Best Power Banks for USB-C Compatible Chromebooks

Chromebook laptops have been on the rise for quite some time now and the main reason for that is because of their simplistic nature of usage. Chromebooks aren’t meant for the hardcore gamer, rather, there for the everyday student, business worker, blogger, coder, and any other general activities that you can think about. Overall, having a Chromebook is a great experience for those doing work that doesn’t exactly involve heavy power use, but it might require that you use your laptop for quite some time. Of course, like using any other portable device, a Laptop can run out of power.

When it comes to recharging the Newer Chromebook models, charging has been upgraded to the standard of USB-C. This is a great thing as USB-C tech is overall faster, makes the laptop slimmer and has universal usages. When it comes to charging the Chrome with USB-C, that’s when many doors are opened because there are now quite a few power banks that you can use with your laptop now. Having a portable charger to use with your Chromebook that is compatible with USB-C is a great thing to have because you no longer have to be stuck to an AC Outlet, as you can charge it wherever you are.

With all that said, all these power banks can be used with the following Chromebooks and any other laptops that use USB-C for their charging purposes:

  • Samsung Chromebook Plus
  • Samsung Chromebook Pro
  • ASUS Chromebook Flip C302
  • Acer Chromebook 14
  • Acer Chromebook R13

Another thing to note is that Chromebook needs 30W of power to charge at its max speed. Quite a few of the portable chargers in the list are not able to Output that much power. However, if a power bank does Output less than 30W of power, then a Chromebook can still charge, it’s just that you’ll be getting a notification saying “Low-Powered Charger” because the power bank isn’t giving enough power to charge your laptop at its max speed.

The last thing to know before you read is that most Chromebooks have a battery capacity of 5,140mAh and so you’re going to want a power bank with a high power capacity than that. The useful type of portable charger are ones that have very high capacities as those ones are able to recharge your Chromebook to its full power quite a few times over.

So let’s get started to see what portable chargers are going to be best to use with your USB-C compatible Chromebook.

#1: RAVPower 26800 PD Portable Charger

The first power bank on this list is your best bet for a great portable charging experience with your Chromebook and that’s because it has all the right parts. Starting with its power capacity, well, there’s a lot of it. A 26,800mAh power capacity is on the higher end of the high capacity power bank and this one can charge a Chromebook to its full power about 4 times. So you can basically rely on this portable charger for about a full week if you’re someone that only reaches half power with their laptop and that is a great thing. It’s the perfect type of charger to take with you on a business trip or road trip as there’s going to be a large amount power that is going to be available for quite a while.

The charging speed of this RAVPower portable charger is another reason that it had to be the first on the list. The charger has 3 Output ports. There are 2 USB ports that each have a charging speed of 5V/2.4A for your smartphone or tablets. Then the third Output of this charger is where it basically wins because this power bank uses PD with its Type-C port.

PD Charging

What does that mean? The Type-C port is able to Output 30W of power and that basically translates into charging speeds of  DC 5V/3A,9V/2A,15V/2A,20V/1.5A. To put it in plain terms, it’s basically the max charging speed of a Chromebook and for a power bank to be able to do that is not something that is very common. Just remember though, the only part of this portable charger that uses PD and can charge your Chromebook is the Type-C port; so you must use a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to recharge your laptop.

PD Recharging

Another amazing part of using this portable charger is when you’re not using it. By that I mean the recharging of this power bank is insanely good. As the power bank can recharge through its Type-C port and still use PD then as well. However, it’s important to know that if you’re recharging the power bank through its Type-C port, then you should use a USB-C wall charger for the PD recharging speed that will result in 4.5 hours for a full recharge. Which is really good considering the power bank has a 26,800mAh power capacity.

The Alternative to using the Type-C port for recharging is using the Micro-USB Input port that has a recharging speed of 5V/2.0A.

  • Capacity:    26,800mAh

#2: Jackery Titan S 20100mAh Power Bank

This Jackery Titan power bank may not have as much power capacity as the RAVPower portable charger above, but it still has quite a good amount. That’s because a 20,100mAh power capacity portable charger is able to charge a Chromebook to its max power about 3 times if you solely charge one with the power bank.

