Sorry this is so late. I had a job for the last two months. Got to pay the bills and buy goodies like iPhones
Cables connect devices via ports. Depending on the make and model, most tablets ship with a power connector at least, if not with some sort of headphones on a cable.
Ports on your tablet can be used for charging, communicating and extending storage.
There are a number of type of ports found on tablets. The table below below explains the ports hence the cables etc that connect to them.
|Type of port||Connects to
|HDMI||for connecting your tablet to a TV screen|
|MicroUSB||Charging – via a USB cable to a computer or to a wall outlet, or to a car charger
Communication with another devices e.g. desktop. laptop, printer
|OTG||On the go USB port for unpowered USB devices|
|DC Jack||For those tablets that do not have USB charging|
|Audio port||For headphones, speakers|
|MicroSD card slot||The interface between the card and the tablet is usually recessed into a slot for protection|
|Docking port||Some tablets are designed to connect to a dock which offers charging and data exchange facilities|
As soon as I have a bit more time, I will add images of port types. And also some info on items such camera lens adaptors and other more exotic instruments that can be hooked up to your tablet.
