NEXUS 7 USB TABLET KILLER USB adapter - DON'T DO IT!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: eForCity Micro USB OTG to USB 2.0 Adapter (Electronics)
DO NOT INSERT DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR YOUR NEXUS 7 TABLET UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!! (READ and know that you have been warned.)
Also tried on my HTC EVO and it did power it, but causes unusual program anomalies (as soon as I plug it in, it starts the EVO Dashboard Program and unit Camera at the same time -- a good indication that the unit is probably shorting somewhere???)
Ordered 3 of these, price was cheap. 1 came obviously defective (connect teeth "hold in place" pins missing.) Next, tried all 3, connector end that goes into the Nexus 7 tablet is WAY too long for the device (at least it's not too short, that's a good thing? How about just right?) No connection made. 100% failure rate.
Even worse: After plugging this into My NEARLY BRAND NEW NEXUS 7 tablet that I love so much, it will no longer power up. WTF!!! $280 down the drain? I am SOOOOOO MAD RIGHT NOW!!!
So, summarize: 1 cable has obvious visual physical defect, and all 3 have electrical connect defect for the Google Nexus 7 Tablet. Sounds like I'm not the only one having problems with this product, especially on the Google Nexus 7 Tablet. Product less than $1 - is it really worth returning? Probably not.
Better to just do a review and share my experience and hopefully the sellers with defective products will just go away! Amazon should consider whether or not this seller can stay on the network if the products can't meet basic expectations. Providing the seller name in the title because Amazon is apparently (based on other reviews) combining reviews from a number of sellers for this item... THIS EXPERIENCE WAS NOT COOL AMAZON!

Unfortunately, the Amazon seller or sellers you used were not listed. The reviews for this product have been consolidated by Amazon and include several different sellers. Different sellers ship different versions of the adapter which may or may not be the same as the product photo. Amazon probably does not allow the seller name in the title so, if instead you would insert the seller name in the review text, this might be allowed.

It happened to me too but not with this cable. You can hold down the power button on your Nexus 7 for 15-20 seconds and then it should power back on.
