    Ah, I'm looking at the 6000 one. It says that it charges Android devices at speeds of up to 1 amp only. are you able to charge the AVTN8 normally on that with your OEM cable or is it a really slow charge? (that's why I was looking at the 6400 one which seems to have 2A but has that disclaimer about Asus tablets) Thanks again. This is very arcane to me.

    It seems it is 2 A, with the battery attached cable.
    I obtain 3 to 4 W, as battery bar tell me.

    Update: Just got it, it is currently charging. It appears that the sticker on the back shows 2014/04 - so April - better than February, I guess.

    I haven't yet had a look at the insides, but I'll probably do that soon if I figure out an easy way of getting the back off without scratching it.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to use the included Office license on another PC? I will not have much use for Office on an 8" tablet...

    the 6000 one that thierryb posted most likely, depending on what's available around me. are you thinking of getting one as well? I wouldn't mind a slightly higher charge rate but eh.

    I also came across that so picked one up in the event I need a shorted cable for whatever reason since it's so cheap. I think that's shorted anyway...

    I also finally managed to get my sleep (connected standby) battery drain down to 5% over 8h from 30-40%, this link amongst others was really helpful.

    http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/thr...attery-drain-issues-possible-solutions.56912/

    I went through disabling different things for a few days and it seems it was the chrome updater in task scheduler that was doing it for me. I just set it to only run on AC power and that seems to have done the trick.
