Re: Thinkpad Tablet Battery Took Long Time To Fully Charge

2012-04-27, 2:13 AM

@ONeill,

 

Very good to know, but the real complaint is the fact that the AC adapter w/USB Cord charges much more slowly than the Dock.  How is that explained?

I realize how the batteries work. But as the person said above the question of why a wall charger takes so much longer than a dock is inexplanable. I am not going to pack a dock with me when I travel just so I can use a device that should be able to charge normally for business power users.

Re: Thinkpad Tablet Battery Took Long Time To Fully Charge

Is there any difference between the supplied USB cable and any other USB > Micro USB data cable?

 

 

When I first charged the tablet I was rather impressed by how long it took... I thought, wow, charging at 2 A and still taking that long, this thing's gotta have the ultimate battery life ;)

 

Cheers

I did not own the supplied cable long enough to know if there are any differences, but I have been able to charge the TPT with 2 other USB cables at decent rates when turned off.

Seems strange for me, too.
why dont they sell a small quick charger like others had to build by their self?



And for the glove, you can really bridge a gap in the market.
I still need one and will ask my grandma to knit one for me, maybe in noLove colors.
(Wool can be itchy,but is good for getting air to your hand)

If it looks good I will show you a picture and start to sell them.

Need a quick charger? Ever heard of using your own hands? Get a 2.5 or 3 A power supply and solder a micro usb cable onto it. No guarantee on the life span of your battery though :smileyvery-happy:

A number of people have actually made fast, portable chargers which plug into the docking port. I have limited knowledge of electronics and no access to relevant tools, so I am unable to make one. But I would gladly purchase one if someone decides to start selling them. While the Lenovo dock is cheap in the US (and maybe Europe), it remains forbidingly expensive elsewhere. Plus it's just too much trouble carrying it around.
