    It's amazing how popular this thread and, I guess, this tablet still are.

    I think its sad. 3 years on, there have been a couple of competitive tablets marketed, but all had problems worse than the little Asus. And now? The niche is completely unfilled.

    I just thank my lucky stars the Asus is so easily repaired.

    The WSKEN mini 2 magnetic charging cables, which I have mentioned on other AVN8 threads, remove the problem of wearing out the musb connector.

    I am convinced that putting the sponge between the folds of the cable is essential, because the cables vibrate when you are travelling.
    Don't use my suggestion of using the pen refills. It's far too fiddly. Sponge is fine.
