STS (TL002C)
LAVA Products: TAB 4 Mini Kiosk


Designed for commercial/OEM applications, this intelligent adapter makes it possible to not only simultaneously operate your Samsung Galaxy Tablet in USB host mode and to charge it at the same time, but also provide critical control of charging modes. These features are useful when installing tablets in kiosks or other commercial applications.

This adapter is designed for robust operation, with more advanced Accessory Charging Adapter (ACA) mode switching, and even more stable tablet charging characteristics than the LAVA TL-002 adapter.

This adapter is not provided with a case.
