Not Charging when turned on

Postby jeffrey700 » November 18th, 2016, 2:43 pm

I have a Linx 8 that I got as a swap over unit from Exertis as my Linx 7 had broken. The problem I am having now that I have upgraded to Windows 10 is that the tablet will not charge while the tablet is turned on. I have tried it on a few different chargers but makes no difference. Has anyone out there got any ideas on a way to fix this as I'm sure its got to be a software issue.

For a successful rate of charging while the L8 is on and being used you need a charger with an 2.0Amp output at least. If you've been using chargers with less then at best they will only tickle Charge the device while it is turned off.

All of my chargers have a 2.1A and charge without issue.

My phone has a bloody fast charge plug and that's over 2.0 amps and that don't even help it. I think they have to be off all together to even charge.

I always turn my stuff off for charging. Whats the point in it being on and it charges quicker. Only thing I leave on is my S5 Phone, as that will charge from 5% to 100% in 30mins.

The tablet charges whilst being plugged in and in use?

It should do, yes. Mine certainly does.
There have been some fairly long threads about enabling 'full' charging whilst using the usb port.
By default I think they'll only accept 500mA if you have stuff plugged in the usb port - not enough to keep it topped up but not entirely useless.
