Understanding the Padfone Charging Policy
The ASUS Padfone X allows you to charge your cell phone from the base station twice over. Now to some of us Padfone noobs here there isnt much detail given on how to execute the charging capability on demand. Ill show you how. First there are three modes you need to know.
Intelligent Mode : Uses a combonation of the Tablet Base and the Cell phones battery for prolonged battery life, when the phone is docked in the tablet charging, both the tablet base and the phone are charge simultaneously
Phone Prefered Mode : When enabled this will assure that the tablet charges the phone upon docking instantly until it reaches 100% charge. When pluged in, the phone charges first before the tablet base starts charging
Power Pack Mode : When unplugged the base station screen and features are turned off, allowing you to use the tablet base as a portable charger, charges the phone rather quicky. When you plug in the charger in this mode the tablet base charges first then the phone
To reach this mode select settings > ASUS customized settings > Padfone settings
Now choose Padfone Charging Policy
You are greeted with the options explained.
So now you know how to charge your phone in case of an emergency or when you need to get that extra bit of juice to make that important phone call.
Try to utilize the power saver feature as it really does prolong the battery life of the unit.
