just curious :confused:

i pressed by accident when picking it up, it's near where the little green lights are that flash when your charing it up.

Thanks :) :apple:

it's a gauge telling you how much charge there is. it's helpful when you're curious and your laptop is off.

It shows the battery level with the 5 green lights.

It's a charge indicator. When you press it, the green lights will tell you how much charge is left on your battery.

It's for displaying the battery life.

Edit: Beaten to it! ;)

It makes the lights flash on the battery to show much charge it has. It blinks on one light if very low.
It's also handy to know that if all of the sudden your computer won't turn on w. battery only, push the button and if it blinks - it's too little battery to start. Stick it on the charger and it'll start up.

quick responses :)

thats a neat idea, i knew they flashed when it was charging but wondered why they didn't do anything when it wasn't

cheers

You're confusing the keys that are on PC keyboards. Press any key to begin the self destruct process.

yeah... charge indicator! I think its helpful if you are carrying a spare. It works when the battery is detached from the notebook!
