    It seems the major issue is power under full load which is approximately 250-330wt for clevo laptops. This is the power of charger. Not of the battery.
    When charger is unplugged laptop will automatically drop its power usage to about 30-99wt.
    If powerbank will be connected to the charging port , laptop will be trying to take all the power out of it and this will definitely damage it. If laptop will see that powerbank can’t give all the power it needs it will not use it at all.
    To manage the problem we have to plug external laptop not to charging port rather than to battery connector inside of laptop.
    It means that clevo laptops need to have some kind of external battery plug.

    That and you need to get batteries that can output that level of power.

    Much easier to have a terminal and remote to your workhorse.

    for those who are interested, the only clevo with combination of cpu+battery power found,is the N650DU which in 7th gen,support till 7700 Desktop and in new released upgraded version, up to 8700 desktop(65watt cpu) coffee lake . this laptop by default has a 4200mah but there is 5600mah(64.4Whr) one too which in practice could give you more juice running laptop for more than 6 hours(some claimed till 9 hours which I don't think its true).as it's only one fan setup(as there is only integrated GPU{intel HD639} and no dedeicated graphic), using vaccume cooler like opolar or kilm

    but that's it for now.

    Update:
    for those who need Just CPU Power and intel integrated GPU is enough,the best current laptops built for is N350TW/N350TV is the currently out, it support up to 3Hard, listed cpus support are 35W like 8700T but some like eurocom(model:comander2) has listed even 95W no-hyperthreading ones like 9700K ,so 65W cpu is acceptable(make sure to delid+UV+OC+Repaste if you can to get the best performance+temps possible)
    it's listed up to 32GB ram support but again eurocom has listed up to 64GB ram.
    eurocom sell it with 100W adaptor while default is only 65W one.
    N350TW configurable in europe site
    the most important thing is that it has thunderbolt3,so all kinds of docks and even eGPu(external graphic solution) if needed is now as an option availble .The battery used is 62Whr which should give enough juice for more than 3-4 hours and the support for LTE 4G m.2 is very appreciated.the thickness is around 33mm

    for those who needs powerbank with higher than >120W output,these are the ones I found which are somehow portable(not UPS-like weight) and also has high capacity:
    best is this dual AC output 240W with 3.1A USB3.0 charging port:
