Default 7100G battery only charges to 85%

Please Login to Remove!

It was at around 70% when I plugged it into the car charger for a brief time.That got it to 85%

I got home and plugged it into the usb cable, the same laptop that runs the desktop software, and even after a few hours it was still 85%

I then plugged it into wall charger overnite, and it's still 85%

how come?

I don't think its possible to get a full charge with the wireless turned on.
Probably nothing for you to worry about.
This answer is only 85% true.

That's baloney....Mine is on from 6 a.m. to midnight every day and goes from25%, 50%, etc. charge to full charge while on by simply connecting it to any power source. Make sure you have the latest software loaded.

Yes, I've noticed too that my 7100v only seems to charge up to 85% no matter how long I leave it plugged in.
