Enercell 9VDC - 1500 mA
Be sure to get the correct polarity on the adapter (Important).
I won't know what the correct polarity on the adapter will be until i receive my flytouch 3.
Battery charger not charging: When the tablet is switched off, it will not charge. It must be running on to be charging. Also, doesn't update the battery status while in standby. Bring it out of standby and it looks like the battery is charging fast until the widget catches up to the actual charge... i.e. %2 increase every 5 seconds or so.
Battery life not long: Install a apps killer, Turn off WiFi.
There are more but i want to be sure I'm referring to Superpad 2 Mytouch 3. I have to go back and check my sources.
Seems like identical behavior for my 2 FT2s. I already posted about this issue where the battery is actually charged but the measuring circuit seems to be F**Ked up.
If you live the charger connect for too long (after the LED goes out), this phenomena will happen. It seems like the tablet needs to be ON for the battery monitoring circuit to work. Otherwise, it just either pretends nothing has happened/charged or worst still decides the battery is flat & refuses to power on!
I solved the power on failure by the following method:
1. Unplug the charger.
2. Plug it back in. LED should lights up.
3. Wait a couple of minutes.
4. Turn on tablet.
Anyway, I will not be getting the FT3. No flash 10.1 is a deal breaker for me...
