drkastenbrot: Technically, the charger is communicating with the tablet. So, without little hacks, you can only use the original charger with any usb data cable. Most usb cables are data cables but some very cheap ones are charge only. As this thing needs quiet some power, I recommend using a thick quality usb cable (the 2.1A rated ones, or just the original one. 

biggtoggs12: if you use an adaptor with 5.1 volts and 2.1A amps output it will charge with any lead just fine.

Aadil AL qasem: how many charger you have homey

quietfart: Hi Mizuki Senpai, have you tried switching out the cable? I feel like those sometimes go bad for me and I have to replace them after using them for some time.

Mizuki Senpai: mine won't even charge using its own charger

GRINGO X: My Touchpad is charging right now with the USB cable that came with my Samsung GS3 phone and the official HP adapter.

E. Sanchez: Dummies video ever...she clearly lives alone 

Keyon Black (Keyon Black): it dose not work with other chargers because the wall adapter has to have 8v

udayhomeful: Short note: READ THE FINE PRINT (on the charger)
Long note: read the charger output on HP original charger and get replacement charger with similar output.

Kelli Allen: Where is located at

AverageJoProduction: Thank you so much for the video! I havent been able to use my touchpad for months because my cable broke. Thanks to you, I now know i only have to have the adapter!!!! Thanks!

hall pass: also I may add that it was done very unprofessional and boring.

hall pass: this was the most boring video of all times YouTube has to be great for the stuff that this woman think she knows what she's talking about but clearly doesn't.

that'll be all

Brittany K. Brown: cut the charging time by a third party charger nearly in half by putting the device on airplane mode while charging. cheers!

Laz911: Thanks for the video, wish I foudn it sooner.   I did a lot of research on this myself.  I found that the HP charager is a 10W, 2 Amp charger.  Most of the chargers I tried to replace it with were 5v, 1amps ones, and they only ghave me problems.  I found a charger that seems to work fine, it's a 5v, 2.1amp charger from a company called "Tech & Go".  I picked it up in Walgreens for $15.  Just be sure to make sure you get the 2.1 amp one, they have a 1 amp one for $10 that looks exaxtly like it. 

Alex Wharton: Its not burning them out, they are either breaking from you being rough with it or just because you are using low quality USB cables, the charger would not cause a loose connection, the USB cable that came with the HP TouchPad is terrible, as in it breaks really easily! I usually get them on ebay for a good price, search this on ebay "6ft USB 2.0 A Male to Micro-B 5pin Male Cable"

Alex Wharton: Until the battery dies, then you need the HP one again to get it to start charging again.

adallas181: freak you, jackass

andicustherobot: Jesus, this is a pain. Especially since the U in USB stands for Universal

di007001: Yes I found this to be true also, unfortunately, I lost my cord :(
