Chromebook laptops have been on the rise for quite some time now, and the main reason for that is their simplistic nature of usage. Chromebooks aren’t meant for the hardcore gamer; rather, they’re for an everyday student, business worker, blogger, coder, and any other general activities 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 USB-C standards. 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 Chromebook 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 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 (Only Compatible with 45W Power Delivery Charging)
- Acer Chromebook R13 (Only Compatible with 45W Power Delivery Charging)
Another thing to note is that Chromebook needs 30W of power to charge at its max speed. Quite a few of the portable chargers on 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 has very high capacities as it recharges your Chromebook to its full power quite a few times over.
So let’s get started to see what portable chargers will be best to use with your USB-C compatible Chromebook.
#1: RAVPower 30,000mAh 90W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
One of RAVPower’s latest portable chargers is this Pioneer 30,000mAh power bank with a 90W USB-C Power Delivery port. The 30,000mAh power capacity is the first great part of the charger because you will want a high capacity to charge your laptop to full power at least one or more times. In this case, you can charge most laptops to full power about two times, so you don’t have to worry about recharging the power bank every time you use it.
The other powerful part is the charging power that we already mentioned. This RAVPower charger uses a 90W USB-C Power Delivery port; this is one of the highest PD charging speeds that you can find on a power bank. This 90W USB-C port can charge your Chromebook at its max charging speed, which can be very useful if you want to stop relying on the power bank as soon as possible. With such a high PD charge rate, this power bank is practically future-proof and can be used to charge most USB-C chargeable laptops.
In addition to the Power Delivery port, this power bank also has a USB-A Quick Change 3.0 port, and if you’re using both ports at the same time, then the PD ports lower their speed to 65W; a 65W PD charging speed is still tons of power.
This RAVPower portable charger can be recharged at 60W, but this power bank does not come with one. You do get a USB-C to USB-C cable included in the box.
|RAVPower 30,000mAh 90W Power Delivery Power Bank PB232 Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||5V/3A | 9V/3A | 12V/3A | 15V/3A | 20V/4.5A, 90W Max|
|USB-A Quick Charge Port||5V/3A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A, 18W Max|
|Max Output when using Both Ports||PD 65W + iSmart 18W, Total 83W Max|
|USB-C (Input)||5V/3A | 9V/3A | 12V/3A | 15V/3A | 20V/3A, 60W Max|
|Size||5.9 x 3.4 x 1 inches|
#2: Crave PowerPack 50,000mAh 60W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
Power Delivery portable chargers that use higher PD charging rates almost always have high power capacities; this MAXOAK portable charger is definitely one of the highest capacity power banks that you can find on the market that does not have an AC outlet. We say that is because power banks with this much power capacity usually have an outlet.
However, that’s not the case here. With a 50,000mAh power capacity, you can genuinely use this Crave PowerPack for charging your Chromebook for about a week before needing to recharge it. It’s also a ton of power that can be used to simultaneously charge other devices to full power, such as tablets and smartphones.
The charging from this Crave power bank matches the capacity as the charger uses two USB-C PD ports and two USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 ports. One of the Power Delivery ports has an 18W charging speed, and the other one has a 60W PD charging rate; you’d use the 60W PD port for charging laptops, and the 18W port is more useful for fast charging smartphones.
You’re able to recharge this power bank at 45W, and that can be done right out of the box because this charger includes a 45W PD wall charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable in the box. The size of the power bank is much larger than a regular power bank simply because of its very high power capacity, so there is no way that you’re going to fit this into a pocket. Holding it and being potable with it is completely possible.
