    What the heck happened to my battery?

    I've been running 11 hours since unplugged and the battery meter says 93% remaining. Did something change in the world of Thunderbolt? Or is this just a freak of nature?

    Unless you're rooted with a downclocking kernel and you set down your phone and you haven't touched it since, yeah that's a freak of nature. Though with this latest radio, even on 4G, I notice much longer battery times. I was out for 4+ hours today and never got under 80% even with some heavy usage.

    I unrooted about three weeks ago, so that is not it. I would not say I had heavy usage yesterday but it was used...couple phone calls, check email every 15 minutes, pulled up a mpa to locate a place I had to go for lunch (did not navigate to it) and googled a couple items about snowmobiling. Alarms went off a few times for appointment reminders.

    Who knows. It will be interesting to see if it happens again today. Maybe Verizon is working on cell towers to let us have LTE...maybe the frequency changed and made my TB happy. LOL

    idk I think this phone has problems reading battery. If you do a restart for example u lose battery power, and it varies. I've lost from 5% to 20% before.

    Another thing I noticed is with my extended battery it stays on 100% for about 4 hours with normal use. And then over a course of two hours it goes down to 85-90%. Which is strange. A lot of battery drain from 100 to 90.

    So maybe it's just reading it bad.

    I agree. Seems like the battery reader on the phone doesn't work right

    Mine does the same thing if I restart the phone I lose 5 to 10 percent and I hate that really bright HTC intro I'm sure it does eat a lil bit of the battery... Charge to 100 and keep restarting the phone and see if it dies after 10 reboot haha.

    The battery meter has never had a problem before. Why would it just start having a problem in the last three days? I have rebooted just to see if it was out of calibration but it stays the same.

    This is day three and I have the exact same results. After 10 hours I am above 90% remaining. I used it quite a bit today at lunch time using navigation and my OBDII bluetooth reader. I got it down to 88% after 11 hours.

    Something is different. The only thing I can account for is we deployed a new wireless network at work. It has an incredibly strong signal. Maybe my phone is not fighting to stay connected now.

    is there an app that really gives the correct battery reading. I sometimes restart the phone and lose 10%. Something not recording correctly
