Google Nexus 7
Does not work with Google Nexus 7
Did a search on the site for a nexus 7 compatible charger, this popped up. bought it... and it doesn't really work as expected in 3 cars. The device will charge, but it does not recognise that it is charging. (indicator top right, and screen staying on)
Further reading on the issue suggests that the data pins need to be present and shorted to make the nexus think it's charging. This is not something that is allowed to be done in a standard USB cable because it will fry a USB hub apparently. This fix has to be done in the power device (like the OEM charger) and this charger does not have this fix.
Giving 2 stars as it does charge the device, and it works with my other devices, but for a nexus 7 car charger, look at something else.
