AbigGRNboot,

Did you purchase the same cable that Gahrgamel and I did? If not, where did you get your cable from?

smithmal
I think it was the same one. I found it through the "largest internet retailer" by default since it's the only one the ship unless you get all kinds of adapters with it.

Saris,

I depends on what your USB charger's power output is. If it's less than 2A it will be slower, if it's more than it may be equal to or faster than the stock charger. Still waiting for my USB/barrel cable to arrive...

smithmal,
thanks for a quick reply. Please share your findings once the new cable will arrive to you

Be sure to stay away from this supplied charger with Chinese writing on it, and this part number LN-0500200-AW, DC 5V, 2A.
If I can figure out how to post a pic, I will put it up.
7 days after purchase, I have one dead Chuwi v88 and the other is stuck on 10%.
Trying to get ET (Eternal Team) to deal with this issue is like trying to pull my own teeth out.

Thanks for responding. I ordered the same cable as Gahrgamel from Amazon. If it turns out not to work then the cable will need to be re-wired with the appropriate barrel tip. I/we will update everyone on the compatibility of the amazon cable when it arrives. It would be great if someone could write up a procedures and/or provide a link on how to make a DIY USB cable with a barrel tip if it turns out a compatible cable isn't available for ordering.

Finally got my cable in and it is charging fine using a USB charger plug. I've tried two chargers:

- A Powerline Dual 4.2A charger and a
- Generic 5V 2A charger that came with a Android TV stick I purchased (unfortunately no model information is present on the charger).

As stated earlier, these are short cables (1M) so if anyone finds a good 6' to 8' length USB to barrel cable, please let us know. I'm happy I can put these chargers to good use and I have an alternative if the crappy charger that Chuwi provided fails.

you need charger which can supply at least 5.4V and 2A for proper charging so don't be surprised if your charger won't work or will take eternity to charge few percents if you have charger which is supplying only 5V and/or less than 2A

I haven't seen a charger rated at 5.4V. My original Chuwi charger was rated at 5V and 2A and died within 24 hours of getting the tablet. However the 5V 2A charger from an old USB hub provides a speedy charge as does a charger for an old Sonos iPod dock. So far, my generic 5V 2A charger with a USB to 2.5mm cable provides a slower recharge, but works well for overnight charging of the tablet.

grabertj,

I'm getting a "404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable
" when clicking on your link. Could you fix it for us?

Insert only 'http://www.superbuy.my' then search for 'innergie'...then look at the the 3rd one:).

Question -> Will these combo work with the v88?
