If you’re in the market for getting a new laptop, you’ll be very confused about which is the best choice for you. There are top-tier laptops such as the Dell XPS, Apple’s Macbook, and Microsoft’s Surface devices on the higher cost range; frankly, these top-spec laptops are not exactly worth it for most consumers because most are just looking to get simple work done. Instead, on the more mid-range side, it’s best to go for a laptop like the HP Pavilion Aero that has some reasonable specs but comes at a good enough price.
The HP Pavilion Aero fits a good balance of performance and price because it features AMD Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 processors, and on top of that, you get to choose to have either 8GB or 16GB of RAM. We recommend going for the 16GB RAM option. On top of that, you can select configurations that include either a 1080p or 2K display, along with an NVMe SSD storage that can go from 256GB up to 1TB; you can get a combination of these specs for under a thousand dollars. That means a lot when high-tier laptops offer the same performance while costing much more.
Hardware-wise on the outside, the HP Pavilion uses a headphone jack, two USB-A ports, one USB-C port, an HDMI port, and a power cord connection. The power cord connection is for DC charging, but the better part is that you can use the USB-C port on the laptop for charging as well. With the specs, you’re getting and the ability for more effortless access charging via the USB-C port, we recommend getting a USB-C charger for the HP Pavilion Aero because USB-C chargers can have multiple ports to charge the laptop and other devices. This guide covers chargers that you can use for the HP laptop to offer a more flexible charging experience.
KOVOL 120W 4-Port USB-C Power Delivery Desktop Charger
This KOVOL desktop charger is the perfect example of a USB-C charger being the better option for charging your HP Pavillion Aero because it has two USB-C Power Delivery ports and two USB-A ports with 120W max output. This charger can charge two laptops simultaneously because if you’re charging two laptops, each of the USB-C PD ports can output 60W, making it possible to charge your HP laptop and another USB-C laptop. You can also use 100W of charging power when charging from a single USB-C port, allowing you to charge particular USB-C laptops faster.
When charging the HP Pavilion Aero via USB-C, the minimum charge rate is 45W, and the max you’ll need to get the fastest charging is 65W. So charging four devices simultaneously with this KOVOL desktop charger still allows you to charge your HP laptop. The one USB-C port can output 65W, the other USB-C port will output 20W, and the two USB-A ports will output 18W. You can charge a laptop and still fast charge three smartphones or tablets.
This is a desktop charger, so it doesn’t have a built-in AC adapter like a wall charger, so you have to keep track of the power cord when traveling. However, the usage of a power cord does increase flexibility when it comes to placing the charger where you want it.

SAIL01 65W Dual USB-C GaN Power Delivery Wall Charger
On the more portable but still powerful charging side, there’s this SAIL01 wall charger. The SAIL01 has two USB-C PD ports, with USB-C 1 having an output of 18W no matter if you’re charging one or two devices, while USB-C 2 changes charging speed depending on if you’re charging one or two devices. USB-C 2 can output 65W if you’re charging just a single device from this charger, or it will output 45W when charging two devices.
Charging your HP Pavilion Aero even with 45W is excellent because you can still fast-charge a smartphone simultaneously, but if you want to opt for faster charging, you can charge the laptop alone. To add to the charging power, this SAIL01 wall charger also features PPS super-fast charging for Samsung phones, Google Pixel, and OnePlus smartphones.
This wall charger’s size is also tiny, with just a length of 2 inches and a thickness of 1 inch. The box with the charger includes a 3.3-foot USB-C to USB-C cable that lets you start charging immediately.

Baseus 100W GaN Power Delivery Wall Charger
We mentioned that you only need a Power Delivery charger with a 65W or 45W charging speed, but if you want a charger covering an extensive range of USB-C chargeable devices, then Baseus wall charge is a good option. This wall charger only has a single USB-C Power Delivery port, so charging options are limited, but that single port has a 100W PD charge rate that can charge your HP laptop at its max charging speed. At the same time, it can also be used to charge most USB-C laptops and other USB-C devices.
This charger is also tiny even with its power output, with it just having a length of 2.6 inches. The box with the charger is a 4-foot USB-C to USB-C cable.

MAXOAK 99Wh Portable AC Power Bank with Power Delivery
Portable charging can be just as important as using a wall charger because the HP Pavilion Aero is an easy mobile device that you can take anywhere. If you’re low on power when using the laptop in public, or if you’re using your computer in your home and don’t want to move next to an outlet when using your laptop, then a power bank is the best type of charger to operate.
This first MAXOAK portable charger is different than your regular power bank. This one has a 100W AC outlet that you can use to plug in your original DC charger that came with your HP Pavilion Aero. This allows you to have the USB-C port free for connectivity if you need it. However, if you don’t have your original charger available, you can use the 45W USB-C Power Delivery to charge via the USB-C port on your laptop.
Additionally, this MAXOAK power bank has two USB-A Quick Charge ports.
Included in the box with the MAXOAK charger is a 30W Power Delivery wall charger that you can use to recharge the power bank and a USB-C to USB-C cable.

Baseus 65W 20,000mAh Power Delivery Power Bank
On the more normal side of portable charging, this Baseus power bank with a 20,000mAh power capacity can get the HP Pavilion to full power about two times. That said, total power charges to the laptop are more dependent on whether you’re using the laptop while charging.
Charging power from this Baseus power bank is excellent because it has a 65W USB-C Power Delivery port and two USB-A Quick Charge ports. You can use the total 65W of Power Delivery from the USB-C port if you’re charging only a single device. If you’re charging your HP laptop via USB-C and another device via the USB-A ports, the USB-C PD output will decrease to 45W. Still, 45W is enough to charge the HP Pavilion.
Recharging this unit is just as fast as its output because you can restore the power bank at 60W with a 60W or higher PD wall charger. You may also use the Micro-USB input port for recharging, but we recommend using the USB-C port for recharging as it’s much faster.
The box includes a USB-C to USB-C, but you don’t get a PD wall charger with the power bank.

Crave PowerPack 50,000mAh 60W Power Delivery Power Bank
This Crave PowerPack portable charger is “the” charger to get if you want the best portable charging for charging your HP Pavilion Aero. However, we must say that the cost of top-tier charging comes at a steep price. However, the high price of this power bank is justified because you get a whopping 50,000mAh power capacity that can last a few days without needing to recharge the power bank, and it’s definitely useful if you don’t want to bother with the hassle of restoring a power bank every day.
Charging power is excellent, with the power bank featuring two USB-C Power Delivery ports and two USB-A Quick Charge ports. One USB-C PD port has a 60W output, and that’s the one that you’re going to want to use with your HP laptop, while the other USB-C port has an 18W charge rate. You can use either of the USB-C PD ports for recharging, but you want to use the 60W USB-C port for charging as you can recharge it faster.
The box with the power bank includes a 60W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable. You can use the included wall charger to recharge the power bank, and you can use the wall charger to charge your HP Pavilion Aero directly.
