Hi Thinkpad-X1-Car, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
The first Lenovo power bank you mention will not power an X1C6, but the second one will.
I have the second one (Lenovo USB-C Laptop Power Bank 14000mAh 40AL140CWW). It also comes with a USB-C to Lenovo Slim-tip power adapter which is very handy. It works for systems which use 45W or 65W, USB-C or Slim-tip AC power adapters.
As for the question as to whether ANY USB-C power bank will power an X1C6... beware, and check compatability before you buy.
Hope this helps!
