The great part about owning a smartphone these days is that you don’t have to settle for the most expensive options with all the bells and whistles. As the smartphone market has expanded exponentially over the years, so there’s a wide range of phones for you to choose from. In this case, we’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy A52, Samsung’s newest budget smartphone; if you didn’t already know, Samsung does have a Galaxy A lineup of smartphones that is much more affordable and offers some powerful specs.
The new Galaxy A52 has a Snapdragon 720G, a fast processor that can be difficult to tell the difference between the higher-end Snapdragon processor; you also get 4GB or 8GB of RAM depending on which model you go with. The Galaxy A52 has a 1080p display, so not the highest res display, but it makes up for the display being Super AMOLED, having 800nits of brightness. Along with the bright screen, you also get a 90Hz refresh rate, and the A52 even has a 4,500mAh large battery.
That said, the performance you get with the Galaxy A52 is snappy, and even with its large battery, it can tend to get drained quickly. Thankfully, the A52 is fast charging compatible, and we recommend that you use a power bank with it, so you don’t have to worry about running out of power when you’re going about your day. In this guide, we’re covering power banks for the Galaxy A52, with the ones in this guide featuring fast charging and enough power capacity to keep you charged up for most situations.
UGREEN 10,000mAh PB172 Power Delivery Power Bank with Built-in USB-C Cable
The max fast charging speed that you can get for the Galaxy A52 is 25W. However, that is only with the PPS charger that you have to purchase separately. The next best option for fast charging that you can use with a power bank would be an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port, and that’s what most of the chargers in this guide will feature. Along with enough power capacity to charge the A52 to full power at least once.
The first power bank that we want to recommend is this UGREEN 10,000mAh PB172 portable charger. The power bank has a 10,000mAh power capacity, enough to charge the Galaxy A52 to full power about two times; however, we want to clarify that power capacity is lost during charging, especially high-speed charging. So you may only get a single full charge from this UGREEN power bank depending on how much you’re using your Galaxy A52.
The charging from this UGREEN power bank is varied as it has a built-in USB-C port, a USB-C Power Delivery port, and a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port. The built-in USB-C cable is what makes this power bank so reliable to use with the A52, as you’re always able to charge the phone. The built-in cable has an 18W PD charging speed.
You can recharge the power bank at PD speeds with a PD wall charger. Included in the box is a USB-C to USB-A cable and a USB-C to USB-C cable.

RAVPower 20,000mAh an 18W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank with LCD
When a 10,000mAh power bank isn’t enough, it’s best to go with a 20,000mAh portable charger because, in this capacity range, you get much more power to use without sacrificing portability. This RAVPower portable charger’s 20,000mAh power capacity can charge the Galaxy A52 to full power about three times. The charging is also great, with the power bank featuring an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port, a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port, and a standard 12W USB-A port.
It’s best to use the USB-C Power Delivery port to fast charge your Galaxy A52 with this power bank. Recharging this RAVPower is as good as its output charging, and that’s because you have three options to use for charging the power bank. The fastest way to recharge it would be the USB-C port, and the next best would be the Micro-USB input port. This power bank even has a Lightning input port that makes this power bank reliable to own for iPhone users.
Not directly charging related, but this power bank also has an LCD screen that shows how much power is left and if you’re using fast charging such as Power Delivery or Quick Charge with your Samsung Galaxy A52.

JIGA 30,000mAh 3-Port Output and 3-Port Input Power Bank
Suppose you’re not worried about fast charging your Galaxy A52 and want a power bank with many ports and tons of power capacity that can keep your phone charged up for many days and charge up other devices to full power many times, then consider this JIGA power bank. The JIGA power bank has a 30,000mAh power capacity, lots of power that can be great for charging smartphones and can also be useful for charging tablets.
There is no fast charging on this JIGA power bank. However, we think that’s a good thing because it makes the price of this power bank lower, much lower than comparable 30,000mAh power banks that do have Power Delivery. Each of the standard USB-A ports has a 5V/2.0A (10W) charging speed; definitely not enough charging power for fast charging your A52, but it’s an alright charge rate. You also have three options to recharge the power bank via a USB-C port, Micro-USB, or Lightning input port.
The power bank itself is large and a bit heavy, but that’s basically what you get when you have 30,000mAh of power capacity to use.

Xcentz 5,000mAh 18W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
There’s this Xcentz portable charger on the lower capacity side that is odd to recommend for the Galaxy A52 because the phone has such a large battery. This Xcentz power bank has a 5,000mAh power capacity, and for most phones on the market, this power bank won’t be able to charge a phone up to full power a single time; however, it will get close, and it’s enough to keep you using your phone at full steam ahead throughout the rest of your day. Just a reminder that the Galaxy A52 has a 4,500mAh battery, nearly the amount of power that this portable charger has.
Charging speed is not lacking on this Xcentz power bank, though, as it has an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port and a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port. You can use either of the ports to fast charge your Galaxy A52, and what’s more impressive is that this power bank has two fast-charging ports, with most mini power banks in this capacity range featuring only a single standard port.
What makes getting this power bank even more worth it, is that it comes with a USB-C to USB-C, and a USB-C to USB-A cable, allowing you to use the power bank right out of the box.

|Size||3 x 1.4 x 1.1 inches|
Odec 20,000mAh 20W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank with Quick Charge
This Odec power bank is similar to the RAVPower portable charger mentioned before, but this one uses fast charging with all of its ports. The Odec power bank has a 20,000mAh power capacity, a good amount to keep your A52 charged up for about two days if you’re charging the Galaxy phone to full power about three times.
Charging power is not lacking, with the power bank using three fast charging ports. There are two USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 pots and a single 20W USB-C Power Delivery port. The power bank includes a USB-C to USB-C cable in the box that lets you start using the charger right out of the box.
