• Well, FWIIW, I ended up ordering the Chuwi Ubook. About $250 for the Atom 8/256GB isn’t bad.  The pen is N-trig type I understand which isn’t perfect but should work well enough. Let’s see how this works out, it’s on the way right now from Banggood.

  • Yeah, thanks! Many of the larger power banks (20Ah) seem to support >30W out over USB-PD which should definitely work great. I just didn’t want a huge brick to carry with me, the smaller ones are just about small enough that I can carry them in the bag or even in the pocket if I think I’ll need it.


    Here’s a test I just ran.

  • The update is that the original Forsee SSD died and I forgot about it for a while 🙂

    But I now tried charging it from 58% with no overclocking and even locked it down to 400Mhz but it still won’t charge. As riceart said, it’s probably just not enough and you need 15V @2A or something. But it does extend the battery life significantly so I’m not…[Read more]

    You might be able to find a replacement keyboard on Ebay but I haven’t seen anything. A simple USB/bluetooth keyboard could be a cheap temporary…[Read more]

  • So you’re like 50% correct. I decided to give it a try anyway when it was on sale on Amazon cheaper than from China.

    While it does not the tablet, it is detected properly when I plug it in and it does keep the tablet from discharging. Which is really good enough for me, since all I wanted was to extend the battery life. Also this is at maximum…[Read more]

  • Probably way too late but this sounds like the typical symptoms of an over-discharged battery where the circuit will refuse to charge it:

    The fix is to charge it manually a little bit with a power supply (or replace it, obviously). Could be something else too but this seems to be the most typical issue.
