    I have an Android 4 tablet which I am connecting to a USB printer using the micro-USB port. The comms are OK, but I need to charge the tablet at the same time.

    Can this be done with a Y-cable?

    So, I need to apply an external USB power charger to the Y to charge the tablet, but also allow the other side of the Y to connect to a USB printer for comms from the tablet too.

    Any experiences would be very interesting. I can build my own cables too.

    Any reason you can't use Google Cloud Print?

    You can buy an USB head with two or three USB slots, so you put that USB slot in your tablet and in that USB you can put your printer and your USB charger too.
