    If your tablet allows you to use it while charging there shouldn't be a problem.

    maybe i was not very specific.. The battery is charged 100% but i got this belief that when the battery is totally charged and i plug in the charger adapter the tablet automaticly stars using the the charger and not the battery. am i right or wrong? is the battery safe if is connected to the electricity when is tottaly charged?

    sorry if im not clear, my english is not very good.

    If I connect my tablet to the charger when the battery is discharged completely, I get a message saying I should wait 15 minutes before using the tablet while charging. If I connect it to the charger when the battery is not discharged completely, I don't get the message and I can immediately use the tablet while charging.

    To me, that sounds as though it always runs off the battery. When the charger is plugged in, it's charging the battery at the same time the battery is being use to run the tablet. (I've heard this referred to as a floating battery arrangement.)

    Unless the tablet is defective, it's safe to have it plugged in even though the battery is fully charged. The circuitry is supposed to prevent the battery from over charging.

    Same here, mine's plugged in most of the time. The battery's over two years old and still seems fine.
