Your battery gauge is lying to you (and it's not such a bad thing) - xda-developers
Read this. Everyone's phone does that it's normal.
Yeah lol, if you're not impressed over a Dx1 you don't know what to look for.
Anyway, it is a glitch in the reading of the battery, it doesn't actually drop that much. It does the same thing on an extended battery, even 10% sometimes, but I get 24-36 hours from my extended, so no way am I dropping 10% in 1 minute.
I have noticed, after it reboots and shows the drop, it will drop slower after that, sometimes sticking at its current level for some time.
Hopefully we'll see a software update to fix it. If not. I really could care less since its not really using up my battery.

Good bye MOTO
Exactly -- hemorrdoid (lol awesome name) is correct. I texted this out and restarted 4-5 times just to see if I could get it to 0%. It stopped at about 30% and spent the next 10 hours at 28%. The battery gauge is a farce - don't trust it and enjoy your phone!
Although I admit the Droid X is a nice phone, it doesn't compare to the Thunderbolt at all. I wouldn't give up the ability to root for anything. But to each his/her own.
