If you're looking for an external power bank for a laptop, this one has almost double the capacity AND has direct DC output (and the cables for most laptops) to avoid a double-conversion loss inverting to AC just to plug a laptop charger into to get converted back to DC: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YP823NA/?coliid=I3JG5F5STBKRXT&colid=2634ID043SSEJ&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

If you're looking for a USB external power bank, that is a substitute. If you need an AC outlet (which is the whole point of this product), it is not a substitute.

But if you need that AC outlet to plug in an AC to DC power adapter for your laptop, then the maxoak is leaps and bounds ahead of this one when it comes to efficiency and capacity.

Me too honestly. Seems to be difficult to find one with USB A & C, 12/20v DC output AND an AC outlet.

Cool unit but for local usage only since it's 50k mAh. TSA will consider this DG and will not allow on passenger plane if your intending the travel with it. The FFA limits 27k mAh maximum for air travel.

I don't fly much so I didn't know that. Are TSA agents that sharp to know the difference? Couldn't a strategically placed 27,000 mAh sticker pass it right through? 😂

TSA agents are a hit and miss. Some are anal others aren't.
