Default Charging Brick Info

Hey guys can some that still has their ASUS brick tell me the milivolt charge rate?
and if anyone knows how i can get my hands on another one or a charger (besides paying 20 something for another charger on the play store)
from a different OEM's that will charge my nexus 7? I have chargers form HTC, Samsung, Motorola... I have tried them all and they all seam to charge the tablet very slowly and i am assuming that is because it the bricks are at a lower milivolt charge rate.

Thanks for the info/ help guys ~kid

Are you looking for the output from the OEM charger? If so, it is 2A. When not in use I am able to easily charge it with a 1A charger (it may be an 850mA, I'll have to confirm when I get home).

I easily charge mine when not in use at work with my old Motorola Droid charger. I think he's right though, I think the ASUS is 2A.

I use an after market dual USB port charger with a 2.1 amp output for "iPad" use and a 1 amp output for other devices. (Scosche) I also have a couple of battery power packs that also charge it if I am mobile.

I use my Galaxy Nexus charger to charge my N7. It charges a bit more slowly that on the N7's own charger, but not dramatically so.

Battery pack was like $15 - not a big one, wall AC charger is available in 2 and 4 port versions for about the same price. I have several USB charged devices.

Amperes is the measurement of electron flow past a point ... From wiki..."the ampere is a measure of the amount of electric charge passing a point in an electric circuit per unit time with 6.241 10^18 electrons"

It's a really large amount of electrons moving past a point but they are really really small!
If you think in terms of water it's like gallons per minute for amps and the water pressure is the voltage.

Spot on! Excellent description of amperage and voltage! I'm going to guess you're some sort of electrical type.

Yeah been pushing electrons around for a long time ... Way before any of this LCD color technology was even heard of! Good cartoon analogy! What's really wild is the electrons are pushed in at one end of the wire and different ones pop out the other end!

I think so, but I'm not sure. I've tossed my GNex on my N7 charger and noticed no overheating or other issues.
