Charging with extension
I had a USB extension cable that worked with my Asus Slider. When I use it with the Galaxy 10.1 it shows charging. If it's turned off, the tablet charges fine. However, if I'm using the tablet while it's charging, the battery actually loses its charge - even though the charging icon shows. Anyone else have this issue / is there a fix? The standard cable is so short it only can be used when the tablet is off.

Re: Charging with extension
I think this is related to how much current the cable will carry.
Tablet chargers are typically 2 Amps. A lower current will charge it but more slowly. This is probably why you're still discharging while plugged in.
I use a standard $1 extension cord and plug the charger and the short cable into that.
