            When your Cius is powered down and connected to a charging device, the Home key LED indicates whether the Cius has enough charge to boot. If the LED is white, the battery is charging but does not have sufficient charge to boot. If the LED is red, the battery is charging and there is sufficient charge to boot. After the Cius has booted, battery charge status is indicated only on the notification bar.
