Best Chargers for GPD Pocket Laptop

At this point in time when it comes to the tech devices that we use each day, there’s a commonality between most of them and that would be portability. The ability to take the tech with anywhere that we go is becoming more and more of a necessity as we have places to go or simply because we don’t always want to sit in our rooms on a desktop.

The GDP Pocket is a perfect example of tech becoming so portable that it’s basically able to fit into your pocket, with it being a laptop that has a length 7 inches, a width of 4 inches and a thickness of 0.8 inches. Now there are not small laptops on the market from large brands but there are none that comes in a small size such as this one.

What’s even better about this GDP laptop is that you can charge it through its USB-C port and this is great because it opens up quite a few doors with the ways that you’re able to charge this laptop. Most might think that using standard USB-A port is optimal for charging this laptop, well, you can but the charging speed will be very slow and the laptop might still discharge because it’s using more power than what’s being charged.

In this guide, we’re going to be covering the USB-C chargers that you’re able to use for the GPD Pocket laptop. Some of them will make use of standard USB-C charging of 5V/3.0A, while others use more powerful charging such as Power Delivery.

PowerAdd 3-Port USB-C Wall Charger with Quick Charge 3.0

The first thing to know when it comes to charging the GPD Pocket is that you should be using a USB-C port with at least a 5V/3.0A charging speed, otherwise the laptop will charge very slowly. This PowerAdd 3-port wall charger is the first charger that we’re recommending. It has two USB-A ports, with one featuring Quick Charge and the other one is a standard port that has a 5V/2.4A charging speed. The one other port on this wall charger is a USB-C port that has a 5V/3.0A charging speed.

So this is a great all-around wall charger, especially if you have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone and you can use the USB-C port to charge the GPD Pocket. The charger has a retractable AC adapter that makes portability with it easier.

Aukey 3-Port 60W USB-C Power Delivery Desktop Charging Station

The usage of a 3 Amp USB-C port is preferable but it’s really the base at what the charging for the GPD Pocket can expect, and it’s actually better to make use of a Power Delivery charger if you want to ensure that you’re charging it at its max speed. So the first Power Delivery charger that we’re recommending comes from Aukey.

Even though this charger makes use of three ports, it’s actually a desktop charging station that makes use of a power cord and not a built-in AC adapter. That said, it’s understandable with how powerful the USB-C Power Delivery port is.

So the USB-C Power Delivery port has a 60W charging speed that can be used to charge the GPD Pocket at its max charging speed. The other two ports on this charger are USB-A ports that both share a 5V/2.4A (12W) charging speed. The best part is that the max power output of this charger is 72W, so you can use the max power of the Power Delivery port and the two USB-A ports at the same time.

Anker 5-Port Premium Power 60W Power Delivery Desktop Charger

If the previous Aukey charger seemed like it had too few standard ports to charge with at the same time while you’re using the Power Delivery port, then this Anker charger has quite a few more ports and charging power when it comes to its USB-A ports.

So the charger makes use of five charging ports. The USB-C Power Delivery port has a 30W charging speed and this is the standard of power for most USB-C Power Delivery and it’s still a lot of power to charge with the GPD Pocket. The max output of this desktop charger is 60W, so the other 30W of charging power is dedicated between the four USB-A ports that each have a 5V/2.4A charging speed.

Satechi 60W USB-C Power Delivery Charging Station with Quick Charge

The final desktop charging that we want to recommend is Satechi’s desktop charger. So the Power Delivery charging is very powerful with it providing 60W of power, but the other great part is that this desktop charger also features Quick Charge with one of its USB-A ports. The other two USB-A ports have a 5V/2.4A charging speed. There are not too many Power Delivery chargers that feature Quick Charge and Power Delivery at the same time, so if you have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone this is a great option to get while you also charge your GPD Pocket.

Another thing that this Satechi charger makes use of that not many other chargers have, is a light sensor to dim its LED Power Light so it’s not a disturbance while you’re trying to sleep.

RAVPower 26800 30W Power Delivery Portable Charger

One of the best parts about laptops that make use of USB-C port for charging is that you can use a power bank to charge it while you’re on the move and it’s perfect for charging the GPD Pocket because of how small it is. The types of power banks that we’ve chosen to charge the GPD Pocket while you’re out and about feature high power capacities and this is important because the GPD Pocket has a 7,000mAh battery capacity.

For the first Power Delivery portable charger, this is RAVPower’s 26,800mAh power bank. There’s a lot of power to use with a 26,800mAh power capacity, so it can charge the GPD Pocket to full power about 3 times. This amount of power is also useful for charging smartphones that you also may want to charge with the power bank.

There are a total of three ports that you can use to charge from, there’s the USB-C Power Delivery port which has a 30W charging speed. The two USB-A ports each have a 5V/2.4A and they share a 3.4A Max output.

For recharging this power bank, you can either use the Micro-USB input which has a slow 5V/2.0A recharge rate, or you can use the USB-C Power Delivery port to recharge the power bank at Power Delivery speeds when you use a Power Delivery wall charger. That said, the power bank does not come with a Power Delivery wall charger so you have to purchase that separately. The charger does come with a  USB-C to USB-C charging cable, though.

Anker PowerCore+ 26800 Power Delivery Portable Charger

This Anker power bank is very similar to the previous RAVPower portable charger that we just mentioned, with it also featuring a 26,800mAh power capacity so you can expect the same amount of full power charges.

The charging side is also the same with there being a total of three output ports, one is a USB-C Power Delivery port with a 30W charging speed, and the other two ports are USB-A that each has a 5V/2.4A charging speed.

The only real difference is that this power bank only has a single input port which is the USB-C port and it actually comes with a 30W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger that can be used to recharge the power bank at its max charging speed. You can also use the wall charger to charge the GPD Pocket directly, too and knock out two birds with one stone.

One other difference is that this power bank is made of Aluminum and so it feels and looks a lot more premium.

One other Power Delivery car charger is this MaxBoost one that features not only Power Delivery but also Quick Charge. The Power Delivery port has a 45W charging speed which is a lot for a car charger but we’re not complaining. The USB-A port features Quick Charge to charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones at their max charging speed while you charge your GPD Pocket. The Quick Charge can also charge any Non-Quick Charge compatible smartphones at their max charging speed, too.
