Is there such a thing as a portable power point?

I mean one where you don't need to plug into the wall, you can carry with you wherever you go, and use it to plug in whatever you want wherever you want.

I ask because I bought a heater for a room without a power point, I thought it was battery operated, but it isn't, it needs to be plugged in.

There may be language differences, when I say power point, I'm talking about this: https://www.sparkydirect.com.au/p/2025WE/clipsal-2...

    Jump starters for cars often have a mains inverter with a wall type socket.  However, it runs off a small lead acid battery an it will only run a heater for about a minute before you have to recharge it.  You could get a larger power inverter running off a car-sized battery - but it would be cheaper to get a new socket fitted.
