Default Car Charger

I've been using my G Pad with my old genuine Samsung Galaxy Tab car charger, but doesn't seem to be providing enough power to charge the device in use, it only slows the discharge rate.

Given that it charges the Samsung device fine with the same programs running (Tomtom & CamerAlert).

Any one got any recommendations on a car charger, or in a similar position?)

You need a 2.1 amp charger. Here is one that I use in my car. So far has worked great on all my devices.

The stock charger is 1.8 amperes, so any charger that can at least match that should work. I have a 2.1 ampere Capdase car charger originally meant for Galaxy tabs, but it works just fine with the gpad.

Turns out the issue was the cable rather than the charger. Using the original LG supplied cable and it charges fine.
