    Has anyone tried using other micro USB powercords with the Nexus 10? I have several from my Motorola Razr but I am not sure if the voltage is correct. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Hi Scott :wavey: Welcome to the forums.

    Generally speaking, tablets use 2 amp charger and phones 1 amp. If you used your phone charger on your N10, it may charge but slowly. If you're talking about just the cord itself, I'm not sure it matters.

    Atmazz,

    Thanks for the response. I am just hesitant to use it. This is a replacement N10. My original had a problem of shutting down every time I plugged it in or unplugged it. It also never showed an accurate power level. I used the cord mention in my post and I am just trying to eliminate anything that could have caused the power problems. I didnt think it would do anything to it, that's why I was wondering if anyone else is using different cords.

    I've used the cord that came with my phone. Didn't seem to bother it.

    I use several different cords to charge my 10. Most of them are cheap 99 cent eBay cables and my 10 always says 100% charged when its done.

    No worries mate.
