An interesting question that was brought to me today is related to that MacBook Pro battery capacity: "How much mAh does the battery of the MacBook ProThe answer was not that easy to find and of course you have to differentiate between the different models of the Apple laptop, because the 15 inch Retina MacBook has a different Lipo battery than the version without Retina display, and then there is also the 13 inch models. Since 2016 a distinction has been made between Function Key and Touch Bar models ...
The following table shows the values that I use iFixit was able to find out (updated on February 3, 2017):
The question about the mAh is particularly interesting with regard to the use of one Power bank to extend the life of the MacBook Pro. These additional batteries, which can be used to charge laptops, smartphones or other devices without a mains connection, are called power banks. Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with charging the MacBook with such a power bank. There are also only a few models that come with one MagSafeadapters and even they still use MagSafe 1 and need to be re-equipped with a MagSafe 2 adapter.
Update from February 3, 2017: The MacBook Pro models now have Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C ports. This makes using a power bank with a MacBook or MacBook Pro much easier.
Under the headline Learn about batteries in Mac notebooks has Apple this extensive support article released. In the guide to batteries in MacBook / MacBook Pro you will not only find bare numbers, as in the table above, but also settings in the system of the individual models. These can be used to reduce battery consumption.
