Yoga 900 dock



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?

Re: Yoga 900 dock

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.


Reference the pictures in bananaman's post:


Hope this helps clarify the charging question.
