is there a portable battery large enough to power the 11.6" MBA for an hour or two?

I just realized that the batteries in my iPad and MBA are both a little over 5000mAh.

I have a 9000mAh Samsung portable USB battery that can power the iPad.... just wondering if there's a way I can use it to power the MBA?

This is the battery that I have...

But those batteries are good enough for running iPad for 10 hours and 2013 MBA for 9-10 hours. :)

but how do I connect my Macbook Air to the battery's USB port?
There are enough capacity (apparently) but the voltage is wrong.

USB puts out 5 volts, I believe the Air needs like 9 volts or more.

I am pretty sure there are external battery pack for the Air, is just money Jack!
