    Battery charging

    Page 1 of the users guide says, "IMPORTANT! - DO NOT LEAVE THE ASUS TABLET CONNECTED TO THE POWER SUPPLY ONCE IT IS FULLY CHARGED. ASUS TABLET IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE LEFT CONNECTED TO THE POWER SUPPLY FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME. Well, I usually ignore instructions about battery charging and just leave most devices, phones, laptops etc. plugged in with no ill effects. However, after less than 2 years of use my TF103C simply stopped charging. Nothing I did seemed to work. I removed the back and unplugged the battery, waited and plugged it back in - nothing. I tried to charge it from a computer USB - nothing. I figured it was worth the $45 to try so I bought a new battery, installed it, plugged it in, charged it (took 12 hours or more) and bingo, my TF103C is alive again. So my advice is to heed the instructions and don't leave your tablet and perhaps other ASUS devices plugged in all the time. It appears they don't have protection circuitry to prevent overcharging.

    No surprise at all. None. Nada. Zip.

    It is the advice given here all the time and also which is clearly stated in our "definitive guide" to battery use / charging thread linked in the Master Help Guide. Something you might have found by searching first...
