    Initial Charge Dock and Prime recommendations?

    Got a dock and the Prime is coming. What do you recommend about charging both to get the 8 hour initial charge.
    Separate?
    Prime first?
    Or can you charge them together till the Prime power light turns green?

    Welcome. You can charge both at the same time but wait 8 hours, not just until the light turns green.

    This worked really well: Charged the TF-201 for about 12-hours before first boot (it turned on when power was connected - holding in the power button for at least 10-seconds seems to have turned it off.) Kept my hands off it until the next morning.

    What was a little nerve wracking was there was no indicator light for the first couple hours. When I came back, the power indicator had turned green. Reluctantly left it alone until the next morning. Did the initial setup, ICS and camera flash while still connected to the charger. When that was finished, I removed it from the charger, and connected the keyboard for about a 24-hour charge while I fiddled around with tablet by itself.

    Connected the keyboard to the tablet the next morning and disconnected the charger. The keyboard driver update downloaded and flashed, and all is well.

    An interesting thing (to me at least) are the battery icons. With the keyboard attached, they indicate the tablet is running on it's battery and the keyboard battery appears to recharge the tablet as it runs. I ran both of them down to about 1/4 charge yesterday and recharged them, docked, over night. Had a green indicator light and both battery icons show full.

    Thanks for the quick replay, I feel more confortable charging them together. Now if only UPS was as fast responding.
    Thanks again.
