It's not the supplied charger or cable. Then cables can fail and many tablets charge slowly if whatever trick/mod the maker used to determine if the source was more than the standard USB 2.0 500mA capacity.

I usually leave my tablets plugged in when not in use to maximize battery life span. So are you telling us it doesn't charge overnight?

I was informed that different cable have different charging speed. certain has faster speed. I guess you can try another charging cable to figure out.

Charger......

The cable you are using would not have anything to do with it, as it is the charger, in most cases the wall plug, that decides how fast it will charge.

Usually when my phone charges slow, its battery life lasts longer but have you checked if your charger port isn't damaged or your charger is really working? Have you tried using another charger?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
