USB-C and Nexus 7k
« on: April 07, 2016, 12:49:13 PM »
My Nexus 7 battery runs down fairly fast (normally a couple of hours of constant use) and takes forever to fully charge.
Wondering if a USB-C cable might help, or is my battery just telling me it's near life's end?
Have read some horror stories about USB-C's and don't want to risk killing my machine.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Rob

The Nexus 7 does not have a USB c connector, or the hardware to take advantage of the new protocols.
If it is draining to fast while in use, consider lowering the brightness, turning off location, Bluetooth, NFC if not used.
If the discharge is while not in use, consider changing the sync of many apps that poll constantly for updates. Facebook, mail, messenger, etc.

For slow charging, try a new cable  and/or charger. It may only be charging at .5 amps. Since this is the new Nexus section, you can try a qi wireless charger if the usb Jack is damaged.
