    Charging via usb/pc

    Hi:

    Wanna know if i have an issue here?
    If you have the transformer connected to your pc via the usb cable, is your pc then supposed to charge the transformer for you?
    If so, it is not working for me. Of course i can charge via a wall socket.
    But when the usb is plugged into the pc into the pad it does not charge.

    If it is supposed to charge can anyone tell me or help me as to what the problem maybe and how it can be resolved.

    Thanks so much

    No, it isn't supposed to charge. There isn't enough voltage coming from a USB port, only 5v and the TF optimally needs 15. It may maintain the TF a little longer and if it's turned off it will charge it but so slowly you may not notice.

    As leeshor pointed out, the USB won't trigger the charging indicator. The wall adapter outputs 15 VDC @ 1.2 Amps to charge. A USB on a computer outputs 5 VDC @ 0.5 Amps. Wall charger will charge the tablet about 33% per hour with the screen off, a USB port will charge about 3% per hour with the screen off.
