It doesn't always seem to report 100%, or at least I'm not around to see it. Basically, as soon as it hits 100% it stops charging. It will then tick back to about 98% before it starts trickle charging back to 100% and then down to 98% etc. That's why a lot of times in the AM you will find your phone at 98% on the charger. Its normal and done to preserve battery longevity.
