Anti-Gravity Micro Start PPS will charge an ASUS table with the right charger
My post was in response to your post #6 where you state:
[Quote originally posted by Antigravity] I understand you are saying the Eeepad needs a 12v output ... but the fact is that they sell a USB charge cord (as you linked to on amazon) for the EeePAD would tend to disagree with your assessment...
Here is the reason... you cannot have 12v going out of a USB port. It is industry standardized at 5v for the specifications. There is no such thing as a 12v output USB port. Asus would not do anything contrary to industry standards nor would any electronics maker. So, IF the EeePad even has a USB cord that is made for it which is does... (http://www.amazon.com/Asus-Charger-Cable-EeePad-TF101/dp/B007GJR7GS)... I would then jump the conclusion that it can be charged by the USB standard of 5v. Furthermore it would be horrible if Asus made the only tablet that could not be charged by a USB cable which is also the standardized method of charging tablets and cell phones....
I think it can be charged by the 5 volt standard USB... if it was only able to be charged by a 12V it would have that proprietary tip going into a ROUND tip because that is a standard for 12v outputs too, though they have different sizes...I would suggest you buy that cable they sell on amazon and test this out... you would need that cable regardless for ease of charging on the road either way... I just has to be as I said because it just wouldn't make sense for Asus to get contrary to the entire industry. [quote]
This is not a good assumption which is leading your customers astray.
Here is a list of your statements and the actual fact:
Now back to the point of my post - Don't let the weird ASUS USB charger deter you from purchasing the Anti-Gravity Micro Start PPS if you plan to use it to charge an ASUS tablet.
IMHO the PPS is one of the coolest products available and one of the most useful gadgets an adventure ride can carry.
My point was that it will charge an ASUS tablet if you can find the right charger. I did find just such a charger and wanted to let inmates know where to find it.
