Lenovo Smart Tab M10 - Power and data via USB-C

2019-09-04, 18:32 PM

I am attempting to utilize a M10 Smart Tablet to be used with a USB scanner. The scanner does work, but there's only one USB-C port.

 

Does the M10 have the capability to transmit data and power via the USB-C port simultaneously? What type of splitter/Hub would that require?

 

Thanks.

Hey,

 

Yes, you can charge and transfer data to different devices using a hub.  You can google for any USB TYPE C HUBS. You can see the below example.

Hi TDK1701. I don't have a solution for your charging issue but may I ask what model USB-C hub you are using? I just need USB-A ports, no charging. I have tried a QGeeM and researched a UGreen, and both are incompatible with the M10 FHD Plus that I have. Very hard to tell from ads which USB-C hubs will be compatible. Thanks!

Hello,

 

We have the same issue and need it solved in one way or another.

 

Our manufacturing unit have purchased and need to use Lenovo Tab M10 (TB-X605F) at every production unit (machine).

The tablets are mounted static with charger connected at the machines and we need to add an RFID reader and/or bar code scanner also connected via USB-C port.

The added external devices function just like any other external keyboard.

 

So far we have had no luck finding a solution how to use the external device and charger simultaneously and we are really desperate to find it.

 

We have already tried some hubs listed here below for USB-C port sharing, but only charging or data will work and not both in the same time.

 

The tested hubs so far are:

CableExpert Multiport Adapter (part number A-CM-HDMIF-02-SV)

Sandberg USB-C to 3 x USB 3.0 Converter (part number 136-03)

Hama 4-in-1 USB-C Multiport Adapter (part number 00135729)

And some more chinese alternatives, which are no worth listing here.

 

The smart docks that came along with the tablets from Lenovo is using completely other connectors for charging on the side of the tablet.

Could there be a way to have similar charger, but in some more "portable" form available?

 

Can Lenovo or someone else help us to find a working solution, because there surely must be a way to use these tablets with parallel charging and usb-c data connection?


Solution very much needed indeed!

 

Thank you very much for your help and support!

 

Best regards,

Tauno
