    Hi guys,
    possibly a really dumb question, but here we go:

    I am thinking to buy an A61 which I would then like to connect via standard USB 3 adapter to my Samsung Galaxy A7 Tablet (onto which I would then possibly install Cubasis 3 then).
    My question; will the keyboard work/, i.e. will it receive enough power from the tablet (when to tablet itself is NOT connected to an external power source) so I can play, and if yes, how is the level of power consumption compared to say playing a gaming app (higher or comparable)?

    Thx for any replies

    Hello,

    my A49 works with my tablet and an otg cable. So it should work for you too i used it with caustic in the past a few times.

    HI and thx for the quick reply.
    Does your adapter cable has the otg logo or is it bacically an USB- A to USB-C adapter cable (not that I know if there would be a difference, but on Amazon.sg I did not find an adapter cable with the OTG logo -but - as a layman I assume the other cables should work as well )

    It has no logo on it it's just a simple cable as you described it.
