Charging a NEW tablet

2021-02-11, 8:02 AM

Hello, got a new Lenovo Tab m10 fhd plus. Took out the box, used for a day, run out of battery so put on the desk charger for an hour. Only a red light on, no flashing battery icon or anything else.

Unplugged and plugged with power adapter to the wall. Same thing: red light on, but no sign of this charging...only at the beginning I can see the battery drawing with a thunderbolt in the middle that quickly disappears...so I am now looking to a 'dead' device, plugged in.


Is this normal?


How do I know that it is indeed charging?


How long will this take to show charge?

Just charge for a little bit longer like 2-3 hours. Remember it is a tablet and battery takes time to charge once it is fully discharge.

Hi Collider,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Is the device starting up at all after having been left on the charger ?
