Does the TB3 port of NUC7ixBNH supports powering from it?

Hi there,

I got a NUC7i5BNH which I like very much so far. It has a TB3 port which is connected to my Lenovo Monitor via a USB-C cable. (The monitor supports USB-C video input.)

Just wonder why my NUC could not be powered via the TB/USB-C port ultimately by the monitor? If so, I could get rid of the power cable of NUC and just use the power from the monitor!

I read many comments from other people use the same monitor, saying that their Macbook Pro or other windows laptops could get powered/charged via the TB3/USB-C port.

Thanks a lot.

Because, unlike the MAC, the USB-C ports on the NUC do not support power input.
