The Galaxy Tab S6 is Samsung’s new tablet, and even though Apple is widely known for its iPad, Samsung has also provided quite a lot of value with their tablets.
The Tab S6 comes in at a size of 10.5 inches with a 1600 x 2560 Super AMOLED display. Its got a Snapdragon 855 and you can either choose between a 6GB or 8GB version of the tablet. Of course, the tablet has a large battery with its use of a 7,040mAh battery that can keep this tablet running for quite a while.
With that said, even with its larger battery, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 still makes use of a lot of power and this is especially true with its larger screen and if you’re using it for a long duration of time, the battery can run out of power faster than you think.
That’s why, in this guide, we’re going to be covering the types of chargers that you should be using to charge your Galaxy Tab S6. The first thing to know is that the Tab S6 is Quick Charge compatible, and it comes with a Quick Charge wall charger but only with a single port. We’re going to be focusing on fast chargers that have more ports, but different types of chargers. From wall chargers to power banks and car chargers, too.
Anker PowerPort Speed 4
The first charger that we’re starting with comes from Anker. This wall charger has four ports to use and the best part is that one of them makes use of Quick Charge 3.0.
So you fast charge your Galaxy Tab S6 and at the same time charge another three devices. Each of the USB-A ports has a 5V/2.4A charging speed, so they can still charge smartphones at a pretty fast charging speed.
Another great part of this charger that is not power-related is the form factor. The charger has a length/width of 2.7 inches, and a thickness of 1.1 inches. Along with a retractable AC adapter, you can place this wall charger in your pocket and take it wherever you want to. There is also a Blue LED light that turns on once the wall charger is plugged in to show that it’s ready to use.
Specs of the Anker PowerPort Speed 4 USB Wall Charger with Quick Charge 3.0:
Quick Charge Port: 3.6 – 6.5V/3.0A | 6.5 – 9V/2.0A | 9-12V/1.5A

Aukey Dual Quick Charge Wall Charger
If you’re reading this guide, then there’s a high chance that you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and if you’ve got a Tab 6, then there’s also a pretty high chance that you own an Android smartphone. Most Android smartphones are Quick Charge compatible since they use the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, such phones are of course Samsung phones, LG, Motorola, Asus, and HTC phones, too.
That’s why this Aukey dual Quick Charge wall charger can come in handy if you want to charge your Galaxy Tab S6 and your phone at the same time. Both of the ports on this wall charger features Quick Charge, and since the max output of this wall charger is 39W, you’re able to use the max power of the two ports at the same time. So you can fast charge your phone and your tablet.
The two ports will also charge any Non-Quick Charge compatible smartphones, too, but they will charge at the standard charging speed.
Specs of the Aukey Dual Quick Charge Wall Charger:
Each Port: 3.6V-6.5V/3A | 6.5V-9V/2A, | 9V-12V/1.5A
Max Output: 39W
- Input: 100-240V AC
- LED Power Indicator: None
- Size: 2.52 × 2.48 × 1.10 inches
- Weight: 6.4 Ounces
Anker PowerPort Speed 5 / Aukey 6-Port Desktop Charger
These next two chargers are very similar, and that because each of them makes use of two Quick Charge ports, and has even more ports.
First is Anker’s PowerPort Speed 5 desktop charger. The charger has a total of five ports, just as the name implies, and there are indeed two Quick Charge ports.
Another great option when it comes to having dual Quick Charge ports with a desktop charger and having other ports is Aukey’s variant. The only difference with this Aukey charger is that it has six ports rather than five from the Anker one. As a result, you’re able to fast charge your Tab S6, Android phone, and also charge another four devices at the same time.
Just remember though, that both of these chargers are desktop chargers. Meaning that they make use of a power cord and don’t have a built-in AC adapter. They’re still very small but you’ll be dealing with a power cord here.

UGREEN 10,000mAh Quick Charge – Power Delivery Power Bank
Like we said before, the Galaxy Tab S6 has a large battery, but that can run out pretty quickly depending on your usage. If you’re out and about, away from a wall charger and you’re running out of power you’re going to need a portable charger also known as a power bank.
We’re starting with a rather low capacity power bank first, and it might seem strange because you’d want to use a high capacity power bank for a device with such a large battery, but high capacity power banks tend to be quite large. We will get to high capacity chargers, but since the Tab S6 is already big, we thought we’d start with a small power bank.
Above is the UGREEN 10,000mAh power bank. The charger has two ports, with one being a Quick Charge port and the other is a USB-C Power Delivery port. Even though the Tab S6 is Quick Charge compatible, you can still use the USB-C port with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to fast charge your Tab S6, as USB-C can be used nearly universally as such to charge other devices.
To recharge the power bank you have to use the USB-C port and you can recharge the power bank at PD speeds when you use a Power Delivery wall charger. Or you can use a standard wall charger. This UGREEN power bank makes use of a digital power capacity display so you get a more accurate read of how much power is left as it’s shown in percentages.
The size of this power bank super small. It got a length of 3.7 inches, a width of 2.6 inches, and a thickness of 1 inch.
Also, with its 10,000mAh power capacity, you can expect to charge your Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 to its full power at least once. However, you can only achieve a full charge if you’re not using your tablet, because if you’re charging and using your Tab S6 then power will be discharging at the same time.
Specs of the UGreen 10,000mAh Power Delivery Quick Charge Power Bank:
USB-C Power Delivery Port: 5V/3A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A
Quick Charge Port: 5V/3A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A
- Input: 5V/3A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A
- LED Power Indicator: Digital Power Capacity Indicator
- Size: 3.7 x 2.6 x 1 inches
- Weight: 6.3 Ounces
Aukey 20,000mAh Quick Charge Power Bank with Lightning Input
Moving onto the higher capacity power banks, this is Aukey’s 20,000mAh portable charger. The charger has two ports to use, with them being the same as the previous UGREEN power bank that we mentioned. A Quick Charge port and the other is an 18W USB-C PD port.
With a 20,000mAh power capacity, you can get about 1.5 full charges for your Galaxy Tab S6. Yes, we know that the Tab S6 has a 7,040mAh battery but the power capacity with a power bank goes through a conversion, so you end up getting less power than what it initially starts with. A 1.5 full recharge for such a large battery is still great though.
Another great part is that this charger can be recharged from three ports, but only one at a time. There’s the USB-C PD port that can be used to recharge the power bank, there’s also a Micro-USB input and a Lightning input port.
So this charger is quite large but not as large as you may think. It has a length of 6.9 inches, a width of 2.7 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. So the charger is quite small in terms of being a high capacity power bank and you’re able to fit it into a pocket if you want to.

- Power Capacity:
Initial Capacity: 20,000mAh
Output Capacity: 15,000mAh

Anker PowerCore+ 26800 Quick Charge Power Bank with Quick Charge Wall Charger
This Anker portable charger is definitely on the high power capacity spectrum, as this power bank has a 26,800mAh power capacity. With this much power, you can rest assured that you’re going to be able to charge your Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 to its full power two times. You may even be able to fit in a few full charges for a smartphone, all while not having to recharge this power bank for a few days depending on your usage.
Then there’s the charging, and there are three ports to use. All of them are USB-A ports, with one using Quick Charge and the other two are standard USB-A ports that each have a 12W charging speed.
Since this is a premium power bank from Anker, two parts make it premium. One part is that the power bank comes with a Quick Charge wall charger, and you can use the wall charger to recharge the power bank at its max charging speed. You can also use the wall charger to charge your Tab S6, too.
The other part that makes this power bank premium is that it’s made of Aluminum, while most power banks on the market are made of plastic.
