[Q] Help: Fast charging a 5120
So, i have an Alienware laptop with 1300mA usb 3.0 ports and one heavy charge usb 2.0 2Amp charge-while-off port.
I also have a box PC with 1300mA '3x' usb ports for 'heavy charging', both usb 2.0 and 3.0
using the 'battery charging source and current' app for these readings.
My note 1 will happily pull 1300mA out of a wall charger, or any of the usb ports on any comp, and charges like lightning.
My note 8 however draws the usb max of 466mA on all ports, except the 2amp port. on that one it draws 1amp.
on a wall charger it draws nearly 1800mA.
Anyone know of an app that can just lie to this thing and say "Draw whatever is there" ?
I've seen a few posts about hacking cables, but i'm a bit leery of shorting cables that carry 2 amps.
i've seen similar posts about this stuff, but not for the note 8.
Any help, much appreciated.
