I am often using my device to develop, so I'm a little bit worried that the constant charging might fry the battery. Is there anyway to use USB debugging while not charging the phone?

For all 5 people who are actually using the gTablet's stock UI instead of a custom ROM that is miles ahead of it in features, ViewSonic released a new over-the-air (OTA) update that finally adds Adobe Flash, along with external docking station and USB keyboard/mouse support and a few other things. The full list, found on ViewSonic's news page, is reproduced below:Adobe Flash support External docking station support USB keyboard and mouse support International cities available in Weather Spanish and French language support Energy saving screen lock The update notification should pop up automatically upon your gTablet's next boot and won't require a wipe, so don't be afraid to flash away.Source: ViewSonic Tags:Adobe FlashAndroiddocking stationfrenchkeyboardmousespanishupdate

Charging while USB keyboard/ mouse is connected??
Tuesday 07th of August 2012
Can someone please tell me if it's possible to charge the Nexus while having a keyboard/ mouse/ game controller connected via an OTG cable & usb hub/ splitter cable?If I connect a male/male USB cable between the Nexus charger and the USB hub, will this charge it, or will it damage any of the items connected?My understanding is that all the items are connected in parallel, and so my theory should work. Then again, I'm not 100% about computer things.Thanks.
USB Keyboard not responding corectly
Tuesday 23rd of July 2013
I have a novotech pws700EJ operating on android 4.3 operating system.I bough a mini USB keyboard which is recognised by the tablet however some keys do not produce the correct letters (English UK). Q, W, A and z for example produce the letters as from a French Keyboard.I have changed all input settings to English (UK) and this makes no difference.I also downloaded a Keyboard App "smart Keyboard" selecting it in settings and again selecting English UK this provides me with a UK keyboard on screen but still a French keyboard with the hard keyboard.It is not the Keyboard as I connected by main computer USB keyboard and got the same problem.Any help would be appreciated.
USB keyboard (Any apps who support this?)
Monday 03rd of February 2014
I just bought a usb adaptor for my tablet, and a wireless usb keyboard (and mouse, but thats less important for me) because this was much cheaper than a bluetooth keyboard.But I'm having a bit of trouble. It works, but not without problems, and I figured this might be because some of the apps I use doesn't support it. And the tablet seems a bit confused too. If I plug in the adaptor first, and then the usb dongle/transmitter, I get a notification that the tablet doesn't recognize the usb. But if I take out the adaptor (with the transmitter still in it) and put it back in, it tells me a mouse is connected. In some cases I can see a curser, sometimes I can't. If I already have an app open for writing, I can use the keyboard, but if I tap anywhere, go in and out of apps, or even hit the volume button, the keyboard stops working. And there is also some problems when I hit the spacebar or backspace, like it just continues to make spaces/deletes like the button is stuck (which it isn't, its brand new. I tested both mouse and keyboard on my computer to see if the keyboard was the problem, b

avoiding/preventing charging while USB plugged
Thursday 31st of July 2014
I'm on an LG-G2 Mini, Android version 4.4.2... So like, I'm constantly plugging my phone to the PC through USB cable to transfer music, pics for contacts, and such. Problems is every time I plug it in, it obviously starts charging, and I'm afraid I'll ruin the battery life. So what I really need is a way to prevent this charging (having the option to switch it would be good), or another one would be the ability to transfer these files to the phone through the wireless network, I guess. Are there any way (even through apps) that would do either? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Using the micro USB input for charging and external keyboard at the same time?
Sunday 02nd of November 2014
HiMy tablet has one mini HDMI and one micro USB input port.I connected the tablet to my flat screen TV since I had dropped it once and the display cracked and the touch screen does not work anymore. The internal electronics work fine, though.So I connected an external USB dongle for my wireless mouse and keyboard. The problem is that the table has a weak battery by design, so I have to charge it every hour and disconnect the keyboard and hook up the charger. That sucks. It is a nice quadcore and I don't want to throw it away.I am wondering: Would it be possible to connect the micro USB port to some kind of hub and connect charger and external keyboard and mouse at the same time or would the tablet blow up? Sorry, if this is a stupid question. Anybody has a solution to my problem?If anybody has a cool idea, please post a link to the product that could help me.Thank you in advance.
Nexus 4: lollipop (Android 5) bug: UI has stopped while USB is connected
Tuesday 02nd of December 2014
Hi, I recently upgraded my Nexus 4's OS from Android 4.4.4 to 5.0 and now, whenever a USB cable is connected (to computer or power plug), if the screen is turned off and I turn it back on, I get an error message loop saying: "Unfortunately, System UI has stopped"(it keeps repeating). If I unplug my USB cable, the error message loop stops.
