How To Use Otg Cable

Recommended Posts

Dave

I hope to demystify the OTG cable with this one single photograph!  A couple of forum members were chatting about the Toshiba Encore Mini in this thread and working towards an OTG solution for the Toshiba Mini.  The "On the Go" cable solution allows you to power the tablet and utilize USB accessories all via the single micro USB port on the tablet.  This works for most tablets with just the single micro USB port.

I have another one of these cables and tested that it works as well.  It is available via Amazon Prime.  Here is the link:

4. USB Wall Charger. This one is from my Nokia 635.

 

I assume you know the tablet and the USB stick!  Replace USB stick with a USB hub for keyboard, mouse, etc.  Joe_Miner proved that working.

WOW, this is really nice and should be a great resource for anyone looking to power a tablet while accessing USB devices!

Hey everyone, thanks a lot for posting this information!

 

I bought everything listed in the original post a month or so ago but didn’t try it all out until now.

 

Unfortunately I seem to have lost cable #3 in the interim but I decided to give it a shot anyway.

 

So I think the setup I have now is what yodafett was describing — the red end of cable #2 is plugged into a standard–sized (not micro) USB charger.

 

Everything’s working great!

I'm new here and not that computer literate, so......

 

Can I use a Toshiba Encore 2 WT10-A32, as my tablet in this incredible configuration? I simply want to power the tablet; while using a USB wireless keyboard & mouse.... all at the same time. All help appreciated!

If you don't currently have the mouse and keyboard, you could always use Bluetooth models and avoid needing the USB port for a dongle.
