I think this is getting quite critical for me, and I have seen a few others having the same issue. I kept my dock charged all weekend(solid green light), and last night took it off charge closed lid and put it in my bag. Today, I opened the TF and installed the awesome Battery widget from the Apps section, and it says my dock is at 3%, and my TF at 97%. So in a matter of 14 hours, the dock has been drained with the TF being idle and screen off.
Hey all, first off, thanks for the link-age to the battery widget. I can finally see what's going on with my dock battery status....and that status is NOT good
I posted in another thread that I had charged my dock as soon as I got it (before connecting to the tablet) for 18+ hours, and I never saw a green light. After that, I connected it to my tablet running Primordial 3.1, it offered to update the dock FW to 0209, and I allowed it to. It said update successful, and Settings confirms the dock is at v0209.
Problem is, now that I can see my dock battery status with that widget, it shows only 37%. My tablet is at 100%, so I figured the dock should then take the charge from the official ASUS mains charger, but this doesn't appear to be happening. As soon as I plug in the charger, the widget shows "Dock Status: Charging", then after 1-2 secs, changes back to "Not Charging".
The dock light is solid orange while I have it "charging"/plugged in, and I have NEVER seen it turn green. When I disconnect the charger, the orange light on the dock flashes infrequently, telling me that it has less that 95% charge. I am not sure if there is something faulty with my actual dock, but people reported that the v0209 FW fixed most issues. I just wish I could get both battery statuses to 100%!!
I wish ASUS did a better job on this dock. I know that it is a groundbreaking product here, so bugs are expected, but since it is hardware and I only have 14 days to return it to the store I bought it from, it would be good to know what the beep is going on...
Any thoughts, suggestions, comments would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance...
