Although the battery pack and charger are more “luggable” than “portable,” they’re still a lot more compact than carrying around four separate charging bricks, which could make them useful for anyone who has to lug around a lot of power hungry accessories on a regular basis. So, for the 245W GaN charger that means being able to charge one or two devices at up to 100W each. The battery pack is capable of distributing that wattage in a variety of different ways depending on what your devices require. Instead, the focus is on charging multiple power-hungry devices like laptops simultaneously. As USB standards evolve to be able to provide more and more power over a universal cable, I suspect beefy chargers and battery packs like these are going to become a lot more common.
