    I have a relatively new Nextbook Ares 10 tablet (not the one with keyboard) with Marshmallow 6.0 from Walmart.

    I want to connect it to my TV via HDMI cable (a y-cable with tv-HDMI, USB, and micro-HDMI connectors), but all the ones I've seen have a micro-USB instead of micro-HDMI for tablet port.

    I have seen a single HDMI to micro-HDMI cable which would work, but then I'd have to use the factory charger if I wanted to keep it from running down (I stream for hours and hours).

    Can anyone point me towards a y-cable I can use for this?

    Thanks

    You can try looking for the Y adapter on Monoprice, but for your situation I'm not sure how well that would work. I don't believe the USB port will draw sufficient current to prevent the device from shutting down due to a drained battery.

    Thank you, Traveller.

    I checked out Monoprice and found an adapter plug or a single cable for this - - no y-cable. I'll go with the single cable and use my charger.
