Yoga 720 usb-c port not charging my phone, but usb-a does! where is the usb-c power delivery setting

so i use an essential phone that comes with a usb-c to usb-c cable, if i plug my phone into the usb-c ports. the power direction GOES INTO the laptop. but what i want is to charge the phone FROM the laptop. just like if i plug in a USB-A -> USB-C cable to my phone, that works fine.


why not usb-c? where are the settings to change this direction?

Re: Yoga 720 usb-c port not charging my phone,

Hi geminihc!


Thanks for posting in our community


As per checking, this model Yoga 720 does not have power delivery (a protocol specification which supports power delivery up to 100W of power while transmitting data in a single cable. It's designed to be a more universal charging standard that allows a range of devices (not just smartphones) to charge quickly over a USB connection) reason why the phone will not charge. You may check the product specifications in this link as well
