I am connecting a Nexus 10 to an Arduino board in host mode. The Arduino board has its own power supply, but is still drawing power from the tablet. This post suggests that this may happen if the consumption is less than 6.6v

Is there a way of telling the tablet to not charge the Arduino board?

  • Are you asking about code to put in some of your application ("programatically"), or a general setting? – Izzy Jan 10 '14 at 13:05
  • @Izzy For any way of achieving it, perhaps a hack at at the Linux level? Have removed the word programatically from the question – Tom Jan 10 '14 at 14:11
  • OK, just wanted to make sure it's not an off-topic development question :) You might wish to take a look at these questions and their answers. With some luck they at least give you a pointer. Don't forget to keep us updated here :) – Izzy Jan 10 '14 at 14:19
