[Q] Car Charging While Using
Something I noticed while in my car this weekend for a trip.
I connected my Tab to my phone via wi-fi for internet. It was the first opportunity I got to use the Navigation on the Tab so I gave it a whirl. About halfway through my trip I decided I'd try charging it while running. The charger I have is a Verizon one, has a cable for my cellphone coming out if it, but it also has a USB "port" for charging other USB devices. When I plugged in the Tab, kies came up and it had a charging symbol on the battery. I didn't want kies running and I backed out of it and fired up Navigation again. However, as soon as I exited kies it would not charge. Is it normal for the Tab to only charge while kies is running and it thinks it is in a USB port? I haven't tried it on a real computer USB port to see if it happens there.
Edit, just found this post re: USB on a computer, same thing I experienced in my car, I think:
