    First time charge

    Hello,

    Iv just received my TF with keyboard and i have a question about first charging
    Tablet has ~60% and keybord 3% of battery life left.

    So questions :

    1. Should i totally discharge tablet and keyboard and then fully charge it? or immediately charge without discharging?
    2. Can i charge them both the same time? I mean connected to each other.
    3. When they both are connected. Should i plug in chargen to tablet or to keyboard??

    Please help !!

    ASUS recommends an 8 hour charge on the tablet out of the box. It only takes about 2.5-3 hours to run from dead to full on the tablet, but that is what is recommended. I charged the tablet for 8 hours when I got it, then I charged the dock for another 8 hours after that. I would not discharge them and then recharge. Also, 3% is the minimum charge the dock should ever have, if it drops to 0 some users have had their docks stop charging.

    If you have it docked, you HAVE to charge it through the keyboard charging port. After the initial charge this is how I was doing it unless both devices are completely dead because my charging extremely hot to the touch.

    MANY thanks for your reply.

    So it's not so good that after receiving it i have docked and "played" with it for about 30-60min. During this time it was shutted down by my few times.
    Now im planing to charge it 8+ hours docked.
    Do you think this will effect my battery life?

    p.s. can i use it when it will be charging?
    p.p.s. maybe it's better to charge 8hours tablet ant 8 hours keyboard seperatelly?

    I know it is hard not to play with it first. I don't know how adversely it will affect it. I think you can probably use it while charging, but the charging cord is so short (you can make it longer with a USB 3.0 extension cable - I got one from monoprice.com). As far as better to charge separately or together, I don't know the answer to that. I chose to do them separately, but I dont know if it will hurt doing them together. Together it will take longer to charge as the dock will need to charge the tablet while it is also taking a charge.
