Have a few spare laptops around the house from tech donation when I left my old job (my director said "they'll just sit around otherwise, at least you'll use them.")
Battery's shot on one of them, but it's obviously fine when plugged in. My wife is using one of them right now, so I walked over to check model numbers to look for a replacement battery on Ebay. She asks what I'm doing, and I let her know. She asks why I think the battery's shot. I point to the orange flashing "NOT CHARGING" indicator.
"No, hon, it is charging. Look."
Unplugs laptop. Aaaaaand whatever she was doing is gone now, since the battery's not charging. She looked at me and said:
"Okay, maybe not."
