Best Power Delivery Chargers for Microsoft Surface Pro X / Surface Laptop 3 / Surface Pro 7 (2019)

Microsoft didn’t have the best run with competing in the smartphone marketplace. Windows phones had the best intentions of literally having a pocketable Windows computer, but compatible apps were severely lacking and quickly turned customers away.

However, Microsoft has been excelling in different spaces of tech. Most notably, the laptop space and the tablet/laptop hybrid space. In this case, we’re talking about the Microsoft Surface Pro X and the Surface Pro 7, which are both a hybrid of a tablet and a laptop. Surface Laptop 3 is Microsoft’s latest laptop at the time of writing this article.

All of these devices offer the latest that Microsoft has to offer in terms of power, portability, and what’s important for us here at Charger Harbor, charging accessibility. The Surface Pro X, the new Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 are all Power Delivery compatible. This opens many doors when it comes to charging each of them, as you don’t have to use the Surface Connect port for charging.

In this guide, we’re going to cover a few Power Delivery power banks, car chargers and wall chargers that you can use to make charging your Microsoft Surface device a lot easier.

Best Power Banks for Microsoft Surface Pro X / Surface Laptop 3 / Surface Pro 7 (2019)

Alright, so the first thing to know when it comes to charging the above-mentioned Surface devices is that you can use the USB-C port on them to charge them. The other part is that you have to use a USB-C Power Delivery port on a charger to charge from, and the Power Delivery charging speed should be a minimum of 30W.

One more important part is that the cable that you use to charge your Surface device should be able to transfer Power Delivery charging power. That’s why we highly recommend Anker’s USB-C to USB-C charging cables, as these cables are known to work very well when it comes to Power Delivery chargers.

Surface Pro X – 5,039mAh

Surface Pro 7 – 5,702mAh

Surface Laptop 3 – 6,041mAh

Chargers in this Guide:

Above are the battery sizes for the Surface devices, and now that you know them, let’s take a look at some portable chargers that would be good to use with them.

Anker PowerCore+ 26800 30W Power Delivery Power Bank

The first power bank that we’re starting with comes from Anker, a brand that is highly rated when it comes to charging electronics. They are especially preferred for their power banks, and this PowerCore+ 26800 of theirs shows that.

The power capacity of the power bank is 26,800mAh. That’s a ton of power even for charging the Surface Laptop 3 with its 6,041mAh battery size. You can charge each of the Surface devices to their full power two times with no hang-ups, and you might be able to fit in three full charges, too.

Of course, with that much power capacity, you’re able to charge your smartphone to full power at the same time, while charging your tablet or laptop.

There are three ports to use, with two USB-A ports, and the USB-C PD port with a 30W charging speed. The best part of this power bank is that it brings the full package, because this charger comes with a 30W PD wall charger that you can use to recharge the power bank at its max charging speed, and you can use it to charge your Surface devices directly.

The power bank also comes with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable.

Pros for Anker PowerCore+ 26800 30W PD

  • High power capacity that can last a few days without having to be recharged
  • 30W Power Delivery port

RAVPower 20,000mAh 60W Power Delivery Power Bank

Another brand that is popular and is basically on par with Anker by our standards, is RAVPower. Their power banks hold quite a punch with their charging power, and we find that to be true with this charger of theirs.

This power bank has a 20,000mAh power capacity which is enough to charge your Surface tablet or laptop to its full power about two times. That is if you’re not charging another device at the same time. A 20,000mAh power bank for charging tablets and laptops should be a minimum when it comes to charging larger capacity devices.

The capacity is not the highlight, the charging power is, as this power bank has a 60W USB-C Power Delivery output. This is a ton of charging power for a power bank to output. In this case, charging a Surface Pro X, Pro 7, or a Surface Laptop 3 with a 60W charger can charge them very fast. Charging them with a portable charger with a 60W charging speed is an absolute blessing, as it’s double the charging power than the Anker PowerCore+.
