I am looking for a docking station that will charge a Yoga 900, will drive an external 4K monitor, and has a USB port to connect a DVD.
Lenovo recommends Thinkpad USB Pro, but Lenovo says that this will not charge the Yoga. I don't know if the problem is with the Yoga or the dock.
Are there any alternative products that will charge the Yoga and drive the display?

Good day and welcome to the community.
The issue with charging the Yoga 900 (and others in the series along with the Yoga 3 Pro prior) is that power inlet requires the specific, keyed USB cable, which has two extra contacts on either side to carry the required 20V. I know of no USB charger, other than the Yoga's own, nor of any dock which is capable.

Hope this helps clarify the charging question.
