Fordex Group Micro USB Host OTG Cable with Micro USB Power for Nexus 7 Galaxy S III & Galaxy Nexus
(Fordex Group seems to be a fake company, they just get these cables off chinese manufactorers, and the quality seems to be the same of the Amazon/Ebay counterparts, excepts the shipping is local to the USA, and faster, and the cables seem to work ok, and also ok quality)
Anker® Astro 3E 10000mAh Dual USB Backup External Battery Pack Portable Power Pack Charger for most Smartphones, Tablets and other USB-charged devices
Probably overkill. This thing is heavy and big (5.6 x 2.8 x 0.6 inches ; 8.6 ounces), but for any tablet, I need at least 2.1A output (this one does 3Amps)

Meenova MicroSDHC Adapter for Nexus devices in mind
So, I have tried both ElementalX, and the Glitch kernel with stock based ROMS (CleanROM right now), and it's sweet. I am able to give power to the 1TB HDD, and also the tablet at the same time, and read/write to the external HDD to watch movies, and move files using Stickmount Pro + ES Explorer, or Nexus MediaImporter with a prettier UI (bought both just to support) using the Glitch Kernel, and that Y OTG cable.
I can also disable charge mode, and connect the 1TB directly to the tablet to read/write, however, using the tablet to power the 1TB HDD is not good, it's awesome for the small Meenova tiny adapter, but not for the 1TB HDD (slow dowsn, gets too hot, and drains fast).
I can also use the Meenova MicroSDHC reader with the same Y OTG , using a MicroUSB to USB adapter that came with the Meenova adapter (because it has a MicroUSB plug that should go DIRECTLY into the tablet)
My problem is that I wish to do both; charge, and power both, tablet and 1TB at the same time with the Y OTG cable, BUT, also be able to plug the Meenova adapter directly to the tablet without having to use the Y OTG cable, and charger, which I can't.
The option enabled on the glitch kernel to allow me to charge, and OTG at the same times is this:
"Enable USB+OTG Charge mode
Allows charging in USB host mode (disables self-powered OTG)"
"(disables self-powered OTG)" I guess this is what doesn't let me plug, and use the Meenova directly into the tablet without a power source
Does anyone know if there is a way to be able to do both?
