Can I charge my android tablet and use my USB barcode scanner?

Hi,

I have connected my android tablet to a barcode scanner with OTG cable. Works fine and happy with it :-).... But how can I charge my tablet while using the barcode scanner? I've tried several adapters but nothing works.

Please help. I have already bought 24 android tablets and 24 scanners but I didn't foresee this problem would occur.

Thnks

Pieter

@All; thnks for the answers but I've tried several adapterd, including the recommended ones, but they don't work. The micro usb is used for charging the usb device and not the Android device.

I guess I have to swith to Bluetooth scanners; What can you recommend ?

use 4 Port Micro USB Power Charging OTG Hub Cable For Android Tablet Smartphone

I don't have experience of using charging adapters, but I guess some OTG multi-hub adapters can charge the device.

For example this adapter on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-Port-Micro-USB-OTG-Hub-Power-Charging-Adapter-Cable-For-Android-PC-Tablet/223008742635?epid=4020209644&hash=item33ec5b5ceb:g:4RQAAOSwz35bGO8q
