    I picked up this cheap HDMI adapter off Amazon:
    http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B...rch_detailpage

    I am streaming YouTube videos from 4G, it works fine for sending video/audio to TV, however, even though the little charge indicator on the fone displays when connected to the adapter, the fone still loses charge at a decent rate ... I've tried connecting different mA chargers to the HDMI, from 1000 to 2.1, doesn't matter ...
    ** I would be happy with even an HDMI adapter / cable that at least holds the current charge state ... I have seen this complaint in reviews of some other similar items ...
    Can anyone recommend an HDMI adapter that will not drain down the fone while it indicates charge?

    The reason the adaptor shows it is charging is because it is plugged into the phone's charging port. The reason it is not actually charging is because the other end is connected to your TV so you can watch the shows you mentioned. Nowhere in that line is there any power going to the phone so yes, it will lose power.

    Now, if you get something like this, you can plug your regular charging cable into it and the other end to a power supply. Then plug the HDMI adaptor into this unit to go to your TV. This is only a suggestion and I have no idea if it will work or if it will adversely affect your phone.

    Addendum: I just looked closer at the product you provided an image of. It does appear there is a power outlet on the side of it. Have you connected it to a power supply? If so, then maybe there are limitations of what can be done with such a device.

    Yes, I did mentioned in the OP that I tried using various Chargers with no difference ( The adapter Must be powered by a wall charger or USB port separate from the TV's HDMI & it is "supposed to power/charge the fone)

    You could tether your phone as a wifi unit since you are already using 4G for a Chromecast
