I wonder is there anything available on the market since MafSafe2 charging is pretty complex.

No issues, I just want buy a powerbank, for the price less then a cost of a second Macbook, if possible. Charging battery for 75% would be enough.

As far as I know, the capacity is not an issue, but the MagSafe connector is.
In fact, I found couple, but they are pretty expensive.

And I am not sure do they worth their price 100% and, if yes, why so?

Is it safe to use this: https://www.amazon.com/30000mAh-External-Outports-Capacity-Smartphones/dp/B071KBVJT5/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1542489659&sr=8-11&keywords=magsafe+power+bank plus some Chinese 3'rd party DC-to-MagSafe2 connector or it will kill my macbook's battery pretty soon?

But it seems that I literally don't have any choice... Except using Safari...

The Macbook lasts 4 hours with 276 battery cycle count using Chrome + occasional screen capture utility .

I think it's fair to have 4 hrs with Chrome. It uses a lot more CPU resources than Safari and so consume more power. Try Safari if you really want good battery life.

I read that using Safari gives +1hour of life which would be 5 hours in my case - just a half
of lifetime that was claimed by Apple for 2015 MBP 13". Is it seems absolutely normal for other apple users, since battery health stands at 94% point?
