Re: Pre BETA version of BlueDV AMBE OTG


Even when I use a wireless charger and then connect my ThumbDV, the android device stops charging.

Looks like OTG can only sent power to an end device like ThumbDV and can not receive power while OTG device is connected.

Greets and 73,

I have done several searches, and in general many OTG implementations cannot do charge and data transfer simultaneously.

However, if you are powering peripherals off a cable splitter, then the Android devices should run their normal battery life for specific programs.

I would love it if someone can show otherwise (and what devices they have found will do both).

If your compilation of phones/cables will include failures, I can confirm that the Apple "USB-C to Digital AV" adapter (which includes an extra USB-A port - and costs $70) does NOT, under any circumatance, allow charging of a Samsumg S8.
