Hi dek4jyx, welcome to the forum. Nice to have you as a member of Android Tablets. I'm moving your thread to the Android Tablet Q&A section for you, where more people familiar with that tablet are likely to join the discussion and try to help you. Good luck!
BTW Many chargers come with the cable plugged into them via a USB plug and the cable can be detached and plugged into a running computer for charging. Yours might be one of them.
