Hi nowacz1994,


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).
