“Y” OTG Cable To Charge While Running KX3 Companion

Hi everyone,

one of the questions I’m receiving recently is about how to keep the Android device charged while using the KX3 Companion.

The problem is that while using the KX3 Companion, the microUSB port is used to connect via OTG USB cable adapter to the KX3. So the port can’t be used to recharge the tablet/phone.

Recently I realized that there’s a solution to that is a Y cable that let you use the microUSB port both for connecting and recharging.

Yesterday I ordered one and it just arrive and I immediately tested it and it works.

I tested it with the Nexus 7 2013 and the Motorola Moto G.

The cable I bought is this one:



The Amazon link is:


There are others but that is the same one I bought from Amazon Italy.

I’m sure this is a useful information for all those that want to go mobile and stay out for more than a few hours.
