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…?April 23, 2016 at 9:57 am #34761
14? are you using the tablet while charging?
if you leave it alone it should take about 5 hours with a 2A charger.April 23, 2016 at 10:02 am #34763
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.April 23, 2016 at 10:12 am #34765
then i guess it’s a charger problem. are you using a quality charger?April 23, 2016 at 10:14 am #34766
I used 3 different ones…a samsung charger and 2 other ones. What charger are u using ?April 23, 2016 at 10:15 am #34768
And i used different cablesApril 23, 2016 at 10:50 am #34772
the tablet draws about 1.8A when chargingApril 23, 2016 at 12:58 pm #34783
Thnx for your reply.
Does you decice startup also when plugging in by the way ? Is that normalApril 23, 2016 at 2:15 pm #34789dlink377Participant

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.April 23, 2016 at 3:05 pm #34795
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 ?April 23, 2016 at 3:22 pm #34800
i use galaxy s4 cable and it charges fine.
anyway, yes, it does power on when you connect it to the chargerApril 23, 2016 at 3:27 pm #34802

Which app do u use to test the charge amount ?April 25, 2016 at 5:15 pm #35024dlink377Participant

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?April 27, 2016 at 7:43 pm #35295
mine has about 5.25v and the tablet sucks about 1.8A out of it
