ADB Debugging and Charging Issues

We are using the ThinkPad Tablet (1838-22U) for our android development.

 

We have run into an issue, the micro USB port the Lenovo uses by default for charging is also the same port you must use for the debug bridge. So developers are having issues with batteries going dead in the middle of development.

 

It seems the USB port charges very slowly (if even at all?) while plugged into a computer. Is their an AC adapter that uses the expansion port instead of the micro-usb?

Not yet, but we're hopeful we'll have soon. The dock is the only other way I know of.

Some folks on rootzwiki.com were working on an A/C adapter. Not sure how far along they are.

Re: ADB Debugging and Charging Issues

You can get your computer enhanced with a usb3.0 pci-e card,which has a bigger output current high to 900ma,much bigger than usb 2.0 500ma.Or buy a thinkpad tablet dock,shipping with a regular thinkpad ac-adapter.So that your can keep your battery alive while your development.

Re: ADB Debugging and Charging Issues

I made an AC adapter for the TPT.

All the build instructions are at the wiki.
