Default [Q] Charging from the computer/aftermarket wallcharger

Hi all, thanks for reading, appreciate in advance for the input.
So I bought my note pro in the manufacturer refurbished condition. The tablet is fine and nothing's wrong. However, I can't charge it from anything but the stock wall charger. It will not charge from the computer using any of the USB cables (3.0 and 2.0) or from an aftermarket wall charger. I wanna confirm if my tablet is defect or is a bug (feature?) of the note pro


Thanks

Not uncommon for computer USB ports to not charge it, the tablet requires higher current output. What's the rated output of the aftermarket chargers you're using?

I'm not sure, but that makes sense. I will double check tomorrow.

Many thanks

After further testing I can confirm that the output current has to be at least 2A for it to charge the tablet.

The only way for it to charge from a USBport is by turning it off completely. It does charge when it's on, but about 1-2% per hour.

It's normal, all newer, stronger devices require 2A or more for them to charge properly.

If you think that's bad, you should've seen the Asus T700T... It required 15 volt or it wouldn't charge at all, not even slowly.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
