Im only guessing here, but is it possible this is an advanced power management option that does not charge until you drop below a certain threshold? (its at 95% battery right now). Again just a guess, but could be a full blown bug., hopefully someone knows.

W10 seems to be working flawlessly on this 100 dollar tablet otherwise, it seems faster than 8.1 which i was not expecting tbh.

It could be a power management-related option. My thoughts would be to prevent the "state of charge phenomena", where the battery gets messed up from being overcharged and incorrectly reads the full and empty points (crude explanation, but it works). If you're at 95%, you really don't need to plug it in. Though, it certainly wouldn't hurt to contact MicroCenter and see what they say about it. thumb.gif

The "phenomena" exists with a lot of rechargeable batteries, it just gets renamed.

You can upgrade to Windows 10 manually, but it isn't through Windows Update and since it's not supported, you run into issues.

@OP: For WinBook, there are certain Windows 10 builds that work and some that don't, at least thats how it was with Windows 10 tech previews. No idea now. Last I checked (about three weeks ago) there were no working Windows 10 builds for the WinBook.

I updated right through windows update, process was the exact same as on my laptop (and other than this charge thing) everything is working perfectly.


I use it as a HTPC so i keep it plugged in all the time, i guess ill just keep an eye on if it starts charging after it hits a certain battery %. If not, i guess ill have to do a warranty replacement. But ya, everything else works great in windows 10 ive noticed no other issues.
