Now that I've got these magnetic adapters attached to my kobo's. I think I'm noticing a battery drain. My kobo was on at 76%, maybe 20 minutes ago and I just came back discovering the please charge message on screen. I've never had that before.

So I think they are draining the batteries somehow, anyone experiencing similar issues?

strange, I just plugged it in and it charged to 100% in 2 minutes. Battery power was dropping 1% every minute. Ok more testing required and I'll have to check the other kobos - I've unplugged the adapter for now.

**update**
After removing I've attached it again, it was either a fluke or not seated properly. I haven't noticed any fast discharging like I noticed yesterday. All seems good.

Just to add my experience with them. I have used the Smart&Cool Gen4 brand for my devices since mid last year. I do not have my Kobo Forma yet but it will also be getting one. I use them on my iPhone, AirPods, Oculus Go, Kindle Fire, Kindle Oasis 2018, Android Phone and probably a few other devices.

I never experienced any issues with any of the cables. For MicroUSB only one direction supports data sync and the other direction fast charging. This is useful if you want to charge using a computer USB port and not have it connect to the computer.

The only time I have ever had the connector come off is when I accidentally pull the cable directly instead of at an angle to break the magnetic connection. MicroUSB are far less likely to pull out.

One more data point: I bought one of these to use with Kobo Clara:

Will only transfer data when correctly oriented; not when flipped. Fortunately, the cable has a small LED so position is not ambiguous.
