    charge docking station by itself

    Hi to all, is it possible to charge the docking station by itself?, I bought a docking station as an addon for my tf. The tablet needed a charge so i connected the tablet and docking station to the charger, the tablet charged completely whilst the dock is only blinking an orange light in quick successions, I downloaded the dual battery widget and the docking battery is being marked as charging. Since my tablet has charged and the docking station is still charging can I just remove the tablet and continue to use it whilst leaving the docking station to charge? To be honest I removed the tablet and it seems that the dock is still charging however I do not know if it is normal that the light continues to blink an orange light? Maybe it needs a complete 8 hours since it is the first time that the dock is getting its charge?
    Thanks for your help.

    Yes. You can charge them independently.

    You're doing OK. The dock is fine to charge by itself. I'm not sure if it is suggested to charge the dock for 8 hours the first time or not since it probably has the same type of battery or not but it is no problem to charge the dock with or without the tablet connected. The light with turn green when fully charged.

    Yes, you can charge the docking station independent of the tablet. The docking station light should change from blinking (<5%) to steady orange to green when fully charged.

    The blinking will stop and light will go green once the dock's battery is fully charged but you could leave plugged in for a few extra hours or more with no problems.
