    Explain.

    I have always used my devices while they are charging, just not extensively.

    Use while charging: Is it okay to have your device on while charging it?
    Lead acid: It's okay to have device on when charging.
    Nickel-base: It's always best to turn the device off during a charge, since a parasitic load can either alter full-charge detection, overcharge the battery, and/or cause mini-cycles.
    Lithium Ion: It's always best to turn the device off during a charge, since a parasitic load can either alter full-charge detection, overcharge the battery, and/or cause mini-cycles.

    I use it in my vehicle and I always have it plugged in. Likewise with my Samsung 4.2. I haven't seen any problem.

    I have a charger at my desk, one at each of my easy chairs, one in my car, and I'm always topping up and using while charging. I've done this for years with no problems.

    For li-ion that USED to be the case but they created protection circuits for just that reason. Here's a rundown by TI on how they use it but every phone/tablet uses it now.

    yes. i have read it online, it is best just to plug it in while using the laptop. but asus tech told me that it is better not to use it while it is charging.

    yes. the problem might be when you have it unplugged, then you will notice that the battery won't last long.

    ASUS just released some new charger stands for the N7 that are tilted to allow easy viewing while charging. I don't think they would do that if it really was harmful to use while charging!

    If I use mine for an extended period plugged in to watch a video or Netflix it reboots

    I don't believe it's harmful; if it was, tech sites would know about it and no one would be using their device while charging. Where are you getting that it is harmful?

    It isnt harmful to use this tablet while charging, although if you happen to be rooted and are overclocked it might warm up quite a bit so be careful if thats the case. Hope i was able to help out

    i used it while it was charging. for unknown reason, after i got it back for the 2nd repair, the battery started to decrease really quickly. i chatted with asus tech online, the guy told me that it is better not to use it while it is charging. i also chatted with a google playstore nexus 7 tech, he told me from his personal experience that it seems to decrease the battery power.



    A portable device should be turned off while charging. This allows the battery to reach the threshold voltage unhindered and reflects the correct saturation current responsible to terminate the charge. A parasitic load confuses the charger.
