Best USB-C Power Banks with Power Delivery (PD) Charging

New charging technologies are really what matters most nowadays when it comes to charging and using our devices.

The reason for that is because we’re getting larger batteries, but the battery tech that’s being used isn’t going to change soon.

So with the use of larger batteries, you get a long duration of use for your smartphone and other devices such as tablets and laptops, as they’re also getting larger batteries too. However, when it comes to recharging those devices that have larger batteries, the pain point is that they can take way too long to recharge.

That’s why there are fast charging technologies such as Quick Charge and Power Delivery. Quick Charge is the charging tech that you’re likely familiar with as it’s compatible with many Android smartphones on the market. That said, Quick Charge can’t exactly be universal because it has to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor. That’s where Power Delivery Delivery comes in.

Power Delivery is compatible with the new standard of USB-C. So, USB-C is new to the charging and connection standard that’s being used with lots of new portable devices that are being released. You may have noticed that all new Android smartphones are now using USB-C, many tablets are doing the same and even laptops are now using USB-C. Apple’s MacBook is using USB-C to charge from.

We’ve chosen the best Power Delivery portable chargers so you can charge your compatible devices at or near their max charging speed while you’re on the move.

Anker PowerCore+ 26800 Power Delivery Portable Charger

Starting off this guide with one of the most well-known and purchased from brands on the market, this is Anker’s PowerCore+ 26800 portable charger. It has a very high power capacity of 26,800mAh. The use of a very high power capacity along with a Power Delivery portable charger is quite important and that’s because the Power Delivery charging speed makes the conversion of power worse.

So using more power capacity gives you more capacity to use while you’re charging.

So when it comes to charging smartphones, this power bank can last you for about week if that’s all you’re charging with this power bank.

There are three output charging ports. There are two USB-A ports. Each of the USB-A ports has a charging speed of 5V/3.0A. The USB-C Power Delivery port has an output charging speed of 30W. Power Delivery of 30W is the standard when it comes to Power Delivery charging and it’s able to charge all Power Delivery compatible smartphones at their max chargings speeds.

Some Power Delivery compatible smartphones such as the Google Pixel 2 and the Essential Phone can charge at their max charging speed.

The other port is, of course, the USB-C port that uses Power Delivery. The Power Delivery charging with this Jackery Titan X power bank is a lot better than most other Power Delivery chargers because it has an output of 45W. So you can charge your certain PD compatible devices at a faster charging speed.

Such as the MacBook Air 13-inch can charge faster than the standard 30W charging speed that most other Power Delivery portable chargers provide. So this Jackery portable charger can charge it faster. Another thing is that this Titan X can recharge at Power Delivery speeds when you use a USB-C Power Delivery wall charger.

Fortunately, this Jackery Titan X portable charger comes with a 45W Power Delivery wall charger so that you can recharge this power bank as fast as possible right out of the box.

ZMI 20,000mAh USB-C Power Delivery Portable Charger and USB HUB

This ZMI power bank has a rather low power capacity when it comes to Power Delivery portable chargers., but at the same time, the charger still has some innovation to it that can make it worth getting. First, the low power capacity when it comes to Power Delivery is 20,000mAh in this case.

It’s still a good amount of power capacity that can charge most smartphones to their full power about 5 times if that’s all you’re using this power bank for.

Charging tablets and laptops with this ZMI portable charger will also result in full charges too, but that’s going to likely result in about two full charges for those larger devices.

Charging with this ZMI portable charger is the best part of this charger. It has three output charging ports. With the USB-C port being able to output 45W of charging power, so you can charge even more powerful Power Delivery compatible devices such as laptops at a faster-charging speed. What’s makes it even better is that you’re doing it with a portable charger.

There are two USB-A ports with this power bank and the USB-A ports use Quick Charge if you’re charging a single device at once. That’s said, if you’re charging two devices at once with the USB-A ports, then that will result in the USB-A ports splitting a 2.4A charging speed. Another great part of this power bank is that you can use it as a USB HUB.

