    I got a motorola droid 1. Phone seems to drop from 100 to 90 in about 30 minutes to an hour but then hangs at 90% for around 2 hours. So when it says 90%, does it actually mean more like 90-99% or does it mean that 10% has been used? thanks.

    Bigeric I also have a D1. I have been using battery monitor it gives approximate % in single digits. I have found it pretty accurate. I'm rooted and I don't know if that means anything or not for accuracy. HTH.
