GRINGO X: My Touchpad is charging right now with the USB cable that came with my
Samsung GS3 phone and the official HP adapter.
Keyon Black: it dose not work with other chargers because the wall adapter has to have
E. Sanchez: Dummies video ever...she clearly lives alone
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!
Kelli Allen: Where is located at
JD L: ok you have a hot voice!
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.
hall pass: also I may add that it was done very unprofessional and boring.
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!
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
that'll be all
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.
Rohit Saini: @RavCrossfire How do I reflash, it's dead and NOW I CAN'T DO ANYTHING BUT
SEE THE CHARGING SYMBOL, and TELLING ME TO PLUG IT IN, I DO AND NOTHING
HAPPENS. sorry for caps LOL but plzz help and reply! thanks :)
cushe83: Okay so i have an LG USB cord worth the original HP barrel. Unfortunately
my hp died completely down out if power can i get it back to life with this
cord ? I've been reading you can't
cynaug: I found an HP charger on amazon.com........I just ordered it so I will be
back to commet on if it works. Does anyone know if plugging it into a
computer will charge it? \
jleonard711: It has NOTHING to do with the cable, it has ONLY to do with the mA output
of the charging adapter. The adapter that comes with the Touchpad is 2000mA
(2.0A), so it's no wonder that the chargers used in this video which are
all <700mA (0.7A) won't work because they aren't supplying enough power. I
have successfully charged my TouchPad with as little as 850mA (0.85A), but
2000mA will give you the fastest charging time.
Yza CL: THANKS SO MUCHHHHH... coz of you mine works now... had a little problem
with the charging....
SolidusSnake604: my HP AC/USB adapter says 5.3 V @ 2A
raphz1428: Let me make this as simple as possible. It is not the usb cable that
matters it is actually the USB adaptor that connects to the wall. The
charger needs to be 2 amps for it to work. If you have any USB power source
with an output of 2 amps it will charge.
cynaug: I've tried the Rocket Fish brand power cord its 5V...not charging, still
neswiz17: how do u unlock a hp touchpad
nibblesdotbas: (Perhaps I should say, "USB 2.0 devices are supposed to draw no more than
500mA ***from the USB interface***" -- separate power supplies are
explicitly permitted by the spec.)
T0YODA: I just want to say THANK YOU! I recently received my HP Touchpad from Woot.
It came fully charged but the charger would not work for the life of me...I
spent hours messing around with it. At one point it did charge, but when I
came back it wasn't. It is definitely a bad USB cable. I have the same
exact LG charger...I did what you did attaching the LG cable to the HP
barrel.....and finally charges!!! Thanks so much, I can finally sleep and
feel good about my purchase again.
Ken, Mirjana & Kim PILLIG: I changed my TP to Android, now all of my micro-USB chargers work; Galaxy
S2, Plantronics Bluetooth etc.
nibblesdotbas: Yes, I understand that, so you can calm down. The official USB
specifications cover more than just cable characteristics -- they cover
devices and their interfaces as well. USB 2.0 devices are supposed to draw
no more than 500mA. Any current requirement above that goes beyond the
standard. (USB 2.0 Spec., section 7.2.1) Given that these are YouTube
comments, perhaps this is an unrealistic request, but please do make an
effort to properly understand comments before going ballistic in response.
Alex Wharton: Until the battery dies, then you need the HP one again to get it to start
dp1582: Could you tell me the model number of the working chargers? thanks
quietfart: @hacks4iphone According to Apple's website, yes, the iPad charger is a 10W
USB Power Adapter, just like the HP Touchpad's. Thanks for the comment!
adam conti: thats cuz the voltage is not high enough, ipad charger should work!