|Crave Powerpack 50,000mAh 60W Power Delivery Quick Charge Power Bank Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port 1||5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A | 15V/1.2A (18W)|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port 2||5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A | 15V/1.2A (60W)|
|Both USB-A Ports||5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A (18W)|
|USB-C PD Input 1||5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A | 15V/1.2A (18W)|
|USB-C Input 2||5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/3.0A | 15V/3.0A | 20V/2.25A (45W)|
|Size||8.2 x 5.4 x 1.3 inches|
#3: MAXOAK 99Wh 45W USB-C Power Delivery AC Outlet Power Bank
This MAXOAK portable charger is a portable power station and power bank hybrid. That’s because it’s not too large that it can be considered to be a full-on power station, and it’s still small enough that we still think it’s a power bank. The charger has a 99Wh power capacity, and that’s about a 26,000mAh power capacity. It’s a good amount, but the main highlight of this charger is that it uses an AC outlet that can output 100W of power. This outlet enables you to plug in a higher Power Delivery charger to charge your Chromebook; you may also use the outlet for small appliances that fit within the 100W power range.
Of course, you can definitely leave the AC outlet to power a small appliance if you want to because this charger has a 45W USB-C Power Delivery port. It also has two USB-A ports that use Quick Charge 3.0. This MAXOAK AC power bank is one of those chargers that would be most useful for those camping trips because it can be used to charge your Chromebook, and it can be used to power appliances.
The charger also includes a 30W PD wall charger that you can use to recharge the power bank and a USB-C to USB-C cable.
|MAXOAK 99Wh 100W AC10 Portable Power Bank Specs|
|Power Capacity||99Wh | 26,756mAh|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||5V/3.0A | 9V/3.0A | 12V/3A | 15V/3A | 20V/2.25A (45W)|

|AC Outlet||100W | 140W Peak Power|
|Size||7.1 x 3.9 x 2.3 inches|
#4: Excitrus 9,600mAh 45W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
As we mentioned before, power banks that use higher power delivery charging speeds usually tend to have high power capacity because they’re used to charge laptops with large batteries. This Excitrus portable charger takes a different turn, with this power bank using a mid-range power capacity of 9,600mAh. Yet, the power bank has a 45W USB-C Power Delivery charging speed.
This lower capacity does have limits, of course, with the power bank only charging your Chromebook to full power only once. That said, the size of this laptop charging power bank is about 4 inches only, and so you’re able to fit it into your pocket easily.
The 45W PD port can charge most USB-C laptops, and the power bank also has a USB-A Quick Charge port and a standard port. An LCD shows the remaining power capacity you have left to use to the side of the power bank.
Included in the box with the power bank is a USB-A to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-C cable. SO you can start using the power bank right out of the box, and they can be used to recharge it.
|Excitrus 9,600mAh 45W Power Delivery Power Bank Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||20V/2.25A | 15V/3A | 12V/3A | 9V/3A | 5V/3.0A (45W)|
|USB-A Quick Charge Port||3.6V-6.0V/3A | 6.0V-9.0V/2A | 9.0V-12.0V/1.5A (18W)|
|USB-A Standard Port||5V/2.1A (10.5W)|
|Max Output||USB-C Power Delivery Port Alone: 45W |
When Charging Multiple Devices: 25W
|USB-C PD Input||20V/2.25A | 15V/3A | 12V/3A | 9V/3A | 5V/3.0A (45W)|
|Size||4.3 x 2.5 x 0.9 inches|
#5: PowerArc 15,000mAh 60W Dual USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
This PowerArc portable charger also has a mid-range power capacity, but it’s on the higher side than the Excitrus portable charger with a 15,000mAh power capacity. It’s a good amount of power capacity that you can use to charge your Chromebook to full power about one time and still have some leftover capacity to use later.
