Now all you have to do is connect the keyboard and mouse with the single wireless dongle, attach the dongle to one end of the OTG cable and then finally, connect the OTG cable to your tablet. Voila!!

The fire is invented!! Use this mouse and keyboard to swipe through the screen, open the productivity apps, browse the internet or do anything and everything you do on your regular PC.
