I have a Yoga 720 model 81C3000LUS. Can I use a portable charger to charge it?
Would this work to charge my Yoga?
or do I need this one that looks like it has 45w output as opposed to 30w for the above one?
If not, is there something else like this that would work?

Looks like you might be the Guinea pig for these. I carry a slim travel charger, but not a power bank such as these. I'm usually around AC power long before the Yoga's battery gets low. I also have an inverter in both of my vehicles. Gotta say, I DO miss Dell's AC/DC travel charger. That thing was compact and didn't require an inverter in cars. Wish someone would make one of THOSE.
If you pick up one of those, let us know your results. Especially w/r/t charging time. I'd like to know if one of those can completely charge a Yoga and, if so, how long it takes. I'd consider adding it to my bag for long flights, though my longer flights always seem to be on planes with power ports.

I found this one works with my Yoga 920...
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger...
That's interesting. So I don't need a 45W Power Delivery Charger? The one you pointed out is a little pricey, do you think something like this
would work as well? Seems like they are pretty much the same as what's in your link as best I can tell.

Maybe I am too late to the party but wanted to leave this here to clarify, Yoga 720 15'' cannot be charged with a USB Type C charger. Perhaps you have the 13'' model which I believe can be charged with Type C. In any case I don't know if there are portable chargers capable of charging the 720 15'' model.
