I just bought the anker 737 powerbank and got it. It came with less than 20% battery so I have to charge it. The thing is it only comes with 1 cable? This cable isn't a cable that you connect to it on one end and connect the other end to an outlet to charge it. How am I suppose to charge this to an outlet then to 100%? I read online people use a pd usb c charger or a magsafe charger? I don't have either of those. I need to buy another cable or power adapter in order to charge the anker 737? Could I use either my Apple 20W USB-C power adapter that I charge with an iphone 13 mini with this? I also have a very old 5W usb wall charger that I use to charge with old my iphone SE. Would the 20W work? But it charges slowly? I had no idea that this anker 737 didn't came with a charger to connect to an outlet. Seems ridiculous that when I read online people use a pd usb c charger or something similar and have to pay for another item to use with this anker 737?


I have the dell xps 15 9520 laptop and it charges usb-c and the dell charger is 130w. Can I use that or not? However, I read something about dell xps not allowing non dell charger or powerbanks to go over 100w when using it. However, can I use my dell xps 15 9520 usb c original charger for the laptop to charge this anker 737?


It only came with one cable. The cable that is supplied in the box... that is meant to connect to your laptop that has a usb c port to charge right? Then how would I charge say an iphone 13 mini? What about an old iphone se? Also what about the other end of that one cable?

You are limited by the type of USB connector at the end of cable. Most modern phones and other devices have USB-c connector but Apple resisted change for now. in EU they will be forced to switch.
You will have to get another cable or an adapter. Maybe something like this

Grab one of the Anker cables for best results: number 762, 641 or 310

Also grab one of the Anker chargers: I recommend the Anker 747 Charger for really fast charging of the power bank

Unsurprisingly, it tells you everything you need to know on the Anker website. Just buy a 30W usb-c wall charger from Anker. $25.00
It would of said in the documentation that it doesn’t come with one.

If you want a full 65W ($100) or 120W charger ($150) for fast charging, this is pretty much standard pricing. I’d go the 120W so you can charge your Dell with the same wall charger if needed.

I bought a HEYMIX 100w, it charges my wifes Lenovo Yoga, and a few other things at the same time.

It really couldn’t be any simpler unless someone threw one at you.

You will need to buy a charger for it. This is from an Amazon reviewer.

You telling me I can't use any of the chargers I currently have? I can't use my dell xps 15 9520 130w charging cable to charge the anker?


What about the Apple 20W USB-C adapter that I use to charge my iphone 13 mini? I can use that right except it would take longer to charge it?


But the 5w wall charger adapter that I use with the old iphone se won't work or that still works? I didn't know you had to buy anything else wit this.

Is this necessary though to charge the anker 737? The only reason why I bought it was because I thought it came with a cable to charge it to an outlet.

So can I use my dell xps 15 9520 laptop charger which is usb c and 130w with it or not? What about the Apple 20W usb c adapter that I use with my iphone 13 mini to charge the iphone?


I don't care that it takes a long time to charge the anker 737.

No, that’s not what I am telling you. BUT…

a standard USB-C wall charger…

…will possibly only give you 25/30w, which is fine but it’s possibly going to be a very long charge time for an Anker 737 Power Bank. If you already have USB-C chargers, then the question you’re asking is redundant.

The Anker 737 can take a 140w charger. Maybe if it isn’t taking too much out of your day, you could look at their website?

You’re asking if certain chargers will work, 5w? Why don’t you just try them, it’s a no-brainer, fella.

No, that’s not what I am telling you. BUT…

…will possibly only give you 25/30w, which is fine but it’s possibly going to be a very long charge time for an Anker 737 Power Bank. If you already have USB-C chargers, then the question you’re asking is redundant.

The Anker 737 can take a 140w charger. Maybe if it isn’t taking to much out of your day, you could look at their website?

You’re asking if certain chatgers will work, 5w? Why don’t you just try them, it’s a no-brainer, fella.

Well what you posted a picture of, I have an Apple 20W usb-c wall charger that looks like that which I use to charge an iphone 13 mini. So it works but much slower. But there is no issue with using that correct? The thing is I thought this anker 737 powerbank came with a cable to directly plug into an outlet so I was shocked it didn't and thought... now I gotta pay for an anker usb-c wall charger?


So that old usb wall charger that is 5W that you use to recharge older iphones like the old iphone SE, that wall charger doesn't work correct? That one is 5W I believe.


Would my dell xps 15 9520 laptop charger work since it's usb-c? It's a 130w charger so wouldn't that not only work but faster?



Why I don't just try these chargers to see if it would work? Well I don't want to risk damaging the anker 737 if I plug in the wrong adapter to it so that is why I ask these questions. I also wouldn't want to risk damaging my dell xps 15 9520 laptop charger as well if you aren't suppose to connect it to this anker 737 to charge it. So that is why I ask these questions.


If you google and look at the website, they don't say things like you could use an apple 20w usb-c charger specifically. The wording is not clear to me because I'm not even aware of all these usb-c adapters etc. Like if you ask me how I charge my iphone 13 mini, I would just tell you with a charger. I wouldn't even say a charging cable and that 20w wall adapter and I probably wouldn't even mention it's usb-c either.


