Default Problems with N7 official charger

My USB cable for my N7 is broken so I'm using the cable that came with my s4. Whenever I use my asus wall plug in charger with the s4 cable it doesnt work at all! 3 hours and I only get 7 percent charge, but if I use this setup to charge my lumia 520 it works perfectly.

Is my charger busted or is this a compatibility issue between the charger, cable and device?

I used a microusb cable that came from a blackberry phone, and I still manage to charge my tablet somewhat rapidly. See if the problem persists with different outlets (although you did mention that the same setup worked with the lumia). See if you can also use the S4 USB cable to connect the nexus 7 to your computer (and if the computer charges it faster than the wall outlet- usually outlet should be faster).

Hope this helps.

I just tried charging my Nexus 7 with an LG Optimus black USB cable and the Asus wall charger and it charges like 10-15% per hour, but with the original cable it's as fast as always, so I guess it's a cable problem. Try using another instead

That Asus wall charger is perplexing indeed. My nexus 7 charges insanely fast with my note 3 charger and s4 cable.

N7 from 1st gen is certanly better charger, it's 5v@2a=10w where is N7 2nd gen is only 5.2@1.35=7W

I charge my N7 2013 with my original S4 charger and cable. Works just fine.
