Did this video help you?

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

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 

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!

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!

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.

JD L: ok you have a hot voice!

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

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: 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

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 trying cords....

J053P3R32: none will work i can of told you that they only accept a speacil voltage and the adaptor thats supposed to charge it is the only one i think the palm one will work with it

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 charging again.

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 manufacturer's cable

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 Jabra one.

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 tilting. Grrrr.

quietfart: @LiquidEggProduct Oh, but I *was*. Or, at least, I could've been, and no one would've been the wiser. :)
