USB-C Charger for Acer Swift Swift 5 SF514-52T series

Hi everyone. I am wanting to get a Powerbank charger for Swift Series 5 to use USB-C. I have seen here that this will worked provided that the charger specs meet - 45 W and 5/9/15/20V.

I have two questions please, if anyone can help. First, if the Powerbank exceeds 45W, say like 60 W or 100 W, is that still fine? It won't hurt my Swift? Second, when I look at various Powerbanks I often see know data about the "V". So, for example, there is the Anker Powercore+ 26800 PD 45 W. So it's 45 W obviously, but it gives no information about the "V". Can I just assume that the V will be sufficient?

Many thanks in advance for any and all help.

    @Bigrod888 higher wattage won't hurt because the Power delivery (PD)  on the power bank will automatically adjust the suitable voltage (like max of 20v) to charge the laptop. You can read more about how it works here: https://www.androidauthority.com/usb-power-delivery-806266/
    Please remember to include @AnhEZ28 when you want to reply back to my comment so that I can check your response.
    Thank you and have a nice day!

    Using the exact same model which came with the device or its supportive model as suggested by Acer support is advisable.

    If the voltage is 15 or 20v, it is okay to use a power bank with higher power and higher amperage. This can even make the battery charge faster. Only the voltage cannot be higher.

    Spec says DC-in port 20 V; 45 W for the USB-C port, so 15V may not work, but 20V certainly will as long as you have 45W or more.
