The Surface Pro 7 is one of Microsoft’s best tablet/laptop hybrids. Coming from its predecessor, the Pro 7 may be one of the best hybrids to get as it’s large enough to be used as a laptop, and it has the power to go with it. Especially if you’re using the higher-end models that feature Intel Iris graphics that can be useful for graphic designers that use Photoshop and other video editing software, at the same time, the Surface Pro 7 can use up to 16GB of RAM; we recommend at least using 8GB of RAM to get the best performance.
With all of its power, the Surface Pro 7 and other Surface device’s portability is unmatched as you can foldable it quickly, and it weighs lighter than a laptop. With the high power usage, ease of portability for the Surface, the use of a USB-C port with the Pro 7 was a great addition as you’re able to charge the tablet via USB-C with a Power Delivery charger.
The Surface still uses the dated Surface Connect port for charging, too; however, with the ease of charging that you can get from using the USB-C port, we definitely recommend using a Power Delivery power bank for charging. In this guide, we’re covering power banks that are best to use for the Surface Pro 7.
RAVPower 30,000mAh 90W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
When it comes to charging the Surface Pro 7 with a power bank, you should get one that can charge the tablet to full power at least a single time. The Pro 7 has a 46.5Wh battery size, which translates to about a 5,000mAh battery capacity if we’re comparing it to power banks. Another aspect that’s important when choosing a power bank for the Pro 7 is the USB-C Power Delivery charging speed, and we recommend going with power banks that have a 30W PD charging speed or higher. You can still charge the Surface with an 18W charging speed, but it will be slower.
The first power bank that would work great with the Surface Pro 7 would be this RAVPower 30,000mAh portable charger. A 30,000mAh power capacity is a lot of power to use, and it’s great for the Surface Pro 7 as it’s a device that uses a lot of power and a large battery. This power bank can charge the Pro 7 to full power about two or three times, and just a reminder that the power capacity advertised is not the power capacity you will receive as there is power lost during charging. This is true for all power banks.
A 30,000mAh power capacity also allows you to charge other devices to full power simultaneously, such as smartphones.
There are two ports on this RAVPower power bank, with a 90W USB-C Power Delivery port and a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port. This is one of the fastest charging speeds that you can get with a Power Delivery power bank, and it’s able to charge the Surface Pro 7 at its max charging speed. You can use the QC port to fast charge Android smartphones, and when you’re charging two devices at the same time, then the Power Delivery port will output 65W, still plenty of power for fast charging the Surface Pro 7.
You can also recharge the power bank at 60W with a powerful enough PD wall charger; but this power bank does not come with a wall charger, but it does come with a USB-C to USB-C cable.

|USB-C Power Delivery Port||5V/3A | 9V/3A | 12V/3A | 15V/3A | 20V/4.5A, 90W Max|

PowerArc 15,000mAh 60W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
Going lower on the power capacity scale, this PowerArc portable charger has a 15,000mAh power capacity. A lower capacity, but it’s still a good amount for charging the Surface Pro 7 to full power at least a single time and possibly having leftover capacity to use later depending on if you’re using the Pro 7 while charging it.
There are three ports to charge from on this PowerArc power bank, with the charger having two USB-C Power Delivery ports and a single USB-A port. Each of the USB-C Power Delivery ports has a 30W charging speed; however, if you’re looking to charge a USB-C chargeable laptop, such as the Pro 7, we recommend using the second USB-C PD port as it charges better in our tests. The USB-A port uses Quick Charge 3.0 to fast charge Android-compatible smartphones.
You can also recharge the power bank at Power Delivery speeds, but this power bank only comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable, as most power banks do. This PowerArc portable charger does have a better build as the power bank is 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)|