The charging power of the Jackery Titan is also quite good as it has a 2 USB Ports, with one USB port having a charging speed of 5V/3.0A, which is faster than the standard 5V/2.4A. The other USB port features Quick Charge which is great to use with smartphones that are compatible with Quick Charge tech. Then there’s the third Output of the power bank and that would be the Type-C port.

The Type-C port is capable of outputting 30W of power and so it can charge your Chromebook at its max charging speed. That said, just remember that you can’t charge anything else if you want to charge your Chromebook quickly because 30W is the overall output of power that this portable charger is able to release.

Recharging of this portable charger is done through its Type-C port as well and it can recharge at 5V/3.0A speeds. It’s best to use a Quick Charge USB wall charger to recharge the power bank at its max charging speed though.

The charging power of the power bank is also really good. That’s because there are two PoweriQ USB ports that both have a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and then the third Output port is the is the Type-C cable that is going to be used with your Chromebook. The Type-C port on this power bank is really good because it uses Power Delivery that is able to Output 30W worth of power. This means you can charge your Chrome at its max charging speed when you do use this power bank. Just remember that you have to charge your Chromebook alone when you’re using this charger otherwise you won’t be able to take advantage of the full 30W that’s available.

As this charger has a 30,000mAh power capacity that can charge your Chromebook to its full power about 4 times.

This portable charger also makes use of two Input ports. You can use the Type-C port as an Input port and there’s also the Micro-USB Input port.

#5: iVoler 10,000mAh Power Bank

This iVolver portable charger doesn’t really have a lot of power, because of its 10,000mAh power capacity. This power capacity is mostly the only able to charge a Chromebook to its full power about 1.5 times. Even though it might sound like a bad thing to have such a low power capacity, it makes the power bank smaller and easier to take places. So you’re basically sacrificing less power for more portability when it comes to this charger.

There are two Output ports for this power bank. There’s the regular USB port that has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and then there’s the Type-C port with a 5V/3.0A. Ultimately, your Chromebook won’t be charging at its max charging speed but it’ll at least be charging when you solely charge it with this power bank using a USB-C to USB-C charging cable. The portable charger is also recharged through its Type-C port too.

#6: Vinsic 20,000mAh Power Bank

pic-1

Coming at a pretty standard portable charger for your devices and also for your Chromebook, this Vinsic charger is quite for good for what it offers. That’s because if you’re solely charging your Chromebook with this charger then you’re able to get about 2.5 full charges. Charging other devices simultaneously will obviously result in fewer changes because more power is being split up.

There are 3 Output ports for this power bank for this charger. There’s the standard USB port that has a 5V/2.4A charging speed; it also has a Quick Charge port that you can use to charge compatible devices at their max charging speed. Of course, it has a Type-C port that can be used as an Output port to charge your Chromebook. That said, there is no Power Delivery with this power bank and so you’ll have to settle for slow charging speeds.

There are actually 2 Input ports for this power bank and that is quite unusual because this is a 20,000mAh power capacity that we’re talking about here. You can either use the Type-C or Micro-USB Input ports to recharge the power bank. Unfortunately, you can’t use both of the input ports at the same time. We highly recommend that you use the Micro-USB Input port to recharge the power bank as it uses Quick Charge, so you should use a Quick Charge USB wall charger when you recharge it with the Micro-USB Input port.

#7: iMuto 30,000mAh X6 Pro Portable Charger

Yet another huge 30,000mAh power bank.  This portable charger is quite famous for having the ability to charge the Nintendo Switch as many users who have bought it can do so. Luckily, another great attribute it has is the ability to charge a Chromebook. That’s because this iMuto portable charger has a Type-C port that can be used with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable and then charge your Laptop. There’s no PD here, but the charger does a good enough job at charging a Chromebook, just as it does with charging a Switch.

The other two options for using this power bank is the use of standard 2.4 Amp port and the charger also has a Quick Charge USB port.

There are two main ways to recharge this power, as you have probably noticed that this is a common reoccurring parts for these power banks that use Type-C. In this case, you can either use the Type-C port for recharging or you can use the Micro-USB Input port. We highly recommend that you use the Micro-USB Input port for recharging it because it uses Quick Charge; once you use a Quick Charge USB wall charger with the Micro-USB Input port, you’re able to recharge the power bank faster than the Type-C port.
