    This is more of a personal pet peeve rather than a major problem, but I was wondering if anyone else experiences this same scenario. After unplugging my Droid 2 in the morning, the meter will be full but about an hour later will seem to have already lost 10% without any use. This did not happen on my D1. Then throughout the day this same battery loss does not occur as usually at night I am still left with about 50-60% with use.

    Mine does the same thing. My guess is it's just an ism of how the battery is measured and reported.

    Personally, I'd rather have 95% and be reported as 90%, than have 91% and have it reported as 100%. Maybe a dev can provide better insight.

    Yeah, it's just weird that it would lose 10% in the first hour but then only 40% in the next 12.

    Its not losing 10%, its probably losing in the neighborhood of 5% ish but because it is reported in 10% incriments it looks like 10%

    I saw this thread and didn't want to create a new one but I have a quick question. How can you change the battery meter on the status bar?

    You can't change it as far as im aware. it has to stay there. You can however get a free battery meter from the market, you'll just have two battery meters on your notification bar. I bought one that shows me the percentage number within the battery icon. Its far more useful than the default battery icon.

    You can change your battery meter with a theme or just by using metamorph.

    Pretty sure I got to be rooted to use custom themes and do I have to be rooted to use metamorph?
