Hi all,

I've recently purchased a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1... But the charger that came with it, is ridiculous! - major design flaw!

The USB wire is inserted to the RIGHT side of the charger leaving minimal capacity for another adapter to be inserted in the wall socket/travel adapter. It's possible to charge your tablet and have another charger (on the right side) in the wall socket but not without damaging your own USB wire in the long run!

Apologies for the unclear image, but you see what I mean.

Welcome to Android Central! That's pretty annoying. The problem with charging plugs is that no matter how they're designed, there is often a power strip where they don't fit quite well with other plugs. You can get some clever power strips that have rotating plugs, like this one: 360 Electrical PowerCurve 6-Outlet Surge Protector - Rakuten.com

I realize that this one isn't the right one for your country, but you get the idea.

Might seem silly , but why not plug the Samsung charger where the black charger is and put the black charger where the Samsung one is? I agree about the outlets. You can find some that are wide, with 3 or 4 sockets on each side, and spaced far enough apart so you can plug the charger in either direction.

Engineers now are all idiots. Designing without thinking. Assholes... Some reply is just move the Samsung adaptor to the other side where nothing is in the way.. Well that not the point... what if you have two samsung device. F***ing engineers.
