    Pretty much mirrors my experience as well. The Newertech does work with my ipad w/the switch in correct positions but no go w/my Dell. I tried w/my HTC One and couldn't get it to charge regardless of config. Back to Amazon it goes...

    Wondering if someone here can help me out here. If I solder charging wires to the V+&V- on the usb will the v8p charge or would the D+&D- have to be shorted? what I plan to do is solder a qi receiver to the power tabs on the inside of the v8p but I would like the question answered before I went to all the trouble.

    Greetings everyone,

    I joined this forum for this thread in particular. After reading through all of it, I decided to buy the following:

    Micro USB Host OTG Cable w/ External USB Power Port for Samsung Galaxy S2, i9100, S3, i9300 - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

    LDNIO SY-H16 Stylish Compact High-Speed 3-Port USB 2.0 HUB - Silver - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

    USB Male to Micro USB Male Charging Data Cable w/ Switch for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 - Black (100 CM) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

    I will report if it works when it all arrives.

    Thank you to everyone that has contributed so far. Very good work here.

    I can confirm that these products plus a powered 10 port USB 2.0 hub works perfectly to charge my DV8P and access my 250GB 2.5 hard drive, external USB DVD Drive and wireless Logitech mouse simultaneously.

    Purchased from DealExtreme (DX.com) Shanghai, China

    SKU Product or Service Name Quantity Price
    175368 USB Female to Micro USB Female Adapter - Black 1 2.50

    205901 CY U2-166 USB Female to Micro USB Female + Micro USB Male
    Adapter Cable - Black (15cm) 1 3.00

    241044 USB Male to Micro USB Male Charging Data Cable w/ Switch for
    Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 - Black (100 CM) 1 3.30


    No soldering, no rewiring , Just plug together and go! Start with switch in charge position wait until charging from desktop icon and then switch to data position. Continues to charge in slow mode I believe but mounts your hub and all plugged in devices. Hooray!

    This worked great for me. I imagine a keyboard and other devices will work also because no power is being pull from the Venue 8 Pro.
