Help with buying a Tablet

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm going on vacation to the U.S of A in a few weeks, and thought I'd buy a new Nexus 7 there, as it's much cheaper there than in Sweden (stupid high sales tax).

I've already figured out the warranty, place to buy, and so on, but I still don't know how to charge the thing here in Sweden. Is it possible to charge it via USB from my laptop? Or do I need to buy an

adapter? Is there any difference in the battery of the European and US version? And so on.

Thanks! :)

Yes, you can charge it via USB or you can buy a 220V charger for it when you get back home. Charging via USB usually takes significantly longer than using the charger.

Chargers use 110v or 220v but they all output 5v, the same as all USB ports. So, you won't damage the tablet by charging it from your laptop.

The only problem is that computer USB ports usually have lower amperage than dedicated chargers, and because of that it takes longer to charge the tablet from an USB port that from a charger.

I know they sell adaptor for the charger.

If you want to be sure it's compatible, just buy one!

(also ask the seller, just in case)
