    Another Battery Question...

    sorry. I noticed yesterday that the battery icon at the top of my screen does not match said level of battery remaining under settings. It is off by 10% right now. Is that a problem or do I just rely on my battery signal too much? Right now my battery looks full but is actually at 90%. Yesterday afternoon, the battery looked 3/4 full when it was at 50%. When the battery dropped in the red, it seemed kind of sudden, and settings said 20% remaining. I recently completed 2 full cycles of powering off to charge to 100%, drain to 15% (used settings to tell me actual battery discharge), and then recharged to 100% with the power off. Thanks for any input

    BTW, I am using a G'Nex charger if that matters. My Maxx is a G'Nex replacement, so I do not have an actual Moto charger.

    Yeah the battery icon is more relative than anything, I use the Beautiful Battery meter for mine since I hide the notification bar. The default one stays looking full until it gets to 80% then it goes down a notch, then moves again when it gets around 60 or 50 I believe.

    I believe Professor FoxKat once post a chart that shows this is normal.

    You might be able to find a Razr charger on eBay.

    I'm sure he'll chime in on this, as well as the rest of your post.

    Thanks y'all! Appreciate the helpful feedback. I regret not accepting the VZN moto charger (I told them didn't need it), but I'm learning. I've learned more about batteries, charging, & chargers in the past 2 wks than I have in my 1.5 yrs of reading Android forums/news

    All of are here to learn. We're fortunate to have Professor FoxKat share his knowledge with us.

    What does the charger have to do with it? As long as it's with in 10% +_ of the voltage and amperage of supplied unit. I use my kindle, Bluetooth, and a dual output cube from Walgreen. Never had a problem with my X2 and Maxx.

    You haven't had a problem.... yet. Or that you're aware of. Maybe you're damaging the battery/charging circuitry little by little and aren't aware of any long term effects? Or maybe you're doing no harm at all. Who knows, but why not use the charger that came with the phone and eliminate all doubt?

    I'll never understand why some people will spend upwards of $600+ for a phone and insist on charging it with $5 knockoff, all the while a factory-supplied charger is included at no extra cost. To each his own.....

    +1 for this. Works well and I like the 1% increments hack. Also comes with a cool and very handy screen lock/unlock toggle feature. I use that alot.

    And then again maybe not. I have had PDA's, phones, and smart phones since '95 and have never ruineda battery. Again the voltages and amperage produced are within 10% of the included unit. I'll never understand how some people can buy a $600 phone and not be bothered to turn the charger over and read it's voltage and amperage out put. Jezze dude it's not magic or rocket science.
