    Wondering why when I use the 1% hack and take my phone off the charger, it immediately jumps to 99% after coming off a full charge? It should read 100%.

    I can't tell you why (FoxKat?) but mine does it too and also did it before installing Battery Indicator Pro. I presume it is because, once it's off the charger, it's used power and is not at 100% anymore, although it does happen pretty quickly.

    I am using the free (non pro) Battery Indicator and it has the 1% hack as well. This jumps to 99% immediately. Like Sally, I assumed that it technically was not 100% if it used any juice at all.

    I switched back to10%. I don't know but for some reason I find myself watching my battery more when it's set to 1%. It's crazy I know!! :)

    Down load the Battery Indicator Pro app in the market and select 1% hack in the settings

    Not really an expert on battery monitors but I do know that they don't actually measure battery capacity. They measure the voltage provided by the battery in relation to a theoretical maximum. Depending on the algorithm used, anything less than a 1 to 1 ratio will yield less than 100%. And as your battery ages, it will fail to reach that absolute maximum even when it reaches its full charge.

    This is the reason, by the way, that manufacturers of devices recommend that you fully discharge (or nearly fully discharge) your lithium ion battery about once a month. It doesn't increase battery life; it increases the accuracy of the battery monitor in evaluating the drop in voltage over a complete discharge of the battery.

    So, in other words, if you really don't care about pinpoint accuracy of your battery indicator, there's no real reason to completely discharge your battery? :blink:

    I've not read this by Motorola. The recommendation I've seen by them is to not discharge your battery below 25%.

    As far as training your battery, FoxKat addressed that in another thread.
