Charging the Intel® Powerpack™ Battery:

To charge the Intel® Powerpack™ Battery, connect the supplied charging cable to the Intel® Powerpack™ Battery and to the supplied AC adapter. Connect the AC adapter to a wall socket. Charging will begin immediately.

During the charging process the current battery state and the progress of the charging process is indicated by the LEDs. As shown in the table above, the number of permanently lit LEDs represent the charging progress. Additionally, as the next higher LED begins flashing, the next charging step is not yet finished. The charging process can be interrupted any time by unplugging the battery and the AC adapter. When the charging process is finished and the full capacity of the battery is reached, all five LEDs will keep flashing simultaneously as long as the battery remains connected to the AC adapter.

When charging is finished, just unplug the battery and the AC adapter.
