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.
50 , 000 milliampere hours is 50 ampere hours ( see https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/...mah-to-ah.html )

The manufacturer's site ( http://www.maxoak.net/laptop-power-bank/show/11.html ) states

REAL ULTRA HIGH CAPACITY 50000mAh/185Wh

185Wh exceeds Qantas's stated limit of 160Wh

The maufacturer's site also states
