When it comes to fast charging laptops these days, most of them can charge using USB-C Power Delivery This is because many laptops on the market use USB-C ports that can be used for many things, such as a display port, to transfer files, and one of the most useful features would be that they can charge from USB-C ports.
The MacBook is now among the most common types of laptops that can charge using USB-C PD, but many laptops are following in its footsteps and have been for the past few years. Most recently, the Acer Swift 3 and Swift 5 are popular laptops that have adopted the USB-C port for charging, and connectivity.
The Swift 3 and the Swift 5 are somewhat popular laptops and have been known to be great for college students because of their low price and still maintaining great performance with pretty good specs. In this guide, we’re going to be covering USB-C PD chargers that you can use to charge the Acer Swift 3 and the Acer Swift 5, these chargers are going to range from power banks, wall chargers, and car chargers. So you’ll have the ability to charge your laptop nearly anywhere which is one of the great benefits of Power Delivery.
Power Banks for Acer Swift 3 and Swift 5
When it comes to charging a Power Delivery compatible laptop with a power bank, the charger must use at least 45W of Power Delivery charging power, at least in this case for the Acer Swift. Another factor to take into account would be the power capacity since the Swift has about a 5,045mAh battery and the Swift 3 has a 3,220mAh battery.
So we’re going to be aiming for power banks that have higher power capacities that can charge these Acer laptops to full power either one or more times.

This charger has a high 26,800mAh power capacity, so you’re likely going to be able to charge your Acer laptop to full power about two to three times. Just know that if you’re using and charging your laptop at the same time, then you’re not going to charge your laptop to full power as many times.
This is because laptops use a lot more power when they’re being used rather than turned off or sleeping.
The charging of this PowerCore+ is better than Anker’s PowerCore+ 26800 model which has a 30W Power Delivery charging speed. That’s because this PowerCore+ model has a 45W Power Delivery charging speed.
45W is good enough for charging most Power Delivery compatible laptops, and in this case, it would be able to charge your Acer Swift laptop even while you’re using it. The two USB-A ports share a 5V/3.0A charging speed.
The other parts of getting this power banks not related directly to the charging of this power bank are the build quality as the charger is made of Aluminum. Also, this Anker power bank comes with a 60W Power Delivery wall charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable, you can use both to recharge the power bank and to also charge your Acer Swift laptop.
