Additional information links to a proposed 100 kW laser for the F-35. So in theory, the max energy output for the J-20 could reach 200 kW, or thwacking a drone-sized target at 9 km in 5 seconds.

Looks like trials have been going on for quite some time now. I wonder if the J-11 was specifically tested because of its twin engine's power output.

"PLA is procuring a laser attack pod, which Chinese media speculated could be an aircraft-based tactical weapon; laser could potentially protect against incoming missile attacks"

Looks like there is already a procurement bid.
