Re: Thinkpad EDGE E530

Hi thedatazoo,

Don't worry, this only indicates there's power pass through your machine. The light will keep on even when you remove battery. And your battery will stop charging when it reach full charge (charge level can be customised in Power Manager). And you can always monitor your battery's condition in power manager. Hope this helps

Re: Thinkpad EDGE E530

the indicator light just shows you that the Power adapter is working and providing a dc current to the laptop. If that light goes off, this will indicate that your AC adapter is faulty (most likely).

Re: Thinkpad EDGE E530

I'm no expert on battery charging, but if you wnat to preserve the battery then I'd avoid using it on AC power once the battery is charged. My office Compaq laptops tend to get used this way and always wreck the batteries in a fairly short time. The Samsungs have a utility to extend battery laife that stops charging at 80% and is recommended if you habitually use the laptop plugged in - they clearly think that constantly recharginging from 99%to 100% is bad for the battery too.
