    Real Answer to the 8 Hour question

    I recently got my transformer and joined the forum, i was trying to look for posts that answered this question but came up empty handed.

    Im leaving for a road trip and would love to test my transformer before i leave, it says 100 percent charged but its only been 4 hours, do I wait another 4, or am I good to go? (8 hours being recommended by the manual)

    Apologies for the noobness. Cant wait to sink my teeth into this thing.

    Asus does recommend 8 hours before use. Let it charge 1 additional hour and you should be ok.. You may want to download Dual Battery Widget from the Market. It does a great job of monitoring both the TF and Dock..

    personally i always do a full charge on all new electronics.

    then a full drain and you are good to go.

    I never understood the rationale behind letting it continue to charge after the device has reported 100% charge. I think it is a CYA statement from the manufacturer. On the other hand, I want to cover my own posterior as well, so I would recommend you stick to what Asus recommends.

    Thanks for all the info, I decided to be patient and wait it out. Battery life will be just fine, and most importantly no regrets.
