Hi,

Has anyone bought and used successfully a generic 5V 2A wall charger with the S2 ?

I bought one recently, so I could have one at each location the tablet was likely to be used at, but despite the one I bought having same rating (5V 2A (aka 2000mha) with a DC 100-240v range) it doesn't seem to charge the tablet.

The user manual does mention to only use the supplied charger (2 pin with a UK adapter) but whats so special about it, anyone know ?


thanks

Hi it looks like there is a problem with my original pipo s2 charger. When the pin is connected to the charging port, it stops charging during small movements. I figure that it is due to its slightest smaller diameter of the pin. Maybe this is also the reason of your new generic charger. Try to move is a little bit to see if your case is bad circuit connection also.

hi all. je souhaite acheter un pipo s2 pour regarder des films, lire sur le web et regarder des films en streaming sur le web. vous qui l'avez, fait-il ces actions correctement? le wifi est bon ? la durée de la batterie est correct ? Merci beaucoup de vos reponse car elles me permettront de finir mon choix : la pipo s2 ou la sanei n86, dont la batterie est moins puissante mais l'ecran ips. Et aussi,je suis vraiment content de lire des utilisateurs de la machine : je cherchais sur les forums et ne trouvais pas de proprietaire... Bonne année a vous !

I think the Pipo S2 is an excellent bargain. The screen isn't IPS, but I have no complaints about the image given the price. I got mine from Eternal Team through Aliexpress (yes, I know people have had problems with them but I got mine on time in good condition -- UPS is better than DHL or EMS at my location) and was pleased to see the tablet arrived with English firmware -- usable out of the box. That's probably one reason you don't see custom firmware for it -- what's shipped works fine. I had no problem with downloading all my Google Play apps even though I didn't modify the build.prop file except for changing the location and default time zone. I'm not a gamer so YMMV. No problems with streaming video.

The Rockchip RK3066 provides excellent performance. I rooted mine the harder way using ADB from the Android SDK, because I wanted full control of the process, but there are scripts that will make it easier if you require root and don't want to go that route. Battery life is good -- Pipo claims it has a 5000 mAh battery. I've found it good for a day or two of intermittent use (mostly web browsing and e-reading) per charge.

It would be tough to do better for the price!

Can anybody show me how is the original charger??

I have a compatible one but not original, and I can't wake up my tablet. I read that I need the original one, I don't know why.

That's really weird
