    I swear a quarter of the User Manual is dedicated to "Caution", "Warning", "Compliance", etc.

    I suppose this is an artifact of our litigious society.

    Having said the above, cautions and warnings regarding the use of Li-Ion batteries is warranted.

    I don't care which company manufactures the battery or uses the battery in the device they market, lithium is nasty stuff.

    I'm sure over the past few years you have heard of all the Li-Ion battery recalls by many big name battery manufactures and device manufactures.

    The reason for the recalls, when things go wrong with a Li-Ion battery, they go wrong big time.

    Li-Ion batteries can rupture, can explode and can catch fire (BTW, don't use water on a lithium fire).

    As a result, for safety purposes, almost all Li-Ion batteries have internal circuitry (yes, inside the battery) that monitors voltage, current flow and temperature (yes, there is a thermistor inside the battery).

    I believe what Toshiba is saying is if the device is turned off and the battery is charged, disconnect the AC adapter/charger (as a precaution).

    I agree with Toshiba.

    Bottom line : Handle, charge and dispose of Li-Ion batteries with care.

    Good point. It does seem like the lawyers had a field day with this one.

    It seems in my experience some have circuitry to limit the amount of charge in the battery, and shut off charging when full. Some don't. Usually when they don't they put some warning to this effect. I'm hoping it's just caution on Toshiba's part...but I have my concerns.

    Here is the link to the user manual of the Australian AT100:

    Support :: Toshiba

    Got less pages than that of Thrive, and in page 62...
    Please note that Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) function is not supported.
    And then it mentioned the maximum capacity of SDXC memory cards is 64GB, aren 't all the Toshiba reps telling us it supports up to 128GB? We shall test it out later and see if the manual needs clarification.

    In page 65...there comes a sample image of how to insert a sim card in the future 3G version!
    Page 66...this tablet supports FAT12/16/32/exFAT format for USB memory and USB hard drives...no NTFS
    And page 67...do not connect or disonnect an HDMI device or from the tablet when the tablet is in Sleep or Hibernation Mode, and please wait at least 5 seconds before unplug and re-plug the HDMI cable again, kind of strange

    Content Details

    Seems that the user's guide has been updated recently, Strill trying to see what has been added/changed was thinking that maybe they added the sleep issue under "if something goes wrong" but didn't see anything.
