    Default Re: Pogo Charger arrived today

    Hi guys,

    I know this is an old thread, but I hope someone can help.

    I have had a pogo charger for a few months now and has been working great. But recently I have had a problem.

    My dear wife is an advocate of leaving cables, and just about anything else, on the floor when she has finished with them. A few days I went to charge my nexus 10 and found that the pogo wasn't fitting snuggle. I pulled it off to have a look and noted that one of the magnets had picked up an old staple. I didn't notice at the time whether it had shorted across any of the pins, but since then i cant charge with the pogo.
    The nexus 10 will recognise the cable and say that it is charging, but will continue to discharge.

    Charging by usb still works fine.

    Is it likely that the pogo id knackered, or it has caused damage tot he tablet itself?

    Have you tried plug the pogo cable into another charger. It would seem that it would be more like for the charger to fail than the cable itself.

    Maybe your battery is starting to fail and it has nothing to do with the pogo cable.

    The charger itself is fine, still works fine with usb charging. Actually I hadn't thought of that, with the charger still working the pogo is essentially just a length of cable with a fancy plug. So if the charger is still working, it must be an issue with the nexus.

    Is that a common issue on these? It's approaching a year old now.
    It does take a long time to charge and seems to chew through the battery quite quickly, even when left on standby. But To be honest I don't remember it ever being much better.

    Since you don't know how long the battery sat in a parts bin, it's probably the battery. I was having the same problem. Replaced the battery with the Amazon replacement kit, and now all is good.

    Extremely interesting and informative. I am going to purchase one right after I write this. The information about the voltages is wonderful and I always wondered why the chargers said 2 AMP but the REAL 2 AMP chargers are so much larger. I have a a 2 AMP but like you said it has 2 USB ports 1 amp each and always wondered why it would charge my NEX 10 for crap . Thank you so much for the insite.
    Cheers,
    Dave
