Charging a Samsung GALAXY TabletBy Admin
|The iPad competitors seem to be arriving now. On the new Samsung GALAXY, it appears that it will also charge from USB as the car charger on the accessories tab connects to a USB charging cable. If anyone has any details, please let us know. We’d love to test our USB battery and 4 Watt chargers on the new tablet.
Update: The Galaxy has its own 30-pin proprietary adapter on the end of its USB cable. It is designed to connect to a “high-power” USB port that outputs 2A vs roughly 0.6A for a normal USB port. Customers report that the Galaxy will trickle charge when off from a normal USB port but that the battery will not charge when running. Trying to determine time to charge time when tablet is off as well as whether the power from a normal USB port keeps the tablet at the same battery level (or slow the descent) when running.
