I forgot my charger at a friend's house and I'm not going there for a few days. I need to know the output voltage of our chargers and the + and - orientations on the charger plug. Can someone please post them so that I can use a multi charger without damaging the tablet?

12V DC and the center contact is positive.
It's rated for 2 Amps, but mine barely gets warm, so I doubt that it actually draws anywhere near that much.

Folks,

If you need a backup or and extra, search the web for:

MPA-630

You will find that the G-Tablet power supply is commonly
use with the digital picture frames and you can buy them
for $13-16. (That way you don't have to worry about the
size of the plug, polarity, etc.)

I was wondering if it's me or do the OEM chargers have problems. I don't know if my adapter is dying or if my tablet is experience the problem. Yesterday I plugged my gtab and it didn't charge. The light was on but battery life didn't increase. After fidgeting with it more I managed to charge it. Is it time to buy a new adapter?

Sounds like you might also be having the loose connector issue that several people have reported on here. The charging port inside the gTablet gets loose and needs to be re-soldered back onto the board. If the gTab is still under warranty, you can send it in to have the board replaced (takes a few weeks).

I notice that the power have to supply 2A or greater. I tried the charger with less than 2A but it did not work well when the tablet is on. It will hang and make ticking noise. It has no problem charging when the tablet is off.

Awesome, thx for the info! I've been looking for a reasonably price replacement charger for hours on a new-to-me gtab!
