    Could it vary from model to model?

    Someone just told me in another thread that charging it 8 hours at first isn't necessary, and it is only for people to get the full battery on first use. Lithium batteries do not need to be charged fully as they don't use memory. Again, I am just passing on what someone else said.

    From BatteryUniversity.com
    "Lithium-ion is a low maintenance battery, an advantage that most other chemistries cannot claim. There is no memory and no scheduled cycling is required to prolong the battery's life."

    Mine went to green within an hour. It's so tempting seeing it fully charged. But I'll just wait it out for another six hours to be safe.

    Get the Dual Battery widget. Then there will be no guessing games with the charge on your Tablet and Dock:https://market.android.com/details?i...xiYXR0ZXJ5Il0.

    it's on the power button

    if your prime is connected to the charger, you should see a green light or orange light on the power button
