    It has to meet the voltage an amp requirements. As always when you use non-licensed unofficial hardware you take risks into your own hands. See my post on the USB-C display for issues I encountered using unsupported devices.

    That said if the power meets the requirements and does not exceed them you are probably ok.

    You'll want a USB-C powerbank that supports the 15V profile.
    Like the xiaomi pro.

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    A few Ravpower banks support 15V. 5V should do it too I think.

    15V power banks are pretty pricey and rare. 5v3a USB-C to C power banks will charge while you play, and are a bit more common/less expensive.
