Owning a laptop at this point is in most ways better than owning a desktop computer because most laptops are insanely powerful. More precisely, we’re talking about the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 laptop with top-tier specs that make the laptop perfect for students, work, and general media usage; we will say that the computer’s specs reflect the price. If you’re planning on getting the HP Elite Dragonfly or already own one, you should know that its USB-C charging is one of the most convenient features.
Charging the HP Elite Dragonfly via USB-C or any other USB-C laptop is an incredible experience because you can own many types of chargers. In this guide, we’re recommending different chargers for the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 that you can use to charge it in various situations. Included in the box with the HP laptop is a 65W USB-C charging brick, so it’s recommended that you use a 65W Power Delivery charger. However, you can use a slower PD charger, but your laptop will charge slower.
SAIL01 65W GaN USB-C Power Delivery Wall Charger
One of the most compact PD chargers that you can get for your HP Elite Dragonfly is this SAIL01 charger. This charger has a length and width of 2 inches and has a thickness of only 1 inch. Along with such a small size, this charger has a 65W max output shared between two USB-C PD ports.
USB-C 1 on this charger has an 18W charging speed at all times, no matter if you’re charging one or two devices simultaneously. USB-C 2 is the more powerful port because it can output 65W if you’re charging only one device, so you can charge your HP Elite laptop at its max speed when only charging it from this SAIL01 charger. However, if you’re charging two devices, the USB-C 2 port will drop down to a 45W output; this still lets you charge your HP laptop at a tad slower speed.
Even when charging two devices, you can still fast charge a smartphone or tablet via USB-C 1 and charge your HP Elite Dragonfly from USB-C 2. Included in the box with the SAIL01 charger is a 3-foot USB-C to USB-C charging cable that lets you start charging right out of the box.

Baseus 100W 1-Port USB-C Power Delivery Wall Charger
If you don’t mind being limited to just a single port but want tons of Power Delivery charging power, we recommend this Baseus 100W wall charger. The charger only has a single USB-C port, so yes, it’s limited because you can only charge a single device at a time. Since the port has a 100W output, you can charge your HP Elite Dragonfly at its max charging speed. A 100W charge rate isn’t just helpful for charging your HP laptop, though; getting this Baseus wall charger can futureproof your charging needs for other USB-C devices that you have or will have, such as other laptops, phones, or tablets.
Considering this charger has a 100W output, it’s surprisingly tiny with just a length of 2.6 inches, and that’s because this charger uses Gallium Nitride (GaN). This charger also comes with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable.
The single USB-C port also features PPS super-fast charging that can charge compatible new Samsung phones at faster speeds.

|Size||4.5 x 3.7 x 1.1 inches|
Hyphen 100W 4-Port GaN Power Delivery Wall Charger
It is likely one of the best all-in-one types of Power Delivery charger, but it does come at a higher price but for good reasons. This Hyphen-X wall charger has four charging ports, two of them are USB-C Power Delivery ports, and two of them are USB-A ports. This charger has a 100W max output.
If you’re only charging a single device via the USB-C 1 or USB-C 2 port, you can use the full 100W of Power Delivery. Charging from both the USB-C 1 and USB-C 2 port simultaneously gives you a 65W and 30W split of power, letting you charge your HP Elite Dragonfly at max speed via USB-C 1 and potentially charging another laptop via USB-C 2 if it can charge at 30W or you can fast charge a tablet or phone from the second USB-C port.
Charging four devices simultaneously further splits the charging power on this Hyphen-X wall charger, with USB-C 1 outputting 45W, USB-C 2 30W, and the two USB-A ports will output 7.5W. So charging four devices still lets you charge your HP laptop.
If you’re not charging four devices, the USB-A ports can output 18W, which can fast charge Quick Charge compatible Android phones.

Baseus Blade 20,000mAh 100W Power Delivery Power Bank
With the universal charging that USB-C brings, the ease of charging that you’re able to get is also a huge plus because there is a wide variety of power banks that can be used to charge laptops now. In the past, with DC chargeable laptops, you would have to lug around your charging brick and hope you could find a nearby outlet.
This Baseus Blade power bank has a 20,000mAh power capacity which is an alright power capacity for charging the HP Elite Dragon Fly to full power at least once and still having leftover power to use later.
The charging from this power bank is more incredible than the power capacity with its usage of two USB-C Power Delivery ports and two USB-A ports. The max output of this power bank is 100W, and you can use the total 100W if you’re solely charging from the USB-C 1 or USB-C 2 port.
When it comes to charging multiple devices charging power is split, and in our tests of the Blade, the USB-C 2 port is the one that you’re going to want to charge your HP Elite Dragonfly G3 with. You can use the USB-C 2 port PPS super fast charging for Samsung Galaxy phones as we did with the Galaxy S20; we also fast charged an LG G7 via one of the USB-A Quick Charge ports while still charging a laptop.
Recharging the power bank is also fast with its 65W max input.
The reason that this is called Baseus Blade is because of its incredibly slim form factor. The power bank has a digital screen that shows the remaining power capacity, remaining time of the capacity, and output and input charging status.

Excitrus NitroCharge 120 20,800 100W Power Delivery Power Bank
This Excitrus portable charger is similar to the previous Baseus power bank because it has a 20,800mAh power capacity and a 120W max output. So you’re getting a similar capacity charging experience with this power bank as with the Baseus power bank.
Charging power is relatively similar, too, with this Excitrus power bank featuring two USB-C Power Delivery ports, one USB-A Quick Charge port, and wireless charging at the top. One of the USB-C ports has a 45W output, and the other USB-C port has a 100W output. So you can charge your HP Elite Dragon Fly G3 while simultaneously charging another three devices.
Since NitroCharge power bank has a 120W max output, you can fast charge four devices simultaneously; because in our review for it, we were able to charge a Lenovo laptop and still super fast charge a Samsung Galaxy S20, fast charge an LG G7, and fast wirelessly charge a Galaxy Note 9. Recharging this power bank is just as impressive as the output because you can recharge it at 100W with a 100W Power Delivery wall charger, but it does not come with a wall charger and only includes a USB-C to USB-C charging cable.

Fanttik T8 Apex 65W PD Jump-Starter Power Bank

This Fanttik jump-starter is an exception because it has a 65W USB-C Power Delivery port and a USB-A Quick Charge port; of course, the impression is that a 65W PD port that you can use to charge USB-C laptops.
