I wrote a post a while back on keeping your stuff charged at the airport and presented a few parts to minimize the amount of stuff you have to haul with you. My goal was to charge three items on one outlet through USB power. Well I don’t carry a laptop anymore, I carry a tablet.
So here are the devices I took with me and some pictures of me charging them off of one outlet.
- ASUS VivoTab RT
- HTC One Phone
- Olympus SZ-12 (took the pictures with this so you can’t see it)
- Garmin Nuvi GPS (not charging this at the airport, charges in the car)
The Vivo Tab seems to power just fine on the non-Microsoft AC adapter, but it isn’t actually charging. It’s annoying when companies make USB powered items and bizarre proprietary parts. It has a nine hour battery life so I’ll probably just charge the phone or charge it and charge the phone off the USB. Camera doesn’t need charging here that bad.
The camera and phone both charge just fine off the dual port AC adapter I got. The camera is plugged into my tablet.
