    Chris G, how low do you go before charging your batter?

    After buying a new charger, the charging overnight issue was resolved. I think the Chuwi charger is defective.

    I discovered last night 4/18/15 that my Hi12 LED was blinking, but the tablet was fully charged!!! There’s something wrong with the charging…

    I have a question that seems to apply here. When I plugged my Hi12 in last night, it only charges to 48%. Granted, I have the tablet on, but it is not fully charging the battery. When I shut the tab off and plug it in, it restarts. Any ideas.

    I only have to charge it every few days due to the great battery life. I don’t use the stock charger, but a Samsung Travel fast charger that seems to do a better job than the Chuwi one!

    Chris G, what app or software do you use to monitor your battery? I need one to do some testing on my battery and chargers.

    Anyone with a recommendation for accurate battery info? I have dual boot and on windows 10 tried batteryinfo which indicated design capacity of 4984 milliamp hrs, full charge capacity 9689, battery at 98%.  On android both Aida64 and another app show battery as being reported as 6500 milliamp total.  Any ideas?

    I use battery bar, it doesn’t report the battery correctly as it says it’s only 1025 mah when it should be around 10,000-11,000.

    It’s pretty funny, but I find that the hi12 has wayyyy more battery life using Windows than using Android.
    I would have expected Win10 to be a lot more demanding and power-consumming, but I guess that the Android ROM is not optimized at all (for instance, mininum brightness is way too bright to use in bed at night).

    Hi, what that LED status means? Stock charger really slow.

    I just try two chargers.
    1) stock – LED blinking faster
    2) some other chicony – LED blinking slower

    What this means? Faster or slower charging?

    I am happy with the run times, but when it’s sleeping it still seems to use a lot of power. Have you set your power settings to something different from default (f.i. on lid close sleep or hibernate etc)

    It’s 10 hours for me with quite an active  use. Today I switched it on at 9.30 and lasted till 19.30. All the time on Android with wifi, 80 percent of the time with screen on. Read magazines for 2 hours, watched YouTube documentaries for 3 hours or more. Also watched a film from Google play Movies or whatever is called,roughly 2 hours. It was downloaded but I didn’t bother to turn off WiFi while watching it.Moreover I used Bluetooth to connect speakers but truly only for this film. Rest of the time mostly browsed the web with the occasional standby lapses.

    This has impressed me.Comparable to iPad.

    Well, this is not directly related to this post, but, I’m talking about performance so I think it’s acceptable

    I got my computer today… While the Windows 10 was doing its updates, I was using 2 tabs of Edge. Just that… My Chuwi started to getting slow, when I saw the Device Manager, it was with CPU at 100% and, with RealTemp I checked the tablet temperature in 75º C.

    In the review of techtablets, I saw that the tablet just got that temperature when playing… Did I receive a defective unit? Should I ask for a new one? Or is it normal?

    (Current Situation – no updates now, 3 tabs of edge and device manager – 60º C)
