Yoga 900 - Power Bank PB500, will it charge the laptop battery?

I recently purchased the Yoga 900 and was recommended with purchase the Power Bank PB500.  It was my assumption that this could be used to charge the tablet.  It doesn't appear to charge it.  Should the Power Bank PB500 be able to be used to charge the Yoga 900?

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

Based on the specs for the PB500: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/itemdetails/GXV0J50547/460/63C3D7E1BE38426686B3BD23D636A397

specifically: 5V2A / 5V1A output, it will not charge the Yoga 900's battery. The laptop requires a 20V input.

 

Hope this helps to clarify.

Regards.

Hello!
Tell me how the power charge on Yoga 900, a special usb cable with two additional contacts. According to them there is a D20 V for charging?
Appear powerbanks with charging 20 V, but they for example can be a port of the Type C. For example Asus zenpower max power bank 28600mah
But how to connect it? or a cable look?

For example Xiaomi QingMI , it has the extendable cable allows you to charge devices QC and charge laptops 20 V, but is not supplied cable for Yoga 900, only the cable for other models of Lenovo. As a compact size compared to standard adapter, and of a greater number of ports USB.

The only way to power the Yoga 900 or charge its internal battery is with the supplied power adapter and its specially-designed cable.

 

Personally, I'm keeping an eye on this device: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/omnicharge-smart-compact-portable-power-bank-smartphone-powerbank...

The power adapter would plug right into its AC socket.

Not inexpensive at US$150. And it weighs as much as the Yoga notebook it powers. But at least it's available now:

 

Portable Charger RAVPower 27000mAh Built-in AC Outlet Universal Power Bank Travel Charger (Type-C Po...

 

N.B. I don't have this device so I can't comment on how well it works.

You can purchase a cable adapter from ebay called: "Converter Adaptor for Lenovo Yoga 4 Pro Yoga 700 Yoga 900 AC Charger 40W 65W 20V". Then it works with most power banks for laptops that support 20V output.
