YOGA 720: AC charging through USB 3.1 Type-C; blinking quickly (amber)



I have a YOGA 720-13IKB (8th gen i7, Portuguese model) for about two weeks, so I'm still testing the machine.

Yesterday I tried to AC charge it through USB 3.1 Type-C port (#3 in this picture from user manual, since it's a PowerDelivery port and can be used as a AC power adaptar jack, according to this.

The thing is... As soon as I plugged the AC, battery status indicator started quickly blinking in amber (3x blinks). I left it for about 15-20min and it was still quickly blinking (the computer was turned off).


According to this table, there's no status "Blinking quickly (amber)" while Charging, so I have no idea what it means.

In any case, I believe it was charging the battery, because I left it with around 5% of charge before turning it off, and after those 15-20min it had more than 20% (it was slowly blinking white when I plugged the AC on the "normal" port, #1 in the first picture).


So... My question is: Is this normal behaviour? Does the quickly blinking amber mean something bad?


Quickly blinking usually isn't good, specially in amber, haha.


Thanks & cheers!
