OTG Y Cable with Power to Samsung 8 Tab
#3
I've studied the same topic for almost two years, so here we go ;).
It's not about the cable, it's about what part of USB OTG specification your tablet does support - namely USB Battery Charging 1.2, and it seems that your tablet doesn't support it. Before USB BC 1.2 OTG specification said that OTG host MUST provide VBUS at all times, period. From device's I've tested only phones Samsung J5 (2015) and LG G4 (H815) support OTG host while charging out of the box (and I've tested a few). Some OLDER Samsungs allowed charging while in OTG host mode with ID pin connected to ground with either 124 kΩ, 100 kΩ, 68 kΩ or 36,5 kΩ resistor - but we're talking about 2013's devices, so rather don't expect it to work.
So now you have two options - buy ACA-compatible charger (ACA stands for Accesory Charging Adapter - rather pricey, ant there is still a chance that your tablet doesn't support ACA), or get modified kernel for your device.

Grounded ID pin only informs OTG host that some OTG device is attached, of course there is data exchange (at very least device descriptors reading) to determine what kind of device it is.
