    G75 Laptop and USB Charger Plus questions

    A couple questions about the USB charger plus...

    First, in the systray utility there is a setting to set the threshold to stop quick charging. Which way does that work? Say I set the charger threshold to 20%. Does that mean the charger only quick charges to 20% then turns off? Or does that mean it only charges quickly after the battery is 20% full? Similarly is the setting is 70%, does that mean it charges quick to 70% then turns off or how does this work?

    Second question.. is there any way to indicate or show that quick charge is actually functioning? I plug in my phone and although it shows it is charging, (I assume the correct USB port is the one with the lightning bolt) there is no indication if it is just standard charge or in quick charge mode...

    Thoughts?

    First question: this means when you are charging while on "battery", when the battery gets down to "20%" the Asus USB charger plus will stop charging your device.
    This option helps by keeping your battery from completely being discharged.

    Second question: If you enter BIOS in second tab and check there if it's "enabled".
    The front right side USB port is the "
    Asus USB charger plus" port.

    Hope this helps?

    OK I have the charger ICON in the systray.. is it supposed to change state when something is plugged in and charging? Say a cellphone or mp3 player etc? So far although there is a grey icon in the systray, nothing indicates that anything is doing any charging, especially at the high speed, when anything is plugged in.