It can be used as a USB HUB by connecting the USB-C port with a device and then placing a USB Flash Drive within either of the USB-A ports to share files. Pretty cool, and it’s a great feature to have with a Power Delivery portable charger, as most people who purchase this charger may charge their MacBook and having a file sharing a port with a power bank while it charges can be very useful to have.

Recharging this power bank is also done through the USB-C Power Delivery port, and this ZMI power bank can be recharged at a 45W charging speed.

Pros for ZMI 45W PD USB Hub Power Bank

  • 45W Power Delivery port and Two Quick Charge ports

Tronsmart Brio 20,100mAh Power Delivery Portable Charger

A brand that makes some great charging electronics and other products on the market, we’re glad that Tronsmart jumped on the Power Delivery portable charging train.

That’s because Power Delivery is such a useful charging technology and Tronsmart is a brand that makes some pretty good products. Put those two things together and what you get is this Tronsmart Brio USB-C Power Delivery portable charger.

It has a 20,100mAh power capacity that can charge most smartphones to their full power about 4-5 times. Charging larger devices with bigger batteries such as tablets and laptops will result in about 2-3 full charges.

So it still has a higher power capacity but not as much as other Power Delivery portable chargers that we’ve mentioned within this guide, such as Anker’s or Aukey’s Power Delivery chargers.

There are three Output charging ports with this power bank. There are two USB-A ports with each of the ports outputting a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. The great thing is that the two USB-A ports share a 4.8A (24W) max output, so you can use both of the ports at their max power at the same time.

Charging power with the Power Delivery port is also good but standard because it has a 30W charging speed that can charge most PD compatible smartphones, tablets, and some laptops at their max charging speed.

Of course, you can use the USB-C port to recharge this power bank, and do it at Power Delivery speeds with a USB-C Power Delivery wall charger.

RAVPower 26,800mAh USB-C Power Delivery Portable Charger

Going back into the very high power capacity ranges, this is RAVPower’s 26,800mAh Power Delivery portable charger. So basically the same amount of power capacity as the first Anker portable charger that we recommend. As a result, you’re able to charge smartphones to their full power many times over, and you can very well go a week without having to recharge this power bank if all you’re doing is recharging a smartphone with it.

Charging larger devices such as laptops or tablets will result in lower full charges because they have bigger batteries, but even so, this power bank can provide those types of devices about 3-4 full charges depending on how large the batteries are.

There are a total of three output charging ports with this RAVPower 26,800mAh portable charger. It has two standard USB-A ports with each having a 5V/2.4A charging speed, and they share a 3.4A max output, which is something that not many Power Delivery portable chargers have their USB-A ports do.

The USB-C Power Delivery port has a charging speed of 30W, so it’s a standard Power Delivery charging speed that can charge most Power Delivery compatible devices at or at least near their max charging speed.

This power bank can be recharged through one of two input ports. With one being the USB-C Port that can recharge the power bank at 30W Power Deliver speeds, but you have to use a 30W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger. This power bank does not come with a Power Delivery wall charger though. Or you can use a Micro-USB input port, and that will result in a 5V/2.0A recharging speed.

Pros for RAVPower 26,800mAh 30W Power Bank

  • 30W Power Delivery port
  • Features an additional two USB-A ports for charging another two devices at the same time

Jackery SuperCharge 10,200mAh 18W Portable Charger

When it comes to Power Delivery power banks, you’ve probably noticed in this guide that most of them have high power capacities. The reason for that is because most Power Delivery portable chargers are made to charge a Power Delivery compatible laptop.

The other port on this Jackery SuperCharge is a USB-A port with a standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A. You can also recharge the power bank at Power Delivery speeds when you use a Power Delivery wall charger.

One other power delivery portable charger with a mid-range power capacity that we wanted to recommend is this AideaZ portable charger. The charger has the same 10,000mAh power capacity that the other power banks have, what makes this charger slightly different though, is its charging outputs.
