I've had very mixed results when trying to power the camera using a USB only powerbank. It may charge the battery but often can't power the camera when using the dummy battery. The XTPower powerbank however, works very well with the dummy battery. I have used it many times for timelapse and cold nights out in the field. It takes the worry out of switching batteries while doing a long timelapse. I simply velcro the powerbank to my tripod. Simple and effective.
Yep, I just tried a 2A USB powerbank on my A6300 while recording in 4K and the battery level still drops noticeably, which means the dummy-battery route with the XTPower is the way to go for heavy-use applications like video or time-lapses.
