This is one of the hazards of being on the cutting edge and ordering any Chinese tablet:
When I wanted to charge it for the first time, the charger explode. Now with a new charger, the battery does not charge and I think the video card and battery got fried with the incident. It works fine for a minute or so but then I get this distorted image.
See the video after the break.
I wonder if he was sent the correct charger to begin with? The charger is in a separate box and I can see a mix-up by a seller happening very easily.
And a Commenter adds:
That is not good. Mine sparks when I plug it up to charge it
You know, as much as I have liked the idea of a speedy iPad Mini clone from China, that Acer Iconia A1-810 is beginning to look better. It’s not the thinnest, lightest, or speediest tablet, but it’s also not an All Or Nothing bet.
