    96% available (plugged in, not charging)

    Is that a normal scenario? My battery is at 96%, I'm plugged in with one of those 3.5 amp PWR+ chargers, but it says it isn't charging. I know many devices lie and say they're 100% charged, when the battery is actually slightly discharged. That's just standard procedure for overcharge-protection, from my understanding. So is the T100 simply being more honest about the real battery level, and I shouldn't be concerned?

    It may be as simple as the circuitry will not allow charging until the battery falls to certain level. I know ASUS Android tabs exhibit this behavior.

    Yeah, I suspect that's what's going on here. The difference is that most devices just lie and report 100% for anything above the "don't charge" threshold, whereas the T100 seems to be reporting the remaining charge accurately.

    Anyway, I just sat through a one-hour meeting, ran the battery down to about 89%, then plugged it back in, and now it reports that it's charging. Thus this is probably all normal behavior, just a little different from most devices as far as what's reported to the user. Next time I see that happen, I'll have to remember to check what color the power LED is.

    Mine tends to only stop at 99%. Never had anything lower thus far.

    Edit: With the white LED (Full) instead of the orange LED.

    My LED turns white (fully charged) at about 95% which is when I stop charging.
    If I don't stop it charging the T100 will continue charging to 100% but I think it switches to a 'trickle charge' as it seems to take longer than usual to charge that last 5%

    Note: My T100 came with the big box charger that has the cable permanently connected, not the USB type.
    My usual charging rate is 20% per hour while using the T100 to surf the web and watch videos etc with 70% brightness
    I get about 25% per hour if the T100 is OFF

    I get these figures from the Battery Log of the unrestricted and free (donations accepted) software BatteryInfoView it's simple to use, easy to understand and only uses 0.9 MB Memory and 0.1% CPU when writing a log entry. You can save these logs for future reference if you want.
    It's not bloated with lots of bells and whistles that I don't need like some battery information software and that's why I like it

    Thanks for the tip, I think I'll install that now. I love those little Nirsoft utilities. They're almost as essential as Sysinternals Suite.
