Re: red battery symbol with lightning bolt when plugged in

Is it the battery icon at the top right?

Drained battery, I suspect.

Re: red battery symbol with lightning bolt when plugged in

Curious as to why that happened all of a sudden...playbook was plugged into a powerbar via the charging cable..I am thinking that the power bar may have given up the ghost..I had never let the battery drain that far intentionally before..Buying a new powerbar asap
