Default Re: Magnetic POGO Cable

can anyone explain how a cable is able to produce more power and charge faster? don't know the amps off hand, but how could a cable change 2.5 input to more output.

It's not that it produces more that port itself allows more amps to be taken in. The usb port circuit limits itself.... Guessing the pogo has a higher limit than the usb port.

That makes more sense, so it's the ports on the tablet that controls/throttles input.

To anyone on the fence about getting this cable, it's awesome, simply put. It connects so easily and "grabs" itself into the connector, no more struggling with the mini USB again. Get it, you won't regret it!

I have also found that with just the USB cable, if I'm plugged in while using the tablet the charge tends to build very slowly, but with the Pogo connector, the battery charge builds nicely even while I'm using the Nexus 10. Very nice.

I'm with this guy. Never have to fiddle with or risk damaging your USB port again.

Agree...I still use USB occasionally, but only when I need the connection to be more robust than the magnetic connection, as the latter can pull off pretty easily if you're moving around and not paying attention.

The Pogo connector is quite nice, charges faster, spares wear and tear on your USB port, and becomes second nature to pop onto the N10 after just a few times using it. Excellent.

Just got this. Only complaint is that I can't charge while using my case as a stand. Still nice, though.
