Apple today updated its online store to offer several new Mophie products, including the Powerstation Pro, GaN 120W Charger, and multiple car chargers.
Priced at $150, the Mophie Powerstation Pro offers 20,000mAh for charging iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices. It offers up to 45W, so it is able to charge a MacBook Air, plus it can fast charge the iPhone and the iPad.
There are dual USB-C PD ports for charging two devices at one time, and Mophie says that it offers 72 hours of additional battery life on an iPhone and eight hours for a MacBook.
Available for $100, the Mophie Speedport 120W GaN Wall Charger includes three USB-C PD ports and one USB-A port for charging up to four Apple devices at one time. It provides a total of 120W, which can be split across the devices being charged.
A single device using the first USB-C port can access up to 100W, while two USB-C ports can provide charging power starting at 99W. It is made using Galium Nitride (GaN) technology to keep the size compact, and it comes with a 2m USB-C to USB-C cable.
Apple is also offering several different Mophie Car Chargers, all of which plug into the 12V auxiliary power outlet in a vehicle.

And the Anker one has more ports.
Some batteries are run at a higher voltage though, so you have to check with what the battery's design voltage is. For instance, the Magsafe battery from Apple ran at double the voltage so it had half the amp-hourage of its competitors but people didn't get that the voltage it's run at is double (though in fairness it was a bit small compared to competitors too, but it's a pretty slim battery with up to 15 watts of Magsafe charging capability when plugged in, no one has that in that compact a package).
This one is likely quoting its 3.7 volt nominal average. So it's 3.7 * 20 Ah = 74 watt-hour energy.
Amp-hour is kind of stupid as a system. Watt-hour is better, though joule is the "real" SI unit that should've been used originally.
I'm loyal to the Anker brand.
E.g. a 5,000mAh battery means "pulling 5,000 mA from this battery constantly for one hour will reduce its voltage to its nominal value". Similarly you could theoretically pull 1,000mA for 5 hours and reduce the battery to its nominal voltage.
Of course one needs to understand wtf an Ampere actually is for this to be meaingful, suffice to say "unit of electrical current".
So a 6,000mAh battery will have "more capacity" than a 5,000mAh battery -- assuming same operating conditions and without regard for their nominal voltages.
I feel usage of mAh is very much marketing tactic, similar to usage of "megapixels" and storage sizes that are base-10 instead of base-2. ¯\(ツ)/¯
