe Global Travel Adapter, drew over $300,000 USD in crowdfunding and earned a Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design “Good Design” Award in recognition of its unique features and attractive design. Passport GO is based on this design.
