    In fact, no one have found a way to charge and have usb.
    But these devices allow you to not discharge and have usb.
    I use them to have an external monitor when I am at the office.

    I need to buy one. The description says it works (so as to allow not discharging in use) which should be good enough for my needs.

    Makes me glad that I got the Toshiba Encore 2 Write which offers an inexpensive adapter to address this from the manufacturer.

    Yea, definitely an easily avoidable problem. Fortunately for me, I can count on one hand the number of times I plugged any type of USB peripheral into my AVN8. My use case just didn't call for it.

    So, would one be able to restore via a USB recovery partition using one of these dongles?
