Now that manufacturers have (somewhat) gotten their acts together, it's possible to find a USB-C Power Delivery battery for nearly any laptop with a type C input. The Jackery is about as large as the TSA allows on planes, and it fully recharges in under 3 hours, which is a little quicker than most. If you're not flying, the Krisdonia is an excellent, long-lasting choice, with a larger capacity than other portable options. The Goal Zero Yeti is for you if you'll be working with multiple devices for long periods of time — its plethora of power plugs is perfectly suited to somewhat larger appliances like fans, small TVs, and CPAP machines. Goal Zero's Sherpa also quite functional, though with fewer ports and a much lower capacity. The ZMI, Dodocool, and Zendures are all quite affordable, and work almost as well as the more expensive options. Whichever you choose, make sure before purchasing that it is, in fact, compatible with your particular model of laptop.
