The minute I got my new Dingoo, I threw away the charger. Now I'm charging it on my pc, connected to an usb port.

But how long it takes to charge? It shows no battery animation, so I have no clue when it'll be done.

This might be a late reply, but I charged mine through USB on my laptop on Dingux with the brightness set to 5 (as low as it can go before it caps), and it took approximately 7 or 8 hours to (not quite) fully charge. It was just on 1 bar in native firmware, so my guess is leave it overnight if it's almost dead.

Just sayin', my wall charger works just fine. I've left it plugged in for days with no smells, no overheating, no sparks when I plug it in, etc. I think maybe something has been corrected in their production...? Or maybe mine's just a fluke. XD

I've been using a "fake" charger with my "fake" Dingoo for almost six months without any problems. I'd never leave the thing plugged in overnight, though, fake or not. Too risky for any fragile electronic device, IMHO.

Four hours max in the wall plug usually gives my A320 a full charge. Takes forever if I use the USB-to-computer trickle method.

I'm not saying everyone should throw caution to the window and use their "fake" chargers without fear. I'm just saying that it hasn't been an issue for me.

I sold mine as a "value added" item with my Wiz. :D

Since then I've purchased a Samsung phone with a great wall charger, so I use that one for a number of devices now.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4
Toshiba Excite 10 AT300
Ouya!

i used a really good ipod usb charger (1000mA)  and my dingoo stops charging after a few seconds! is this a bug???

it shows "charging" for a few seconds and then it shows "battery full" - when its obviously not full at all??

question - the original dingoo problems are fine are they? the one with the factory name label on the chargers?

does anyone have any problem with those authentic ones?  i went to dingoo888 website and they said that "fake chargers" might explode, and they showed a picture to help identify which is original and which is fake - mine seems to be legit , so should i use it?

all my other usb chargers (for my ipods) doesnt seem to charge my dingoo, it would charge for a few secs and then stop

i just tried the charger that came with the dingoo and it works!  so i either have to use this or my pc's usb (VEERY SLOWWWW)

Are you talking about the green battery animation? It's not charging while it's doing that. Press a button and skip the animation. It will go back to the menu screen with a "+" in the little corner battery icon, so you know it's charging.

Just because the dingoo wall charger seems like it's working at the moment doesn't mean it's not messing stuff up. It's still probably best not to use it. If your Dingoo starts to get abnormally hot or if you see your battery start to puff up, don't use it anymore.

awww seriously?

by the way - does anyone know if using a double usb cable will charge the dingoo faster? i have an old usb cable with two usb cords (which suppose to deliver more power into the electronic device)  does this work?

no, people seem to think you can just force something to charge faster by giving it more current, when in reality they badly need an electronics lesson

the dingoo will not draw any more current even if you use a 50 amp charger with it, it'll just take what it needs to charge (unless of course you poke a soldering iron into the charging circuit in the right place, and lower the resistance of it, which would probably just make your battery explode anyway)

okay after making some observations:

DO NOT USE THE INCLUDED CHARGER EVEN IF ITS THE "REAL" (with the stickers) ONE!

at first i used the included charger coz that was the only wall charger that charges my dingoo :

BUT lately i noticed that i can smell the "burnt plastic" thingie when i was charging my dingoo - very dangerous!

and also, no matter how long you plug the charger, the dingoo will never show the "Battery full " logo - it will keep on  charging the dingoo! (thats why its dangerous!)  it charges the dingoo very quickly (empty to 267000) within 2 hours, but it will never show the battery full logo

now i use my iphone charger with a different usb cable - works awesome!

note to people : if you think your usb wall charger is not charging your dingoo, try a different cable!

i used a midi cable that came with my akai drum pads and they work perfectly - the ones that came with the dingoo didnt do it well

Mine never left the box, I always used a USB cable on the PC ;D I also used a cigarette lighter to USB adapter while on holiday. Both worked great.
Heck, even the stock USB cable would give me problems, so I'm not even using that either!

but when I charged mine with the wall charger it showed the "full battery" thing. I got mine from DealExtreme
