    Is it okay to leave it plugged in?

    Sorry if this is a completely retarded question, but is it okay to leave the TF300 plugged in, even if it is at full charge? I don't really want to kill the battery; normally I take out the battery from my laptop if I'm leaving it plugged in to prevent it from overcharging (I killed my old laptop battery that way). However, I'm not sure if the batteries on the TF300 are subject to the same damage.

    Thanks.

    I've been wondering the same thing.

    TF101, 16GB
    iPhone 3GS
    Acer Netbook, 9.5" (sits idle now that I have the TF101)

    I'm no expert but I don't think it should be a problem. most batteries these days have chips in them to prevent over charging. but if you want to be on the safe side, just unplug it until you lose a significant amount of battery power (like 25%) then plug it back in to charge it up. logically it shouldn't be a problem though because many people charge these devices over night, and they're definitely not always going to be around to unplug them when they're fully charged.

    I don't think it's a problem because I've noticed that when it's charging, the back of the tablet becomes hot and when it's 100% or more, it cools down so it means that it stops charging by itself automatically while plugged in.

    You are all correct. But it is still better not to do it, IMO. It is not the best of solutions. Overnight - no problem. 24/7 - asking for a problem, IMO.

    On the subject of battery life, conditioning, length of life etc, I recommend reading this.

    Yeah what Janner said: LiIon batteries do like to be "exercised" a bit, but they don't like being left discharged for long periods of time... or so I've been told by "experts".

    I routinely leave both my TF and smartphone plugged in overnight, both are fully charged in the morning, and both are quite cool (and both get somewhat warm during initial charging up, when I first put them to "bed").

    Been doing this with smartphones for years, and never "lost" a battery yet ...
    TF101 B70 series, USA running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, rooted. 64gb microSDXC, keyboard dock with 32gb microSDHC in an adapter
    Dell Streak 7 running Honeycomb 3.2, rooted. 64gb SDXC. Mainly used as a music player.
    Virgin Mobile Optimus Slider, rooted -- frequently used as WiFi hotspot. 16gb microSDHC.
