    [SOLVED] TF201 no longer charging completely

    A month or two ago I noticed that my TF201 tablet would not charge any higher than 78%. As of today it is topping out at ~67%. My dock still charges to 100% however.

    This occurs both with and without the dock connected during charge. Both the tablet's battery summary and the Dual Battery Widget show "Charging" but the level never increases all the way to 100% . I've tried a couple of cold resets but there's been no change to the problem. I can't recall having ever left the tablet on AC for extended periods or even fully discharging the tablet besides when I first bought it in February.

    Any advice on (hopefully) how to rectify this issue?

    Fully discharge the tablet and then charge it via wall charger for over 8 hours. Then check the status of the charge indicators. It is recommended by Battery University and other sites that you discharge fully (to about 3%) once a month or so to calibrate the internal charge sensor. Let us know if that works out.

    Read the Battery Use Guide in my signature below for more infomation.

    Thanks, I'll give that a whirl. I poked through your guide earlier today but must have missed the bit about fully discharging every so often. Learned lots of other useful info though!
