Ok... So I am confused as to what HDMI adapter to get. I just want the thing to charge while plugged into the TV.

Is MHL have to be supported by the TV too? I don't care if I have to use another cable to charge. I got this one, HDMI works but doesn't charge. Shows a red x on the battery icon.

Can anyone confirm that this one does indeed charge?

On all of these to get the device to charge, you must hook up your USB charger to the USB port on the MHL adapter.
The HDMI cable/port does not provide power to charge your tablet.

This one should work. Make sure to buy from Amazon and not a reseller so that you are more likely to get a genuine adapter.

From what I read, the red X on the battery icon means it is getting a charge but not at full speed.

I got the same with a powered USB hub. So whether you charge up or remain at what you at, depends a bit on how much you need, and how much trickles in.

Whether it's good for a battery the get a small charge and remain level or even loose charge is an other matter.

Well, I bought a MHL adapter by Samsung, and while the tablet seems to confirm that the adapter works, I never got to duplicate the screen at my TV... I have no idea what's the problem...

Buy an HDMI MHL adapater and make sure it's one that comes with the usb wall charger and is 3 wires running all into one unit. Should charge without a problem. You don't have to buy expensive ones just make sure any cheap solutions are at least decent material.
