    Question Pogo Charger + OTG with Nexus 10

    I'm wondering if any one can tell me if I get a Pogo Charger. Then have a USB keyboard plug in to the OTG cable, will the Nexus 10 still charge or will the OTG stop the charging.

    There's a topic in here about the POGO charger, with links to buy one from Amazon. Also if you're charging with it it should still charge your tablet while you have the keyboard plugged in.

    Yeah I saw the post on the pogo plugs, but I didn't see anything about the pogo + otg / the device charging. I'm just worried on getting the nexus then finding out it does work in the end.

    So, you *CAN* charge via POGO connection and use an OTG device at the same time.

    To make it happen, you need:
    - A POGO power cable
    - An OTG Y-cable with power (This is important! A regular OTG cable will not work. It has to be a Y-cable.)
    - Two USB power sources (e.g. two power adapters).

    Plug all of that in. The OTG Y-cable will supply power to your USB device. The POGO pins will power your Nexus. Your battery charge will gradually increase as you use it.

    Tested with a Nexus 10 at full brightness, running an app that disabled sleep, and with wifi off. With a 2A charger, it gains about 4% battery power per hour.
