Yoga 530: charge over USB-C

I have a Yoga 530-14IKB and try to charge it using an Anker PowerPort USB C charger. The charger should deliver 30 W, but does not seem to charge the Yoga. The same adapter charges a HP Elitebook without an issue.

 

Do I have to enable something in BIOS or somewhere else or is the charger just too weak?

According to this post, your computer doesn't charge through USB-C.

This post refers to the ARR (AMD variant). The IKB (Intel) variant should load from USB-C - at least from the specification.

Generally, if a computer has an old-school, dedicated charging port, the charging capability through the USB-C port is not enabled.
