Re: cannot charge my hp touchpad

HP Recommended
Have you tried replacing the USB cable that connects the power adapter to the HP TouchPad? That's the most common issue I've seen when it no longer charges the device.

Can you tell if the connector on the HP TouchPad is loose or damaged?

Just an FYI about charging a touchpad - the device requires a charger that can output 2A (2,000 mA).

 

Normal cell phone chargers cannot provide enough "juice".  As Kalt mentioned, the USB cable itself seems to be the weak link.  I received a dead one right out of the box!  😕

 

Switching it out for another micro-USB cable, but using the original charging transformer solved my problem.

Mine died after about a month of use.  Again, replacing the micro-USB cable resolved the problem.  😛
