USB 3.0 docks are not capable of powering a computer (unless some non-standard functionality is used, and even then only a small amount of power can be supplied). The only standards compliant way to power a computer from a USB dock is a USB type C dock with power delivery capability connected to a USB type C port on a suitable laptop.

 

The X1 Yoga does not have USB type C, so the only dock that can power the X1 Yoga is the OneLink+ Dock. You will need to connect a power adapter as well as the USB 3.0 dock if you wish to power the X1 Yoga.

What about a Yoga 370, the 370 has a USB C port,  can it be charged by the Think Pad USB 3.0 Pro Dock?

Machines that use a USB-c charger can charge via a USB-c dock

If I read it correctly charging with usb 3.0 is possible at the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen. Does anybody know if it is possible to create this option in my 1st Gen Thinkpad? With a hardware change maybe?

Hi Alexoo89, Charging a ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen with USB 3.0 is not possible. It does charge with USB-C, if you have the right adapter (outputting 20V at least 45W). It is not possible to retrofit an X1 Yoga 1st Gen with USB-C charging.
