Default [Q] New Note 8 not charging via PC USB

Hi Guys,

I'm just wondering if my unit is defective or it's really the case for Galaxy Note 8's. My tablet charges just fine when using the wall charger, but when I connect it to my PC, it won't charge at all. I've tried different cables that I use for my phone and other gadgets, but none of them will work.

Is there a way for me to make it charge via USB?

Mine also says not charging when its plugged to the PC, its because the USB ports supposedly don't give enought current to charge the tablet, but i once left it connected overnight while transfering my MP3 collection and in the morning the tablet was 100% charged, so i think even if it says is not charging, it charges but ultra slow, even slower than a cell phone.

USB ports on a PC does not put out enough voltage to charge the tab. Like said above, if it does, it will take forever. Look on the back of your wall charger. It should say 10v. USB ports typically put out only 5v. If you look on the back of a phone charger, it should be 5v.

It's not the volts, it's the amps. Your charger provides 2A. A typical USB port provides 0.5A. But in any case, you'll not be able to charge this device from a computer USB port. It's not a fault in the device.

Hmmm... I alway charge my note 8.0 thru my pc usb.
It charges on my pc and lap top.
If you want to be sure just let is sit for an hour and see if the % went up.
Doesnt charge fast but charges in an evening from 60 to 100%

Perhaps it doesn't charge while the screen is on, because the power drain exceeds the charge rate? There would be no way to see it change to "charging" because the screen must be off for that to happen... Just some speculation
