In addition, even if you had a Powerbank of 30Ah you would have still required written authorization by Qantas to carry it.
It hasn't changed. That was my mistake. I've now edited that post. Sorry.

It was within the limit though. 50000mAh doesn't equal 50Ah. I think this is because of the way they quote powerbank capacity. My powerbank had 6-8Ah at 18-20V which is within the limit.
