    10% in 6 minutes???

    So... I woke up this morning wit 100% battery life.

    I sent 7 text messages, updated 1 app (lookout) and was on facebook and listened to music for all of 6 minutes... And I was already down to 90%... I also run go launcher ex.

    I know the dinc stock battery sucks but... Isn't that a little extreme?

    It sounds normal to me. My phone never stays on 100% very long!

    This has to do with the charge / ps supply controller.
    Li-ion doesn't like being at full charge for a long time, it is taxing on the life of the battery.
    To counteract this effect, plugging the phone will allow the battery to charge to 100%, and then disconnect from the wall supply and let the battery drain to 90% or so. I think it repeats this duty cycle indefinitely.
    So depending on when you unplug, you could be anywhere between 90 and 100%.

    Well, my battery widget showed I was at 100%, and this isn't new, my battery has sucked since I took my phone out of the box

    Yeah it only shows 10% increments. I think it rounds up also.

    Actually it rounds down. I use minimalistic text for a battery widget (it does 1%), when it gets to 93% there it goes to 90% on my battery icon. Calibration of the battery helps give the best representation of true battery levels. Dl the app battery calibration (needs root). Awesome app
