As I keep getting asked the same questions
regarding AV-TS R6 battery charge status indicators, I'm putting this to
print. Please save this email for reference
status indicator definitions are as follows:
"Charging" indicates that AC power is
present and the battery is being charged. There is no indication on the
screen as to how much charge is on the battery.
"Low" indicates that the unit is running on battery power and
no AC is present. Currently WinCE 2.12 will only show "low" regardless of
the state of the battery charge. At present software revisions (4.1.11), it is only useful as an indicator
that AC is not present and the battery is the power
"High" indicates that the battery is
disconnected from the unit (or not present), but obviously AC is present
otherwise the unit wouldn't power up.
The only indicator that is working correctly is the
"Charging" indicator. The definitions above at least give you some idea as
to what is really happening in the system.
"High" is the only status displayed no matter what is happening
with the power. Even
with present software revisions
(4.3.5), that status display
is not useful as a charge/discharge indicator.
There are software development efforts in process
to display accurate charge information,
but I've not seen a status update on it in some time.
