the battery icon in the system tray says 100% and still charging!! WHY? The led indicator is still lit. What does that mean?

 

Who is telling the truth? 

 

The LED that tells me that the battery is not yet fully charged by being lit up

 

or 

 

The system tray that says it is 100% charged

by holding a charge, I mean staying on for the 2-3 hours one would expect. if its not, if the battery is dying within 15 minutes of unplugging it, and it says its constantly charging, then I would say your battery is probably toast. If its staying on for the 2-3+ hours its supposed to, then I would say its nothing to worry about.

OH! I thought you were saying that after unplugging, the LED was still on :))

 

Well yes, It could stay up maybe for 1.5 hours when I am playing games or using videos so going back to the question, who will I believe?

 

The LED indicator or the system tray?

 

and how will I know when it is really 100% fully charged?

if it says 100% then its 100%. If it says still charging its most likely a bug in the system.

Oh ok... so the hardware that tells me that the battery is not yet fully charged is the problem.

And the operating system telling me it is already fully charged is the correct one. Thanks :)

if it says 100% then its 100%. If it says still charging its most likely a bug in the system.

 

wait man! someone told me the reason the LED is still on after the system says 100% is that it is for extending the battery life??? so does that mean that my battery can still have more battery life by still charging it like that until the LED is off?

I tend to leave mine plugged in 95% of the time, when I unplug my laptop it drops the performance to save battery  which annoys me, so I honestly couldnt tell ya.
