How to Charge your Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 with a standard USB port!

by admin on September 8, 2011


One of the most frustrating things about getting a new gadget is all the chargers or adapters you have to purchase to charge your devices.  I didn’t want to purchase a separate car charger for my Galaxy Tab 10.1 and I wanted to charge the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from my computer in the office and not purchase another charger for it.  Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy tab will not charge from a standard computer USB port.  Nor will it charge from your cars lighter when you use a USB power adapter.

This adapter will allow you to charge and sync your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1  for around $4.00 dollars.  I like the fact that the adapter is also an extension cable.   As a technology enthusiast, I have had my share of negative experiences where adapters have damaged the usb port. That is why I choose an extension adapter instead of simple adapter version.   With a simple flick of a switch I can go from charging to data transfer and back.
