I have resorted to charging via microusb but found even that isn't too fast.. 28% per hour for about 4 hour charge from an Anker 40w 5 port dedicated USB charger.
I neglected to charge my ZU for 30 minutes prior to turning it on was this instruction something I seriously shouldn't have overlooked?
I am hoping this is user error and not a defective ZU... Please reply if you have any helpful insight or info.
Use these cheep chargers with caution, there have been at lest 3 that I've seen on forum that have killed their ZU with them.
The ZU will only draw 500mA on usb even on usb3 or the charging port on my laptop, not sure what that can handle but the ZU still only draws 500mA
Connected to a wall charger of at least 1500mA my ZU will charge in about 2.5 hours
