    Charging TF201 without ASUS charger

    Hi,

    I tried to use a BlackFox Powerbomb 10000 for charging the TF201 with no success. This really surprises me since plugging it onto my PC works...well, ca not test it since I am on the road at the moment, manual says it works.
    Powerbomb supports 5,9 and 12 Volts. But I am not able to charge at all.

    Powerbomb works in case you ask, I can charge my phones.

    Cheers,
    Christoph

    Christoph, here's the deal. The Transformer require 15v to charge. You may see some charging going on at 12v with your TF off but it would be like watching a snail get out of your way.

    In order to get the Eee Pad's to show they are charging, the output must be between 12 and 18 VDC. Standard USB voltage is 5 VDC. Most chargers that have USB will default to 5 VDC via USB just to protect any USB devices since 99% of devices that use USB to charge are at 5 VDC.

    You will probably have to make a custom charger tip like this one that someone made for the Energi To Go: http://www.transformerforums.com/for...h-user-go.html

    Using the default USB tips will not work.

    Actually, it charges normally at 12VDC. Maybe just a touch slower, but maybe 25-30% per hour instead of 35% per hour.

    Ok, thanks for the responses. The powerbomd can do the 12Volt, however, it is not charging when the pad is on. It charges when it is off though....

    It's possible the charger wants to autodetect which voltage to use and it's confused by the circuits in the TF. Sorry it isn't working.
