Best power supply?

I like this kind of power supply, however, it is a bit overkill - I use it as a backup power supply for my laptop but it also works well for Pinecil.
I also have this (60W) power supply which works well.

Maybe a power supply like this would be also good.

Generally, PD and QC-capable power supplies are working, the higher the voltage rating is, the higher the output power of Pinecil.
Basically a 20V-capable power supply which can provide 60W power can be used to use Pinecil at its full power.

Other QC power supplies are also working, but some of them are only capable of providing 12V or 15V where Pinecil also can be used but at a reduced power, so reduced / slower heating.
