|Charging the ZTE from my Waka Waka Solar Charger|
Fast Charge Micro-USB High Speed Charging Cable
With this cable, I can now charge my phone from any USB battery pack or charger that gives 5V to the USB port, and I don't have to worry if my phone will like the charger or not!
This was a very annoying issue for me, and nobody seems to know jack squat about what exactly these phones expect from the USB cable that most chargers don't have. Obviously it has something to do with power to the data pins, but at least know I have a good clue, and a cable that lets me use the chargers I want, like my Waka Waka lantern/charger.
From talking to a few experts, this cable most likely just shorts out the data pins using the DCP (Dedicated Charging Port) spec.
