    Question Battery Life with dock: Is there any indicator for checking how much battery in dock?

    Hey all,

    Is there a way to tell how much battery is there in the dock?
    I have been using the dock, and it has not been giving me the 16hrs+- that has been promised.
    Usage was normal, and I have tested it a day on standby and no difference...

    Charging on the dock was a steady orange light after a whole night...
    Has anyone came across this or know if there is an app that can check the dock battery life?

    Thanks,
    Jase

    There's actually a couple of battery widgets that will show the dock's level, Dual Battery Widget (available in the market) appears to be the most popular choice.

    Thanks for the replies! I finally get to see if the dock has any battery in the first place, saves me a trip down to the service centre.

    Just an update... My dock battery shows 17% and does not change. Looks like the trip to the service centre is still gonna happen.

    'Final' update for my battery saga:

    After the firmware update and testing if the keyboard wakes up the tab, it still fails in these checks. Battery does not charge either.
    So off it goes to the service centre.
    They replaced the main board just to get it to work again.
    In the end, its working as expected and firmware updates are running fine.

    Thumbs up

    the dock gives me approx 2 hours additional time when normally web-browsing with wifi.
    B70 rev and i don't have the battery-drain bug. i have no softwares installed, expect the dual battery widget.
