    Exclamation Keyboard Dock Battery totally discharged before switching to Tablet Battery

    I just got the Keyboard Dock for my Asus Transformer Infinity 700tf on eBay refurbished for 80 bucks and the dock completely discharged to 0% before switching to the tablet battery. Why did it run the Dock battery completely down to 0% first and not switch to the tablet battery once it got to 15 to 10 percent or something like that so it would not totally drain the dock battery that was I thought not good for a Lithium polymer battery.
    If it completely runs down the dock battery before switching to the Tablet Battery what is the point of the Dock if you have to plug it back in if it gets to 15% to 10% or less? The battery in the dock has a shorter life then the Tablet Battery so it actually shortens the run time per charge if you are having to plug it back in every time the dock battery gets low.

    Thanks.

    The dock battery is discharged before the tablet battery is - that's normal operation and the dock will quite happily run off the tablet battery in this situation until both batteries are fully discharged.

    The fact that the dock battery says iot is at 0% means that it's at 0% of the useable capacity, not that it has been discharged to the point of damage.

    This isn't really what's happening. The tablet always uses the tablet's battery. However, when the tablet is docked and its battery depletes some amount (I haven't measured how much), the tablet recharges from the dock battery, restoring the tablet battery to a full charge. So, there really isn't an "switching" from the dock battery to the tablet battery once the dock is depleted.
