USB Charging

Post by rphox2003 »

Is it possible to charge the 70 via a PC USB and the USB/Mini USB ports?

Frank - why do you say No? Two of the three links you posted say it can be done.

From a PC usb port, most (including me) see very slow or no charging. They don't put out enough amps.
From a car power converter with usb output results seem to be better.

Try it and see if you have any luck.

@rphox2003:
Please read the postings again.
None states that the A70 can be charged via the MicroUSB, they state that with the right cabel you can use a USB source.

As stated here again and again, there is no physical connection from the micro usb to the loading electronic, so no charging via the Archos microusb.
