Surface Book Charger Led Indicator

Hello everybody,

I searched for this but could not really find it anywhere please excuse me if I am mistaken.
So I very recently(yesterday) got my Surface Book. My indicator switched on to white as long as I plugged it in and it started charging. I switched off the device last night (shut down) and I let it charge through the whole night. When I woke up my indicator was still white.
Mind you, the battery was 100%, both of them were at 100% when I switched it on.
Is this normal? Or should it turn green or something when it is fully charged?

The white LED on the Surface Book charger indicates that a connection to the battery is properly made. The battery is charging or maintaining charge. The LED does not turn off when the battery is charged.

I agree. It would've been nice to know "fully charged" so you feel confident just whisking it away instead of having to open it, turn on the screen, check the battery level, etc.

I think it's more akin to those old Dell laptops: the light just means the charger has power.
