Nexus 7 battery charging. The quick start guide advised charging

Resolved Question:

Nexus 7 battery charging. The quick start guide advised charging battery as soon as could be. That is the first thing I did but how to tell it is fully charged - no indicator,no message appeared.Allowed connection to charge all night but the message was that the battery was low. Question - how many hours to be fully charged.

Hi Donald and welcomed to,

My name isXXXXX will assist you with your Android issues.

Regarding your Nexus 7, it will take about 4-6 hours to fully charge the tablet. Please try to connect your tablet to computer or use another micro USB charger to charger your tablet. See if the battery will move after an hour.

Thanks Donald,

Do you have the tablet and the power charger with you now?

If yes, please plug into a power plug and connect your Nexus 7 tablet. Does the tablet show charging? If yes, please wait for 10-15 minutes to see if it will show a larger %.

Yes ,the device is with me still connected to a power socket to which I left it for another 3 hours (had to go out). There is no battery sign until pressing the small ON button which opens at the WiFi screen where a very small battery sign appears with a RED line beneath it. Does this indicate fully charged battery?

Does your battery indicate more than 14% now than yesterday?
