    Lost my charger - what to do? Alternatives? Purchase new?

    Hey all,

    I lost my charger in some hotel somewhere in the world while I was traveling. Does anyone know if I can buy a charger stand alone for the TF? Or can I charge in a different way? I tried to put USB to the Laptop but it doesnt seem to start charging. I have like 8 hours left and I really would love to find a solution to this.

    PS. I am in the UK

    You can buy them from the Asus UK shop. But you won't get one before the battery expires.

    It will charge slowly from USB, if you switch it off altogether.

    Whereabouts are you? If you're close enough you can borrow my spare.

    I have to turn off the TF completely in order to USB charge it? That seems a bit overkill, since a phone can easily charge while still on.

    I am in south England :/

    Next time you travel ask the reception/front desk if some one has left a charger behind.

    You will be amazed how many people do!!!!!

    Usb 3.0

    TF use a USB 3.0 cable and the changer's voltage is different. Using a standard usb charger won't even show on the tab but will trickle the battery IE: and 8hrs charging time will give you about 20% (50 to 70%).

    You do not have to turn the TF off, just turn the screen off. If you have access to an iPad charger (5VDC 2A) this will cut your charging time dramatically, but the screen will still need to be off.
