Default [Q] B60K(+) Dock series - where did you get it?

I am looking for a B60K or higher series dock, but all the ones in the stores are only B50K.

If you have a DOCK with B60K or higher, where did you get it?

yeah, I too am interested in getting a B60K dock (here in the UK)

If anyone with one, that sees one available or receives one - can confirm the source location in this thread that would be really great..

Battery discharge rate(in idle) is slower than on older ones.

So what now, B50 owners have inferior hardware and are SOL? I still don't get this....

My dock drains because it's charging my tablet. If my tablet is 50%, it shouldn't be too long before my dock is also at 50% and my tablet is at 100%. Then from here, the dock will continue to drain as it charges my tablet. Then as the dock is full depleted, the tablet will also start to deplete.

What's wrong with this?

Also, it should do the same if its in standby and the tablet needs charging. It's the same as if I were to put it on the charger. I honestly don't care how quick it depletes, I'm getting 14+ hours of use with both combined.

People are under the placebo effect of the new dock "lasting longer". I agree with everything you said about the dock having to constantly charge the tablet. It makes sense that it drains over 15%/hour when the Transformer is on and over 3%/hour idle. The battery on the dock doesn't last as long as the TF and some energy is lost from the transfer of electricity from dock to TF.
