    Hey guys, yeah it's me again. I got a BP7X a few days ago and installed and calibrated Battery Left, and while it says my phone has 0%, the phone is saying it is at 40%. Should I just assume the stock gauge is correct? Does the phone recognize the BP7X and adjust?

    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks again.

    This is a not well known issue.

    Some people here will tell you that "you're doing it wrong," in regards to your battery, when we can barely squeeze out 10 hours with a BP7X, all the while they can pull almost two days out of theirs.

    I wish we could find a fix.

    I would rely on internal gauge for the right percentage. Try battery diviner for real world predictions on battery estimation, based on your own usage.

    If you want 1% battery increments - use circle battery widget.

    Try circle battery widget, it reads battery level from the same system file that your notification bar gauge uses, and displays 1% increments without any calibration needed.
