X E3 with Elgato cam link

I have the above camera and I want to use it as a webcam. I know it works with the cam link but I need to know how I can power this externally. Elgato's site says I need to use a dummy battery. I don't want to use these as I don't trust them to be safe, and would prefer to use the Fuji recommended solution to increased battery life by using Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD as an external battery.

I am unsure if this would impact on the cam link functioning and wonder if you can help me.

So my question is would the cam link require I use a dummy battery for some reason or can I safely plug the Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD into the USB - C port of the Fuji and use the cam link fully at the same time

Thank you for your help.
