Android phone/tablet OTG + charge simultaneously?? HELP special cable?

12
Found 17th Dec 2015
as title really, I've got a few devices that charge through the micro USB port, but I occasionally use keyboards etc, is there a cable that will allow for the use of a keyboard, mouse or USB drive AT THE SAME TIME AS CHARGING IT?

any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Bush elma 8" tablet from argos is one of them

Or would a bluetooth keyboard be a better option?

If you can get a standard usb charger (or converter), from the description it should work. However, you're probably better off just getting a bluetooth keyboard...

I never managed to find one to use with my linx tablet. I have one with a switch so you can leave it plugged into everything and just switch between charge and USB input. It's not ideal.
Now I generally just use a Bluetooth keyboard and a microsd card/microserver for storage.

OTG hub with charging



i saw that one but with the switch it suggests that it's either usb devices / or charging.. Is this feature DEVICE specific?

It depends on your device not the cable, just order a £1 otg y cable and try it, some support it, some don't.

The trick to those otg hub is to find the right switch position and have the power plugged into it and a USB device when booting the device. That triggers it to allow charging and data. once I learned that I can now charge and use multiple USB devices at once on both android and windows tablet/ phone
