      It seems that there are some phones where the OTG and charging don’t work as I explained here – plugging charger cable AND device you want to connect into the OTG cable BEFORE connecting it to the phone. If you did that and it isn’t working then perhaps your phone is a Samsung! (See other comments here about Samsung phones and the note at the end of the article above).

    Other sites say you have to plug the charging cable into the hub before plugging the hub into phone.
    However I have a Samsung S5 and cant get it to charge at all via the hub even though the switch is on charge. Plugging in USBs work ok though

      It appears that there are issues with Samsung phones and OTG charging according to some other comments I got here and some emails I received on the subject. Can’t help with that I’m afraid.
