Charging HoloLens when switched off

Hi all,

is it possible to charge the HoloLens when it's switched off? Mine seems to boot up every time I connect the charger.
Reason: I'd like to charge it with some low-power charger, and when switched on, it drains faster than it is charged with that device...

    Just switch it off after you plugged it in :wink:

    Yes, that seems to work with the original charger, I just tested it. Mine is so weak that the HoloLens repeatingly switches on again. Maybe the voltage drops periodically beyond some limit so it feels like being un- and replugged. I'll get a stronger charger!
