    Hi there

    I have a Cube iworks 10 flagship dual os.

    It takes 14 hours to charge the thing. How can i charge it more quick. I use a 2.1 A ,5.25 V charger through the micro usb port.

     

    How long does it take you guys and what chargers do you use…?

    14? are you using the tablet while charging?

    if you leave it alone it should take about 5 hours with a 2A charger.

    No i am not using it. It automatically starts up when i plug it in. I let it boot into android and leave it alone.

    For my case I must boot either Windows or Android (Windows is a bit faster), connect the charger, and let it sleep.

    You should use high quality charger and cable. I used a cheap cable and it is only charging 0.5A, using charger and cable that comes with my Xiaomi it charges at 2.25A.

    It seems my tablet never start when plugged in, but it is quite a bit time since I connect it from cold, I might be forget.

    Thnx for reply.

    The cable i use is the stock one from my samsung device. I tried several ampere apps to measure. .none of them show charging above 1000 mah in spite of that the charger is 2000mah. So i think i have to get a decent cable.

     

    How do i know i buy a decent cable ?

    i use galaxy s4 cable and it charges fine.

    anyway, yes, it does power on when you connect it to the charger

    I use this small hardware USB power meter:

    I have noticed that charging current is propably dependant from supplied voltage. When I use the same USB cable but with two different charger I get less power through with one which has higher max amperage. I was baffled by that result till I noticed that smaller USB charger supply a little higher voltage (5.1V) than bigger charger which at 0.6A has output voltage as low as 4.95V. Even if it isn’t drastic difference it looks like that long cable with thin wires or low supply voltage is primary suspect for long charging times.

    Can anyone possessing USB multimeter answer me what voltage theirs charger is achieving at what amperage?
