    ok i have one of the ones with a micro usb wire leading to a lil box with HDMI out and micro usb in for charging.
    id assumed it was just so that you could charge while usin HDMI but my battery SLOWLY drops.
    is there a good tech reason why the adaptor requires power supply?
    do phone USB not have a power output?

    Heh heh, actually, I never saw your first post...
    I don't think that the adapter itself requires power, but just the fact that you're using the adapter implies that your phone is going to be under a heavy load (watching movies; playing games; etc) so that it's going to be taking a hit on battery life. Keeping the charger plugged in helps to ensure that your porn (uh, I mean, History Channel series about the rise of Scotland) doesn't end abruptly or that the phone isn't dead when you unplug the adapter.

    lmao right just wish it broke even instead of dropping 1% every 10mins for my "extended documentaries lol.
    strange thing is, the unit doesnt work without charger even when phones tanked up
    pity i cant turn screen off... i set it at min brightness n it doesnt affect output
