I can't speak to your specific device, particularly as you haven't named it, but assuming it supports the functionality, you would use an adapter such as this one which provides both a micro-USB input to continue charging the phone/tablet, and a USB-A port for the OTG functions. You'll find a variety of alternatives linked to via Amazon as well, with ...

It is depending on your device. Some Samsung Tablets can be charged while using OTG with special adapters. The cable you post in your question don't work. Some devices have a special mode for USB Host and changing at the same time. Most devices can only charge OR host.

That is most definitely an INTERNAL batery, and I am also curious as to what you mean by "doesn't seem to recognize it". I'm not sure how you could install that externally as you imply. Did you follow the manufacturer directions EXACTLY? Did you charge it completely before powering yor device on? I am most curious becouse I plan to purchase the s5 version of ...

It wasn't really a new question. It's the same as this one but with all the mentioned precautions already in place. Plus a full power off would preclude apps from preventing a battery charge since it's not idle but off. So my contention is that these temp fixes seem t circumvent a major flaw in the system but nothing actually seems to permanently fix it. The ...

Actually Nexus 7 battery is easy to change. The back is easily carefully pried off, the connector inside comes undone without much effort. I replaced my battery with a new one still it only recharges to about 50% then begins to discharge. I'm going to try a slightly stronger charger. Though even fully powered off and charging over night did not increase ...

Chinese "Colorfly", Android 4.4.2 similar case. Long press the "Power" button, select "Power off". Connect to USB or charger. Charging starts a couple minutes later - depends on discharge level.

From a root terminal on your device: dumpsys batterystats | grep "Start clock time" That will give the date/time of when the device was last disconnected from the charger (while fully charged), rather than the time since, but comparing to the current date and time is easy enough. I did come up with a more complicated command you could save to a script to ...

Sure, my android cellphone Galaxy S2 has the function to stop charging when it's full. So you don't need to disconnect all time. Source

Your best bet is a simple car charger with USB port that allows you to plug in whatever cable you need. Ones with adaptive charging, such as an Anker with PowerIQ, ensure every type of device you plug in will charge at the fastest it can, minus Quick Charge 2.0 options. There's no issue with overcharging. Every device is designed to manage its power intake ...

Why don't you want to keep the phone plugged in overnight? Per Is it better to detach a charger when my Android device gets fully charged?, it sounds like sitting at 100% on the charger for ~6 hours is not considered harmful to the lithium-ion battery in your device. That said, you can purchase a light timer for under $20, set it to only turn on for an hour ...

Marty is correct! I had the same problem with a third-party USB charger that would charge everything I had, except my Samsung phones. They look for a specific voltage on a certain USB pin. By opening a charger that worked and the one that didn't, I was able to modify the one that didn't to also work. I'm not sure how USB connector pins are numbered, but ...

To use a charger for your device, see the following requirements: 1- The charger plug should fit into your device. 2- The charging source should voltage should be the same in type (DC or AC) and required voltage by your device should be the same as provided by the charger EX: 5V DC Output from charger should be 5V DC input to device. 3- The charger ...

If your using the charger that came with the tablet it doesn't matter really. You can use any charger if you want but it may lead to damage to the battery if you overcharge it. But the cable doesn't make a diffrence.
