If you’re having problems charging the THETA
- try using the same cable that came with your THETA
- try using a 1.5 amp wall charger, not your computer to charge the THETA
The Theta S doesn’t like it when D+ and D- (the inner pins of the USB port) are shorted. AC chargers use this to signal an “AC charger” to Android phones.
There are charging-only USB cables out there (where only the outer pins of the USB plug are connected). They work fine with the Theta S.
Ah. I’ve used those before. Thanks for the heads-up!
The 2.2amp chargers that charge modern phones are too much. It charges fine with 1.5 amp chargers and below. The output is always printed on the charger somewhere. (It may say 1500 milliampers)
