I bought a semi broke touchpad from eBay $10. Ok, so it's worth at least worth looking into spending ~$50 on parts to repair and couldn't damage it worst than it is. I started with a new battery.

Same type and manufacturer. I have invested in some li-po chargers and adapters. Without any modifications and the risk of explosion, the only thing I need is a 7 pin adapter to the li-po charger where the pins line up.

These are my chargers and adapters I have invested in and NONE are sufficient to charge without danger, explosion, or modification.

My final option is to rig a single wire into each individual connection and hope that it will work. But being a stubborn man, I will not accept anything other than the correct way, and not a subpar method that will cause more problems than when I started.

As always any suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated.

I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.

✔ Best Answer
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but why wouldn't you just install the battery in the touchpad & use the touchpad's charger?

From what I gathered, new lipo are not allowed to be shipped with any charge for safety reasons. Plugging them straight into the the device will not charge them because they need a slight charge to be recognized by the device. I am taking some Cat6 cable and jerry rigging it to test both batteries now. Many things can absolitely go wroung. I will updatrle $

We'll be listening for the big KaBoom.

But seriously, it doesn't seem likely that HP would make it that difficult. Have you tried installing the new battery and hooking up the charger to see if it will take a charge as riider recommends? That seems like it would be the least risky thing to try.

"bang" in the head. Why didn't I think of that? I feel so useless now. LOL

Sometimes we expect a complicated solution and forget to try the simpler things first.
