    Is the charging light in the cord supposed to stay on even after the device is 100% charged?

    Mine does and I couldn't find any information on it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks!

    So the light being on only signifies that the device s plugged in?

    I guess if that's if in two weeks that's the only thing I found not to my liking, this is a great device. :)

    The idiot light or idiotic light, always on brightly and annoyingly large.
    Lets hope Surface 4 improves that with smaller, dimmer, and colors to indicate charging, charged, connected not charging.

    Simple fix for the light is to either use another micro USB cable, or if you don't mind get a black sharpie (permanent marker) and careful colour over the light to dim the light.
    The sharpie trick works well I have a hardliner USB charging socket in my car and did this trick to dim down the bright blue light a little.
