It's a Pipo W2Pro.What tablet are you using? Maybe I could pick one up with the excuse of trying to find a way to charge the battery while registering the charge in Windows and still using USB?
Don't do it just for me though! I've worked out what I think is my best bet. Basically I'm going to settle for charge OR play, but I don't want to have to flick a switch or something to charge so I need to come up with a circuit that disconnects the ID pin from ground when voltage is detected at the charger input and also disconnects power to the USB side (so the controller lights aren't on the whole time it's charging). It's not something you'd really need a device to test it with. The part I'm stuck on is I need the ID pin grounded and the USB power connected when the charger isn't powered. If it was the other way round I could just use a mosfet or a transistor. I've looked into using a jfet but I'm not sure I fully understand how they work.
