    Hi guys can any one suggest an OTG cable that can support charging of the android device at the same time? I looked through Amazon and seems like there are hit and misses, not a perfect one as to what I'm looking for.

    Example, I see cables that has 3 ports, 2.0 otg cable to attach to the device, female micro usb 2.0, female 2.0 usb (for attachment of the external device). Sometimes I see the female micro usb is for charging the EXTERNAL device and not the android device (external power for hdd) itself. Sometimes, I see that it only works for usb flash drives and not hard drives. The female micro usb 2.0 never supports a charging of the android device itself.

    Anyone uses an exact cable that I am referring to? Like connecting a full 2TB hard drive to an android phone/tablet to watch movies and charge at the same time?

    Thanks for all the help guys appreciate it.

    Saw a similar thread about this on XDA.

    Did you ever find an answer to this problem? I'm currently going through the same ordeal.

    Haven't found an on-the-go cable that will do the job by itself, but this looks like it could be a neat little workaround. Was suggested as a workaround in another thread with a similar question.


    Also check out this thread:

    I cant post links, but I'm referring to the DECEC cable.

    Does anyone know if I can charge and stream media at the same time? I'd like to use this on my note pro to watch a movie from my external hdd, and still have it charge at the same time. If not, do ANY of the cables work like that? I noticed this one has a switch, is there any that charge and work in OTG at the same time? Is there a cheap one like this that works like that. I noticed the first one is like fourty bucks.

    Is this compatible with the s6 edge plus?

    Thank you for any and all help!!

    Through a link in one of the links I previously mentioned I came across this:


    I have no personal knowledge of whether it really works, or of the reputation of the company. This is not a recommendation, just a suggestion for you to look at and evaluate yourself. But would be very interested in results if you do try it out, or if anybody else has tried it.