This PowerArc charger has two USB-C Power Delivery ports, with one outputting an 18W charging speed and the other has a 30W PD charging speed. There is also a USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port that you can use to fast charge Android smartphones. The power bank includes a USB-C to USB-C cable, and in our review, we found that it was one of the most high-quality cables that we’ve ever used; the power bank itself is also high quality with it being made of Aluminum, while most power banks are made of plastic.
|PowerArc ArcPack 15,000mAh 60W Power Delivery Power Bank Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||5V/3A | 9V/3A | 12V/2.25A | 15V/2A (30W MAX)|
|USB-A Port||3.6V-6.0V/3A | 6.0V-9.0V/2A | 9.0V-12.0V/1.5A|
|Three Devices charging at the same time||USB-C Power Delivery Port: 30W |
USB-C PD Port 2: 12W
USB-A Port: 12W
|USB-C PD Input||5V/3A | 9V/3A | 12V/2.25A | 15V/2A (30W MAX)|
|Size||4.5 x 3.1 x 1.0 inches|
#6: RAVPower 26,800mAh 30W PD Portable Charger
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 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 of power that is going to be available for quite a while.
This RAVPower portable charger’s charging speed is another reason 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 tablet. Then the third Output of this charger is where it wins because this power bank uses PD with its Type-C port.
What does that mean? The Type-C port can Output 30W of power, which translates into charging speeds of DC 5V/3A,9V/2A,15V/2A,20V/1.5A. To put it in plain terms, it’s the max charging speed of a Chromebook and for a power bank to do that is not something 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.
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, you should use a USB-C wall charger for the PD recharging speed resulting in 4.5 hours for a full recharge. This is 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 with a recharging speed of 5V/2.0A.
|RAVPower 26,800mAh 30W PD Portable Charger Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||5V/3A | 9V/2A | 15V/2A | 20V/1.5A (30W)|
|USB-A Port||5V/2.4A (12W)|
|Micro-USB Input||5V/2.0A (10W)|
|USB-C Power Delivery Input||5V/3A | 9V/2A | 15V/2A | 20V/1.5A (30W)|
|Size||6.77 x 0.79 x 3.15 inches|
#7: ZMI 20,000mAh USB-C Power Delivery Portable Charger and USB HUB
This ZMI 20,000mAh USB-C Power Delivery portable charger is different from most other Power Delivery chargers because it has some powerful PD charging and can be used as a USB HUB. First, though, let’s go over the power capacity, which is 20,000mAh.
So the power capacity of this charger is 20,000mAh, and this is lower than most Power Delivery portable chargers on the market. That said, you’re still able to get a few full charges for your laptop and other devices too.
When it comes to charging with this ZMI portable charger, you have three options.
There’s, of course, the USB-C Power Delivery port which has a 45W charging output.
The other two outputs are two USB-A ports, and they have an 18W max output. This means you can fast charge a Quick Charge compatible smartphone if you’re only charging a single device with the USB-A ports.
Another thing is that this charger can be used as a USB HUB once you have your device connected to the USB-C port.
As a result, you can connect things like a mouse or a flash drive to use with your laptop. Something that very few portable chargers can do.
|ZMI 20,000mAh USB-C Power Delivery Portable Charger and USB HUB Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||5-20V MAX 45W (15/3A) or 40W (20V/2A)|
|USB-A Quick Charge Port||5V/2.4A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A (18W)|
|Standard USB-A Port||5V/2.4A (12W)|
|USB-C Power Delivery Input||5-20V MAX 45W|
|Size||6.3 x 3.2 x 0.8 inches|
#8: Zendure 26,800mAh 30W Power Delivery Power Bank
Another very high-capacity power bank that features Power Delivery on the market is this Zendure charger. The charger has a 26,800mAh power capacity so that you can get about two or more full charges for a laptop.
What’s even more impressive than the high power capacity from this power bank is that this charger uses five ports. There are four USB-A ports with a 5V/2.4A charging speed, and the fifth port is the USB-C port.
The USB-C Power Delivery port has a 30W charging speed.
To top it all off, this Zendure power bank has a digital power capacity display that’s a lot better to use than a few dots. As you get a more accurate reading of how much power is left.
|Zendure A8PD 26,800mAh USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||5-20V | 30W|
|Each Standard Port||5V/2.4A (12W)|
