Lenovo is mostly known to be a brand that specializes with laptops, but these days since tablets are doubling as laptops too, they have also stepped their game up in that department. It definitely shows with one of their best tablets, the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. The tablet has some great specs with it using a powerful Snapdragon 625 processor, it makes use of 4GB of RAM and the tablet also has a very large battery of 7,000mAh.
The battery and the charging are basically what we’re here to talk about, and it’s the charging that we’re focusing on in this case. That’s because along with such a large battery the Tab 4 10 Plus is also Quick Charge compatible and so you can fast charge it with a Quick Charge charger. In this guide, we’re going over the best charger that you can use to charge this Lenovo tablet at its max charging speed and ones that provide an overall good charging experience in conjunction with charging your other devices at the same time, such as a smartphone.
Types of charging electronics that are going to be mentioned will be wall chargers, portable chargers, and car chargers, as the Lenovo Tab 4 is USB-C compatible and so it can be used with many types of charging electronics and it’s not constricted to just a single type of charger even with it being so powerful.
Anker PowerPort Speed 2 Quick Charge Wall Charger
To start out with, the simplest and used charging electronics on the market are wall chargers and you actually get one with the Lenovo tablet. However, the negative part of the wall charger that comes with our device is that they use a single port and so you can only charge a single device at a time. That’s why getting a wall charger with multiple ports is a good idea.
The first wall charger is this Anker PowerPort Speed 2 wall charger that comes from a top brand in the consumer electronics space. The charger makes use of two Quick Charge ports, and that’s right, you’re able to charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphones at their max charging speed, at the same time. This is done because they’re both Quick Charge enabled (of course) and because the max output of this charger is 39W. With each port outputting 18W for Quick Charge devices such as the Tab 4 10 Plus, and Quick Charge smartphone, that’s how you’re able to charge both at their max charging speeds.
The form factor of the charger is quite small with its length of 2.4 inches and a thickness of 1.1 inches. The charger has a weight of 4.6 Ounces. So you can easily take this charger anywhere that you want, but it does not make use of a retractable AC adapter though.
Specs of the PowerPort Speed 2 Quick Charge USB 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: Single Blue LED Light with Light Sensor
- Size: 4.5 x 4.3 x 1.2 inches
- Weight: 6.4 Ounces
Aukey 3-Port Quick Charge Wall Charger
The next wall charge is basically a step above the previous wall charger, with this one using three ports. The charger has a single Quick Charge port and the other two ports are standard ports that each have a standard charging rate of 5V/2.4A (12W). So you can fast charge a Quick Charge compatible device and charge another two devices at once at once. The best part is that you can use the full power of all the ports at the same time and that’s because the charger has a max output of 43.5W.
It does make use of a retractable AC adapter that makes traveling with it a whole lot easier.

Quick Charge Port: 3.6 – 6.5V/3.0A | 6.5 – 9V/2.0A | 9-12V/1.5A

Max Output: 43.5W or 8.7A
- LED Power Indicator: Green Power Indicator
- Size: 2.8 x 1 x 1.9 inches
- Weight: 7.2 Ounces
Aukey 6-Port Desktop Charging Station with Two Quick Charge Ports
Another Aukey charger that we wanted to mention was their 6-port desktop charging station. The charger does indeed make use of six ports, so you can charge six devices at once, but more important than that, two of the ports make use of Quick Charge. So this charger is basically like having the Anker PowerPort Speed 2 that we mentioned but combined with a charging station.
With the use of two Quick Charge ports, you’re able to fast charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphones at the same time. The other four ports on his charger each have a standard fast charging rate of 5V/2.4A and the max output of the charger is 60W. So even if you’re charging two Quick Charge devices at the same time, there’s still quite a bit of power to go around to charge other devices.
The charger is not large at all, with it having a length of 4.1 inches, a width of 2.8 inches, and a thickness of 1 inch. It does use a power cord instead of a built-in AC adapter but in most cases that’s a better thing anyways as you get to choose where you want to place the charger.

EasyAcc MegaCharge D20 20,000mAh Doubin Portable Charger
Portable chargers are must if you have a portable device, which basically most of the population does and they can be even more important if you have a tablet. As tablets such as the Tab 4 10 PLUS make use of a lot of power and they burn into that battery fairly quickly. Once that happens, you’re going to want a portable charger to recharge the tablet while you’re on-the-go. Not just any tablet though, high capacity power banks that feature Quick Charge, because you’re definitely going to want a lot of power to recharge a 7,000mAh battery that the Lenovo tablet has.
The first power bank that we’re recommending is this EasyAcc MegaCharge D20 portable charger. The charger has a 20,000mAh power capacity that can be used to charge the Tab 4 to its full power about two times, however, you can only charge it this many times if you’re solely charging the tablet with the power bank, as charging many devices at once splits the power capacity to those multiple devices.
Speaking of charging other devices, you can charge a total of four devices at once with this power bank, as there are three USB-A ports with one using Quick Charge and the other two have a 5V/3.0A standard charging rate. The fourth port is a USB-C port with a 5V/3.0A charging speed.
As strange as it might sound, recharging this power bank is perhaps the best part; that’s because you can use the two inputs at the same time. The USB-C input has a 3A recharge rate and the Micro-USB input has a 2A recharge rate, so when you use them at the time, you’re able to recharge the power bank at a 5A recharging speed.

Initial Capacity: 20,000mAh

iMuto 30,000mAh Portable Charger with Quick Charge
Then there are very high capacity power banks, such as this iMuto power bank that makes use of a whopping 30,000mAh power capacity. With this much power, you can basically charge the Tab 4 10 Plus to its full power about three times. As for charging smartphones, that can be done about 8 times.
The power bank makes use of three ports. Two of the ports are USB-A, with one using Quick Charge and the other one is a standard 5V/2.4A port. The other one is a USB-C port that can be used with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to charge USB-C compatible devices such as the Tab 4 10 Plus, but it’s still better to use the Quick Charge to fast charge the tablet.
Recharging this power bank is also a good experience as the charger makes use of two input ports, but you can only use them one a time. The USB-C port can be used as an input and it has a 3A (15W) input recharge speed. The Micro-USB input is Quick Charge compatible and so we recommend using it to recharge the power bank at its max charging speed with a Quick Charge wall charger.

The compatibility with Quick Charge is also a great plus for a portable device, as you can be driving and having your device charge at its max charging speed. So when you reach your destination the tablet is either fully charged or at least full of more power. The car charger that we have to recommend in this case that basically covers your car charging needs, is this Aukey 3-port car charger.