Russell Matthews: tried a bunch of different micro usb cables and found that the only one
that would charge it from completely dead was a usb cable from an old
blackberry(using the hp adapter).I notice that if on the bottom of the
Micro usb end it only has 2 contact points it will work. If it has 3 points
it will not charge from completely dead
Roxanna Natasha: l know this is an old video but l just got an android hp touchpad @ a
garage sale for $5. & it works perfectly! But l don't have the usb that
goes w/ the hp & computer. l want to plug it into the computer & the wall.
Wat voltage does the touchpad charger have? & how do l connect it to the
internet? l saw the cords on amazon too but the cord dozn't look like it
wuld fit. lt looks too small & not flat or wide enuf. [amazon has sum
supplies back by the way] Sorry about my long random reply.
fireball74: I've had Android installed on my TP for a long time. I have yet to have a
non-HP charger work correctly. It shows the charging indicator, but never
really charges. This is due to non-standard hardware pin-outs in the
HP/Palm charging system, not software. I'd like to try a Palm Pre charger,
but I'm not sure I want to spend the money just to have it not work.
Liquid Egg Product: Would have been much better if you were demonstrating this in a bikini.
EidolWays: A quick clarification. USB voltage is standardized by industry
specification at 5 Volts. So it's the amperage that varies between
chargers. I'm currently charging my Touchpad with a generic RadioShack 2.1
Amp (that's 10.2-Watt) charger, and it complains. But it IS charging!
kisamesama2k: i often use my htc desire's micro usb charger to charge my touchpad and it
works fine but one question: is there a possibility of damaging the device
when using third party chargers like the htc's charger??
Ashthang1: Thank you for your trials!!. I could charge my touch pad finally!!
cynaug: ok, I ordered an adapter off of Amazon. It is the OEM adapter and usb cord
for the touchad, and it is working!! It's called Nothern America
HP......hurry! as of 3 days ago there were only 10 left!! Good Luck.
(Todays date is 3/26/12)
nibblesdotbas: And to think... USB was supposed to standardize matters. =P
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"
Sean DeMarco: actually the cable does matter in that HP kept providing faulty cords for
this device and so if your HP Touchpad can't charge I recommend of course
asking them to send a new one but really I would just use another
TheNickafresh: what other cords work to charge HP tablet?!
di007001: Yes I found this to be true also, unfortunately, I lost my cord :(
ChrisDalyn J Michael: Use a blackberry charger, although you wont find the lightning symbol to
ensure its charging it actually charges! 100% guarantee, I use that for my
touchpad. PS: A notification might pop up saying that you should use the Hp
adapter but just ignore it and you should be fine!
Ravishankar Krishnamoorthy: My hp charger got faulty apple iphone charger of 5v 1a does not work but
samsung mobile charger 5v 0.7 a surprisingly charges it but at a very slow
pace and only when touchpad is on else if touchpad is off you get the msg
Rohit Saini: I installed custom firmware CM9, it doesn't charge now, still wont with
RavCrossfire: @DisneyWatcherXD Reflash and see if it solves the problem
RavCrossfire: @DisneyWatcherXD I'll be honest and say I don't own an HP Touchpad but will
get it by next week. But from flashing over a dozen + phones you should be
able to get the tablet into the bootloader (usually for a phone this is
holding the down volume button and powering on the device). You should be
able to charge it while it's in that state
ahammer68: My DROID pro phone usb cable charges my son's HP Tablet. Just plugged it in
to adapter and it works great.
as128: I find that the original charger keeps burning-out micro-USB cables like
crazy. I have no idea why. It's always the same pattern: works at first,
then stops working unless you tilt the cable up during charging, then stops
working completely. But if I use a new cable then it works again with no
quietfart: @LiquidEggProduct Oh, but I *was*. Or, at least, I could've been, and no
one would've been the wiser. :)
Rohit Saini: @RavCrossfire Thanks Rav!!! Umm but when I plug the wire from usb to hp
touch pad, nothing happens, if I use Jabra one it says to use the one that
came with hp touchpad. Now I think it's either my tablets bricked :'( and I
will need help :'( or the wire is ruined and need to get a new one. :P
