Probably want to get a USB host OTG cable first then a standard USB cable from the same company since they are very inexpensive cables try to get them from the same company to save on shipping.

Default AW: Charging cable

If you want to use the N7 in the car for navigation you'd chose a microUSB cable as short as possible and with thicker power wires because of the larger amount of amperage that charging and the navigation app (at the same time) are needing.

Quality mircroUSB cables like these by DeLock have 24AWG for the power wires instead of 28AWG like the data wires.

Such a quality microUSB cable could become handy also at home, if you want you use the N7 while charging.

And if you want just to charge in N7's stand by over night, any microUSB cable could be used

I buy from Computer Parts, Cables and Hard to Find Computer Accessories - Cyberguys.com, they have quality items at good prices. Their selection is huge , shipping is fast & they've never made a mistake on my orders.

I bought 2 cables and they dont seem to charge as fast as the 1 supplied with the nexus, they work as data cables though which is a plus but im still looking for either a cable to charge or a mains charger.

For the N7 you'd buy an Asus charger.

Because you'll need its 2A amperage and its coded USB output for rapid charging with high amperage.

It is depending of how you charge your N7. If you charge while the N7 is on stand-by, different cables whould not make any difference of charging speeds.

See, the important part is the charger (that plugs into the mains), so you'd use this one which came with your N7 or that Asus (which should be the same ).

Still undecided what to do, that asus 1 is just too expensive, wasn't wanting to spend that much though. Ill see what these 2 cables are like before I buy another cable.

You only might think of this Asus if you haven't this charger anymore which came with your N7.
But you have it, haven't you

I use the USB cable that came with my Samsung mobile phone.

It's longer than the original cable so I can charge and use it at the same time.
