    TF Power Cord

    A quick question for you, as I consider purchasing a TF.

    How'd they engineer the power cord for the docking station? For instance, my Dell laptop has a long cord with a "brick" transformer......dang near as heavy as the laptop. I see the iPad has a very lightweight power cord/transformer conbination.

    Did Asus follow the iPad or Dell model?

    thanks

    They followed the iPad model but it is a bit larger than the iPad. It is black. It is about the size of some cell phone chargers. (maybe a bit bigger).
    The cable itself is 6 feet long. If that is not long enough for you, you should do what I do. I have a 15 feet extension cord and I plugged the charger in that.
    It works perfectly and I have plenty of length.

    The TF101 has a 3' power cord and a small wall wart (like an iPad). The TF201 has a 5-6' cord and the same wall wart.

    You can also get a USB 3.0 extension cable and make it longer. I got a 6' to go with my 3' so I have 9' of charger cord.

    Also, it should be noted that the TF will not charge via a stanard USB port. I take that back, it will charge but only at a rate of about 3% per hour when the screen is off. The wall wart will charge it around 35% per hour.

    speaking of power chords that is my one weak link. i don't want to end up having my chord get damaged, misplaced and be forced to power up via the usb in the dock until finding a replacement. glad you posted or i would have forgotten to get a spare ordered.
