Battery running out playing videos

Battery running out playing videos

Postby symbiosis » June 4th, 2015, 11:39 am

Hi all

My battery is running out when playing videos out via HDMI from the SD card - even though its plugged into the mains charger

Anyone else experiencing this - any fixes?

Cheers

Are you using the charger and the cable that shipped with the tablet? I've found that is the ONLY charger and cable combination that will let me use and charge at the same time.
I also have a Bay Trail based mini-pc and it's the same scenario - only the linx charger will power it properly.

Hm, no I wasnt. I bought this high powered usb mains charger thinking that would be better http://www.amazon.co.uk/iLuv-Triple-Cha ... d_sxp_f_pt

What rating is the supplied unit?

5v 2A. I've got plenty of those rated chargers too, but it only works well with the charger AND cable it came with.

That said, I've yet to try my cable from my Nexus 6 (which should be rated to carry quite a lot of power).
