Well, it’s finally happened. My charging cord is so far gone that my tablet is basically a $700 paper weight. For those of you that don’t know I do all of my writing on an Asus Transformer Infinity, and he is one sexy beast. Sleek, light weight, and the keyboard dock means that I can write for 10 hours straight on it of I’m so inclined because it is SO comfortable. AND the charge actually lasts that long.
On the OTHER hand. Asus decided that the perfect match for this beautiful piece of tech is a stupid cheap charging cord that now no longer charges my tablet. My sweet sweet tablet that I do so much work on. So thanks Asus. Thanks a lot.
Now you’re probably wondering, what the big deal is here. Why not just go out and buy another cord? Well first of all because of the proprietary connector it means that I have to order a new cord directly from Asus which will take FOREVER, and will still just be a stupid, cheap, die at any moment cord. And secondly, because the no name brand cords that you can buy on Amazon tend to not work! The tablet needs a super high charge and most of the no name chargers can’t handle it.
After a ton of research (aka reading 50 thousand Amazon reviews) I finally settled on 2 different cords to order. They should get here in a few days and I’m praying that they will do the trick.
In case you’re wondering, I’m writing this post from the WordPress app on my iPhone. Thank goodness for an easy blog posting back up solution! But it will be really nice to get back to working on my tablet again.