So want to know which of these chargers I have would best work for it. I don't want to connect it to the anker when you can cause damage to it.

If you read my post…
You pretty much just asked me the same questions I answered above. Why do you do that?
I didn't even know what a usb-c charger was until I got this anker 737 and then though how am I even suppose to charge it as it didn't come with a charger.


Well that means I only have 1 regular usb c charger right? The one that looks like the one in the picture and it's an apple one and 20W?


What about my dell xps 15 9520 laptop charger that I use with the dell laptop and it's usb-c and is 130 watts? Can I use that or not? I am aware it won't charge 130w but will do max 100w. But is it safe to use it to charge the anker 737? I ask this question because I want to know if it's safe to use it with the anker.


In a previous post, you said get a full 65w ($100) or 120w ($150) charger for fast charging and that is standard pricing. You then say get the 120w one so you could fast charge your dell laptop if needed. This doesn't make any sense to me. I already have a dell xps 15 9520 laptop with the original 130w laptop charger usb-c that came along with the xps laptop. Why would I need to use a fast charger with my xps laptop? I already have a dell xps laptop charger?


Why would you need to buy one of these usb-c chargers for your laptop if your laptop has a charger that comes with it? The only thing I could think of is it's a 45w or 65w laptop charger and you want to charge your laptop faster and that is why you buy a 100w usb-c charger then?

If it uses USB-C, then yes you can.

What about the Apple 20W USB-C adapter that I use to charge my iphone 13 mini? I can use that right except it would take longer to charge it?
Yes, if it is USB-C to Lighting adapter, you can use that.

But the 5w wall charger adapter that I use with the old iphone se won't work or that still works? I didn't know you had to buy anything else wit this.
5W charger adapter will work to charge your old iPhone if it has either USB-C or USB-A in the other end. But because this is just 5W, only use it to charge the old Phone for anything else it will take forever to charge.

Brink. I took a look at that. One of the lines say



If your powerbank has 20K or more capacity with PD fast charging technology and higher wattage, please check the input requirements of your power bank and buy the wall charger accordingly. 30W, 45W, 65W, 120W and 140W links are below:



This anker 737 powerbank is 24000 mah. So that means the 20W Apple usb-c won't work then? Thus it's not compatible? Or it still work but charges slow?


My dell xps 15 9520 laptop charger that is usb-c is 130W. Would it work or not? The manual isn't clear on things like this such as if you use a laptop usb-c charger or not. I know that with the dell charger, even though it's 130w, it would go to 100w from what I read. So would this work or not?

It just means it will charge slower if you use a 20W USB-C wall charger.

I wouldn't use a PSU (brick) charger designed for a laptop.

I wouldn't use a PSU (brick) charger designed for a laptop.
Brink. So of the chargers I currently have


1. Apple 20W - usb c charger that I use with the apple charging cable to charge my iphone 13 mini.

2. Old Small Wall Charger for Old IPhone that is 5w most likely - I use this with a usb a to lightning cable to charge my old iphone SE

3. Dell xps 15 9520 usb c laptop charger that is 130w to charge my dell xps 9520 laptop


You recommend using the 1st option correct? And that would work and is safe to use? Would the 2nd option even work though? But you wouldn't recommend the dell brick charger because of safety issues or what reasons? The reason I don't want to just plug any usb c charger into it is I don't want to risk damaging the anker 737 so I want to know if any of these are safe to use to charge the anker 737.


Again I had no idea you are suppose to already have a usb-c charger to charge it. Seems ridiculous anker sells an anker 737 120w charger and it cost $80. I mean you are already paying $100 or $150 for the anker 737 and you have to pay for a charger seems ridiculous.


Anyone else who have opinion I would appreciate it. Seems ridiculous you have to buy 2 anker products just to use the powerbank.

You could use either 1 or 2, but of course it will charge slower with lower wattage.

Any USB-C wall charger will work.

So the 3rd option of the dell xps charger wouldn't work? Or it might work? But there is risk of damaging either?


Also I just noticed this. If I were to use the dell xps charger to connect to the anker 737, wouldn't that mean I wouldn't be using that cable that is provided by anker though compared to if I use the Apple charger? Since you plugging a usb-c directly into an anker? With the 20 W Apple usb c, well it would be that cable that is provided by anker and you connect one side to each?

Another thing that I'm confused about. So what about people who have a macbook or another laptop and their charger is usb-c? So they can't use that with the anker 737 to charge it? The thing is I see a lot of these 120w and 100w usb-c chargers that are like $80 or $100 and then I read people say they buy it. These are for people who just have a macbook. What is the point of people having these anker 120w or 100w chargers or those magsafe chargers for macbooks when they could just use the macbook charger that comes with their macbook or is there something I'm missing here?


There is no point of me buying one of these anker usb c chargers right in my situation? Seems ridiculous you need to buy a charger for the anker 737 if you already have a charger that would work for it.

If it's just a simple USB-C wall charger it's fine no matter the wattage for the anker 737.

The only reason to buy one of these anker chargers is if you want faster charging.

If it's a PSU brick type charger, those are more device specific that may or may not work with the anker 737. Best not to chance it.
