Default Battery charging - 02-06-2011, 05:59 PM

Is there a way to see the extent of the battery charging with the 1018? I've been plugging in the power cord when the 10% nag popup appears but I don't know when the battery is fully charged other than disconnecting the power cord and looking at the tray symbol. Some type of charging progress bar maybe? Anything like that out there, perhaps a 3rd party app?

I am not sure how yours is set up. Mine when I hover over it while plugged in and not completely charged shows the percentage charged. I did install the dell battery drivers from their site... so not sure if it is win7 pro that is doing it or if it is the drivers.

Hovering over the tray icon did the trick. It's gone from 7% to 70% in about an hour. That's surprising but I'm glad it's not taking 6+ hours. Thanks for the solution!
