Red face 10v 6 Cell Recharge Times - 02-06-2010, 02:15 AM

Hello all, this is my first post here. I am very happy with my purchase of the Mini 10v. I am currently running Ubuntu 9.10 on it. I was wondering what kind of recharge times other Mini 10v users were getting with their 6 cell batteries. It seems to me that my recharge times are a bit long. I haven't compiled any accurate readings yet, but it seems that charging from around 10% to 100% takes approximately 4-5 hours. This is with the system up and running. I presume that it may be considerably faster with the system turned off. (Would there be any indication of when it is fully charged if it is turned off?) What are everyone else's numbers like?

if the system is powered off and charging the power light stays on, when the unit is charged the power light goes off.....thats the way it is on the 1010, and would imagine the 1011 works far as the other point, I have never let mine go down to 10% so I couldnt tell ya...when mine hits about 40% I charge it..I read somewhere that is good for the battery, at 40% mine takes about 1-1 1/2 hrs to fully charge back to 100, when it is on and I am using it it takes about 3hrs..hope this helps ya..
