Cable to charge & USB flash drive at the same time for Yoga Tablet 2?

2015-06-30, 9:26 AM

Is there ANY y-cable or hub out there that lets me charge my Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 while simultaneously using a usb device like a thumb drive?

 

I bought this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CXAC1ZW?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00

 

But it doesn't work. :( Has anyone found a cable that works with the Yoga Tablet 2?

 

Thanks!

I really wanted this to work so I looked into this when I got the tablet 6 months ago. You can find other posts about this if you go back several months in the forums. The usb connection cannot operate as a data connection and charge at the same time. This is apparently the way lenovo has designed the Yoga and it's other tablets.

No. The product you found only works on some devices, the lenovo tablets do not work with those.

Is it because you haven't found a cable that works yet, or does the Yoga Tablet 2 not support this feature at all?!
