    power source and cable

    This is my last complaint. The power adapter is really of lower quality than the rest of the kit. The cable and connector to the machine also seems to be completely bespoke to the device. When I plug the cable into another usb adapter, the device does not recognise it, although it actually charges. Moreover, there is only one power source supplied, even when I bought the docking station separately and even though it is possible to charge both tablet and docking station separately. Finally, I can't find a way to buy an additional power source or extra usb-connector cables. Surely, asus can get its act together to do better on this?

    The reason that other USB devices do not charge it properly is because the TF power supply outputs 15 VDC at 1.2 Amps if the TF is detected. A standard USB is 5VDC at 0.5 Amps. The USB port does not trigger a charge indicator as the device needs 11 VDC to believe it is being charged.

    The cable is quite short, if you want it longer you can get a USB 3.0 Extension cable and it will work.

    For a replacement, check online at excalibur-pc.com and also Office Depot in the US has them in stock and online.
