Battery ever charge 100%?

Battery ever charge 100%?

I have been noticing that even though I leave my Instinct plugged in all night long, in the morning when I see the battery level, it only shows 90%. Is that normal?

I just figured anything from 90 to 99 would show as 90%...so the instant you take your phone off the charger it is not at 100% anymore thus showing 90%...Just my thought.

Both mine say 90%, I have yet to see it at 100%. I'm guessing that's the norm.

Do you charge your phone with the phone off or on? I wonder if that would matter. I've been leaving my phone on while charging. I will test it tonight and turn it off when I plug it for charging.

I have used both the extra charger (battery was in charger all night and just installed) says 90%. Just as my phone was plugged in all night and this morning read 90%.

LOL... Cool.

Last night I tested charging my battery with the phone off. This morning, I turned on the phone and immediately checked the battery level. It did show 100% for a second. Then it went down to 90%. I think the moment everything starts running, the level drops from 100%. On the other hand, the level was pretty good through the day. I don't use my phone much. I had a couple of calls, surfed the web a little, ran the GPS for 15 minutes and listened to music for 20 minute. When I got home, the battery level was still 80%. Not bad.

Mine does the same thing and I charge it with the phone off. I still can't get the battery cover off my phone to save my life to try the other battery.
