  • Build a replacement for a broken proprietary AC adapter

    Submitted by olaf on 2015-11-05

    Yesterday, my tablet (Medion Lifetab P9514) didn’t start anymore, even though it was plugged into the battery charger. The tablet is about four years old and my first suspicion was either the charger or the battery itself. Unfortunately, the manufacturer used a proprietary connector instead of a USB or coaxial power connector. This ruled out testing with one of the many AC adapters I already have.
