Will a 30W charger NOT charge the Lume Pad 2 at all or only more slowly since the specs are for 33+W?
Hi Rhonda! It’ll work, just more slowly. It may not keep the device fully charged if you’re using it heavily while plugged into a 30W charger, but it will only drain very slowly in the worst case.
With a 33W+ charger, the battery will not drain over time while using it regardless of what content you’re using on the device, such as high-performance 3D games.
Thank you so much, but I’ve not been able to find a charger that is precisely 33W anywhere – or even a 35W charger.
Look for Anker 713, cheap and good. I’ve recently bought the 735 GaNPrime version a few weeks ago when on sale.
Thanks, Daniel. After posting, I discovered that I had previously purchased a PD QC4 65W charger, and it VERY quickly charges my Lume Pad 2.
Thank you, Nima. Are you aware of any charger manufacturer’s model that produces precisely 33 watts.
It seems there’s quite a few if you Google. However, it doesn’t need to be exactly 33W, that’s just the minimum. Higher is usually better.
