Hi, I have a question. Is it possible to charge 720s-14IKB via USB Type-C?
If so, with what kind of charger. Could it be charger like for a phone?

Welcome to the Community Forums.
USB type C port for the Ideapad 720s-14IKB specification (one USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1):
- support Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort 1.2a, power delivery, HDMI or VGA
Charging is conventionally through the power port on the other side and not via type C thunderbolt port. Others claim that the power indication lit using a 5v mobile phone charger notices added charge but too slow. The USB C port is not intended to charge the laptop rather charge smaller device instead.
Hope this helps answer your query.

Since this is the first result in the Google search I did, I thought I'd add this information.
While the USB C port may not be the intended way of charging the IdeaPad 720S, it does work flawlessly. I ordered a generic 65W USB C charger on Amazon and have been using it for a couple months with my IdeaPad 720S-14IKB when away from my desk (the OEM charger stays at my desk and is used when I am there).
