I didn't realise Nokia did an official one, thanks.
I am using CA-100 with my 3270 Classic. When the phone has a high charge, the cable works fine. But when the charge is lower, it starts getting intermittent problems charging.
I have found that if I connect a USB hub first to the computer/laptop/portable battery, and then connect the phone to the hub, it charges perfectly every time.
I can only vouch for the hub I use, which is the Logitech Premium 4-Port USB Hub for Notebook (this is a powered hub, but can be used un-powered). I use it without external power.
I am guessing that the CA-100 cable doesn't properly alert the port that a device has been connected, so it won't pump more juice through, however the hub alerts the port that it requires all the juice it can throw at it, which is then distributed to any hub-connected devices.
If I am correct it will actually charge faster than without the hub, especially if there are no other devices. If I am wrong, well, it works for me.
Anyways, it works great for me. Let me know how you people go.