Excitrus 45W 9,600mAh Mini Power Delivery Power Bank
This Excitrus portable charger is a unique power bank, as it has a 9,600mAh power capacity, yet it has a 45W USB-C Power Delivery charging speed. Power banks within this capacity range don’t use high Power Delivery charging speeds, and that’s what makes this Excitrus power bank a rare one. However, with a 9,600mAh power capacity, you can at least come close to charging the Surface Pro 7 to its full power.
The charging is impressive, with the charger being able to charge the Pro 7 at 45W, close to the tablet’s max charging speed, and along with the PD port, this power bank also has a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port and standard 12W USB-A port. The low power capacity does have its benefits, though, as the power bank can fit easily into a pocket.
Design-wise, the charger has a digital display that shows the remaining power capacity you have left to use, another different part than most other power banks that tend to use LED dots.
|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)|

|Size||4.3 x 2.5 x 0.9 inches|
RAVPower 45W USB-C 20,100mAh Power Delivery Power Bank
This is another RAVPower portable charger that’s low on power capacity and charging power. If you’re looking for a power bank from the same brand that we mentioned and want one at a lower price, this is a pretty good option. The power bank has a 20,100mAh power capacity, a low capacity, but it can still charge the Surface Pro 7 to full power a single time, and you can be left with some power to use later.
Like the other RAVPower portable charger, this one also has two output ports but slower charging. The USB-C Power Delivery port has a 45W charging speed, and the standard USB-A port has a 12W charging speed. A slower charging speed on the PD port, but a 45W charging speed is still useful for fast charging the Surface Pro 7. The USB-A port does not feature Quick Charge.
You can recharge this power bank at 30W, or you can use the Micro-USB input port. However, it’s best to use the USB-C port to recharge the power bank as it’s much faster.

Aukey 10,000mAh 18W Power Delivery Power Bank
On the lower end of charging, if you want a power bank that you can use to primarily charge your smartphone but also charge your Surface Pro 7, this Aukey power bank may be a good choice. The charger has a 10,000mAh power capacity, a low capacity, but just enough for charging the Surface Pro 7, and more useful for charging smartphones.
The charging is not very powerful, as the power bank has an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port. An 18W PD charging speed will charge the Surface Pro 7 at a slow charging speed and is more meant for fast charging Android smartphones and iPhones. This power bank power also has a Quick Charge 3.0 port, and you can recharge it at 18W via the USB-C port or the Micro-USB input port.
Another charging feature that not many other power banks have is that this power bank has wireless charging at the top.
|Quick Charge Port||5V/3A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A (18W)|

Crave PowerPack 50,000mAh 60W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank
This is one of the highest capacity power banks you can find; this Crave power bank has a 50,000mAh power capacity. A 50,000mAh power capacity is a lot of power no matter what you’re charging, and it can be beneficial for charging a large device like the Surface Pro 7. You can charge the Pro 7 to full power about four times or more with this Crave power bank, and it can also be useful for charging other devices at the same time.
Along with the high power capacity, the charging is also very powerful with the Crave PowerPack portable charger. The charger has two USB-C Power Delivery ports and two USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 ports. One PD port can output 18W, and the other PD port can output 60W. You can fast charge the Surface Pro 7 with the 60W USB-C Power Delivery port and use the 18W USB-C port for fast charging smartphones.
Another benefit of getting a power bank is that it comes with everything you need to start using it, with the power bank including a 45W PD wall charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable.
|Crave Powerpack 50,000mAh 60W Power Delivery Quick Charge Power Bank Specs|

MAXOAK 45W Power Delivery 99Wh AC Power Bank
Nearing the gap of a power bank crossing into a portable power station, this MAXOAK portable charger could be useful if you want to charge your Surface Pro 7 no matter where you are; at the same time, charge a few other devices and even power appliances. This MAXOAK power bank has a 45W USB-C Power Delivery port and two USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 ports.
The power station part on this power bank uses an AC outlet with a 100W power output. That’s a good power output that can be used to plug in an even more powerful charger or a low-powered appliance.
This power bank also brings a full package like the previous Crave power bank, with this one including a 30W PD wall charger and a USB-C cable; both of which can be used to recharge the power bank or directly used to charge your Surface Pro 7.
