What to connect to the tablet?

A tablet is a self-contained device with which you can watch videos, listen to music, read books, and do many other useful and enjoyable things. However, to perform certain functions, you will need to connect other devices to your tablet PC.

What can be connected to the tablet?

Flash drives and memory cards

If you do not have enough internal memory, you can increase it by installing a microsd flash drive or USB drive. The possibility of this or that option depends on the device of your tablet and the presence of a card slot or USB connector in it. You can also connect an external hard drive to your tablet. If the tablet battery is not enough to work with the HDD, connect it via a USB hub, which has its own additional power.


To view images on the big screen, you can connect the tablet with a TV. The easiest way is to connect the gadget to the TV using an HDMI cable.If your tablet does not have an HDMI connector, and there is only a USB output, you can use a USB / HDMI adapter.

A computer

To copy files from one device to another, it is sometimes necessary to connect the tablet to a stationary PC. In most cases, this can be done with a regular USB cable.


If you need a tablet to work and create documents, then you can not do without a separate keyboard. You can attach a keyboard via a USB port or an OTG cable (this depends on the device of your gadget). In the same way you can connect the mouse. If you need to install the keyboard and mouse at the same time, use a USB hub.

Through the audio jack, you can connect headphones or speakers to your tablet. In case the built-in camera breaks down, you can connect an external device to the tablet (although it will also require drivers). Gamers often connect tablets with game joysticks. For this, too, often have to install additional software.

You can connect another modem or telephone to this device.
