According to the ebay link provided, it has 50000 mAh = 50 Ah and Voltage: 5v


From the Qantas baggage site. https://www.qantas.com/travel/airlin...ose-powerbanks , it states

Watt hours (Wh) are determined by multiplying the voltage (V) by the amp hours (Ah). ie. 12V x 5Ah = 60Wh (sic)

For your item , the Wh = 5 * 50 = 250Wh

According to dangerous goods list,

◾Lithium ion batteries exceeding 160Wh (not including mobility aid batteries)

are prohibited

The agent in Bangkok was correct and Qantas has no liability
