Yoga Pro 3 not charging with external battery

I recently bought an external 11000mAh battery that charges my phones and ipad.

 

As my Yoga Pro 3 has a USB connector at the adaptor end of the cable I thought

that I could plug it into an external battery and it would charge like every other 

device on the market.

 

But when I plug it in, nothing happens.  No charging, the lights do not even turn on

on the battery like when I charge something else.

 

Was I mistaken?  Is there a lenovo setting I am missing?

 

I would appreciate your help.

The lenovo Yoga 3 pro needs like 20 volts to charge, so it is not going to work im afraid.

Thank you for your reply.  

 

I am so unhappy with my Yoga.  From the slow browsing, bad battery life to this.

 

Why have a USB power adaptor and no other means to charge it?

 

So disappointing I should have gone with the Surface Pro 3.
