    or its just not possible due to power requirements ?
    i read somewhere (google search term usb charging pandigital novel) that to use usb charging, there has to be dc to dc convertor attached to convert 5 Volts of usb to make it 12 volts which the novel requires. I am not sure whether that will solve the problem since internal circuits arent there.

    This sounds like a great way to fry your Novel.

    NEVER EVER EVER put anything other than a 5 volts through a USB port (unless the manufacturer provided the power supply).

    And besides, the Novels all use 5v power supplies anyway. I seriously doubt the circuits exist for it to handle a higher voltage.
