Will Pro8 docking station continue charging even when battery full?


#1

When using the Pro8 docking station, I often have the Dell Venue Pro tablet at full charge. Will the docking station continue charging even when the tablet’s battery is full? I worry that eventually this might damage the internal battery, as often happens with laptops when you leave them always plugged in…

The Venue 8 Pro will charge no differently on the Pro8 than if you left the tablet connected to the stock charger in that the tablet only pulls the power it needs and cannot lead to an over charged condition that is damaging to lithium ion batteries.

It is good to occasionally run the battery down and charge it back up, but there shouldn’t be much harm leaving it connected to the dock/charger for extended durations.
