Hello everyone !

I would like to know if it's possible to use OTG and to charge the phone AT THE SAME TIME ?

Maybe with a specific cable, or a docking station ?

Thanks for the answer.
Do you use it "a lot" ? No problem with that (no disconnection, etc.) ?

Been using it regularly but not with a dock or magnetic charging cable.. using it on an external battery pack that connects on the same dock port so it is still the same.
I can safely say that it does not give any problems with OTG at the same time..

It is possible to charge via an OTG cable, but the cable have provision for this thing exactly. There are guides on the internet, google it, i'm sure you will find what you are looking for
